Another successful Carols was held on Saturday 8th December. Well done and thanks to all those that attended and provided support on the day and throughout the night.
For the first time in 12 years, we were without our usual MC, CJ, who was unfortunately not able to be with us on the night and who sadly passed away on Sunday the 9th.
 
Vince Foti kindly and very ably MC’d on the night. Many talented performers entertained the crowd and Santa found time to drop in. Special thanks to Carlos and Mr D’s traditional meats who very generously assisted us on tn the night and at other functions during the year.
 
As you can appreciate, a lot of planning is involved, and it wouldn’t be the success it was without the efforts of the Committee, well done all!
 
Planning will soon start for Carols 2019, stay tuned!

Sad news that CJ Flynn passed away on 7 December after a battle with illness. He was our master of ceremonies at Rotary Carols at Horsley Park from 2008 to 2017.
 
He said he regretfully had to withdraw from the MC position due to ill health and was hoping to make it as a member of the audience this year, but was unfortunately too unwell for that too. He was very supportive of our club and he will be missed.
 
His funeral was at Castlebrook Cemetery in Rouse Hill on 17 December with Roy attending on behalf of our club. Our sympathies to his family and the Rotary family sent our condolences.
 
Thank you all for your continued support and participation with our Club throughout the year. We have achieved a lot and done many wonderful things in our community. A special thanks to Rick this month for his efforts with the toy donation through Ray White Wetherill Park to families of the victims of homicide.
 
May you have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Stay safe and value the time with family and friends!  See you in the new year and looking forward to achieving more in 2019.
Fayez and Raquel handed over $2500 to assist an aborginal medical student from funding from Australian Rotary Health.
