People of Earth,
Certain Clubs see the weather in Sydney as it is and ask "Why?". Certain clubs see the much colder weather in the Blue Mountains and ask "Why not?". As you're looking for clues to work out which one of the two categories Sydney City Rotaract fits into, I'd like to take this opportunity to point out that we have two spots remaining for the Winter Weekend Away!
If you've got nothing planned for the weekend, or if you have plans but aren't that enthused about them, I'd encourage you to attend. Book your tickets here, unless you hate fun.
Winter Weekend Away - Blue Mountains Christmas in July - 24/7/2015
We have rented a cottage for about 12 people and hope you want to be one of them. Bring your board games and cheer!
Community Committee Meeting - 30/07/2015
If you're interested in participating in the Community Service portfolio this year, it would be great to see you there.
SCR's Changeover Celebration! - 31/07/2015
We are hosting a Cocktail Function rather than a sit-down meal to encourage interaction between Rotaractors, Rotarians and special guests.
We'd like to see as many family members, external guests and representatives as the building can possibly fit! Buy your tickets at http://www.sydneycityrotaract.org.au/events/2015/2015-07/scrs-changeover...
First Friday @ Five - 07/08/2015
No formalities, no agenda. Just getting to know each other and providing an environment from where new friendships and ideas may develop. Just drop in and have a chat or stay for a meal.
If you'd like to attend, register at http://www.sydneycityrotaract.org.au/events/2015/2015-08/first-friday-five
City 2 Surf Volunteering - 08/08/2015
Its that wonderful day of year where the city comes together to work off last years cake consumption, and feel less guilty about doubling that cake consumption for the next. That’s right, the City to Surf is on again!
Our friends in Rotary have asked us for a few intrepid volunteers to help marshal the event (manning water stations, keeping runners on track, etc)
For more information, and to get involved, please visit http://www.sydneycityrotaract.org.au/events/2015/2015-08/city-2-surf-vol...
Winston Churchill found so much enjoyment and relaxation in laying bricks he even joined and paid dues in the Bricklayer's Union. He even inquired in a letter "is there is a rule regulating the number of bricks which a man may lay a day?…and what are the restrictions on overtime?"
Well, that's it from me. Don't forget that our next meeting is on tomorrow, the 22nd of July, at the Tresscox Lawyers Offices, starting at 6.30PM. For more information, including a map and a full agenda, please visit http://www.sydneycityrotaract.org.au/events/next-meeting
Until Next time,
Editor in Chief,
