President's Pen
John, Julie, Katey, John W and myself have just attended the first conference of the new District 9510 at Westminster School which featured some excellent guest speakers. Whilst all were interesting, some of the standout presentations in terms of content were, Dr Jessie Harman, Rotary International President's Representative (Wendouree Breakfast Club/Ballarat), Dr Melanie Bagg, CEO of the National Youth Science Forum, John George, AllKids based in Cambodia (St Peters Club) Dr James Mueke, Australian of the Year 2020, Dr Mark Moore, Interplast, Mark Balla, Toilet Warrior concentrated in India, Anthony Hart, Invigor Wellbeing, Isobel Marshall, 2021 SA Young Australian of the Year and co-founder of Taboo, Chris Herrmann, My Senior Gap Year (Rotary Club of Mill Point, Perth) and Sam Camporeale, Regional Rotary Foundation Coordinator, (Mitcham Club).
John W and I kept looking at each other enthusiastically as the speakers’ topics sounded so appealing for our club to consider. If only we had an open cheque book.
It was great to see John Campbell on the Australian Rotary Health stand looking fit despite currently receiving medical treatment.
Next year the District 9510 Conference will be in the Barossa and the DGE is Jeff Neale, a member of Campbelltown. This was just my fourth conference and if you have never attended one, I strongly recommend attending as it confirms how important being a member of Rotary is.
Hopefully you have received an email for John W announcing that the Club's Changeover Dinner is planned for Thursday 1st July at the Sage Hotel and that you can attend this important evening.
I was excited to hear that Santhny will be the incoming President of the Adelaide City Rotaract Club, taking over from current President Bernie.
Last Sunday afternoon, new member Paul, Linda, Sally and myself attended the Adelaide Parks movie fundraiser at the Regal and the movie, The Courier, was an absolute ripper. Both couples were lucky enough to win a raffle prize as well.
This coming Wednesday evening our club has ten members attending the Area 12 Centenary Anniversary Dinner at the Adelaide Oval which should be fun and I am assuming that the Adelaide Club will zoom the dinner meeting. This meeting replaces our regular Thursday morning breakfast meeting.
Eleven people have confirmed that they wish to attend the club's social pizza evening at the Wholly Belly on Friday 30th. April and I hope that you can join us.
We have just heard great news from Bunnings - Mile End. They are commencing 7 day per week sausage sizzles and we are back on their roster and have been given Tuesday 25th May as our first BBQ.
District Assembly 9510
I would like to encourage you to register for this year’s District Assembly which will be held at Prince Alfred College on Sunday 2nd May.
The District Assembly is for all Rotarians who want to learn new ideas and best practices – especially incoming club leaders who are looking to strengthen their skill set(s).  At this event, you can learn more about the different programs of Rotary, explore ways to become more involved at club and/or district level, and meet members from other Rotary clubs.
Who should attend?
  • Club Presidents and Presidents Elect to work on transition planning for the coming Rotary year.
  • Incoming and prospective club board members to learn what Rotary has to offer beyond the club level.
  • Newer members to attend specific sessions for orientation purposes.
  • Any Rotarian or Rotaractor who wants to know more about our great organisation! (This event is open to ALL Rotarians and Rotaractors and entry is free)
I will be presenting Rotary International’s theme and objectives for the coming year together with my plans and vision for the district. In addition, there will be an excellent selection of break-out sessions on a wide range of topics that are sure to be of interest you
Registration is essential, you will find further information and registration details at:
I look forward to seeing you on the day.
Kind Regards,
Jeff Neale  (Jenny)

The Four Way Test

The Four Way Test

Of the things we think, say or do:

  1. Is it the Truth?
  2. Is it Fair to all concerned?
  3. Will it build Goodwill and better Friendships?
  4. Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?


United in the spirit of Service we value truth, fairness and friendship; and we welcome the opportunity that Rotary gives us to contribute our talents and resources in support of others.
