Wimpy's Wise Words

PRESIDENTS ROUND UP         7th August 2022
I know I wanted to have variety in our meeting venues over the year but I was not expecting it to be so often so soon. This week due to the golf club unable to accommodate us re staffing issues due to their covid problems we will be at SWANPORT HOTEL.
I would like to thank Lyn and  Jacquie and all the soup makers for flying the club banner at the homeless function last Tuesday at the town hall, and I believe all went to plan.
I have attached a link to a project called Heart of the Nation regarding AED
( automated external defibrillator )     https://vimeo.com/735668937  which I believe could be a project that we as a Club or individual could be involved with.
I know I keep saying about membership but is fast becoming a major issue for the club, so please keep reminding the people you associate with the benefits of getting involved with Rotary.
It was good news that Lesley is now home in Murray Bridge and Kevin’s knee responding after his operation.
See you at Swannies on Tuesday night.

Rotary supporting great youth programs…..

Have you heard about this great organisation - Operation Flinders?

Operation Flinders transform the lives of young people from the age of 13 - 18. The 8-day program is held in the northern Flinders Ranges where young people trek up to 100km, experience abseiling, Indigenous culture, bushcraft and build self-confidence through challenging themselves. These young people come from all across South Australia and are typically referred to us as part of a team of 10 from one school or agency.

Once the young person completes an Exercise, they have the opportunity to join the Next Step program. This program opens them up to a world of opportunity and growth to transform their lives!

Did you know that there are approximately 25 Rotary Clubs within this District that support this organisation? There is a campsite on Yankaninna station, home of Operation Flinders, named Rotary Campsite.

The photo below features a team of young people sitting around the campfire at Rotary Campsite and reflecting on their journey. The naming of the campsites is not done lightly and they are named in recognition of people and organisations who have made a significant contribution to Operation Flinders over a long period of time – the location of this campsite is usually midway through the exercise when young people are undergoing their transformation.

Great example of Rotary supporting great youth programs that achieve great outcomes for the future generation. There have been over 9,000 youth who have participated in this program.

Operation Flinders Foundation exists to transform the lives of young people through quality remote outback adventure programs.

The Rotary Foundation has raised more than $15 million in relief contributions to aid Ukrainians affected by the war. And Rotary members worldwide have jumped to help in relief efforts as well— donating over $15 million in aid, gathering and sending critical medical supplies, repurposing logistics networks to source housing, and much more.

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.
