Meeting 3461 Report

Community Engagement through food was the theme of International Australian Chef Mark Best the guest speaker at the Rotary Club of Murray Bridge Dinner last night. Mark was recently engaged by Regional Development Australia and held very successful industry workshops involving chefs at Mypolonga and in Berri. Mark was introduced to the Club by his mother Murray Bridge Rotarian Jacquie Best. Mark went to Murray Bridge High School where his home economics teacher Roxanne Rowland still works. What an interesting story he has and great achievements to be at the top of the tree in his industry. His philosophy to educate people about how food is produced, and how to cook it, connected with the audience present and I'm sure is the secret to his success. His role in this was to help explore new ideas and make people aware, keeping the Regions alive and moving forward using local produce. 300 industry people including 57 chefs people paid $185 per head in an outdoor setting to learn about his journey. Things like cooking Thai Larb, a street snack in Thailand, using carp. Treatment of the carp is a new learning process. Our River now has over 3 million ton biomass of protein, an abundant protein source we don't use to its full economic potential. Bush Pea Man is an example of the importance of using bees and other pollinators in the landscape. The buffalo industry at Mypolonga has developed a range of products, milk, meat, cheese, value adding to the herd. Goolwa Pippis are very popular particularly in the Sydney markets. Native peppers, wattle seeds, native hibiscus and many other native plants are being used and techniques developed. An example is wattle seed on fresh Coorong mullet with salt bush deep fried, so simple yet so good. The Monarto Indigenous Program incorporating MBHS Ngarrindjeri students from MBHS and the Monarto Zoo incorporates growing and cooking techniques. Rio Vista Olives and Aussie Apricots at Mypolonga are also leaders along with development of new hero products like Smyrna Figs which are wasp pollinated and Quinces. Look up Mark Best on Facebook and the Internet, its a great story and we were very privileged to hear it at Rotary.

Thank you for being a member of Rotary! Did you know that The Rotary Foundation is making a difference by funding projects around the world and in your own community? These projects are made possible when our members donate to any of our Annual Fund designations, and we need your support.

Every day, Rotary members respond to challenges big and small, emerging and ongoing. And when members like you participate through service or with a donation to our Foundation, we make an even bigger impact.

What can a donation to The Rotary Foundation accomplish? 
Help refugees. Rotary supports refugees around the world, providing humanitarian aid to people affected by the war in Ukraine, helping new arrivals in South Korea integrate into society, and giving shelter to families fleeing conflict in Syria.

Provide clean water. Rotary clubs are working together and with local communities on projects such as constructing wells in rural Ethiopia and supporting peace by providing clean water in Papua New Guinea.
Grow local economies. In the United States, Rotary members are working with adults with developmental disabilities on a vocational training project and with people on the Navajo Nation to install solar lights.

Prevent and treat disease. Rotary clubs are promoting healthy communities by helping with COVID-19 vaccination efforts in Italy, by working to reduce the incidence of malaria in Zambia, and by continuing to focus on ending polio.
Please donate online or send your contribution by mail to The Rotary Foundation’s Annual Fund-SHARE or one of our Annual Fund's areas of focus. Your gift will support projects like these and make Doing Good in the World possible.

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.
