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

It’s that time of year again, there are two Christmas BBQs in our short term future! Glebe Public School’s BBQ at the Sydney Children’s Christmas Concert on December 10, and our annual Uniting Harris Community Centre Nativity Event on the 16th. My fondest Christmas memories are behind a BBQ, so I hope to see you there!

Also, on a personal note, my family’s Christmas miracle came a little early this year. I am now an Uncle, and my sister’s child Lachlan Sydney McHugh entered the world on the 14th of November. He’s happy and healthy, mum and baby are doing well! Any advice on uncle-ing would be most welcome, though I am familiar with the tradition of stealing noses.

Prince Alfred Park

Our friends at Glebe Public school will be participating in the Sydney Children’s Christmas Concert this year, selling snags and drinks to hungry concert goers. Funds raised will be used to support the school and its ongoing community work. In order to help make the event a success, they’ve asked for us to lend a hand. Whether behind the grill, working the cash register or selling drinks and merchandise, they would greatly appreciate our assistance.

The Harris Community Centre will be holding their annual Christmas event, and have asked for our support in running their BBQ and Gelato store. These are always a fantastic way to cap off the year, with youngsters running underfoot, grown-ups catching up and even an appearance from Santa.

Final Thoughts

Taylor’s Swift recently re-entered the concert scene, with demand quickly overwhelming the ticket vendor’s website. In order to fully meet demand, Swift would have to perform 900 shows. This would entail a concert a night for 2.5 years straight!

Well, that’s it from me. Don’t forget that our next meeting is on Wednesday the 23rd of November at 6PM, taking place online. For more information, please visit

Until next week,
