VOCATIONAL VISIT WAGGA MENS SHED
 
President Geoff opened with rotary grace and a toast to the queen and the people of Australia,
and welcomed our guests Kat Jenson and David Butler.
 
Geoff introduced  our own Rick Priest from WAGGA MENS SHED
 
 
Rick priest gave us a rundown on the operation and activities of the menus  shed, and the
Recovery from their recent fire. He highlighted the huge amount of assistance received
from the local community to rebuild their facility.
 
 
 
A lunch and tour of the facilities followed
 

 
 
 
Wollundry members were given a virtual tour  on Tuesday of the proposed Wagga to Ladysmith Rail Trail.  Lisa Glastenbury and Sam Brunskill presented the proposed Wagga Rail Trail with a very informative and professional slide show and talk.  
The Wagga Rail Trail will be a 20km sealed, off-road trail connecting Wagga Wagga CBD with the village of Ladysmith.  Following a gentle gradient through rural countryside, the trail will pass Governor’s Hill and Brunslea Park, Forest Hill and the RAAF Base, before crossing the picturesque Kyeamba Creek floodplain via historic rail bridges.

It will be a safe, traffic free trail for passive recreation that everyone can enjoy.  Starting at the Visitor Information Centre, the trail will mostly follow the disused Wagga to Tumbarumba railway line. Access to the trail will also be available at Equex, with links to the Kooringal Rd and Riverside cycle ways.

The Trail will end at the Ladysmith Railway Station track head, with its unique display of heritage railway trikes.  A management committee of landowners, trail users and community services will manage and maintain the trail for the benefit of the whole community.

 
 
 
 

 
 
 
President Geoff Hamilton invited longtime Wollundry supporter Tim McMullen to Tuesdays meeting.  To make Tim feel welcomed, he was included in the clubs fine session.
 

 
 
The Riverina BMW Food and Wine Festival was another highly successful event for Wollundry Rotary.  
 
The weather on Friday morning was a bit scary.  However by Friday afternoon the turnaround came and Saturday was perfect.  The delay in setup meant Saturday was a long day for all the Rotarians and volunteers, nevertheless it was great to see the thousands of younger people, older people and families coming to enjoy the festival.  Click here to see a short slideshow.
