Venue Map
After Sargeant Rob McLennan opened the meeting, President Yvette was delighted to invite Helen Angove and David Rowe to the podium.
The Club bestowed on Helen and her son David Hemer the "David Rowe Community Service" Award for their "16 years of service on the Sunday night Bread Run servicing the Moore Street Centre and Ronald McDonald House". The weekly commitment of picking up freshly baked but leftover bread and cakes from Baker's Delight in North Adelaide Shopping Centre (in sacks cleaned weekly by Helen) and then delivered to people in need was a big commitment for the family. Helen was delighted to receive a cheque of $500 to share with David for their efforts, and when President Yvette dropped the plaques off to Helen, she proudly placed hers near Bob's Member of the Order of Australia (AM) award and photo.

9.         ROMAC Letter for Club Presidents                              
This  time of the year many clubs are allocating the balance of their annual fundraising and ROMAC needs and deserves your financial support. The more funds we can secure, the more desperate children in the Oceania region we can help.
Remember ROMAC it is not just another District supported medical program, it is run totally by Rotarian volunteers, is Rotary International approved and sanctioned and unlike other programs is proudly able to display the Rotary International logo as part of its own logo. Have a look at the attachment to see how your club can help.
