On Monday 16th April, two local community minded people were made  Rotary's Paul Harris Fellows to honour their outstanding service to community groups and Rotary. 
 
What is a Paul Harris Fellow   

A Paul Harris Fellow is a recognition award that The Rotary Foundation has for  expressing its appreciation for a substantial contribution to its humanitarian and educational programs. It is named for our founder, Paul Harris, a Chicago lawyer who started Rotary International with three business associates in 1905. 

How is it initiated 

When $US1000 is contributed by a Rotary  Club to The Rotary Foundation, a request can be made for an individual to be recognised as a Paul Harris Fellow; that person can be a Rotarian or a member of the community who is not a Rotarian. Such a person is considered to have made a substantial contribution to and an outstanding commitment to the Club or the community. 

What is involved 

When a person is recognised as a Paul Harris Fellow, they are presented with a Certificate signed by the Rotary International President and the Chairman of the Trustees of The Rotary Foundation, and a lapel pin and medallion. 

            

                  

About the Awardees 

Engadine Rotary gives an Engadine Senior a new lease of life .
 
The recent donation by Engadine Rotary of a rebuilt mobile scooter has given a new lease of life to  Les Holmes, a 90 year Engadine Senior.
As Les is no longer able to drive a car, he has regained his mobility  and is now able to go shopping, to visit  his doctor and  given him a new sense of independence .
 
The Scooter was originally owned by Rotary past president Greg Mokeeff , it had been fully renovated with new parts and battery now  like brand new

Engadine Rotary Continues to Support John Paul Village  Dementia program 

Engadine Rotary Continues to Support John Paul Village  Dementia program

At our recent "How to Volunteer" presentation evening, Engadine Rotary presented John Paul Village with a cheque for $2750 to purchase additional Ipads to continue their ongoing dementia program
 
Studies being conducted overseas, have shown that  iPads and their applications have helped improve motor skills, provide memory stimulation and cognitive function and create a positive impact on the social interaction of those with dementia. This is proving to be the case at John Paul Village.
 
Engadine Rotary, as part of its social programs, believes that we should be supporting all areas of our local society including Nursing homes . We therefore wish the Diversional staff at John Paul Village continued success with the expanded use of these ipads.
One member has commented that "the presentation from JPV on ipods/pads was very touching on how powerful listening to music in aged care centres and the positive results it achieves."

About Our Club's Territory  

Being surrounded by national parks, Engadine has within its territory , some of the most spectacular coast line and bush land in this state . As you enter the district from either the north, south or west , you soon become aware of  the surrounding National Parks and the rugged nature of the countryside . The Royal National Park is  Australia's First dedicated national park and the world's second. In the Heathcote National park, the ridges and drier slopes are covered in forest dominated by angophoras and eucalypts such as bloodwood, greygum, Sydney peppermint, and scribbly gum. Following the upper reaches of the Woronora River leads to the Woronora Dam and reservoir which form part of Sydney's water supply  

Photos of some of the local Scenes appear in the above Carousel. They are Lady Carrington Drive National Park , Woronora Dam and Reservoir , Stanwell  Park from Bald Hill , on the Woronora River are   Kingfisher Pool, Engadine Lagoon and The Needles , and finally Historic Helensburgh with original Railway tunnel (1884) and Station (1889) reference Helensburgh Historical Society
