     PRESIDENT'S ROUND UP 29th October

This week has been a good news week and I know Rotarian Lyn will enjoy telling the members all about it at Tuesdays meeting.
I would like to thank Rotarian Jim for his excellent work with his follow up with the council and printer regarding the recycle project in conjunction with the Mobilong Club. I am sure Jim will have a lot more to say in the coming months.
As you would be aware we had our Club Board meeting last week, and it was decided that due to low numbers in some of our committees, the Board has decided to amalgamate two committees. The Vocational and International committees were chosen due to a lot of their commitments are the supporting of other projects through our Club donations. This is a short term issue and when we obtain more members we should be able to return to four committees.
On Saturday I was pleased to see the Rotary banner flying at the Market Place. Rotarian Kevin and Roger did a excellent job selling our clubs calendar ( 40).
Once again please keep thinking of members of our community that you could ask to join us at a Rotary Awareness night on January 31st 2023.

What mental health is

Mental health is a state of wellbeing that enables you to deal with what life throws at you.

It is about feeling resilient, enjoying life and being able to connect with others.

Good mental health helps you:

  • cope with the normal stresses of life
  • be productive both at work and in your private life
  • relate well to other people
  • contribute to your community.

Why mental health matters

Almost half of all Australians adults – 7.3 million people – will face mental ill-health at some point. 

It can affect anyone at any stage of life, and can have a negative effect not just on your own life, but also on the people around you, your community and Australia as a whole.

People living with mental ill-health are at higher risk of:

  • having physical health issues
  • being unemployed
  • being homeless
  • being in prison.

The estimated cost of mental ill-health on Australia's economy is up to $220 billion each year.

We are working to build a better mental health system that improves the lives of people with, or at risk of, mental illness.

Mental health treatment and support

If you feel worried, anxious or depressed, seek help.

As a first step, seek online or phone support, or see your doctor.

Salvation Army - Connect Meals

The connect meals have at this time been cancelled.
Renae Phillips, Corps officer at Murray Bridge will be taking up an appointment at Pt Augusta/Peterborough from 11th January 2023 and Adrian & Lydia along with their children will be taking over in Murray Bridge on 18th January 2023.
Renae has arranged to celebrate and honour the highly successful Connect Meals. She has arranged for the Lions Club on November 3rd to prepare a BBQ with Mary and Renae providing Salads and Renae providing cake with members from the service clubs to bring along sweets to share if possible.
This will be a normal Connect Meal with local persons attending.
All members of the Service Clubs are welcome to attend at Salvation Army Hall at 4.45 pm for 5.00pm on November 3rd 2023.
Renae will organise a gift and card for Mary, which will be available for all to sign.
The future of any Connect meals or assistance for some other type of support for the people of Murray Bridge will be discussed with Adrian & Lydia after they have settled into their new position here in Murray Bridge.
The idea of a Connect Meal for the people of Murray Bridge was an idea from the Murray Bridge Rotary Club and in discussions with The Salvation Army it was seen as a good project. How ever M.B Rotary club could see the benefit of involving the other Service Clubs in Murray Bridge to also become involved.
The first meal was served on 6th June 2019 and for the next year an average attendance was 60 persons. This attendance did drop slightly over the next years. Great assistance with the meals was the preparation of excellent healthy meals by Mary and the serving ETC by the members of the Service Clubs.
Apart from the meals, assistance was given by both the Rotary clubs in the major re arrangement of the kitchen area with removal of part of a wall, new floor covering, new serving counter and the supply of a new commercial dishwasher. Other smaller jobs were also undertaken.
A very worthwhile project with great fellowship involving the Service Clubs in Murray Bridge.

Meeting Report From 25th October

The Rotary Club of Murray Bridge Recycling Project was supported by the members on Tuesday night by separating appropriate tablet packets into aluminium and plastic so that they could be recycled. They are being sent to the Adelaide City Council who now have a machine to recycle the materials. This results in less going into landfill. The Project is being led by International Director Roxanne Rowland. Just a little thing with a lot of impact for the environment. It took 20 minutes to fill a couple of cartons. Many hands make light work!

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.
