The Darling: 5/12/2022

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

Our end of year BBQs are fast coming up, and we’re still one volunteer shy for the Glebe Public School’s BBQ at the Sydney Children’s Christmas Concert on December 10. If you’re free that afternoon and would like to bring a little Christmas joy to the community, please consider signing up.

Otherwise, our next in-person meeting will be our Annual General Meeting on Wednesday week, and will be the last one for the year. Sarah Thyssen from the EB Research Partnership will be joining us talk to about Epidermolysis Bullosa. This is a serious condition which impacts around a million people globally, so I hope you will join me in learning more about it.

Upcoming Events

Glebe Public School BBQ
December 10, 2022 at 3:30 pm
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.

Uniting Harris Community Centre Nativity Event

Uniting Harris Community Centre

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

Dogs can understand pointing, and will look to where a human is pointed at when prompted. No other animal can do that, including other primates.

Well, that’s it from me. Don’t forget that our next meeting is on Wednesday the 14th of December at 6PM. For more information, please visit

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