We are a small and motivated breakfast club with members drawn from a wide range of vocations. Our goal is to serve our local community with a strong focus on youth. Our two primary activities are the Model United Nations Assembly (MUNA) which is an event for high school students held annually at the Museum of Australian Democracy and DreamCricket, which provides opportunities for disabled primary school children to play cricket. We enjoy the friendship and fellowship associated with Rotary service.

Yesterday President David and last year's Board members Lain, Peter and Rosemary celebrated with Amanda Tobler, CEO of CS#1, Canberra Sunrise's purchase of two mobile freezer eskies for use with their food pantry to extend services to those in need. This is part of a broader relationship that the club has worked to establish with CS#1, which has culminated in a Rotary District Grant to support the food pantry purchases of fresh ingredients.
We are very pleased to be able to support some of the broad set of community activities CS#1 is involved in.

Breakfast Meetings Re-Commenced 2 July 
 
Weekly club breakfast meetings recommenced on Thursday, 2 July.  23 members took advantage of this opportunity for members to get back together again and all enjoyed catching up and hearing from incoming President David Elder.  For anyone concerned about the social distancing arrangements, the Commonwealth Club have made appropriate adjustments
 
And the Winner Is:  DreamCricket
The Club was awarded the Youth Services award for the District at last week's District Changeover event.  We all know the wonderful job that Jonathan and the DreamCricket team do, but it was great to see that recognised at the District level.  The DreamCricket Gala Day is one of the club's 'big 3' events and represents the culmination of DreamCricket activities for the year.  Well done to all involved.

And despite COVID-19, we have continued to strive to support the community,  The club has submitted an application for a District Grant to support provision of fresh produce for the CS#1 food pantry over the next 12 months.  In addition the club has approved $2,000 to support the purchase of freezers for the CS#1 food pantry as part of our disbursements.  CS#1 were the proposed beneficiary for our cancelled Trivia Night this year.  Click here to learn more about the great work of CS#1.
