About Winterfest

another initiative of the ROTARY CLUB of TORONTO SUNRISE

The focus of Rotary is community service.

There are many community needs in our local west Lake Macquarie area related to health and well being. We decided to raise funds and invest our time in an event that would benefit this need. We held our 10th Paddlefest in February this year. The success of Paddlefest – held at the end of Summer – led to the idea of having a smaller scale event run in Winter.

The aim of Winterfest is the same as for Paddlefest:

• Bring people together to have fun

• Use the beautiful natural environment that we all enjoy in Lake Macquarie – and be water based

• Encourage people to try something new

• Help promote our local area by attracting paddlers from further afield

• Encourage people to be involved in physical activity – good for physical and mental well being

• Include activities for diverse ages and abilities

• Raise funds that could be invested in projects to help those in need.
