Service before self

A SUNNY Sunday in April saw the Rotary Club of Lindisfarne host yet another successful car boot sale.

With stalls, a trade table and a barbecue, the club made just more than $1,700, which will be put towards its community projects.

The Rotary Club of Lindisfarne has funded a number of community projects in recent years, which has included the sponsorship of automated external defibrillators (AEDs) that have been made available at Woolworths Lindisfarne, IGA X-Press Lindisfarne and the Lindisfarne Citizens Activities Centre.

A gazebo that was included in the Beltana Park master plan has also been funded by the club.

It has also provided significant support for schools, including supplying books to a local preschool group, sponsoring awards for local schools and conducting mock interviews for Rose Bay High School students.

Through the Rotary student exchange program, the club has hosted a student from Taiwan and sponsored a local student to travel on exchange to Milan, Italy.

Rotary Club of Lindisfarne president Peter O’Hern said he was pleased that the club was embodying the founding spirit of Rotary, which was “service above self.”

“I am proud of the commitment of our members to community service and the incredible amount of time they give up to support our many fundraising and community projects,” he said.
