Welcome back everyone! I hope you had a most enjoyable and refreshing Christmas and New Year break and now look forward to the coming year with keen anticipation. 2018 will be a very big year for us at North Sydney Sunrise!


For the first time in many years, we start the calendar year with more than 20 members, many hands to share the Club’s growing engagement with our communities, both near and far. We also look forward to our new role as host of a World Festival of Magic event later in the year. This will dramatically increase of fund-raising capability and enable us to provide significant support to several worthwhile groups. Meanwhile, our highly successful series of ‘Leaders Breakfasts’ will continue, as will the inevitable Bunnings BBQs!


This Tuesday after our meeting, Jaz will set off on an ‘Around Australia in 80 days’ adventure, tied in to her role as an ambassador for the Clean Up the World – Australia day set for 15th September. We shall hear more about this on Tuesday and look forward to receiving reports from the road over the next few months.


I am very keen that all our members feel that they can and do make a contribution to our Club. If anyone would like to propose a new project for us to undertake, please don’t hesitate to let me know.


Best wishes to you all for a happy, healthy and successful 2018!
