LET­TER FROM THE ED­I­TOR’S DESK

Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine - - In This Issue -

Nearly a month down into the New Year and a lot of us are just get­ting back into the swing of things.

This was my first Christ­mas with the mag­a­zine and as such there were a lot of get to­geth­ers in the lead up to the new year. Our Hills to Hawkes­bury Liv­ing team have only be­ing at it for a while and so it was amaz­ing to see the num­ber of re­la­tion­ships and con­nec­tions we had made through­out the com­mu­nity in such a short time.

Thanks to the Ro­tary Club of Dural, I was spon­sored to at­tend the Ro­tary Youth Lead­er­ship Awards (RYLA) 2017. This was a week­long course held in Elanora Heights at the start of Jan­uary. Af­ter a quick hol­i­day down the south coast and our 6th Jan­uary is­sue, headed of to what now 90 other young peo­ple af­fec­tion­ately call RYLA.

The week com­bined lis­ten­ing to many of Aus­tralia’s finest speak­ers with en­gag­ing and chal­leng­ing ac­tiv­i­ties, de­signed to en­able young lead­ers to grow to their full po­ten­tial. Thank you to the Ro­tary Club of Dural for spon­sor­ing me and to Ro­tary District 9685 for hold­ing the event. Would en­cour­age all Ro­tary clubs to look at spon­sor­ing some­one in their com­mu­nity.

Again, as al­ways, please sup­port our lo­cal shops and busi­nesses. If you need a trade or ser­vice take a look in the back. If you would like to ad­ver­tise or con­trib­ute, please con­tact Melinda on 0499 040 726 or email ad­ver­[email protected]­sto­hawkes­bury.com.au. I can also be con­tacted on 1300 616 614. Happy read­ing! Chris
