Our Guest Speaker tonight is District Governor Elect, Peter Schaefer who is going to give us the “lowdown” on who he is and what has shaped his life so far. Peter is a member of The Rotary Club of Alice Springs. Should be most interesting!
Our annual ANZAC Day event was down on numbers again this year. An ageing population has much to do with dwindling numbers, as many of those who marched in previous years have passed away.
The weather, and our location in the gardens were other contributing factor, as we’re ‘hidden’ behind the Salvation Army Truck and sausage sizzle tent. Never-the-less, we were there, much to the thanks of those who visited our marquee for a cuppa and refreshments, and a place to rest their weary bones.
Thanks to our members who turned up early to help set up on a rather chilly morning, those who helped throughout the day and those who stayed to assist with packing up. Team work!
Each year, we get together with our “mother” club, the Rotary Club of Unley, who Chartered our club on 2 October, 1950. The two clubs take turns to host, and this year, they will be hosting us.
On Tuesday, May 30, we are to meet at Damien on Fisher, the restaurant which is located in the Living Choice complex at 123 Fisher Street, Fullarton at 6.00pm for 6.30pm.
Cost is $25.00 per person for a one course meal, payable on arrival. Drinks extra. Please mark this in your diary now. Final numbers are be advised to the restaurant by 25th May.
