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

Last week we had an exciting virtual session to get a brainstorm of all different aspects of the club. It was a great session which Mike followed up with key minutes from the meeting.

In two weeks we have an exciting Guest Speaker Gwamaka Mwasakifwa for our in person meeting on the 9th of August. It will be an interesting talk to hear about his latest venture and utilizing a cloud-based digital health platform in countries in Africa and Australia.

To get more involved with volunteering there is a great opportunity to volunteer for the City to Surf event on 13th August to assist with Marshalling. It is a back bone of volunteering work that we show up to and assist in this city celebrated event. For more information, or to get involved, visit

Final Thoughts

Women’s FIFA World Cup facts:

  • By far the most successful team is the US winning on four different occasions (1991, 1999, 2015, 2019). Germany has won twice (2003, 2007), Japan once (2011) and Norway once (1995). Who do you think will win it this year?
  • There have been two nail-biting Women’s World Cup finals that came down to the dreaded penalty kicks to decide the champion. In 1999, the US team outlasted China by scoring all 5 penalties. It didn’t go quite as well for the US in 2011, when Japan shocked everyone with a 3-1 penalties win.

Looking forward to seeing you at our in person meeting on August 9th at 6.00 PM. For more information visit
