Monday, 5 December, saw the beginning of a new tree cycle for the club under the supervision of Wayne Brown from ‘Environments by Design’. With the help of Year 7 girls from Wilderness School, teachers Judy and Rory, with Rex, John P, Vic, Chris Neville and Gavan from the club, some 6000 tubes were seeded. When ready, the trees will be widely circulated to areas such as the Pinery and Sampson Flat bushfire sites. It was a very successful propagation morning and was finished off with one of our traditional club BBQs for the workers. Well done Rex in organising the event!

We Played Croquet

23 November saw us at the North Adelaide Croquet Club for a ‘friendly’ against the Prospect Rotary Club. We won the night by 13 hoops and there was talk of making this a regular event. The Croquet Club put on a delightful 2 course meal and with the club having full bar facilities and a very nice clubhouse, it was a very enjoyable evening. Thanks to Kent for his organisation.

While Australia is currently Polio free, it remains only one plane trip away from us. 2010 saw cases of Polio worldwide reduced to 1,352, a 99% reduction since starting!  Read more…
