On the 29th August, the club held a very special evening to celebrate the life of Harold John Benyon OAM who passed away during COVID.
Rotarians and friends travelled from far and wide to remember John and his wife Helen who was his life partner. John dedicated his life to helping others and the community he loved so dearly. He went above and beyond the call of duty to contribute to his Kenthurst neighbourhood.
The club is pleased to announce the election of an Environmental Officer, Dennis van Someren, who is currently investigating the possibility of establishing a community garden in Kenthurst Village.
On 16 October there will be an official opening of the new playground equipment in John Benyon Rotary Park. The funds for the restoration of the play equipment came from grants from the federal, state, and local governments as well as generous donations from the local community. There will be a BBQ commencing at 12pm.
The club will be at Bunnings BBQ, Dural on 26th October. All funds raised will be for the International Dental Project in Papua New Guinea.
