Top Movie – Must See

Burnie Rotary is supporting the Burnie Works organisation. Books in Homes provides books of choice to families and children. The program aims to inspire young people to develop a love of reading. It also prepares them for school and helps them develop reading skills for life. Books in Homes is available to children who attend a government primary school in Burnie or at the Burnie Child and Family Learning Centre.
Each term, children can choose three books and they will receive them in a personalised book bag.

The movie to be shown is The Boys in the Boat, about the 8-oared rowing crew from the University of Washington in America, who had struggled to survive the Depression years; they heard that the university would provide board and meals if they were good enough to get into a rowing crew. Eventually, they won the final at the 1936 Berlin Olympics [the first three crews finished that race within one second of each other!  Italy was second and Germany came third.]
