This year's guest speaker was Megan McLoughlin, SA’s Local Hero, who told her story of hope and inspiration.
 
“Quite simply, Megan McLoughlin says she is filled with hope each time she reflects on the greatest gift she has ever received - life. The 37-year-old Tanunda woman is a double transplant recipient following medical conditions which left her legally blind. Her desire to live a full and rewarding life was strengthened after she was named the 2019 South Australian Local Hero for her advocacy work towards organ donation”
 
The Governor’s wife, Mrs Lan Le, is patron of the Women in Rotary SA Chapter and asked to be photographed with the students and club members.
 
 
On Monday 25th February, the Rotary Club of Mount Barker presented the successful applicants with their allocation from the 2019 Community Grants funds.

Operation Flinders Mission Statement:
 
“Operation Flinders Foundation is to provide young men and women who have been identified as being at risk, with demanding outdoor challenges and support, to help them develop their personal attitudes and values of self esteem, motivation, team work and responsibility so they may grow as valued members of the community.”
 
These young men and women are taken to a remote location in the Flinders Ranges, trekking 100kms over 8 days, where they are confronted with physical, emotional and psychological challenges in an isolated and unfamiliar environment.
