ROTARY CLUB OF BLOUBERG

The Rotary Club of Blouberg is a dynamic group of professionals and business people who are dedicated to the Rotary ideal of 'Service above Self.' We meet every week for a friendly meal with good fellowship, but our business is to help charities, institutions and needy people in the area north of Cape Town ranging from Blouberg to Brooklyn, from Du Noon to Parow. We are one of 63 clubs of Rotary District 9350, which covers Angola, Namibia and western South Africa, and proud to be part of Rotary International. We participate enthusiastically in Rotary's global charity and youth programmes.

We meet at 18.00 for 18.30 every Thursday evening at the Italian Club, Donegal Street, Rugby. Very occasionally we may choose to meet elsewhere, so it is best to contact us to make sure if you wish to visit us. We welcome visitors to any of our meetings. Because we need to notify the Italian Club of our meals, could any visitors please contact Anton Wolheim on: Tel: 082 882 2202 or e-mail awollheim@iafrica.com by 12.00 on the Thursday we meet if possible?

CURVES MILNERTON FOOD DRIVE

We have had a long and happy history with Curves in Milnerton, who, since 2007, have helped us with food donations which we pass on to the needy in our area, and with vouchers for our annual fundraising Golf Day. This year, we will be the beneficiaries of Curves’ ‘We CAN Feed the Need’ food drive from the 5th to the 16th May. If anyone in the Milnerton area wishes to help us feed those who need it this May, could you please donate canned and other non-perishable food to us through the Curves drive? Please contact Curves at 083 395 1811, or email Cedric at csegal323@gmail.com, or drop your donation of food at Curves, 5b Paddocks Centre, Racecourse Road, Milnerton.

It is slightly bigger than an ID book with a laminated soft cover for durability and contains:

1 A personal Identification page
2. The Object of Rotary in English and Afrikaans
3. The Four Way Test
4. The Rotary Grace
5. 51 Club visit sections for completion

ROTARY RECIPES

To raise much-needed funds, we invited Rotarians, their families and friends to contribute over 130 delicious recipes to make up our Blouberg Rotary Recipe Book. The recipes are tried and tested and include many South African classics as well as a few exotic additions. We are selling the book, an attractive A5-sized booklet, at only R99.00 each. This is less than R1.00 per recipe! Please help our club to continue its valuable work by supporting us. If you are interested you can contact Lynne at lynnewade@mweb.co.za or Victor at crouserv@aforbes.co.za to enquire about purchasing this versatile addition to any kitchen.

A SHORT HISTORY
Click on image to enlarge

A SHORT HISTORY

We were chartered on the 21st November 1986 with 24 members, our sponsor club being the Rotary Club of Milnerton. Our first president was Allan Fraser and our first meetings were held at the Blouberg Hotel. Right from the beginning, we leapt eagerly into service to the community by becoming involved with Vaatjieplaas farm school and St Jospeh's Home for chronically ill children in Philippi. We also held a fund-raising Carols by Candlelight at the Bayside shopping Centre. In 1992 we proudly inducted Pat Strydom as our first lady member. 2009 saw the sad closure of our sponsoring Rotary Club of Milnerton, but events moved full circle as many of their members joined us.

ROTARY & NELSON MANDELA

The Rotary Club of Blouberg is deeply saddened by the passing of one of South Africa’s greatest sons, past President Nelson Mandela.
From President Ron Burton of Rotary International:
Rotary members worldwide are deeply saddened to learn of the death of Nelson Mandela, a man who overcame unimaginable hardships to emerge as one of the greatest leaders of our time -- and one of our greatest humanitarians. In 1995, President Mandela received the Rotary International Award of Honor. Two years later, he accepted Rotary’s highest award, the Rotary Award for World Understanding. In true fashion, he donated the $100,000 grant accompanying the award to the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund. Rotary is especially grateful for his strong support of the global effort to eradicate the crippling disease polio, our organizaton’s highest priority. Mr. Mandela himself helped administer oral polio vaccine to the children of South Africa, which has been declared polio-free. Our deepest condolences go to Mr. Mandela’s family, to his millions of admirers worldwide, and especially to the People of South Africa, including the country’s Rotary members, who knew him as a friend and staunch supporter of humanitarian service.
