Did anybody watch the Paralympics on TV these past weeks ? It was inspiring to see how people with  disabilities strived to perform and overcome that disability just to compete and be among others with similar disability. It was good to hear that  Medalists will now be given a financial benefit. Maybe it might help cover their ongoing expenses. 
But the focus of this story is Daniel Michel,  Boccia champion . You probably have read his story, if not you will find it at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_Michel

Congratulations Daniel , a job well done. Lets hope you continue with your selected sport and pursue your dreams . 
                 
                                                                  
Over the past 18 Months Engadine Rotary has intermittently conducted our meetings and business via Zoom.
So, it followed with the current virus restrictions that our 2021-2022 President Joy Pogson was inducted via Zoom.
Normally the induction of the new president is a formal event however the Members of Engadine Rotary, warmly welcomed Joy and endorsed her election. 
 
 
 
 Recently,  Engadine Rotary club members established some raised garden plots for the SYLVANVALE group home at Barden Ridge.
 
For many years, the Rotary Club of Engadine has provided much needed support to Sylvanvale  and this project continues that association. 
 
The raised garden plots  have enabled the group home residents to grown their own vegetables and provide a theraputic outlet for them. 
 
The following  photos shows some of the stages of the project        
 
The Rotary Club of Engadine has supported THE ROTARY WORLDWIDE SHELTER BOX PROGRAM almost since its  inception. It has done this by donating funds when permitted, to provide shelter Boxes for  many of the world’s disasters. For more information about shelter boxes, the Shelter Box organisations and Engadine Rotary's early involvement visit the  following websites  https://engadinerotary.org.au/sitepage/shelter-boxes  and https://www.shelterboxaustralia.org.au/  
 
Our involvement forms part of Rotary's dedication to causes that build international relationships, improve lives, and create a better world to support our peace efforts.
 
ShelterBox became Rotary’s Project Partner in Disaster Relief in 2012. Since then, the partnership has helped transform ShelterBox into an internationally recognized disaster relief charity, supporting families with emergency shelter after disaster.
 
Over the past years, the number of world disasters has increased and with it the need to provide more emergency shelters and sustenance for impacted and dislocated families and young children. This is one of Rotary's little known humanitarian projects to which Engadine Rotary is a an ardent supporter and a justly proud one .

0ur Club's Territory

About Our Club's Territory  

Being surrounded by national parks, Engadine has within its territory , some of the most spectacular coast line and bush land in this state . As you enter the district from either the north, south or west , you soon become aware of  the surrounding National Parks and the rugged nature of the countryside . The Royal National Park is  Australia's First dedicated national park and the world's second. In the Heathcote National park, the ridges and drier slopes are covered in forest dominated by angophoras and eucalypts such as bloodwood, greygum, Sydney peppermint, and scribbly gum. Following the upper reaches of the Woronora River leads to the Woronora Dam and reservoir which form part of Sydney's water supply  

Photos of some of the local Scenes appear in the above Carousel. They are Lady Carrington Drive National Park , Woronora Dam and Reservoir , Stanwell  Park from Bald Hill , on the Woronora River are   Kingfisher Pool, Engadine Lagoon and The Needles , and finally Historic Helensburgh with original Railway tunnel (1884) and Station (1889) reference Helensburgh Historical Society  

New RI President New Theme 2021-2022
 Each year Rotary International (RI) elects a new President and  he or she introduces  a new Theme that the President wants to promote. It is always introduced at the Rotary International Assembly of incoming district Governors.  The RI President for 2020-2021 is Shekhar Mehta who is a member of the Rotary Club of Calcutta-Mahanagar, West Bengal, India. In his address to the RI Assembly in May this year he  announced that the Rotary Theme would be  "Serve to Change Lives" and urged Rotarians world wide to seek out and undertake projects that would the change lives of the not so fortunate. He introduced the 2021-22 Rotary Logo 
He let it be known that "Rotary kindled the spark within me to look beyond myself and embrace humanity." 
Today there many people within populations that need sustenance , shelter and  an opportunity to live a decent life but need someone to help them change for the better .   
So If you want to Serve to Change Lives  why not consider Engadine Rotary and join a Club with members dedicated to to this cause. Contact our Club Secretary  at https://engadinerotary.org.au/singleemail/contactus
