Put it in your calendar: Sunday,
Stall registration will open Feb 4th 2020.
100 stalls in the one location at Dru Point. What amazing items will you find here? Will you get those boat bargains, food delights and clothes bargains that sell so quickly or will you be seeking out the crafts wizards, antique oddities, shed bits, bikes, fishing/sports gear, clothes, garden items or re-loved gear? Thinking of joining in and sharing space with friends and family? You probably won't make a fortune, but you will have cleared the clutter, made a bit of pocket money and - hopefully - had a good time while doing it. It's certainly an experience! You will find tips here

You are Invited by the Rotary Foundation to help STOP POLIO NOWRotary cannot give up until POLIO is stopped in its tracks.
– A delegation of Rotary International leaders from around the world traveled to Pakistan this week to meet with government leaders including Prime Minister Imran Khan, Minister of Health Dr. Zafar Mirza, Army Chief of Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa and Dr. Rana Safdar, head of Pakistan’s Polio National Emergency Operations Centre.
Rotary is dedicated to six areas of focus to build international relationships, improve lives, and create a better world to support our peace efforts and end polio forever.
Rotary Clubs across Australia are working hard to provide relief and assistance during these horrific bushfires.
It's easy to feel that there's not much we, as individuals, can do to help.
But every dollar that can be put toward helping others can help in significant ways.
Rotary Australia World Community Service (RAWCS) Bushfire appeals is taking donations and the funds raised will go directly where they're needed most.
You can donate here https://donations.rawcs.com.au/68-2019-20
Donations to RAWCS are Tax Deductible and funds will be utilised in the Community by Rotary Clubs where needed.
Chair: PP Jenny Simms Ulverstone West

A Rotary Tasmania Callout
A Rotary Australia Benevolent Society (Managed by the Rotary Australia World Community Service) has Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) registration and has been listed as a Charitable Fund so we can accept tax deductible donations from individuals or organisations.
RAWCS has established an appeal which commenced accepting donations from 1 October 2018 on the RAWCS website home page. These funds will go directly to the eight Rotary District drought relief project registered with RAWCS. These projects cover the whole of the drought declared area west of the Great Dividing Range, from Far North Queensland to Victoria. Two of the Rotary District drought projects have been operating since 2014 in Central Queensland and Southern Queensland. The six new drought projects have been modeled on the success of these two projects. The emphasis is on mental health, particularly the factors associated with the high suicide rate in drought impacted areas. “Wellbeing rather than Welfare” is the driver in these eight Rotary projects, by direct contact and financial support, and involvement together through a range of community activities of those affected.
Tasmania Rotary Clubs are asked to consider donating to the new RAWCS appeal, or direct to one of the eight RAWCS drought projects. Full details are available on RAWCS homepage.
