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 Deidre Crouser on: Tel: 083 245 6093 or e-mail deidrecrouser@gmail.com by 12.00 on the Thursday we meet if possible?

CHRISTMAS FOOD COLLECTIONS

We ask the public to help us provide basic groceries for old age pensioners & those on grants over Christmas. They struggle to make ends meet & the escalating price of food means that they are incredibly grateful for our Christmas food parcels. PLEASE ADD A CAN OR PACKET OF NON-PERISHABLE FOOD TO YOUR GROCERIES when we collect at the Spar in the Piazza Centre, Main Road, Parklands, on Saturday 12 November; and at the Pick ‘n Pay, West Coast Village Shopping Centre, Sandown Road, Parklands, on Saturday and Sunday 26th and 27th November. If you wish to donate food or cash to help us but cannot shop there on those days, please contact Lynne at lynnewade@mweb.co.za or 073 919 3268.

PARTY FOR BLIND AND DISABLED

On Saturday 26th November we are inviting 130 members of the Lighthouse Association for the Blind, Cheshire Homes, Robertson House, Huis Ysterplaat and Huis Zonnekus to a very special Christmas Party. We want them to enjoy a feast of Italian food, treats on the table, delicious desserts and drinks while they enjoy popular music and a comedy routine from blind DJ Gary. Whether on crutches or in wheelchairs or in need of a sighted partner, the guests DANCE to the music while Blouberg Rotarians keep the refreshments coming. However, we need assistance to be able to hold this event. Please consider giving us a donation to help – just R100 will sponsor one blind or disabled or elderly pensioner.

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.

CHILDREN'S HUB APPEAL

Moving home is an ideal opportunity to clear out any clutter. We appeal to you to please consider putting aside any children’s items that are no longer of use to your child. We need: stationery, arts and crafts, educational toys, games, school clothing such as shirts, jerseys and socks. We will collect your unused items and distribute to the many less fortunate children in our community. Please contact Deidre Crouser on 083 245 6093 or 021 556 1073 or via email deidrecrouser@gmail.com . Blouberg Rotary thanks the kind children and parents who have already contributed to this project.

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.
