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

With lock-down mercifully now wrapping up, my friends and I have found ourselves struck by an ironic conundrum: with us all having so many people to visit, scheduling has become a nightmare! To help make your calendar a bit easier to manage, please find some key dates to keep in mind below:

  1. 2021 Rotary Club of Sydney Darling Harbour Changeover – Wednesday the 1st of December
  2. First In-Person Meeting – Wednesday the 8th of December
  3. District Conference – Friday the 18th to Sunday the 20th of March (Purchase your tickets at www.trybooking.com/events/landing?eid=808939)

As you can see, we have a lot to lock forward to. And speaking of bright futures, I am please to report that New Generations Director John D’Alessandri and International Services Director Mike Mazza have been working hard to strengthen our relationship with the Alexandria Park Community School. The Darlings will be providing support for awards recognising academic excellence and social commitment and working with the school to produce a fundraiser to support our involvement with them. I hope to have more to report in this space soon, but suffice to say the school will soon serve as an example of some of the great work this Club does.

Upcoming Events

‘Saving the Oceans’ Ambaree Majumder, presented by Rotary Club of Sydney’s Climate Action Group

You are invited to hear Ambaree Majumder explain what ‘Saving the Oceans’ really means and how our perception of the oceans needs to change. Oceans are not just a seafood bank but a great friend of ours in our fight against Climate Change. Therefore, we must come together to save the oceans so that we can save ourselves.

Final Thoughts

Tigers’ skin is actually striped, just like their fur. Also, no two fur patterns are alike.

Well, that’s it from me. Don’t forget that our next meeting is scheduled for 7.30AM on Wednesday the 10th of November, taking place online. For more information, including how to access the meeting remotely, please visit rotarydarlingharbour.org.au/events/club-meeting-10-11-2021/
