Christmas & New Year greetings from Lisa Baier
Lisa was our Rotary exchange student from Leverkusen, Germany.
She came to Australia in July 2005 and left in 2007. She lived with Margaret Blake for 6 months and then with the McIntires for the last 6 months. She attended Concordia College.
She has been back to see us 3 times and Margaret spent 3 weeks with her in Passau and Leverkusen in 2013, staying with her and her mother and stepfather and also meeting with her paternal grand parents and step grandmother. Margaret feels privileged to have been Lisa's host mother.
Lisa's mother and stepfather are both doctors and she is a very smart young lady, completing her first exams as a lawyer 6 months earlier than the rest of her group.
Lisa's letter to Margaret is included below in "Read more".

Greg Campbell - the sale of S.Kidman & Co.
Mr Greg Campbell, MD of the S.Kidman and Co and employee of the company for 24 years, addressed a joint meeting of the RC of Hyde Park and the RC of Adelaide Parks at the Hyde Park Tavern on Wednesday 15 Feb17. He discussed the recent drawn out and often-times frustrating sale of Australia’s biggest land holder and third largest beef producer. 54 Rotarians, partners and friends were privileged to hear the inside information and incites from a man who clearly is proud of a remarkable achievement.
Guest Speaker - Professor Tanya Monro is Deputy Vice Chancellor Research and Innovation and an ARC Georgina Sweet Laureate Fellow at the University of South Australia.
Unley Business Breakfast - Feb17
The Unley Business Breakfast held on 14th February 2017 was a very enjoyable event with approximately 75 people attending to hear two speakers talking on the NBN and Artificial Intelligence and the future of the internet.
Mr Chris Gregory spoke about the progress of the NBN and the changes in the way consumers will connect to the internet. For example: - through the Foxtel cable or fiber to the node.
Chris mentioned that the runout of NBN was happening quicker than originally expected due to the use of the Foxtel cable and other methods in many suburbs around Australia, including use of satellites in the country areas.
Dr John Flackett spoke on Artificial Intelligence and the future of the internet. He took us for a trip into the future discussing how the new world will look with the increased internet speed. It was exciting and quite daunting, especially for people not born in the last 40 years.
The Rotary crew did an excellent job welcoming people at the door, setting up before the event and cleaning up afterwards. Thanks to everyone involved for their contribution.

Welcome to The Rotary Club of Hyde Park Geoff
Unley Tour Downunder Gourmet Gala event - King William Road
Once again the RCHP was invited to be a part of the Unley Gourmet Gala on King William Road, to supply a sausage sizzle, low priced soft drinks and water to the public. It has become an important fund raiser for the Club so the event was declared a Club meeting.
The fool hardy arrived with the gear to set up at about 1.30pm with the temperature hovering around the mid 30’s. They included Neville Highett, Pres. Mike, Andrew Sullivan, Jim Handley and Gerry Greenway.
The event was open to the public at about 4pm and we began the cooking of 350 snags, 5 kg of onions, 25 Loaves of bread and hundreds of soft drinks. The first shift of cooks/servers included Alan Moss, Peter Griffith, Colleen, Roger Thomas and all of the set up gang.
The crowd of about 20,000 streamed by and as darkness fell shift 2 was added to by Geoff Hudson and Geoff Pitcher. All went well and the event proved to be a good social event and advert for Rotary.
Things came to a halt around 9.30pm and we packed everything up and loaded the trailer. Unfortunately we had to wait till about 10.30 to get the trailer out of the event.
The end result after costs was about $850 profit for the Club to put towards its charitable community service program.
A great effort by all involved, very tiring but rewarding also.
