Our club has been involved with the Nusa Tenggara Association ( NTA ) for a number of years and last Tuesday Stephanie Heighes, the Operations Manager spoke to us about the history of NTA, what and where they are active today and in particular the Music & Dance Festival held in Maumere, West Timor.  Stephanie lived in Flores, East Indonesia from 2007 to 2017 before moving to Sydney with her Australian husband and their 2 children to take up her position with NTA.  The Music and Dance Festival was held last November for school children from nearby regions and our club provided part of the funds to assist with presenting the event with the balance provided by a Rotary District Grant.

 

We hope to be involved with a proposed future reading festival run by NTA.

 

Sunday, 26 May is the Salvation Army’s Red Shield Day and North Sydney Rotary Club has asked if our club can provide volunteers to assist on the day. Should any members be willing to join me on the morning of that day I would appreciate hearing from you.
