A busy end to a fruit­ful year for our club

Chinchilla News - - LIFE OUR COLUMNISTS -

HELLO ev­ery­one, wel­come to an­other col­umn by the Rotary Club of Chin­chilla. Can you be­lieve it is De­cem­ber al­ready?

There was no din­ner meet­ing held last week but our mem­bers were busy work­ing in the com­mu­nity.

Firstly, we did a bar­be­cue for the Christ­mas Sale at the ADRA Op Shop in Rail­way St.

Then last Tues­day we staffed the bar for the “Stan­broke” Christ­mas Party.

Our mem­bers also as­sisted with cater­ing at the break­fast event for the Melon­fest com­mit­tee with the BIG un­veil­ing of the BIG Wa­ter­melon.

This was a very busy morn­ing with quite a few turn­ing up to be a part of the an­nounce­ment.

It is great to see Chin­chilla has been recog­nised in this way.

This week we will be hold­ing our Ru­ral Ur­ban Night, which will also be a part­ners’ night and where we will be award­ing the win­ners of our bar­ley com­pe­ti­tion.

I will give you the names of our win­ners and de­tails in our next col­umn.

There has been a slight change to our end-of-year cal­en­dar, with our Christ­mas party now be­ing held on De­cem­ber 11 in­stead of ear­lier in De­cem­ber.

Then on De­cem­ber 13 we will be out in force to cater at the CCCI Street Christ­mas Party.

The street party is usu­ally a very busy night and Ro­tar­i­ans will be out in force to sup­ply our great burg­ers to all the late-night shop­pers.

We look for­ward to see­ing you there.

Our club will go into re­cess af­ter the street party and will hold a cou­ple of in­for­mal get-to­geth­ers in Jan­uary be­fore com­menc­ing the new year in late Jan­uary.

This col­umn will also go into re­cess for that pe­riod but I will be here next week, all go­ing well.

Well, it is time for me to say good­bye for the week.

Hope to catch up again next week.

Please stay safe and re­mem­ber: “You are not too old and it is not too late.”
