On Wednesday morning 25th May, five Rotarians met at Casey Fields to provide a BBQ service for the students and staff of Nossal High School at their annual Sports Day.  The team of Rotarians was made up of Laury Gordyn, Trevor Watson, David Anderson, Graham Johnstone and Sam McCurdy. 
Although the Rotary BBQ had been idle for over a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, it performed magnicently and was kept in full operation from 10:00am to 1:30pm, as the team cooked sausages and onions for an estimated crowd of 1,000 staff and students. A small group of students cooked vegie burgers on a small BBQ to satisfy the needs of vegetarians. The food and some other resources were provided by the school through the excellent management of Nossal's Jason Bell.
A novel approach to this event was that some Nossal students and staff took turns at collecting payment for the food, or cooking the vegie burgers, while others assisted by serving the food to a hungry but appreciative crowd.   This arrangement left the Rotarians to concentrate on the serious work of keeping up with the demand for cooked sausages.
All in all it was a great team effort and a successful collaboration between the staff, students and the Rotarians.
