A message from Namuun Batsaikhan

Immediate Past President of the Rotary Club of Gerege in Mongolia

Dear All,
For those who may not be familiar with me, I am Namuun, the Immediate Past President of the Rotary Club of Gerege in Mongolia.
As we approach the conclusion of this incredibly rewarding and exciting project, I would like to express my deepest gratitude on behalf of our club and the beneficiaries to our fellow Australian Rotarians. I'm thrilled to report that everything inside the container has arrived in excellent condition, complete with some delightful surprises.
It was evident that every person involved in this project invested a great deal of time and care into packing the container. From meticulously taping and cataloging items to even including a printed manual for the playground, the dedication and love poured into this endeavor were truly heartwarming. I would also like to extend my appreciation to Troy, who, as a non-Rotarian, has generously offered assistance to the best of his abilities and experience. Most notably, Mr. Jack Reddin and Jill Reddin deserve special recognition for serving as the driving force and masterminds behind this entire project. Without their invaluable contributions, none of this would have been possible.
Our Interact Club at School 115 also played a significant role by assisting in the unloading process, for which I am immensely thankful. The unpacking operation took approximately 5-6 hours, and their contribution was invaluable. I would also like to extend my gratitude to the Veloo Foundation for their exceptional cooperation and for graciously providing lunch for our members and the children from the Interact Club.
Additionally, I would like to share some valuable lessons we've learned from this project, which may prove useful for our five clubs in future endeavors:
1. When packing, it's essential to clearly indicate the quantity of EACH item inside the container. We encountered difficulties when identifying materials during customs clearance
2. 2. Utilizing a logistics company has proven to be highly efficient, as it ensured the safe transport of our cargo without any mishaps.
Thank you all once again for your outstanding support and dedication to this project. Your generosity and commitment have made a significant difference, and we look forward to future collaborations and opportunities to serve our communities together.

Warm regards,
Immediate Past President Rotary Club of Gerege Mongolia

A message from Miriam - the Veloo Foundation

Dear Jack,
First of all, I would like to say that we are overwhelmed by your generosity and effort you have put in loading the container with the much needed donation items that will be used at our kindergarten, library, summer camp, sewing center and community outreach. As we have unloaded and organized all donation items, we have specific use for every bit of the items which I will share in detail in this email.
We have just unloaded the container this Saturday with the support from the Rotarians and Veloo Foundation Volunteers. On Saturday, the goal was to unload, sort and organize the donations where the following works were done;

To Jack and fellow Rotarians

Debbie Scerri - Who Am I?

Debbie Scerri, our newest member made her Who am I presentation to the Rotary Club of Murray Bridge on Tuesday evening. This presentation is made from time to time by members who are new or by older members who have had changes to help members become better aquainted. Debbie has been in Murray Bridge for a little over a year and joined Rotary to enable her to put back into the community. She was brought up in the Marino Rocks/Seacliff area of Adelaide in a family of seven and went to Dover Gardens High School. She considers family to be a high priority and her family has been involved in calisthenics and drag racing. She enjoys interacting with the community and you will see her around in our many projects and bbq's. She has already become a valued member of our Club. Kevin Prosser actively chaired the meeting and has been her mentor in Rotary. John Scarvelis
