The Rotary Foundation’s 100th anniversary Rotary Fellowships Month June is designated as “Rotary Fellowships Month” by the RI Board to recognize the importance of international fellowship and good will among Rotarians with similar recreational interests, vocations, and health and medical issue-oriented interests, to promote increased participation in fellowships and increase understanding of this program.
There are currently some 64 Rotary Fellowships across an incredibly wide span including Caravanning, Cricket, Cruising, Cycling, Golf, Lawyers, Music, Photography, Recreational Vehicles, Travel and Hosting, Wine, Yachting.
Steam Rally Echuca Moama:
With only 4 members available for roster duty in the Camp Kitchen, (Graeme looking after ROADEC at Rotary Showcase) we are extremely grateful to family & friends who assisted over the weekend. A big thank you goes to Jenny Ingram, Debbie & Eric Bish, the Lucas family of Robyn, Roger, Adrienne, Chris & Nicholas and Graeme & Tim Watson. Without you the Camp Kitchen would not have been the success it was this year.
Next year Chris is planning on setting up a gyros so that we might serve souvlaki on pitta bread.
Bus Shed: Sec. Heather has now submitted the relevant paper work to DELWP for their consideration. Between the bus and the murals, this has become a rather heavy workload. At least now Heather has the names of contact people who are willing to assist.
Visit to RC Kyabram: On Wednesday 14th June, Sec. Heather & Treas. Noel visited the RC Kyabram to discuss some of the problems relating to small clubs. Ky members were interested in fund raising activities. It is hoped that the new Rotary year will see the renewal of the longstanding association enjoyed by our two clubs.
FARSE: Planning continues. A donation has been received from Peter Walsh MLA. Following advise from RC Kyabram members, Heather has entered into discussions with the Field & Game Association. Hopefully they may provide an exhibit relating to gun safety.
