Rotary van out and about

OVER summer many folk kick back and take a bit of a breather by the beach or in the bush.

But for Rotary members it is often a busy time.

This time of year there are regularly many public events and the Rotary food van is often called on to help out.

Over the past weeks, in preparation for such events, our members have been making improvements to the van in order to enable larger numbers of customers to be catered for with more ease.

Better and more efficient batteries, solar panel upgrades and LED strip lighting have been installed in addition to a custom-built grey water tank and non-slip access ramps.

All these things provide a much safer and environmentally friendly work space.

Depending on the event you will find a variety of wholesome foods on sale at our van.

We can do the standard sausages in bread rolls to gourmet wallaby burgers, marinated chicken or Asian influenced marinated quail all served up with healthy mixed garden salads.

In addition, we can also deliver hot and cold drinks and top it all off with a friendly chat and a big smile.

The next event we will be at is the famous Koonya Garlic Festival on February 26.

On Saturday, March 12 the van will be used to support our annual helicopter trip to Tasman Island.

Guests will be provided with some delicious sustenance prior to taking off in a helicopter to Tasman Island.

There they will have the once in a lifetime opportunity to explore the heritage listed lighthouse buildings and participate in a guided tour of the lighthouse by an ex-lighthouse keeper.

After time to savour the views of the highest sea cliffs in the southern hemisphere they will be choppered back to their base at Safety Cove.

Support for this year’s event is overwhelming and we are likely to be fully subscribed.

If you are interested in trips in 2023 you may register your name by ringing Arnold McShane on 0418 493 767.

Everything Rotarians do is part of giving back to the communities we live in as well as to communities further afield and overseas.

Feel free to call the president of Tasman Rotary, Jim Anderson on 0488 751 955 or chat with one of us at the Rotary van at any upcoming event.
