President James welcomed all with Rotary Grace and sweeps for Melbourne Cup Day
were organised by chief bookie David Pyke.
President James reminded the club the AGM is next week, and we wished Frank Fuller and
Norma Gray all the best in their hospital visits.
Paul Murray on behalf of the club wished our exchange student Irene a happy 18th birthday!

  A roll call of Melbourne cup runners meant fines for most members of the club, but some connections were pretty tenuous!

David gave an update to the club on the drought relief funds for our district.
$290,000 has been organised through the national farmers federation and RAWCS and a
district drought relief committee has been formed.
The dispersal of the funds is governed by strict protocols.
A voucher system has been developed.
Clubs can "adopt" local towns and areas if they want to.
The committee is keen for the funds to be spent in the smaller towns of the area.
Application forms have been sent to all districts.
