The Magill Sunrise Market started in 2008 from the Campbelltown Council Civic Centre car park. In 2011 we moved to the Campbelltown Library to make it easier to find. It remains the only year-round market in the area.
From December 2019 we move to an even better location at the new Campbelltown Memorial Oval launching with a huge Two-day Christmas Market on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th December from 9am-3pm. Make sure you check it out!
We had another full house this week plus some extras in our Friend of Magill Sunrise Bernard Cole and our Honorary Member Jeff Neale. We were all in attendance to hear our guest speaker Carol Hillman from COTA, which stands for Council of the Aging which is described as an older people movement run by, for and with older people. They look at how society views aging and what they can do to improve their member’s lifestyles from this through a number of programs. 1096 Bulletin
We had an interesting meeting on Tuesday where our guest speaker made it to the meeting with minutes to spare before her presentation. Our guest was Andrea Hughes who was a Group Study Exchange (GSE) member from Brazil, back in the turn of the
century. Andreas presentation was on her journey from then where she is today. 1095 Bulletin
We had another full house Tuesday morning, despite the fear of having to don Gary Lockwood’s silks and giddy up on those imaginary horses around the clubroom again. Rather than running around like Village Idiots we did enjoy alternative entertainment with the Melbourne Cup Quiz emceed by Sergeant Simon. 1094 Bulletin
We had a rather good turnout to this week’s meeting considering it was the day after a public holiday so well done to all who attended though I am sure David Lloyd our speaker will tell you that they all turned up to hear him speak. David was there to give a presentation on “All Things Funerals” or as I kept saying “All things DEATH”, as I had Monty Python’s bring out your dead’ ‘in my head… So many quotes so little space. 1092 Bulletin
Lots of President notices this week, of great importance. After several failed markets we decided to hold our first market at the Campbelltown Memorial Oval with a huge 2 day Christmas extravaganza on 7th & 8th of December (pending approvals). 1091 Bulletin
It was a bumper turnout this morning. First up was our NYSF student Aoibh (pronounced Eve) who spoke to us quickly of her road to the NYSF camp in Canberra in January. Next up were our guest speakers Dr Francis Nathan (Ophthalmologist) and spouse Merlin Nathan (Occupational Therapist). They are members of the Australian Friends of Palestine and volunteer their time a couple of times a year in the Gaza Strip and West Bank in Palestine and have been doing so for 17 years. 1090 Bulletin
This week we had a low-key meeting where we held a Club Assembly to discuss the Reel Event for 2020. Kirsty Stark has been the driver behind short film selection and IT, but work pressures means she can no longer remain in the Club and give her full attention to the task. So, the rest of us decided that there will be a 9th event held next year and we’d make it happen! We were also pleased to welcome local resident Bernard who dropped in to see us for breakfast. 1089 Bulletin
This week we welcomed District Governor Tim Klar along with his wife Bronwyn. Tim gave us an excellent chat about where he sees Rotary going, particularly with the new district 9510 coming next year. Bronwyn also gave us a great update on ShelterBox, which is a superb Rotary program providing shelter and other necessities after disaster strikes. 1088 Bulletin
A few months ago we decided that this year we would be supporting homeless youth via the works of SYC. So, we thought we’d better get to know them and Anna Dodd from SYC gladly filled us in on their very important works. 1087 Bulletin
