Change Over Dinner 2018/2019

The Rotary Club of Murray Bridge had its Changeover Night as the first Event at the glamorous new Murray Bridge Racecourse. The night started off listening to The Bridge Strummers and Singers in which 3 Rotarians are members. Did we make a difference! YES!!!! District 9520 Governor Kim Harvey celebrated Murray Bridge's achievements in the District Awards. She overseas 53 Rotary Clubs from Adelaide to Broken Hill. We celebrated Marg Whitehead being awarded a Paul Harris Fellowship for service to the Murray Bridge Community. Her father was a foundation member of the Club. We celebrated Rotarian Bruce Frazer's 55 years in the Club. Rob Walters and Steve Walker were also awarded Paul Harris Fellowships and Robin Le Gallez and Sam Cozens Five Avenues of Service Awards. We also celebrated 30 years of Women in Rotary. Jenny Phillips proposed a toast to Rotary International and the work that is done and DG Kim responded. Trevor Curtis proposed a toast to the partners of Rotary and Bev Curtis responded. Last year's Board members each received a gift and thanks from outgoing President David Altmann and new President Lesley Murray introduced next years Board members. Lesley has some new plans for the Club in 2019-20 and Simon Sickerdick joins the Board as President Elect for 2020 -21. We have two new female members this year in Leanne Walding and Sherida Campbell. It's a busy club if you want to get something done ask a busy Rotarian they say. Rotary allows you to extend yourself by serving the community locally and globally. You can do as little or as much as you can.

Science & Engineering Challenge

The Riverland/Murraylands Science and Engineering Challenge was held at Glossop High School this year, with Year 10 students from 6 High Schools taking part in the competition. Teams of up to 32 students from each of the schools were given a series of 8 science problems to solve with a practical model outcome. Schools involved were Glossop, Loxton, Mannum, Murray Bridge, Renmark, and Waikerie.
Examples of activities include an earthquake resistant tower, a model bridge to support a loaded carriage, designing an efficient electricity power system for a large city using multiple sources of generation, and building a model of an operational prosthetic hand. The student activities were supervised by Rotarians, and the models were given scores based upon performance capability.
The purpose of the Science and Engineering Challenge project is to show students some aspects of what engineers and scientists do, and so encourage students to at least consider choosing science, technology and mathematics subjects as a basis for possible later fulfilling careers in Science, Medicine, Technology, and Engineering enterprises in our national economy.
Local service clubs of Rotary and Lions provided significant sponsorship for this national project which is organised annually through the University of Newcastle. Each year the project involves about 24,000 students drawn from 800 schools.
Glossop High School students are the winners for this year’s S&E Challenge in the Riverland, and they will later take part in a State Competition against winning schools from other regions.

Ron & Sabine caught up with Murray Jarvis in Cairns last Thursday. Chris was away in Sth Aust.

After major surgery earlier in the year, Murray was looking extremely well, but now unable to drive, write and read for long.

They have recently moved house, and now share a place with daughter Meagen (a former RANZE student of ours)
