WORLD POLIO DAY
World Polio Day is celebrated this Monday 24th October. Our Board has decided that at our meeting the following day, the proceeds from the fines session will be given to the Polio appeal and topped up to a reasonable donation. So bring your money with you and give generously to this wonderful cause.
The Board has decided to encourage members to participate in a Lake Fun Run which district Rotary is organising to celebrate the centenary of Rotary Foundation. Further details to follow when available.
The following is an extract from the Monday Oct 3rd Daily Advertiser :
Mother Nature has selected only a few events over the past few months to grace with perfect sunshine – Gears and Beers was the latest.
Almost 1100 riders registered and countless others attended the festival at the Victory Memorial Gardens after.
People travelled from as far as New Zealand to pedal through Riverina countryside.
“It’s been really, really good,” organising committee chairman Phillip McIntosh said.
“Everyone came out because it was a really sunny day.”
Mr McIntosh said participants provided positive feedback, especially the 250 people that rode the 130 kilometres.
“The conditions out there were challenging,” he said.
“There was water, there was mud but they just ate it.
“I’m blown away in all honesty.”
