The Pat Rogan Walkway Is Confirmed By Council

The City of Canterbury Bankstown has resolved to rename the Salt Pan Creek Walkway, the Pat Rogan Walkway, in honour of Mr Patrick Rogan, a former State Member for East Hills. Mr Rogan was a significant member of the community and played a vital role in public matters and success of many clubs and community organisations in NSW.

Mr Rogan was a major contributor to the local community both during his time as the state member for East Hills, being a strong advocate for local infrastructure as well as a supporter and patron of many local clubs and groups. He was a passionate supporter of the environment, and thus the naming of this walkway, which winds it’s way through semi-urban wetlands and mangrove forests is a wonderful testament to this passion.

Serving as a Board member of the Revesby Workers’ Club (1995-2010), and eventually Club President (2008-2010), Mr Rogan also served as a very effective Chairman of ClubsNSW (1999-2004) and was posthumously awarded an OAM in 2016.

This recognition of Pat Rogan is very deserving. The re-naming of the walkway is set to take place 11am, Tuesday 17 July 2018 at Cutting Reserve, Davies Road, Padstow.

East Hills View Club Celebrates 57 Years!

On Monday June 18 2018 the ladies of East Hills VIEW Club celebrated the 57th birthday of their club with a gala lunch at Revesby Workers Club. The committee had chosen a ‘regal’ theme for this year. Many members embraced the theme and cape with tiaras, long gloves and dressed in purple. One member even wore a long purple cloak with a 9fake0 ermine collar.

A great day was had by all. In addition to the lunch and delicious birthday cake, there was entertainment, raffles and even a book sale to boost their coffers.

For anyone interested in joining a wonderful group of ladies who, through their events help support the Smith Family and are driven by the mission of creating social change in Australian communities by empowering women to have their voices on issues of importance for the future wellbeing of Australian society,  can call Bev on 9771 5457 or visit www.view.org.au for further information.

Do Something Day – ‘Winter Is Ruff’

Revesby Workers’ will be giving their best for Do Something Day on Wednesday 25 July with ‘Winter is Ruff’, an initiative encouraging others to give back with a gesture of kindness.

Revesby Workers’ are inviting the community todonate new items and support the RSPCA and our many furry friends from 2 to 29 July 2018 for Do Something Day.

A series of Blue Collection Bins will be positioned in the Clubs Foyer for donation of Bedding, Treats, Blankets and Toys. Each Bin is clearly marked to make your donation even easier.

Blankets – Snug as a bug in a rug, new blankets to keep our furry friends warm

Bedding – Soft pet beds will keep our animal friends cosy and comfortable

Toys – Don’t forget some time for play. FUN will keep the blues at bay.

Treats – Yum in my tum, we love our treats best. Tinned or dry, we don’t really mind.

Important Note: All blankets, bedding, treats and toys donated must be new and in original packaging. No fresh food treats, tinned, packaged or dry only. All food items to be within their used by date.

RSPCA NSWcare for more than 35,000 injured, neglected, sick, surrendered and unwanted animals each year. Shelters are a place where people can seek advice on their pet’s health and temperament. They are also a haven for animals that have been abandoned, lost, or have been victims of cruelty or neglect.

The coming months are challenging for the RSPCA. As the cold sets in, each and every day becomes more of a struggle for the animals they care for.

The support provided through the Do Something Day ‘Winter is Ruff’ initiative will go a long way in helping these animals on their road to recovery.

The Do Something Day campaign aims to drive the community to actively participate in actions of good by donating or volunteering as an individual or an organisation. Revesby Workers’ hopes everyone gets involved by going above and beyond through acts of kindness.

So make a difference this Do Something Day, it will leave you Feline Pawsitively Pawsome!
