Happy New Year from the Rotary Club of Bali Canggu.
Canggu Rotarians have been busy since we last wrote in Bali Advertiser.
We are an active group of like-minded people who offer service to local projects. We are vibrant and passionate about serving the local Canggu community and beyond.
On 22nd January we welcomed our latest member to the club Mr. Terje Nilsen, who many of you will know as the owner of Harcourts, Seminyak branch. Terje is passionate about helping the community and already has projects of his own in East Bali.
Next month we will be inducting a further three new members, bringing our membership to 16. We are looking to increase our numbers in the coming months so if you would like to help your community we invite you to come and join our bi-weekly meetings which are held on the first and third Tuesday of each month in the Tugu Hotel at Batu Bolong.
We gather at 6pm for a social gathering followed by a meeting that typically includes an inspiring guest speaker and runs from 6:30pm to 7:30pm.
As well as meeting like-minded people, learning about club projects, listening to guest speakers presenting on interesting topics, you are welcome to join the evening chatting to members, visiting Rotarians and guests after the meeting finishes.
Since our last article we have been continuing our fundraising efforts for the people of Lombok to build temporary housing and provide shelter to victims of the quake in outlying areas. Now that the rainy season is here assistance is needed more than ever.
To date we have received pledges from Rotary Clubs overseas of AUD$ 100,000 in the form of a grant from RC Warchoupe in NSW and a proposal for Euros 65,000 from RC Amsterdam in Holland. As well as an offer of assistance to provide fresh water from an organisation in Singapore.
Our Rotarian Donna Greene is running a campaign to provide school equipment (books, crayons, pencils, rubbers, etc) for the kids on Lombok and we have collection boxes in place at Capt. Cook Sports Bar in Banjar Semer, Indohomes office on Jalan Sunset Seminyak and Segara Village Hotel in Sanur. More collection points will be added soon. If you are willing to be one of these let us know.
We have a lot of project ideas planned for 2019 and are supporting these by a series of fundraising events. In March we will be hosting our first fundraising Gala Dinner, to be held at the Tugu Hotel on 30th March 2019. There will be many raffle prizes kindly donated by local businesses and some great auction prizes. For information or tickets for the event please email Tricia Kim or Klara Dallas at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
All are welcome to join our meetings and find out who we are and what we do. We look forward to seeing you soon.
