Members of Springwood Rotary Club are very proud of their $48,000 contribution towards community health in the Lower Blue Mountains of NSW.
 
Club members and representatives of Blue Mountains City Council recently combined resources to fund and install a ten station exercise area on the southern border of Summerhayes Park, Yellow Rock, on the outskirts of Springwood.
 
The project is the ‘brainchild’ of 2015/16 Club President Pat Ainslie during her year as President Elect and the plan has been slowly developed over the last two years. She received staunch support from Past President Colin Kenney and a small committee of dedicated workers.
 
Springwood Rotary provided the major part of the cost of the state of the art exercise equipment, whilst Blue Mountains Council provided support with site selection and installation.
 
Ten work stations allow for a full range of physical exercise and training – legs, arms, shoulders and back – and large groups of morning and afternoon joggers have already been seen enjoying the facilities. The exercise area will be open for public use 24 hours a day and the equipment is designed to be vandal proof.

An impressive plaque has been struck to acknowledge Springwood Rotary and Council.  It will be safely installed in a secure rock bed to ensure permanent record.
 
 

District Governor Gina Growden and District Governor Elect Bruce Lakin warmly invite you and your partner to the 2016 District Changeover.

We look forward to seeing you and your partner at the District Changeover.

 

 
District Governor Gina took the opportunity at the Presidents' Meeting on Saturday 21 May to recognise the sterling efforts and achievements of many clubs during the 2015-16 year.  All clubs are deserving of recognition for the work being done and the task of selecting 'winners' was indeed difficult.
 
The District Governor's Shield, the District Governor's Trophy for Small Clubs, and The Rotarian Vocational Excellence Award will be presented at the District Changeover on 25 June.

Through a Vocational Training Team grant, Interplast - with the generous support of the Rotary Clubs of Ryde and Apia - recently delivered a successful surgical skills workshop in Apia, Samoa.  The workshop was the first of its kind and the first time that Interplast has partnered with Rotary International for a Vocational Training Team grant.
 
Much more detail on this project is available in this report on the workshop.
 
Without the generous support of the two clubs and Rotary International, the program would not have been possible.  Interplast looks forward to continuing its longstanding relationship with Rotary Clubs in Australia and New Zealand and in partner countries to implement its life changing and lifesaving programs.
