The 27th Annual Golf Day was a success with 62 players, which was more than last year and almost $4,000 raised for Autism Spectrum Wetherill Park. The weather was kind, giving us a cool start and near perfect playing conditions on a course that thankfully had almost fully recovered from an extremely dry summer.

The wonderful ladies and gents from Autism Spectrum Wetherill Park toiled throughout the day, doing the bulk of the food preparation, BBQing and serving.

Other non-playing volunteers also deserve a mention... we're sure all of them could have found a different way to enjoy their day!

Alan, Darren, Peter, Rick, Silvana and Stewart all worked hard either setting up from 7am, manning the ship during play, or packing up at 5pm a long day.

Congratulations to the winners (pictured at the beginning of this bulletin) Wayne Levi, Luke Crawford, Peter Hughes and Paul Levi and runners up (pictured above) Trevor Bragg, Gus Guthrie, Steve Mock and Steve Johnson.

We are indebted to our sponsors, who provided cash, goods for prizes, food and drink and players. Without them the day, fun and importantly, funds raised simple doesn't happen. Many thanks to:

We were blessed to have two impressive speakers presenting on work they are currently involved with that are having fantastic outcomes.
 
John Soliman, president and founder of Reaching, talked about how his not for profit organisation helps people in need with food and material aid. They help predominately through the delivery of free groceries and materials to the homeless. People who donate can choose a type of recipient they'd like to help by purchasing a targeted grocery pack for a pensioner, single parent or a family. For more information go to the Reaching website.
 
Ashley Robinson (pictured above), Student Woman of the Year 2019 and a Humanitarian Affairs Peace Ambassador 2019, talked about her studies and work in looking into systemic responses  of the legal system for areas of conflict such as wars and emergencies. At 23, Ashley is studying a Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Criminal and Community Justice.
 
In May's meeting, John Pillay from the Rotary Club of Liverpool West, spoke about the Club's water bore and toilet block projects in Fiji and the challenges faced in successfully completing and maintaining that infrastructure. He also spoke about the fruitful relationship they have formed with the local Fijian Rotary Club to make these projects such a success.
Some of you may recall the Centurion Plan, which is a way to make personal; contribution of $A100 a year to The Rotary Foundation.
It is tax deductible and has the advantage of 50% of it returning to our District to use as support funds for the grants programs.
Further information, including the contribution form can be found here.
