Katherine Rotary is building towards the grand opening of Katherine's new Computer Club on Sunday, October 25 between 2pm-5pm.
The Katherine Rotary Club has been hard at work fundraising to equip and renovate the new clubhouse, the Rotary Training Room (near Clyde Fenton).
Club secretary Chris Dixon said the renovation was courtesy of the patrons of the Katherine Speedway, and some of its own funds.
A community grant of $2000 from Katherine Town Council, and a helpful donation from Benash, is helping equip the club.
Free sausage sandwiches cooked by the Rotarians will be available from 2pm-5pm on October 25. Everyone will be welcome.
The club has just welcomes its fifth new member in six months, the well known Cathy Highet.
Cathy has lived in Katherine for more than 40 years and in that time has worked tirelessly both in business and in volunteering.
Besides running her own beauty therapy business, Cathy is commanding officer of RAAF 803 Squadron Air Force Cadets and she teaches her cohort resilience, leadership, self-reliance and initiative through varied programs.
Cathy has been involved in a multitude of voluntary organisations including being the president of the Katherine Show Society, the Tick Market and is a passionate member of the Beef and Burgandy Club, besides having input into a whole host of other voluntary organisations.
Cathy recently completed the NT Swade Digital Mentoring course and is a founder member for the Rotary Computer Club.
Cathy runs her own beauty salon and juggles voluntary work, work and hobbies extremely well. Cathy has immediately been co-opted onto the committee that will be bringing the movie "I am Woman" to Katherine Cinema 3. I am Woman is the story of Helen Reddy and this movie has been chosen by Rotary as fundraiser for the fight against polio.
