Rotary helps out near and far
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.
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.
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.
