The Rotary Club of The Hills-Kellyville

The Rotary Club of The Hills-Kellyville  is an active and enthusiastic Club which was formed from the amalgamation of the Rotary Clubs of Baulkham Hills, Kellyville (2009) and Winston Hills (2015).

Our Club is involved in many activities at both a local and international level covering aspects such as community service, international service, vocational service and youth. 

 Some of our current and recent projects are The Sydney Hills Garden Competition, Jazz at the Pines , Christmas Tree Sales, Writing Competition for local schools, Australia Day ceremony,  sponsorship of the Bourke Public School breakfast programme,   Youth Exchange students, Rotary Youth Leadership, numerous partnership projects in India and Sri Lanka and supporting local causes such as North West Disability Services and the Children’s Hospital at Westmead.

To give you some idea of what Rotary is involved in have a look at a video of some of our activities on this link https://youtu.be/DVDZCfrgxGc

Of course while our projects do provide good fellowship as well as good service we also also like to have fun and fellowship at our social events.

  If you would like to give something back to the community and enjoy fellowship and fun with like minded individuals you are always welcome at one of our meetings.

Vale Bruce Pike

 

We were saddened to learn that Rotarian Bruce Pike passed away on the 24th June.

Bruce joined the Baulkham Hills Rotary Club in 1976 a year after it was chartered and remained a member of that Club and the merged The Hills-Kellyville Rotary Club until he passed away.

Bruce had a lifelong involvement with the garden and nursery industries both through his family’s business and as a valued member of the industry body which was recognised by his life membership of that organisation.

I first met Bruce when I joined Rotary in 1985 and while Bruce did not get involved as a Board member of the Club during the time I knew him, he contributed in other ways such as his extensive contacts within his industry and the local community and his dry wit and good humour when he was called on to act as Sergeant.

In the last few years his periods of ill health, extensive travels and commitments at his farm reduced his regular attendance at Club meetings, but when he did attend, he enjoyed the fellowship and contributed as much as he could.

His advice and contacts were also much appreciated when the Club carried out projects such as the Sydney Hills Garden Competition, Open Gardens and in recent times the establishment of the Baulkham Hills Community Garden.  As well as this Bruce also acted as a judge in the Sydney Hills Garden Competition.

We will miss Bruce from our ranks and offer our sympathy to Wendy and his family.
