Hi Rotary friends
Things have been very busy with DG visits and I still have a couple to do.  Once that is complete I look forward to just visiting clubs and enjoying some fellowship. 
David and I have been very lucky to be invited to some very happy occasions: RC Largs Bay’s 50th Anniversary; Brian Condon 60th Anniversary (RC Port Pirie); RC Port Lincoln’s 70th Anniversary.  It was especially wonderful to be invited to the Service Clubs Association of SA (SCASA) Community Service Awards Lunch, where I accepted three awards - two for Port Lincoln’s Eyre Peninsula Mental Health Project and one for RC Adelaide for the Science and Engineering Challenge.  Next we went off to Government House with the National Youth Exchange Students.  At the end of that week we took the Rotary Car to the Adelaide Pride March with the Rotaractors. 
Looking to the future – this week we sent out the information asking for expressions of interest for the position of District Governor Nominee Designate (2022-2023).  I would like to encourage past Presidents to apply for this wonderful opportunity.  I can only talk of my own journey through this process and I have to say I have been supported in every step of the way.  You will have the opportunity to attend training each year.  My own has been in Darwin and then in Tasmania, known as GETS training (Governor Elect Training) where all Australian and New Zealand DGNs and DGEs meet. 
In the DGE year you travel to America, where you meet the District Governors for your year from all over the World – this is an awesome experience.  If anyone would like to know more about this please call me. 
I would also like to encourage any Past District Governor to apply.  In District 9510 you will not have been a District Governor so you are entitled to apply – I might even apply myself ...
Speak soon,
Jane Owens
Governor,  District 9500 - 2019/20

The Trust is seeking support from Rotary clubs to consider funding a student or donating to the Trust.  Click here for more information or text/email/call Adelaide Rotary Club Past President, John Seaton on 0419 804 840 or  for more information as to how to provide a scholarship.
This is an initiative of the Adelaide Rotary International Service Team to assist the children of an underprivileged community as they face another harsh winter.  The club is challenging every member to donate three kilograms of second hand children's winter clothes.
Who will you be assisting with this project?
The Romani people, or Roma, are the third largest ethnic group in Serbia, one of the countries with the most significant populations of Roma people in Europe at some 450,000-600,000 or 8.23% of population. The majority of Romani people are Christian with a Muslim minority. A large number of Serbian Roma people live in slums, and so-called "cardboard cities". Many Roma children never go to school.
Why do they need your help?
Due to a long history of discrimination, human rights reporting mechanisms have consistently drawn attention to the treatment of the Romani people in Serbia. The United Nations have reported persistent discrimination and social exclusion as a major concern.
Winter, from December to February, is quite cold. Some periods are cloudy or foggy, with temperatures around freezing - zero degrees Celsius.  In other periods, there are cold winds of Arctic or Russian origin, which break out violently in the country, and are followed by intense frosts, when cold air settles on the ground. In these situations , the night temperature can drop to  minus twenty degrees Celsius or colder.
