We are back at Launceston Aquatic this week! We are meeting in the cafe for a Casual / Fellowship meeting. Kathy is the Chair and Danny is the Sergeant. See you there bright and early!
The club program for May and June is now on the website:
We have a great program lined up with some excellent speakers and events including Agfest, Bunnings BBQ, Cocktail Party and the Million Paws Walk.
The Drysdale Student Bar is open on Thursday nights to the public. Though this might not feel the same as Friday knock off drinks, I think it will be nice to catch up for a cocktail (or mocktail) and get the weekend started early. Only kidding! Ok, I'm thinking the 17th of May, which is 2 weeks away, so anyone who is around and keen to come along, let's make use of the new facilities, (it looks pretty good) and think of the most complicated cocktail to test the trainee bar people! Also, as mentioned previously, The Million Paws Walk is on the 20th of May. That gives us 2 days to recover from Thursday night ;) The walk will take place at the Old Bike Track at Inveresk near Aurora Stadium at 11am, or arrive early for Doggie Fashions on the Field! (10am) You will need to register and cost is $8 or $12 on the day. Money raised goes to the RSPCA - Alex
This Wednesday is Anzac Day so there is no club meeting.
The next meeting is a fellowship meeting in Cube on the 2 May. Kathy is the Chair and Danny is the Sergeant.
The new program will be posted soon so keep checking the page on our website:http://www.tamarsunrise.com.au/current-program.html
Each year the Rotary Club of Tamar Sunrise provide volunteers to man the gates at the Agfest Field Days, Tasmania's premier event, organised and run by members of the Rural Youth Organisation of Tasmania Inc. Rural Youth is a not for profit community based organisation who enlists assistance from many community groups, giving them the opportunity to raise funds for their own projects. Agfest is held on the first Thursday, Friday and Saturday in May each year and we provide volunteers on the Saturday. If you have some time available please get in touch with Toni at email@example.com. Friends and colleagues are welcome to join us on the day to help out.
Plans are well underway for the fabulous Cocktail Fundraising Party on Friday 9 June 2012.
More details will be available soon.
