Last Tuesday morning, our speaker Tony McGuire gave us an insight of the impact alcohol and drugs have on the nation’s health and wellbeing.  The Alcohol and Drug Foundation, of which he is Community Development Officer, has put in place a Good Sports program which in over 7,000 sporting clubs across Australia has improved their management of smoking, alcohol and drug use to create family – friendly, thriving clubs.

 

On Friday, 28 September our club was involved in the Ride to End Polio fundraising event organised by Mark Anderson of the Rotary Foundation. The challenge is to visit all 187 railway stations in Sydney in ONE day.  Several our club members were at Milsons Point station assisting with the collection of donations and to greet the travellers on their passing through the station at 7.42am.  I’ll report further on this event in next week’s bulletin.

 

There will be no breakfast meeting on Tuesday, 2 October as we will be having a social dinner at the Kirribilli Club that evening.
