Dear members and friends of the Rotary Club of Sydney Darling Harbour,
I know. I missed you too.
I apologise for temporary hiatus in our newsletters. As discussed in previous editions, the Club needed to take some time to refocus, and work out what our future looks like. The past few years have held a lot of challenges which has made our work more vital, but also more difficult to do. And we’ve seen that difficulty play out across our partners in Rotary service, with different work-patterns impacting attendance and engagement. It was clear that Rotary generally and our Club specifically needed to make changes to remain vibrant, active, and above-all useful to the various initiatives we strive to support.

I’m happy to report that our time has been well spent. With the easing COVID restrictions we have physical events in the pipeline, and partners eager to work with us to make the world a better place. Established Rotary programs like RYLA, MUNA and NYSF are continuing, and we look forward to supporting their work in the future. And with our evening meetings and subsequent casual dinners, fellowship will continue to be a core of what we do. Rotarians strive to be truthful, but I’d encourage you to review the agenda of our next event if you would like to keep me honest.

As always, the core of this newsletter is our list of upcoming events for the next month. I would encourage you to watch this space, as the priority for this year’s board is to ensure our calendar is brimming with opportunities to learn, grow, and be of service to other people.

Final Thoughts

The albatross almost never flaps its wings while flying across the ocean. It uses “dynamic soaring” and “slope soaring” to carve through the air, gaining velocity from wind gradients. It can cover almost 1,000km every day, all without a single wing-flap.

Well, that’s it from me. Don’t forget that our next meeting is our changeover on Wednesday the 27th of July at 6PM. For more information, please visit https://rotarydarlingharbour.org.au/events/club-meeting-27-7-2022-2/

Until next week,
Drew Sturgiss
President
Rotary Club of Sydney Darling Harbour
