The year is racing on and we are now into the 2nd month of trialling the changes to our meeting schedule.  The extra time has given us all the chance to catch up on our other projects.  Derek White, Richard Krohn and Chris Webb have been working on the Berrima Market Place proposal.  Barry Barry Barford is continuing his hard work with MAfO, John Macpherson with RAWCS and RAM, John Smythe and Richard Krohn with Dream Cricket, Bridget Cosyn is easing into her role as Youth Director, and Allen Cupitt is heading the committee for the 2018 District Conference.  Frank Rodriguez has been working on the completion of Yesterday’s Stories and I have been gathering my team and putting together the programme for RYLA 2018.  There are only 7 meetings left in the year and we are busy completing our schedule of activities and speakers.  October is a busy month and we are looking for volunteers for the following activities;
Bowling Challenge
The annual Southern Highlands Rotary Bowling Challenge is coming up in Friday the 13th October at Highlands Tenpin, Mittagong.  Last year the Rotary Club of Berrima District fielded two teams.  We held our ground last year but were not strong enough to defeat the Rotary Club of Moss Vale.   Please contact President Lyndall McGrath ASAP to become part of the team.  This is how much fun we had last year ... 
Lift the Lid on Mental Illness
Australian Rotary Health and Bunnings have joined together to assist in fundraising for and the promotion of awareness of mental health issues.  We will be sharing a Lift The Lid Awareness table with the Rotary Club of Moss Vale on Saturday and Sunday the 7th and 8th October 2017 at Bunnings, Corner Old Hume Highway & Tyree Place, Mittagong.  Our shifts are from 12 to 3pm on the Saturday and from 9am to 12 on the Sunday.  Please contact Lyndall McGrath if you are available to help out during either of these periods.  You don’t need to be there for the whole three hours … but if you can that would be great.  For more information on Lift The Lid please visit the following site:
Dream Cricket
Friday 27th October 2017 is the annual Dream Cricket day at Bradman Oval.  Richard Krohn and John Smythe are on the Board and are requesting volunteers to help out on the day.  There are a variety of different jobs and shift one can do.  It is a wonderful experience and the more people we can get to help the smoother the day runs.  For more information please contact Richard Krohn on 0450695009 or
