We stormed Eynesbury on Wednesday 11 October

Our intrepid BBQ team of Rex, Alan H, Gavan, Vic, Chris and JP experienced some of the worst conditions we have ever worked in at Eynesbury College. Our brave heroes endured all that nature could throw at them – pelting rain, gale force winds and BBQ burners constantly going out. We lost the shelter at one stage as it took off – the ratchet ties we were using saved us from chasing it down to Victoria Square. You can see from the pics that we operated under duress. All the food was taken into the college and served to the staff and students in more peaceful surrounds. We fed 180 and our nett for the 3 hours was $792.95, not a bad hourly rate. Even though we all went home soaked to the skin, it was an event to remember, maybe not with fondness!

On Thursday Gavin, Vic, John R and Chris along with Wayne Brown, his friend Phil, Chris from Police Credit Union, 2 teachers and 15 girls from Wilderness School spent the morning at Cudlee Creek planting 800 trees. This event had been postponed because of rain so Rex, who would usually handle this gig, could not make it due to a previously booked interstate trip.

RI Theme for 2017-18

In 2017-18, we’ll answer the question “What is Rotary?” with RI President-elect Ian H.S. Riseley’s theme, Rotary: Making a Difference. “Whether we’re building a new playground or a new school, improving medical care or sanitation, training conflict mediators or midwives, we know that the work we do will change people’s lives — in ways large and small — for the better.”

Theme 2017-18
