Our Projects
It was a great day to be with my fellow Rotarians and clean up the Ponds Walk trail at Eric Mobbs Memorial Park on Marsden Road in Carlingford.
 
Together with Mike Morgan, Bass Bhaskaran, Philip and Cristy Newall, and our President Sudhir Mooray we collected rubbish through the park. We retrieved a large tyre, two chairs, front bumper of a car, a large television, and several bags full of rubbish.
 
It felt good to give back and help our community in a relatively small way.
 
 
     
      
 
Have you stopped to enjoy the music of Peter Allison when visiting North Rocks Market ? 
 
Peter often plays at the Market on a Sunday morning, and all the money he collects is donated to the Can Too Foundation. 
 
The Rotary Districts of Australia have launched a national flood appeal to provide financial assistance to flood victims in QLD and NSW.  Personal donations are tax deductible.
 
Be generous in your donation and know that the funds will be delivered to people in need via their local Rotary clubs who can assess the need in their local area.
 
 
 
Imagine sleeping rough in all the rain we are having at the moment !  Parramatta Mission does an amazing job of trying to support homeless people in the local community.
 
Rotary Carlingford Community Service Director Cristy Newall saw these terrific Shelterbags advertised and quickly ordered five to give to Parramatta Mission, who can donate them to people who are doing it tough, living on the streets.
 
Shelterbags are a light, durable, warm, waterproof, comfortable protective sleeping tent.  To find out more about Shelterbags, listen to the Podcast of "Rotary Matters".
 
A huge thankyou to everyone who participated in the Australia Day at John Wearn Reserve event this year.  We had such a wonderful day, with Uncle Barry Seach, Bidgigal Elder providing a splendid Welcome to Country, followed by Lord Mayor Donna David from the City of Parramatta making an Australia Day speech, supported by the councillors from the North Rocks Ward.  The North Rocks Scouts then did a splendid job of raising the 3 new flags on the flagpoles newly installed at John Wearn Reserve.    Then in the afternoon....
Sincere congratulations to our Australia Day Say Thanks to a Mate award winners.  Thanks to the National Australia Day Council, and the Rotary Clubs of Carlingford, Beecroft & North Rocks, 18 awards (total value $540) were made to Essential Workers in our local area, who have worked hard to keep our community operating during difficult times.
 
For Australia Day 2022, the Rotary Clubs of Beecroft, Carlingford and North Rocks are proud to launch the Australia Day Say "Thank You Mate" campaign !
 
Thanks to the National Australia Day Council, we have 100 Uber Eats Vouchers to the value of AUD30 each to give to Essential Workers who have kept our community running during the difficult COVID Pandemic.
 
The COVID Pandemic is another chapter in the Story of Australia - the story of an extraordinary nation.
 
The Story begins 60,000 years ago.  New chapters are written every day.
 
On Australia Day, we reflect on our history, its highs and its lows.
 
We respect the stories of others
 
And we celebrate our nation, its achievements and most of all, its people.
 
We're all part of the story.
 
 
 
 
Come and join us for a community celebration on Australia Day at John Wearn Reserve Amphitheatre, Farnell Ave, Carlingford.
 
Sending all stallholders and customers our best wishes for the Festive Season.  After a challenging year for everyone, we hope that 2022 is a better year for all !
