The Darling: 9/5/2022

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

If you’ve not done so already, please register for District Assembly on Saturday. This is going to be a great opportunity to plan for the year ahead, and to discuss strategies and successes with our colleagues in different Clubs.

Otherwise, I’m looking forward to seeing you all on Wednesday with our guest speaker, Shirley LePlanche. Shirley will be talking about her experiences as a self-published author and selling copies of her book “The Fatal Path”, a psychological thriller which quickly becomes impossible to put down.
