October will be a busy month for Kiama Rotarians as we run two of our biggest fund-raising activities of the year.
On Saturday, October 7, 2017, we will run our famous barbeque at the annual Blue Haven fete. Come out and join us as we support this worthy local cause.
On Sunday, October 8, 2017, we will host the popular Festival of Choirs in support of local and international humanitarian projects. Kiama Rotary supports many worthy projects such as free local Mental Health First Aid Courses and international Polio Eradication.
Featured Choirs include: Illawarra Youth Vocal Ensemble, Kiama Probus Men’s Choir, Shoalhaven Lydian Singers, Sing Gong Go, Sounds Live Chorus from Bathurst and Southern Lights Vocal Academy.
Doors will open at 1pm and the concert will run from 1:30pm-4:30 pm. Light refreshment will be served.
To ensure a seat, it is recommended that advance tickets be purchased at Kiama Newsagency, 68 Terralong Street, Kiama. A limited number of tickets will also be available for purchase at the door.
Adults $30, Concessions $25, Children 5–17 years $10, Family of four $50.
Having had such a successful day at the Hot Rod Show, we followed it with another good day at the Second-Hand Saturday last month. Over a hundred cars were registered and lots of attics and garages cleared.
Last weekend we started our Driver Reviver work at Dunmore, so we are expecting a lot of traffic as folks take advantage of the dry weather and school holidays.
The Carers Cottage is starting to look a bit more like a proper cottage as the cladding is attached. We must publicly acknowledge the help of another Gerringong Lion Steve Pottie, who has added his years of experience as a carpenter. Now we are thinking about what the final colours will be! We were also informed this week that CSR Ltd will donate all the gyprock required for the interior, which is much appreciated.
The dinner meeting last week was at the Leagues Club and the first one this month will be at the Jamberoo Pub and will be attended by the District Governor.
