Local Rotarians are actively finalising preparations for the 2017 Kiama Car and Bike Spectacular to be held at Kiama Showground from 9am to 2:30pm on Sunday, November 12.
This family fun day is a joint project of Kiama and Gerringong Rotary Clubs and funds raised directly support an Australian Rotary Health PhD Scholarship conducting melanoma research.
All makes, models and ages of vehicles together with automotive related stalls and displays are welcomed. For bookings please contact either Christine at 4234 3033 or Bob at 4234 1336 – or email KiamaCarSpectacular@gmail.com.
This fun event will include a wide variety of family entertainment including: vintage, veteran and classic cars & bikes, car and bike judging competitions, demonstration of a driverless car, car trailer raffle, drone exhibition & demonstrations, Royal Australian Navy helicopter, off-road remote car competitions, stalls with auto supplies & accessories and more. Entry is a $5 donation per person (under 12 years free).
Another exciting day at the markets on last weekend. This had been preceded by a very successful dinner meeting at the Jamberoo Pub for the visiting District Governor's annual visitation on the previous Thursday. He and his wife were very impressed with our club and what we are achieving. He was especially impressed with the Carer's cottage project.
Work on that project continues steadily although there is not much to see from the outside. Because there will be structural alterations on the inside it has been necessary to fit large laminate beams to strengthen the supports for the new layout.
Our Commemorative Pavers collection from the 1991 Seaside Festival is providing quite a lot of interest, as we seek to locate some of the people who would have been in Primary School at the time and put their names on these tiles at the Community Centre in Hindmarsh Park.
So, for example, if your name is Ben Raftery, Luke Carson, Eliza Faier, Alison Donagh or Sean Fitzpatrick and you are now in your 30's please give Tony a call on 0417 139 949. We will give out some more names next week.
