What a change, shorts one day, winter woolies the next, the rain however has been very good.
Good to see members putting up their hand to help President Elect Jenny Alexander complete her board for next year. We’ll done.
Unfortunately, Mobilong needed to postpone their Christmas party due to the weather, however we look forward to celebrating with them in January.
Thursday night we had our Presidents meeting at Bridgewater Inn, as always, a good information night, hearing what the other clubs are doing and exchange ideas.
With the year’s end fast approaching we look forward to our Christmas party to see what Santa might bring us or not.
Just a couple of reminders:
Don’t forget your food items for Foodbank on Tuesday night,
and most importantly, are your calendar slips returned? Calendar money and slips need to be returned to Jacquie Best before the end of the year.
See you there Tuesday night.

Shelterbox & Putt Putt

Three Murraylands Rotary Clubs Murray Bridge, Mobilong, and Tailem Bend joined together in a game of Putt putt golf at the Avoca Dell Caravan Park at Eastside Murray Bridge resulting in raising money for two Shelter Boxes valued at $2,000 for overseas disaster use with thanks to a $1000 donation from Laurence and Kim Crack the Park's owners. It was a great fun night in perfect spring weather the frogs were croacking in the bilabong and the birds were singing in between the laughter of the Rotarians and their partners. The Rotary Club of Mobilong won the shield and Rotary Action enabled more support for those less fortunate than ourselves. Also a special thanks to Jedz Pizza of Murray Bridge for the donation of Pizza. John Scarvelis
