District 9685 Conference – Newcastle
Members of the Rotary Club of Erina attended the District 9685 conference in Newcastle 29-31 March. A highlight was the End Polio walk along the waterfront to spread the word about the work Rotarians are doing to do just that – End Polio.
Along with many other Rotary Clubs, the Rotary Club of Erina has been involved with fundraising for drought relief. Final distribution of funds raised by Central Coast clubs will be distributed soon, with the Rotary Club of Lightning Ridge overseeing the final amount.

Operation Jaywick was a special operation undertaken in World War II. In September 1943, 14 commandos and sailors from the Allied Z Special Unit raises Japanese shipping in Singapore Harbour, sinking seven ships. Initial training for the raid was carried out at Refuge Bay, a remote and inaccessible area on the Hawkesbury River.
A re-dedication ceremony for this event took place at Point Clare on Saturday 29th September.
