Who Am I

by Leanne Walding
This weeks Rotary Club of Murray Bridge Dinner Meeting featured a Who Am I Segment with Rotarian Leanne Walding telling us about her photography business Leanne Walding Photography. Leanne started her photography business in 2015 for portraits, family shoots and weddings. Leanne has entered in five Art Exhibitions since 2015 with prize winners and sales in all bar one. Photographing ruins and animals is what Leanne likes to do in her spare. She dabbles in experimental photography, long exposure techniques, uses a variety of devices to produce interesting effects. She is married to Dean Walding who is Plant Manager of Thomas Foods in Murray Bridge. They have two boys Brodie and Darcy who like their father tinker with cars and drag racing. They also conduct an Annual Memorial Fishing Competition to catch Mulloway between the Murray Mouth and Salt Creek in February and are members of the Bear Rock Rodders who put on a free event every year at Palmer to raise money for the local CFS and the Primary School. Leanne has also been a member of the Australian National Kennel Council since 1995 and has successfully not only showed her dogs in Conformation Classes and taking dogs through to their Australian Champion titles but also in Obedience where she not only trained her dogs but was also a training coach.
In Rotary she has taken on the role of producing the Club's Bulletin and doing a fine job. You can read it on our website each week. She has also supplied photos for the Club's very popular Calender Project for the past 2 years.

Interact Murray Bridge High School

Interact has been running at the Murray Bridge High School for some time and allows the students to do something for the community of their own choice with guidance from Rotarians.
The numbers had been slowly decreasing but our last meeting on the Thursday just gone showed a great improvement with numbers doubled from previous meetings.
The students ranging from year 8 to year 12 have chosen Teen Challenge and will be collecting food items from fellow students and teachers. At our last meeting the students covered and decorated boxes that will placed throughout the school to collect items in. It was good to see the students eager to be involved and hopefully this will continue to grow throughout the year.
Meetings are held on the first Thursday of every month.

Rotary World News


Rotary Youth Exchange

Probably our best-known program is our Youth Exchange program.

Each year thousands of young people worldwide are given an opportunity to experience the cultures and accomplishments of people in other countries.

During an exchange, students grow considerably in self-confidence, tolerance and self-reliance.

The exchange provides a unique opportunity for young Australians to experience at first hand the many cultures of a different country, a new way of life and in some instances another language.

Often, the friendships made will be life long and important in achieving the aims of the exchange - the building of goodwill and understanding between countries, promoting peace.
