Presidents Message 06 August, 2021
SERVE TO CHANGE LIVES is the Theme for 2021/22.
What heartbreak!   A snap lockdown was announced on Saturday and we had to shut down the Botanical Bazaar. The friendliness and the happy vibe from everyone at the event was truly wonderful. After the devastating news was delivered there was an air of disbelief but everyone got to the task of packing up.
I went home with such a heavy heart and feeling so sad for the huge number of hours that went into the planning and organisational of this event by the committee.

For the time and effort by many volunteers to decorate and theme the site. So this edition is to celebrate the commitment, blood, sweat and laughter that went into our Botanical Bazaar 2021. Like the phoenix we shall return and reconvene one of the GC's most loved events and what we think will become one of our club's signature events.  Just a heads up: t
he committee is regrouping and are in talks about when it can be held again.
Looking forward to seeing you all in person soon.

Riddle Me This! 
Read these riddles very carefully because you have the chance to win a mystery prize at our next meeting. And no, it's not toilet paper laugh
  • Walk on the living, they don’t even mumble. Walk on the dead, they mutter and grumble. What are they?
  • What question can you never answer yes to?
  •  I have four keys, but no locks. I have a space, but no room. You can enter, but can’t go inside. What am I?

Get those brains ticking over and good luck! 

Are you an established professional who wants to make positive changes in your community and the world?

Our club members are dedicated people who share a passion for community service and friendship. Becoming a Rotarian connects you with a diverse group who share your drive to give back.

Our 1.2 million-member organization started with the vision of one man—Paul P. Harris. The Chicago attorney formed one of the world’s first service organizations, the Rotary Club of Chicago, on 23 February 1905 as a place where professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas and form meaningful, lifelong friendships. Rotary’s name came from the group’s early practice of rotating meetings among the offices of each member.
You are invited to visit us at an upcoming meeting.
