Congratulations to John Whimpress on a very successful Aged and Carers Expo on Thursday. With around 30 exhibitors there was something there for everyone to find. Well done, John, there has been some great feedback.
Our intrepid travellers have returned safe and sound from their journey to the unknown with plenty of tales to tell, I’m sure.
Thursday night was the last quarterly Presidents meeting at Mount Barker with Area Governor, Tim Klar with recapping on the year’s club meetings and projects Clubs have managed, it’s also been a great time of fellowship between the clubs in our area. Sadly, this was the final President’s meeting with no more reporting as Rotary moves forward with the Pilot Regionalisation. That’s progress.
We look forward to Sunday’s, Guess Who’s Coming to Lunch it’s always a great day of fellowship in making connections. Thank you to all the host families for offering their homes.
With the Changeover fast approaching please don’t forget to reply soon we need to know numbers.
That’s it for another week see you Tuesday night.
Cheers Gordon.

Guess Who Came To Lunch?

Sunday 2nd June was a day for friends either old or new as they joined around a table for a meal.
Thanks to the five hosts (Jenny & Rob Walters, Julieanne Sissman, Bev & John Scarvelis, Vicki & Jim Mason and Rhonda & Robin LeGallez) for opening their homes and providing a meal for up to 8 people. Twenty eight guests were all phoned on Sunday morning to advise them of their destination and the hosts found out who their guest were as they opened the door.
Funds raised from the day will be directed to District 9510 Centenary Legacy Project, Aboriginal Chronic Disease Prevention Project.

Aged & Carers Expo

The Murray Bridge Performing Arts & Function Centre was the venue for the inaugural Aged & Carers Expo held 30th May 2024.
Members of the Rotary Club of Murray Bridge combined to facilitate this much needed free event.
Conceived and implemented by Rotarian John Whimpress, 30 agencies associated with the aged and carers provided information booths. Throughout the day at least 500 interested people visited and sought information. In addition, three information sessions were held in the upstairs meeting room.
Troughout the day the majority of members of the Rotary Club assisted with setup, greeting visitors and providing a BBQ which was supplied at no cost to diners. Those who were able were asked to make a gold coin donation.
At the conclusion of the day, many exhibitors offered praise for the initiate shown and providing a focal point for those seeking advise.

Expired Film & Old Chrome

Ethan Klemm and another photographer Mel Alexander are working on a photography project, documenting car culture in South Australia using vintage cameras. By using vintage cameras they hope to achieve a classic look to the photos, and create a nostalgic colour and texture. They have recently won a small grant from the Rural City of Murray Bridge funding this project supported by the Rotary Club of Murray Bridge. The vision is to end up with a small booklet and to exhibit their work. Ethan's father Brenton Klemm was a past Rotarian of the Rotary Club of Murray Bridge and well known to the older Rotarian members. Ethan was also a graduate of a Youth Program in the Rotary Club as a younger person. He is currently 24 years old and works at Bow Hill Engineering. Ethan demonstrated some of his photography and ideas at the Rotary meeting on Tuesday and we look forward to the end result. John Scarvelis

Celebration of Culture at St Jude

Every year, our students hold a Cultural Day, a special day to celebrate the richness and diversity of cultures that make up our community.
It's a day full of buzz, excitement, and creativity. Students embrace and showcase their unique traditions and customs through dances, songs, art, drama, fashion shows, and poetry.
We celebrated Cultural Day last week at St Jude’s Girls’ Secondary School. Our girls portrayed the theme, “Save the culture, Inspire the future”, reminding us of the profound impact of preserving our culture.
Thanks to the teamwork of our staff and students for putting this together!
