Wimpy's Weekly Waffle!

First up for this week is congratulate Robin LeGallez for being awarded a Ruby Paul Harris at last weeks DG handover. This was presented to Robin for his outstanding work within the District for all his great work with IT especially during this year’s Conference and at Assembly.
We were able to place the labels on the wine last Tuesday night as our guest speaker and Chair were both in isolation due to Covid and this should be a reminder to all members to be aware that Covid and Influenza is still out there. For all our red wine drinkers this wine is great value, and we look forward to your support.
At our meeting on Tuesday, I would like to make members aware of the clubs QR code which I believe we could use greatly to promote Rotary.
I have attached a link to the River News relating to our change over.
See you on Tuesday night.

Mallee Emu-wren or Black-eared Miner?

Our Club has been involved with the recovery the Mallee Emu-wren for some time and members have assisted in several projects with a view to establishing a viable population in Ngarkat Conservation Park.
Then Covid struck and cross border access quickly put a stop to any further work.
Since then we have had a change of Government at Federal & State level and it appears that the focus for conservation has now been directed to the equally threatened Black-eared Miner which belongs to the same family as our common Noisy Miner.
Funding has allowed a genetic testing program to be established and information relating to this is available from this audio from 8th July ABC Country Hour excerpt. Click to listen (depending on your browser, this may download). Read about the threatened mallee birds at this link https://birdlife.org.au/projects/threatened-mallee-birds  
I have had discussions regarding our Club becoming involved with the Black-eared Miner research and the need to further develop aviary protection at the Monarto Safari Park with Dr Rebecca Boulton.
In addition Bec has forwarded our interest to Latrobe University who are still actively working with Mallee Emu-wrens in Wyperfeld.
Watch this space for more information.

Health Of The River Forum 2022

The Rotary D9510 Health of the River Forum 2022 was held at Calperum Station (27 June to 1 July).  Students from 6 different secondary schools attended.  Under the guidance of Caitlin Polack, Educational Ecologist, the students undertook studies in Environmental Habitat Assessment Surveys including Herbivory Surveys, Cracking Clay Surveys, Soil Condition Testing, Understory Vegetation Surveys, Scat Surveys, Cane Grass Surveys, and Groundwater Condition. 
On Tuesday evening, the students were able to meet resident ecologist, Dr. Heather Neilly, who answered questions about the hypothetical challenge the students had been set.  Wednesday saw the students donning waders to collect water samples which were brought back to the education shed to be studied for invertebrates.  That evening the students were able to meet Courtney Monk, the “Turtle Lady” from Landscapes SA, who gave an in-depth talk about the importance of maintaining a high number of turtles in our river system. 
On Thursday, Rotarian David Crouch from RC Renmark, acted as tour guide with students visiting Lock 5 and the weir system.  David explained the history of the river system, the development of irrigation and horticulture in the Riverland area, and the damage salinity can cause to the river system if the water flows are not well balanced.  Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Renmark provided tea at Calperum Station on Thursday night and then listened to the presentations (with powerpoint) by the students on the hypothetical challenges they had been given.
The students were fully engaged in the studies and activities set by Caitlin Polack.  They worked well together in small groups or altogether and at all times were well behaved.   Sitting around the campfire of an evening was also a highlight for the group. 
Sincere thanks go to the Calperum staff, bus driver, Peter Ryan, Rotarians Bruce Cole and Lou Davey and non-Rotarian volunteers Peter Phillips and Dianne McMahon for their presence and input into a very successful Health of the River Forum.

Rotary Club of Unley set up a new team earlier in the year, called Young Friends of Unley Rotary. They are a group of University students, super passionate to give back and bring smiles to families less fortunate.
They raised money and send food packages to families in Afghanistan who were impacted by war, crime and slavery.
Below are photographs received from Afghanistan showcasing how these young friends' efforts helped provide one month of food supplies to families who needed them most.
Please join us in congratulating the efforts of this young group of Uni students for their efforts, determination and doing good. We are proud to have these smart kids part of our Rotary Club of Unley.

  • FOURTH: The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

End Polio Now

In 1985 Rotary launched PolioPlus to immunize every child in the world against polio. Working with our partners and members of the global health community, together we will end polio.
Through the science of vaccines, Rotary & partners have saved nearly 19 million children from becoming paralyzed by polio. Learn more about our work to End Polio Now and how you can get involved: https://on.rotary.org/3eqtrrr

Rotary has been working to eradicate polio for more than 35 years, and we’ve made incredible progress in the fight to rid the world of it forever.

As a founding partner of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, we've helped to reduced polio cases by more than 99.9 percent.

It’s crucial to eradicate polio from the last two countries where it remains endemic and to keep other countries polio-free.

If all eradication efforts stopped today, within 10 years, polio could paralyze as many as 200,000 children each year.

What is polio?

Polio, or poliomyelitis, is a paralyzing and potentially deadly infectious disease that most commonly affects children under the age of 5. The virus spreads from person to person, typically through contaminated water. It can then attack the nervous system.
