Ro­tary helps out near and far

Stanthorpe Border Post - - LIFE | SERVICES SCENE -

RO­TARY’S part­ner­ship with the Amiens His­tor­i­cal As­so­ci­a­tion re­sulted in a mem­o­rable com­mu­nity event at the open­ing of the Amiens Legacy Cen­tre on Re­mem­brance Day.

Ro­tar­i­ans were com­mit­tee mem­bers, builders, gar­den­ers, chair movers, car park at­ten­dants, per­form­ers, bar­be­cue providers and many other roles be­fore, dur­ing and af­ter the cer­e­mony.

It was a priv­i­lege to serve our lo­cal com­mu­nity at this event.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to the AHA on pro­duc­ing a won­der­ful legacy to those brave pioneer fam­i­lies.

World Po­lio Day

WORLD Po­lio Day was recog­nised by Ro­tary clubs around the world on Oc­to­ber 28 with many events and fundrais­ers.

For 35 years, Ro­tary has been chip­ping away at erad­i­cat­ing this dis­ease through a vac­ci­na­tion pro­gram world-wide.

The sad fact to this year’s story is that 22 cases of wild po­lio virus have been de­tected.

The road to erad­i­ca­tion has been longer and harder than ex­pected but we keep fight­ing.

South­ern Downs Ro­tar­i­ans and friends trav­elled to Warwick or Ten­ter­field to at­tend the launch of “Bo­hemian Rhap­sody”, the new re­lease movie that tells the amaz­ing story of the rock band “Queen” and their lead singer Freddy Mercury.

Ev­ery cent of these fundrais­ing movie re­leases goes to the Ro­tary End Po­lio Now pro­gram.

Aldi bar­bie

THANKS to the Aldi man­age­ment who asked our club to pro­vide a Bun­nings style bar­be­cue for their re-open­ing day.

This be­came a fun day for us all.

It was a chance to chat among our­selves and with all the lo­cals as they checked out the new store.

This was def­i­nitely more than just a bar­be­cue – there was a great sense of com­mu­nity as well.

Stu­dents shine

RO­TARY’S an­nual recog­ni­tion of stu­dent achieve­ment has cul­mi­nated in Com­mu­nity Awards pre­sented to Te­nille Abra­ham and Ali­cia Paech at Stan­thorpe State High School and to Franco Pozze­bon, who was awarded the Ju­nior Craft Award at St Joseph’s School for his blan­ket box.

Thank you to Wil­shire & Co CRT and Mitre 10 for their spon­sor­ship of the Ju­nior Craft Awards for 2018.
