Australia Day Lamington Drop

 
Australia Day began for a few of us with an early morning meet at the home of our Vocational Service Director, Peter Reynolds.  Peter and his wife, Mariana very graciously accepted delivery of club banners, promotional material, masks and "Ask Me about Rotary" buttons on Friday 22nd January, which were stored in their garage for the weekend. On Monday, 25th January, the Reynolds gave up their loungeroom for the afternoon and evening after taking delivery of 29 boxes of lamingtons, each containing 30 lamingtons which they guarded from the sweltering heat with a portable air-conditioner generously donated by Michael & Lillian Hayes, ensuring the chocolate on 870 lamingtons did not melt.  Bright and early on Australia Day, Peter and Mariana set up a collection point in their driveway from which the clubs in our local area could complete COVID check-ins, sanitise their hands, collect the fantastic Australia Day club banners Rotary District 9675 provided, as well as buttons and masks.  Oscar Jones and Rosario Carbarjal from the newly formed Rotary Club of Iron Cove were the first to arrive at 8:30am, collecting 100 lamingtons & coffee vouchers which they delivered to Burwood Police Area Command.
