Rotarian John Scarvelis outlined this years activities of the Murraylands Multicultural Network, a partnership project with the Australian Migrant Resource Centre and the Rural City of Murray Bridge at the Rotary Dinner Meeting on Tuesday. New settlers are being welcomed into Murray Bridge and the Murraylands with the opportunities of employment. Services and infrastructure improvement will benefit all and the regional areas are crucial to Australia's future going forward. Activities have included education, training, social, events linking with the community like the Yuntu-Walun Multicultural Festival at Sturt Reserve in March and the All Cultures Fest at the Town Hall. Employment opportunities will continue to increase after the completion of the Thomas Foods factory is completed.
Dear All at Rotary Club of Murray Bridge,
Greetings from St Jude’s!
Your support of Dorcas’s academic scholarship this year is truly appreciated and will always be appreciated by Dorcas and her family.
Our Standard 6 students have had yet another successful year. As we are almost at the end of 2021 year, we wanted to share with you some of the adventures of our Standard 6 students are having at St Jude’s.
Please see a short video by clicking here.
As you can see, Dorcas and her peers are thriving in a supportive environment that enables them to make the most of their free, quality education.
None of this would be possible without supporters like yourself. Together we are fighting poverty through education. We hope you enjoy the video, please feel free to share it with your family and friends.
Kind regards,

"Safari 2021" - Report

The Rotary "Safari" held this last weekend was attended by 18 members, partners and friends.
Venue was the Riverbend Caravan Park at Renmark with many being ble to camp right on the river in beautiful surroundings.
It was great to have the company of Bronwyn and Andrew Heard from Mobilong along with Andrew and Bozena Mills. Andrew is a past member of our club. In addition, on Sunday afternoon our past president Graham & Judith Coventry were able to join us for happy hour and dinnner.
Each evening we gathered around the firepit on the river bank. One of the photos shows Ron's contribution to the fire.
Whilst there were no formal programme, many of us gathered for lunch at the Riverland Wine Centre at Lyrup for lunch. This was a recommendation from Simon and it did not dissapoint.
Saturday evening was again the firepit but with quizmaster Gordon conducting a fiercly competitive quiz. Happy hour tended to morph into dinner so there was plenty of food to bring home. Browyn prepared a fabulous jam roly poly to share with us all. Normally cooked over the coal, it was this time cooked over the gas. Well done Bronwyn. Thanks to Sue Frazer who provided a celebration cake for one of our members forthcoming birthday.
Sunday was a time for fellowship followed by a visit to the Woolshed Brewery for a relaxing time overlooking the river.
Happy Hours (plural) were a great time for members to interact and enjoy each others company with the consensus being "lets do it again next year".
Thanks to all who were part of the getaway, you made it a great event.

End Polio Now

In 1985 Rotary launched PolioPlus to immunize every child in the world against polio. Working with our partners and members of the global health community, together we will end polio.
Through the science of vaccines, Rotary & partners have saved nearly 19 million children from becoming paralyzed by polio. Learn more about our work to End Polio Now and how you can get involved: https://on.rotary.org/3eqtrrr

Rotary has been working to eradicate polio for more than 35 years, and we’ve made incredible progress in the fight to rid the world of it forever.

As a founding partner of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, we've helped to reduced polio cases by more than 99.9 percent.

It’s crucial to eradicate polio from the last two countries where it remains endemic and to keep other countries polio-free.

If all eradication efforts stopped today, within 10 years, polio could paralyze as many as 200,000 children each year.

What is polio?

Polio, or poliomyelitis, is a paralyzing and potentially deadly infectious disease that most commonly affects children under the age of 5. The virus spreads from person to person, typically through contaminated water. It can then attack the nervous system.
