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

Hopefully you enjoyed the extra hour to sleep in on Sunday?

April has a packed agenda for the club after Easter. We have two fantastic CEO guest speakers from two organisations that support youth around Australia. It would be a great opportunity on April 12 in our Face to Face meeting to bring a friend to our Darlings Rotary meeting. We will be sharing a bit about Rotary, our active projects and have Clare Pearson the CEO of Little Wings attending as our Guest Speaker. So please reach out to a friend to introduce them to Rotary and bring them to our April in person meeting.

 On the 19th of April we will have Club General Assembly meeting to discuss the future of our club with an opportunity to contribute to the future direction of our club.

Final Thoughts

The first serious case for DST came from a peculiar place. While working at a post office by day, an entomologist who did most of his insect hunting at night soon became frustrated by how early the sun set during the summer months. He reasoned springing the clocks forward would allow more daylight for bug collecting—along with other evening activities. The clocks could be switched back in the winter when people (and bugs) were less likely to be found outdoors.

When the idea was proposed to a scientific society in New Zealand in 1895, it was panned for being pointless and overly complicated. Just two decades later, daylight saving time would begin its spread across the industrialized world.

Join us at our next meeting on April 12th at 6PM. For more information
