President's Message


It has been an interesting few weeks. It was our intention at last week’s meeting to induct Sadia Najaf, however this has been postponed to Monday 19th.

Our guest speaker last Monday was Simon Bryan, who with Wendy had just completed a 5000km trip to Broken Hill, down to Clare Valley and back to Mildura, Wagga Wagga and home – a very interesting journey.


Last Thursday, Global Money Exchange collected over 300 kg of ‘scrap’ currency. I am sure that this will return us between $6,000 and $10,000.

On Monday next, our guest speaker will be Jasmine Chen, our student going to the Science Forum in Canberra.


Could you please advise of any extra numbers attending so that the required seating arrangements can be made.


I will be away in Perth the following week and the meeting will be in the capable hands of Peter McIntyre.


Yours in Rotary


Rotarians Against Malaria

Dear RAM representatives and friends of RAM,

As was discussed at the recent RAM Conference, RAM supports a new project to raise funds for expanded human trials of the promising malaria vaccine being developed at the Institute for Glycomics at Griffith University. RC’s Southport and Broadbeach D9640 have registered (Rotary Australia Benevolent Society) RABS Project 16 / 2016-2017. This project which can be found on the RAWCS website will accept tax deductable donations to build sufficient funds for the next phase of trials to proceed. Attached is a flyer with additional information about the project so please include this initiative in any discussions or presentations that you are making on behalf of RAM.

Kind regards, Dave.

David Pearson
National Manager: Rotarians Against Malaria.
Director: Rotary Australia World Community Service Ltd.


Guest Speaker Report

Simon and Wendy Bryan reported on a recent Caravan Trip as our guest speaker.
First part of the trip was Sydney to Broken Hill via Dubbo and Wilcannia then on to the Clare Valley in South Australia, via Mildura.

While cycling round Dubgo Zoo they heard an adult Hippo and a young one conversing with some very loud noises.

There is a prominent Rotary sign board in Cobar outside the visitor centre.

Stayed at Wilcannia for two nights and visited White Cliffs (opal mining town).

The Darling river was running quite high and strong through Wilcannia.

The weather in Broken hill was a bit wet but still plenty to see and do, Art Galleries, Mining Museums and the Miners Memorial. They were preparing for the Broken Heel Festival which they do once a year to celebrate the movie 'Priscilla Queen of the Desert'. Out at Silverton they have the famous Mad Max Museum. On a lookout near Broken Hill are the famous Statues in the Desert, well worth a visit at sundown.

Then on down to Mildura, stopping on the way at Wentworth where two rivers, the Darling and the Murray meet. Hoped to get into Mungo National Park but was too wet.

On to the Clare Valley which has some really lovely scenery with the Canola fields and wheat fields making a yello and green patchwork. Winery visits are obligatory and they visited Taylors Wines and went to Annie’s Lane.

On the way back home through Mildura they were able to visit Mungo National Park and the 'Walls of China'.

They saw plenty of wildlife, especially Emu's as the climate had been quite wet to allow a good breeding season.
Wagga was the last stop on the way home, the caravan park was very near the Murrumbidgee River which was also running very high.

The 4-Way Test
1. Is it the TRUTH?
2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?"

The Object Of Rotary

The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:
FIRST. The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
SECOND. High ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to serve society;
THIRD. The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business, and community life;
FOURTH. The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.
