Dear members and friends of the Rotary Club of Sydney Darling Harbour,

New South Wales has just passed the 50% fully vaccinated mark! It’s hard to believe, but the light at the end of this lock-down tunnel is getting brighter by the day, and before too long we’ll be able to return our natural habitats of working-bees, in-person meetings and barbecues. In the interim, the Rotary Club of Sydney Darling Harbour is committed to helping you stay engaged and happy throughout the last few weeks of lock-down, and hopefully long after!

Hang in there everybody! We’re almost through!

Final Thoughts

Flamingoes are only pink because of chemicals called carotenoids in the algae and fish (which also eat the algae) they eat; their feathers are grayish white when they’re born.

Well, that’s it from me. Don’t forget that our next meeting is scheduled for 7.30AM on Wednesday the 22ndof September, taking place online. For more information, including how to access the meeting remotely, please visit rotarydarlingharbour.org.au/events/digital-club-meeting-22-9-2021/
