North Sydney Sunrise Rotary visits Molong

Posted on September 15, 2020 at 5:55 AM

In mid - July 2020 a group of Rotary Club of North Sydney Sunrise club members and their partners visited Molong.

The Past President of the club, Allan Coates and the current Club Secretary, Allen Colburt together with Janis Glasson & Margaret Dean of Molong Rotary Club attended a meeting of the Cabonne Shire Council on Tuesday afternoon to thank the council for their $5,000 Community Assistance Program Grant.

A further donation of $,3000 from Rotary Club of North Sydney Sunrise was added to the grant and the amount of $8,000 was matched by the Rotary Australia World Community Service to provide $16,000 to Molong’s two schools.

These funds will be used to cover the costs of excursions for the students of Molong Central School and St Joseph’s School when travel restrictions allow.

A Drought Support Celebration Evening was held at the Molong RSL Club on Wednesday night with approximately 50 attendees hearing speakers from both Rotary Clubs and Doug Kinlyside the Area Governor of the newly formed Rotary District 9705.

We also heard thank you addresses by Kevin Beatty , Cabonne Shire Mayor and from Jack Thomas , School Captain , Molong Central School representing the students of Molong.

The Rotary Club of North Sydney Sunrise would like to thank the Molong community for welcoming them and especially the Molong Rotary club for their assistance in obtaining the Council Grant and hosting a very enjoyable dinner.

Both clubs look forward to continuing their co-operation with future projects in the town.
