Sussex Rotary Is Growing!
Sussex Rotary was proud to induct its newest member, Lara Robinson, on Monday, October 6th, 2020, at the weekly meeting.
 
Presiding over the induction were Angie Cummings, current Club President, and Rhoda Wilson, past president and current Club Treasurer. Angie welcomed Lara to the Club and, Rhoda shared a few insights about Lara for the Club...
 
"A long-time resident of Sussex having lived here most of her life, Lara has three children, two who have graduated and one still in school. Lara was a hairstylist for fourteen years and then transitioned into Human Services to work with youth and adults in group homes and services.

When the new Civic Centre opened, Lara reconnected with her love of aquatics. It was during this time that she started bringing clients to the pool and soon became a regular herself. Lara was approached to volunteer in childminding and then started teaching aquatic lessons. Four years later, she is now the Co-Manager and Aquatics Coordinator of the Nutrien Civic Centre. 

Lara has a background in customer service and human services which lend themselves perfectly to her day to day responsibilities at the Centre. She has often been heard saying this is a culmination of everything she loves and has found her spot. She feels by joining Rotary she now has a greater ability to give back to the community.
"

Welcome to Sussex Rotary, Lara! 
Sussex Rotary Hike the Bluff 2020

Sunday, October 4th, 2020, was a beautiful day for the first annual fall 'Hike to the Bluff!'

Rotarians brought family members, friends, and of course, their pets for a stroll through the woods until reaching the rock cliff, also known as “The Bluff.” Social time, with Liv’s homemade cookies, was enjoyed before the downhill trek back.

The Bluff has become a family-favourite hike with over 100 vehicles lined along the road to enjoy the beautiful fall day.

Sussex Rotary at Giermindl's Old Bavarian Restaurant

On a brisk, rainy Friday evening, September 18th, 2020, the Sussex Rotary descended on the local Giermindl's Old Bavarian Restaurant for what would be our inaugural fall Club social. With over thirty in attendance, the initially quiet evening warmed up like a wiener schnitzel as great German cuisine was coupled with great company and conversation.

German meals were served with a variety of traditional German beverages with which to enjoy them. The restaurant provided musical entertainment throughout the evening; first serving up a repertoire of traditional German backdrop music and, as crowd participation increased, shifted to less traditional 99 Luftballons, Der Piano Mann and Krokodil Rock.

Lots of conversation ensued and, while the dance floor was unavailable due to COVID restrictions, our very own Alex Coffin treated the facility to a sampling of his interpretation of time-honoured German choreography...
