DG's July Report

Paul and I would like to thank Clubs for the warm welcome extended to us during our visit to Changeovers over the last month. I felt very proud to hear of all the amazing achievements of Clubs over the past year where once again Rotarians came together to take action and create positive lasting change in communities near and far.  It was a privilege to induct new members to the family of Rotary and to assist in the presentation of Paul Harris Fellows to Rotarians who exemplify our motto of service above self.
I look forward to participating in Club and District activities over the coming months including the Rotary Club of Glenelg’s Cold Plunge on Sunday August 5 where Paul and I will be taking a quick dip in the chilly waters at Glenelg Beach to raise funds for organisations who support the homeless
The DG Newsletter is a wonderful opportunity to share the great work of Rotarians and Rotary Clubs across our District and beyond.  I look forward to seeing your stories and photos in upcoming issues as we all strive to ‘Be the Inspiration’.
Promoting Rotary!
A big thank you to Rotarian Jeff Neale (RC Campbelltown) and Paradise Motors who have once again generously supplied a Rotary branded vehicle to the District through the District Governor for the 2018-2019 Rotary year.  The Mazda CX-5 is a beautiful canvas for the People of Action and End Polio Now messages that will be promoting Rotary during our travels to Club and District meetings and events.

Meet Our New Club

The Rotary Clubs of Noarlunga & Noarlunga East have joined forces in the southern suburbs to create a new club known as the Rotary Club of Morphett Vale.
President Dini Whyte presided over the first meeting and the photos below show some of those present.


The daughter of Campbelltown charter member, the late Theo Inkenharg, Tieneke, had a fall in her Independent living unit and was transferred to the Flinders Medical Centre with a suspected hip injury.
After a period of time she was assessed that she could not return to Independent Living and be transferred to next stage of care at Clayton Homes, Magill SA.
Tieneke's cousin Helen Malseed whom has power of attorney and lives in Sydney, was finding it difficult coordinating Tieneke's relocation.
A phone call to Rotarian Dave "WACKA" Richards from the RC of Campbelltown (SA) as to whether he was able to assist with the relocation of Tieneke.
Dave being the Rotarian that he is, on the phone to fellow Rotarians Benny Bosman and Brian Stevens whom ably came to the rescue with a van and trailer supplied by 
Paradise Motors and arrange to relocate Tieneke's required furniture and other items to make her comfortable in her permanent "new home".

It is exciting news that Sam Camporeale, from the Rotary Club of Mitcham in our District, has taken on the role of Regional Rotary Foundation Co-ordinator (RRFC) from 1 July 2018 through until 30 June 2021.
Sam works together with a team of 4 other Rotarians to provide ongoing support and information related to the Rotary Foundation to District Governors and District Rotary Foundation Chairs and Committees across 16 Districts. The territory includes Western Australia, South Australia, much of Victoria, Tasmania, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.
RRFCs serve as a key resource for all Rotary Foundation activities, including grants, fundraising, PolioPlus, and Rotary Peace Centres. They encourage Rotarians to continue to support PolioPlus, Rotary’s highest program priority; support clubs and districts in their fundraising, especially contributions to Rotary’s Annual Fund; teach clubs and districts about Rotary grants; and conduct regional Rotary Foundation seminars to help educate about Foundation opportunities and impact. RRFCs work closely with their RI Director, The Rotary Foundation Trustees, Rotary coordinators (RCs), Rotary public image coordinators (RPICs), endowment/major gifts advisers (E/MGAs), and End Polio Now zone coordinators (EPNZCs) in their regions.


The Rotary Club of Robinvale-Euston will celebrate their 60th Anniversary with a dinner at The Euston Club on Saturday September 1st 2018 6 for 6.30pm.


A formal Invitation will follow and all Past District Governor's and any interested Rotarians are welcome to join us in celebrating this milestone.

Exchange Student Raises Funds

Rotarian Brad & Helen Silby of the Rotary Club of Campbelltown are currently hosting Rotary Exchange Student Jenna Saxe of Pennsylvania USA. 
Jenna was keen to do a fund raiser for the Cage Event which was for Refugees through her school, and needed to Fund Raise $100.00.
On kicking around ideas we came up with a 3 Course luncheon for  in our backyard on Sunday 1st July, the places to be auctioned off.  Anything over $100 to go to the RFDS.
Jenna put in many hours to make the event happen,  with preparation, some cooking, served all meals and was host for the day. 
A most enjoyable day was had by the 9 attendees and ourselves.
As such she raised $250 over and above the $100 for the Cage Event.   On Friday 6th of July 2018, Jenna attended the RFDS  HQ and Hanger at the Adelaide Airport precinct where she was given a tour of the operation,  and then presented a cheque for $250.00.
