Dear Members and Friends of the Rotary Club of Sydney Darling Harbour,

This week we will have complete 5% of the year! I have taken the first few weeks of the year to reflect on last year and build out my goals utilising the Best Year Journal. It has been extremely usefully to go through all the photos from 2022 and reflect on my magical moments and things I am grateful for. I highly recommend it to help start of the year and set up goals for the year ahead.

We had a wonderful dinner only meeting this week and some great fellowship learning more about different members in the the club. Especially hearing about the exciting plans for the year ahead from some of our members. The group had a great discussion on some ideas and looking forward to sharing some of the ideas at the Board meeting this week.

We have another amazing opportunity for fellowship and celebration of the Lunar New Year across Rotary clubs in our district. Please see details below and if you would like to attend please RSVP.

As we look at the week ahead I ask you for one favour: Share with a friend or a family member about what Rotary does and what it means to you?

Final Thoughts

Popcorn is a special kind of corn. Of all the types of corn, popcorn is the only variety that pops. Inside each kernel of popcorn is a tiny droplet of water surrounded by a hard shell called a hull. As the popcorn is heated, the water turns into steam, which builds pressure inside the kernel.

What is your tiny droplet of water? What is your source of heat to bring out some so wonderful as Popcorn? Join us at our next event to celebrate the Lunar New Year on January 22nd at 6PM. To RSVP, please visit

Hopefully see you at the board meeting or the Lunar New Year Celebration,
