My hope is for a safe and enjoyable festive season for all Rotarians and your families. Attached is our Christmas edition of the District Governor’s Newsletter. Once again, Editor Lynne Layng has done a great job in putting together all the information about Club Projects. We still need to publicise our new members, so could Club Secretaries please let Lynne know about them.
There is more great news from Clubs, like Kidman Park and Henley Beach celebrating a birthday milestone for Norm Lewis, 100 years on Christmas Eve. There is an extraordinary achievement by Modbury Club and once again The Toy Boys are active by distributing more than 150 toys to several local charities.
Port Pirie’s longest-serving member has just notched up 57 years, and Clare has established a strong partnership to Local Councils to facilitate programs that will benefit the local community.
The District Conference in Geelong is creeping up on us – have you registered yet?  The link is in the Newsletter. Please join us!
Christmas is the time for giving and this was acutely brought home to me last Saturday. I spent the evening at the invitation of  Sharka Byrne from the Mawson Lakes Club with her and about 20 volunteers serving drinks and meals to more than 140 homeless people at the Salvation Army headquarters in Pirie Street. It was a very humbling experience to be a part of this selfless work that is a regular event at this venue.  Download Newsletter Click Here
