Rotary Belconnen News & Stories
You will have all seen the news in our Bulletin that our Melbourne Cup Day celebrations have been cancelled.
It would be a shame not to be able to pull our finest clothing and head pieces out of the closest this year.
So the meeting on the 3 November will not only have a speaker, but a competition for 'the best headwear appropriate to be worn at the races'.
Best dressed man and Best dressed woman will win a bottle of wine or chocolates.
We are fortunate to have Rosemary Castle, D9705 Ambassador for Operation Cleft presenting at this week's meeting.
OVER 14,500 SMILES GIFTED. Operation Cleft has changed the lives of many underprivileged children in Bangladesh since its inception in 2005. By providing these children with the opportunity to receive life-altering, free cleft lip and cleft palate repair surgery they need for a brighter future and the Gift of a Smile for Life.
District 9705 is arranging several breakfasts to celebrate International Womens' Day - 8 March 2022.
The local team is looking for someone to join the subcommittee from each club to assist in arranging the event to be held here in Canberra.  You do not need to be female to be part of the planning team.
If you are interested please contact Sandra Turner at E: sandraturner@ozemail.com.au or M: 0414 695 632
The 161st running of the Melbourne Cup is to take place on Tuesday 2nd of November.  
Unfortunately, due to the uncertainty of the COVID restrictions that may be in place for the ACT,
we have decided to cancel our usual gathering at Len & Linda’s place for this year’s Cup Day Luncheon.
