Hi all not a lot has happened this week good, it’s to have a spell.
Sadly, news reached us this week of the passing on Friday 15th March of Past President John Vanstone, a long serving and valued member of the Murray Bridge Club. John was a member for 35 years before relocating to Adelaide.
We learned a little more about the Sanderson Trust with Tim Klar our guest speaker last week and how it operates.
Please keep in mind the visit by the Rotary Club of Adelaide on the weekend of April 13th and 14th, a green sheet will go around at Tuesday night’s meeting and the Ambrose Golf Tournament on 18th April.
Committee meetings are this week, a board meeting to follow at the home of Sam and Elizabeth Cozens.
That’s about it for me, see you all Tuesday night with a surprise.
Cheers Gordon

Loxton Conference 2024

Conference 2024 has now concluded after a packed program at Loxton
Approximately 350 people attended the Plenary Sessions and 300 attended the gala dinner at Selena Estate.
The Murray Bridge contingent were challenged, entertained and informed by the wide range of speakers and Soapbox presenters.
This may well have been the last District Conference to be held in our District as we move into the Regionalisation model after July this year.
As part of this, our next get together will be in April next year at the Morphettville Racecourse for a "Rotary Impact Summit".
The Summit will be a collaboration between D9800 (Melbourne) and our own D9510.
Watch for more information.
Below are images of some of the Murray Bridge attendees plus the winner of the "guess how many lollies in the jar" competition.

Bread Tags For Wheelchairs

More bread tags recycled, more wheelchairs provided...... we are now up to 92 wheelchairs. Samantha and Joan are our latest recipients. Oh, and did we mention we have recycled 12 tonnes of plastic bread tags in
Australia? ♻

“You have changed two lives for the good, and forever.” Neil Silver

Writing this article I could not go past using the above quote as a header. As a Club we can be proud to have been part of this amazing act of kindness, through providing the financial means for two operations removing the disfiguring deformity of cleft lip/palate for two bright eyed young ladies, Nani and Sabrina.
When I reported this project to you last November, I indicated there was good promise of a great outcome for Nani, an outcome we can now share with a lovely photo.
Through an act of good fortune, of God or an amazing coincidence, the surgical operation for Nani was fully prepared, at the same time as Nani and Sabrina were ready to go, so both were admitted to the surgical theatre for the cost of one which we had provided! Wow already!
You might notice that Nani has a protruding tooth, which will be straightened in the near future.
Neil Silver is the contact person for the “Buy a Smile” project.

Trip Of A Lifetime!

Hamlin Fistula Foundation
Excitement is building as our March Hamlin Ethiopian Adventurers are about to embark on their trip of a lifetime in just under 4 weeks’ time! 
Everyone is so excited to see firsthand the life-changing work of Dr Catherine Hamlin and to see the direct impact of their support on women with devastating childbirth injuries.
With just a few places left on our next Adventure in November, don’t miss your chance to do something extraordinary.
Hamlin Adventurers begin with an insider’s tour of Hamlin’s iconic Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital, where the staff share their stories and provide an insight into their work.
The highlight for many Adventurers is meeting some of the brave and beautiful fistula patients, whose resilience is truly inspiring to them and everyone at Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia who work so hard to help them recover from their injuries.
Other stops include the Hamlin College of Midwives, where Adventurers meet teachers and midwifery students and Desta Mender rehabilitation centre, where patients with complex and long-term fistula injuries continue to heal and learn new skills. 
Of course, there is ample time to enjoy the cultural and scenic highlights of southern Ethiopia, including the traditional lifestyles of various tribal groups in the Omo Valley and spectacular Ethiopian scenery and wildlife at Mago National Park. 
Plus much, much more…
Secure your place and register for the trip of a lifetime to Ethiopia

Trip of a lifetime
Pack your bags and set off on your AMAZING Ethiopian Adventure!
As an Adventurer, the vital funds you raise support the life-changing work of Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia, which makes a positive impact on women and their communities.

I hope you will join us in November! Register your place today or learn more at visitethiopia.hamlin.org.au.
