Berowra Apex Club 40th Anniversary

This year Berowra Apex Club celebrates its 40th birthday, and we’re throwing a party! We would love to see all past members and their partners there for some food, drinks and to reminisce about the good old days. The party will be held at Berowra RSL on Saturday 4th November at 7:30pm. See the flyer for more details.

Apex has a proud history serving the Berowra community. The first meeting to establish a Club in Berowra was held in 1976. In December 1977 we received our Charter and thus became a fully fledged Apex Club.

In the early days Service schemes took priority, such as cleaning up the seven barbecue areas that were on Berowra Waters Road leading down to the ferry. Doing repairs and mowing for elderly residents. Fund raising gradually took over and we sold numerous Azalea plants. Cash a can was also quite lucrative. Now it’s the Woodchop, Santa Sleigh and Christmas tree sales.

All in all the Berowra community is in good hands thanks to Apex and the other Service Clubs. We encourage anyone who is interested in giving something back to the community to consider joining Apex.

Blues Mobile Trek for Kids is Underway

The Berowra Apex team have hit the road in their “Blues Mobile”, driving across NSW and South Australia in the annual Trek4Kids rally to support the Starlight Foundation. You can follow their progress live and donate to to this worthy charity.

The 2017 Trek4Kidz is a week-long event, exploring different regional areas of the Australian countryside by car. Since its inception, the Trek has visited more than 400 towns, 45 schools and raised over $1,600,000 for the Starlight Children’s Foundation. This year the trek will be starting off in Nowra and winding their way down the Murray River to Renmark in South Australia and finally ending back in Forbes.

HOW YOU CAN HELP If you want to help the Starlight Children’s Foundation, donate to the team now – 100% of donations will be given to Starlight.

Berowra Apex would not be able to help Starlight without the support of Trek Sponsors including Berowra Car Care, Berowra Village Tavern, Nobby Kitchens and Francesca Parrino.

Berowra Woodchop 2017

Mark your diary – the annual Apex Berowra Woodchop Festival will be held this year on August 13th 2017 at the Berowra Village Tavern.  Stallholder application forms are now available.

Now in its 23rd year, Woodchop is an old style “fair” where the community joins together to enjoy the festival atmosphere, market stalls, amusement rides, food and wine tasting, live music and a world class round of the NSW Axemen’s competition.

Woodchop attracts thousands people, with many local schools, community groups and Hornsby Council being represented. All proceeds raised from Woodchop are returned to the community via Apex service programs and donations.

If you are interested in holding a stall, please submit an application form. The closing date for applications is Sunday 9th July 2017 – get in quick, as we had to turn stall holders away last year!
