Sydney City Signal - 3rd August 2016

Sydney City Signal

It has been a busy time for our Rotaractors. We proudly supported the Rotary NSW Emergency Services Community Awards, congratulations to all involved. Our board members started planning for an exciting year at their first meeting over a sneaky Max Brenner treat. We were inspired to go shopping at The Social Outfit in Newtown thanks to a powerful presentation by CEO Jackie Ruddock at Rotary Darling Harbour’s meeting. Our early risers learnt about the Gamarada Indigenous Healing & Life Training program in Redfern at the Rotary Club of Sydney Cove meeting. Plus a big welcome to our newest member, Graciela Monserrat Jimenez Lopez, who was inducted at our last club meeting.

Meet A Member My name is… Maryanne Green
I joined Rotaract in... 2011
My role is… Vice President
Something about me that might surprise you is my mother’s family stems from the last line of Tasmanian Aboriginals.
I am originally from…Tasmania.
On a weekend you’ll find me, sleeping in, having late lunches and exploring Sydney!
I joined Rotaract because my Dad was given a Rotaract flyer by someone he was doing an odd job for, I went to one meeting and was instantly inspired by young people helping their community.
My favorite saying is you lose 100% of the chances you don't take.
Outside of Rotaract I am a management trainee at a freight forwarding company, a girl guide leader.
At karaoke I would sing perfect by fairground attraction, or TLC no scrubs if Kim is there!
My pet peeve is people who eat with their mouth open.
The last book I read was, how to get stuff done by David Allen.
I am inspired by people that prosper against all odds and people that give their time to others.

P.S. Did you know Rotary NSW Emergency Services Community Awards is the only time all six NSW Emergency Service Agencies are recognised in a combined awards program? All funds raised went to supporting an Australian Rotary Health, PhD Research Scholarship investigating Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in Emergency Services personnel.
