 History 2000 -

Features of 2000

Our second last charter member moved out of district and resigned recently, leaving us just one.
We had representatives assisting at the Paralympics as well as providing funds to assist local schools children to be there. Assisted with the Torch Relay in Maitland. Continued our participation in RYPEN, RYLA, YEP, and also RELAYID 2000. Community work in Child Literacy Support, “Clean Up Australia”, Meals on Wheels and Rotary Park. Supplied Palliative Care with a special adjustable bed with funds from last year.
Major project – to raise funds to help provide a 40 seat coach for South Street Special School. Coordinated a “mercy flight” to Western Australia for a young child needing urgent neurosurgery. Investigated a new logo for the club with Graphic Design students from NUC.

Features of 2001

Review of financial commitments saw annual dues rise in order to balance the budget. The usual fund raising efforts were planned and “one-off” opportunities were a way of increasing our income. A local youngster was sent to Perth for neurosurgery, which corrected a birth defect, enabling Jack Gray to lead a normal life.
We hosted Eszter Kovacs, a Hungarian lass and in March had a special Hungarian night with the ambassador and many special guests, including Dr and Mrs Granville Pillar who are to spend 5 years teaching in Hungary. The club will provide computer equipment for his university there. We hosted a Polish GSE team, held our usual Anzac Meeting with 30 of our returned diggers present. We made 2 vocational visits and participated in “Clean up Australia Day”.

Features of 2003

One sad feature of the year was the handing-in of its charter by Tenambit/Morpeth club. A side-effect of this was the decision by 4 members of that club to join us in the new Rotary year. Unfortunately, 3 members have indicated their intention to resign for personal reasons then, leaving numbers unchanged.
Fund raising followed out traditional pattern, but other community service work included Clean Up Australia, planting of the Lone Pine Tree, and the handing over of the bus for South Street School – a major club project over 3 years. We cooked at Hunter Prelude, participated in the Metford reading programme and delivered Meals on Wheels. We also took part in the YEP, RYLA and NYSF programmes.
