At our meeting held on the 28/08/2017 at the Golden Grove Tavern, we were able to recognise and award three special youth representatives from our community.

Simon Awramenko is our sponsored outgoing student on the Rotary Exchange Program for 2018. He is going to Finland for the next 12 month, and will be a very good ambassador for our club and our community in general.

Amber Blakeley was our winner of the Good News Award for July 2017. Amber collected 145 warm jackets for homeless people to cope with the bitterly cold weather this winter. A great initiative – thank you Amber.

Basbibi Zaheer was our Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) representative. She is from Afghanistan and wants to work with displaced persons, and is currently working as a volunteer at the Australian Migrant Resource Centre.

Assistant Governor (Group 6), Peter Perkins and Club President Ron Kelley presented the three recipients to the meeting.

We again sponsored a student for the ‘Rotary Youth Leadership Award’ this year, the program is designed to give the opportunity to explore leadership skills for young 18-25 year olds.

Our student was Basbibi Zaheer and she and 24 other awardees attended a six day course to refine their skills, explore pertinent topics with their peers and elders and share valuable expertise.

At the Anstey Hill Recreational Park, club members assisted with planting nurtured seedlings in a selected area of the park. Almost 500 plants have been planted over two planting days a few weeks apart.
