we are hoping that the NSW Government can contribute an additional
$100,000 towards the project,” Dr McPherson said.
A special temporary floating boom and silt curtain was used to stop water
siltation in the bay during construction.                                                                                        &HQWUH" =2+</

                         TO COMMUNITY LEADERS
  The Rotary Club of Berowra honoured four local residents at the Annual Community Service Presentation
                                 Dinner on Wednesday 2nd March 2011.

The first to be presented with an
award was Susan Hunter for her
ongoing service to Zonter Project of
supplying “Birthing Kits” which are
distributed to Third World countries,
thus saving the lives of mothers and
their newborn babies. Her current
major Community Service is to
Camp Breakaway, using her nursing
expertise to educate and assist
new carers in the complex care of
disabled “campers”, which include
children and adults, giving their
parents peace of mind, while they
have a much needed break, and an
opportunity to share and support
each other.
Win Newton, a Berowra resident
for 53 years became a volunteer
“Pink Lady” in the Children’s Ward
at Hornsby Hospital, in 1972.
Win, who is a familiar sight in
her distinctive pink lady uniform,
worked in Hornsby Hospital’s
Lumby Ward for 14 years then
Geraghty Ward for 23 years where
she continues making patients feel
better as she cheerfully assists
them with washing, cutting and
setting their hair. During this time,
Win also volunteered with “Meals        from Berowra Rotary for $1000 for      Asquith. Now over 500 seniors          of the Hornsby area as our retiring
