The Rotary Club of Blouberg is a dynamic group of professionals and business people who are dedicated to the Rotary ideal of 'Service above Self.' We meet every week for a friendly meal with good fellowship, but our business is to help charities, institutions and needy people in the area north of Cape Town ranging from Blouberg to Brooklyn, from Du Noon to Parow. We are one of 63 clubs of Rotary District 9350, which covers Angola, Namibia and western South Africa, and proud to be part of Rotary International. We participate enthusiastically in Rotary's global charity and youth programmes.

A SHORT HISTORY
Click on image to enlarge

A SHORT HISTORY

We were chartered on the 21st November 1986 with 24 members, our sponsor club being the Rotary Club of Milnerton. Our first president was Allan Fraser and our first meetings were held at the Blouberg Hotel. Right from the beginning, we leapt eagerly into service to the community by becoming involved with Vaatjieplaas farm school and St Jospeh's Home for chronically ill children in Philippi. We also held a fund-raising Carols by Candlelight at the Bayside shopping Centre. In 1992 we proudly inducted Pat Strydom as our first lady member. 2009 saw the sad closure of our sponsoring Rotary Club of Milnerton, but events moved full circle as many of their members joined us.

GALA AT THEATRE

TUESDAY 8 AUGUST
We wish to thank the generous sponsors who helped us to make our Gala Night at Milnerton Playhouse, where we invited guests to watch the murder-comedy ‘Let’s Murder Marsha’, a great success. There were 92 guests present, everyone enjoyed the excellent production, and many people walked away happily with raffle prizes. Our corporate guests and our raffle prize sponsors appear on the Sponsor’s graphic at the bottom of this page. Our heart-felt thanks to them for their generosity. While we do not have our final figures yet, we estimate that we raised over R9 000 for our Charity Fund.

CHRISTMAS FOOD COLLECTIONS

We would like to thank everybody who enabled us to collect enough food to make up approx. 120 food parcels for local needy pensioners and people on grants – SuperSpar in Parklands, Pick ‘n Pay (West Coast Village Shopping Centre), Rabie Property Group, ABSA Bank, and the very generous members of the public who made this possible. We deliver our food parcels just before Christmas every year. Here we are sorting the food into the parcels.
CHILDREN'S HUB APPEAL

CHILDREN'S HUB APPEAL

Moving home is an ideal opportunity to clear out any clutter. We appeal to you to please consider putting aside any children’s items that are no longer of use to your child. We need: stationery, arts and crafts, educational toys, games, school clothing such as shirts, jerseys and socks. We will collect your unused items and distribute to the many less fortunate children in our community. Please contact Deidre Crouser on 083 245 6093 or 021 556 1073 or via email deidrecrouser@gmail.com . Blouberg Rotary thanks the kind children and parents who have already contributed to this project.

ROTARY PASSPORTS

Fellow Rotarians, be amongst the first in your Club and District to own a snazzy Rotary Passport, for only R40. The Passport is a great way of keeping a note of your visits to other Clubs (for reference in years to come) and as a record of your ‘Make-Ups’. It is slightly bigger than an ID book with a laminated soft cover for durability and contains:

1 A personal Identification page
2. The Object of Rotary in English and Afrikaans
3. The Four Way Test
4. The Rotary Grace
5. 51 Club visit sections for completion

To purchase these attractive Rotary mementos please contact Victor on crouserv@aforbes.co.za or 083 229 5889
ROTARY RECIPES

ROTARY RECIPES

To raise much-needed funds, we invited Rotarians, their families and friends to contribute over 130 delicious recipes to make up our Blouberg Rotary Recipe Book. The recipes are tried and tested and include many South African classics as well as a few exotic additions. We are selling the book, an attractive A5-sized booklet, at only R99.00 each. This is less than R1.00 per recipe! Please help our club to continue its valuable work by supporting us. If you are interested you can contact Lynne at lynnewade@mweb.co.za or Victor at crouserv@aforbes.co.za to enquire about purchasing this versatile addition to any kitchen. To see a few sample pages, go to our Photo Galleries page.
