As the days draw closer to the end of my Presidential year, it is with a touch of sadness that I write my last newsletter
To all the great members of the Rotary Club of Murray Bridge, I say a huge THANK-YOU for all your help and support you have given the Club and myself throughout the past year. Without your support this club would not be as successful as it is, I consider our Club to be one of the best in our District. It has been an honour and pleasure to have been your President for 2023-2024.
I would also take this opportunity to thank Merilyn for all her support throughout the past year, reminding me of things that needed to be done, for her editing of my weekly newsletter and for being my Home Secretary, thank you.
I’d also like to congratulate Jenny and the new Board and wish them all the best next year.
That’s it from me for this year. See you all Saturday night at the Changeover.
Cheers Gordon

Bread Tags For Wheelchairs

One of our recycling projects is the collection of bread tags.
The story below was published on Facebook and demonstrates the difference we can make.
We have now collected 13 tonnes of bread tags for recycling. That's more than the weight of two African elephant bulls!
This photo was taken at Addo, an elephant reserve in the Eastern Cape in South Africa, close to where we have provided some of our wheelchairs.
Can't believe we have shifted a couple of elephants over the last 5 years!


The We Care - Cally Campout was a great success with Rotarians showing what volunteering is all about. Support for the event was amazing with a large community contingent attending on an extremely cold evening.
Our members lifted to the need to support others and the teams working to provide food to the attendees never failed to deliver. The serving teams worked tirelessly as the numbers seemed to be never ending but they delivered without complaint. Those cooking continued to keep the bain marie full.
It was a lesson to us all as to the generosity of our business community and in particular Australian Portable Camps who ensured the evening was a success.
APC's support ensured that attendees were able to enjoy a free evening of fun, food and keep warm around the numerous fire troughs whilst enjoying the musical entertainment.
Well done to all Rotarians and Australian Portable Camps as this event epitomises the concept of helping others.
I was proud to be associated with the teams at Callington.

Cochlear Information from June Meeting

Our recent dinner speaker was Carolyn Kilpatrick who spoke about her journey as a hearing impaired person.
For the first 21 years of life was undiagnosed and found education difficult. Once diagnosed and learing to lip read, Carolyn has become an achiever.
Eventually she became a candidate for a Cochlear Implant and this was life changeing. The implant connects directly to the brain and provides crystal clear sound. In recent times Carolyn has been fitted with a second implant and now hears in "stereo".
The Australian invention now provides help for people across the world.
Chair Malcolm Blight opened the meeting to questions which were many and varied.
Carolyn is an active Lions Member and will soon assume the role of District Governor
