Club Meeting News - 4 May 2021
President Kevin welcomed all members and guest Sabina Allman.
Tony Clifford gave a toast to all the volunteers and frontline workers who worked so hard during the 2019-2020 fire season – SES, RFS, Red Cross, Rotary and many others.
Sally O’Neill advised the Quiz Night has been scheduled for Thursday, 24 June at the Golf Club.
Eleanor Chevor reported that the first D-Café held on 28 April was very successful with a good number of people attending, mostly with their carers. The first session was spent with people getting to know each other and sharing morning tea. At subsequent sessions some activities and gentle exercise will be introduced. The next session will be held on 26 May.
Guest Speaker
There was no guest speaker this meeting as it was a Committees Night so the members broke into Committee Groups.
Sadly for us, Susan Law has resigned from the club as she is moving to the Southern Highlands. Susan was farewelled and we thank her for her fellowship and all her she has done for our club since joining. She has been a great member of the club and she will be missed. Susan gave a wonderful speech which she has given permission to be included in the Bulletin.
Susan’s Farewell Speech
“This Club is made up of interesting, motivated, concerned people who care for their community both at the Club level, local community, Australian and global. Not only do you care, but you do something about it whenever you see a need or an opportunity.  
There are some amazing motivators among you, some who take responsibility for the onerous administration of the Club and others who put up their hands when hard yakka is needed – all of you working together to make a truly awesome team.
Message:  It is often our very differences which add strength and range to our resources and therefore our ability to serve - be true to your own personal vision AND tolerant of those who see their membership role as different from yours.
To President Kevin: I know that you have been unable to carry out your ambitious plans for your Presidential year, however, I admire and respect the manner in which you modified your expectations, motivated and enabled the use of new technology and held us together to enable the Club to get through and come out even stronger than before.
To the rest of you, it has been my privilege to be a member of the Northbridge Rotary Club. I will miss both my role in the Club as well as the relationships I have developed and the friendships I have made with its members. 
Ian and I will be moving to a small acreage in Glenquarry, just outside Bowral in the Southern Highlands. There will always be a cup of tea or coffee, some cake and even a bed available for any of you if ever you are in that part of the world – you all have my mobile number!
With best wishes for a happy, healthy and productive future to the Club.”
A little bit of humour ....
If anyone has any jokes or funny stories, feel free to send them to me for the humour section of the Bulletin! 
Comedy Evening Raises Funds for Streetwork
129 people enjoyed a fun evening raising over $3,700 to assist our local Streetwork Charity.
Streetwork is a local community organisation, founded 41 years ago, working with 'at risk' young people affected by crime, mental health issues, violence, destructive relationships, social isolation, homelessness, those disengaged from school or with poor employment opportunities and those impacted by alcohol and substance abuse, to turn their lives around. 
Thank you to our comedians Tommy Dean, Daniel Townes, Bruce Griffiths & Oliver Phommavanh for putting on a fabulous show & all our generous donors for supporting a worthwhile cause.
Northbridge Rotary Bookstall is Back in Business
Thanks to Northbridge Plaza management, the Northbridge Rotary Club bookstall is back in business at Northbridge Plaza on the third Sunday of every month from 9am to 5pm.
The Club is selling a range of adult fiction at $3 each plus childrens’ books at $2 each; all in mint condition. 
Books can be purchased with cash or via credit card. As always, all of the money raised from these sales goes to a range of worthy causes. 
THE 4 - WAY TEST of the things we say or do

1). Is it the TRUTH?

2). Is it FAIR to all concerned?


4). Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
