Rotary club celebrates 46 years
The Rotary Club of Umina Beach has celebrated its 46th birthday.
The club was chartered on February 6, 1976, by the Rotary Club of Woy Woy.
"It has thrived ever since, providing service locally as well as internationally," said club publicity officer Mr Pat Lewis.
"International projects have been carried out in Bali, South Africa, the Phillipines twice, and Papua New Guinea twice involving eye health, clothing for babies, school hall building, electricity and water infrastructure, and school learning resources.
"Locally the club has a strong emphasis on supporting our young people through sponsoring them to international youth exchange, Rotary leadership courses and academic programs, and provision of learning resources to their schools.
"The club is also a very strong supporter of the outstanding Agriculture and Cattle Showing programs at Brisbane Water Secondary College which both develop sound leadership, independence and resilience in participating students.
"In the wider community, the club is active in supporting our local age care and community care facilities, recognises outstanding individuals in community and their vocational services.
"In recent years, the club has travelled to hard-hit country regions to spend money and support businesses."
Mr Lewis said the club was eager to attract new members.
"If all of this sounds like something you would like to be involved in, see our website at uminabeachrotary.com."
