Our club currently has 12 attending the Area 12 Centenary Dinner on Wed. 21st. April at the Adelaide Oval with ten on our table and two on the Rotaract Table which is a great result.
The Community Services Committee is planning its first meeting on Tuesday 27th. April over dinner at the Astor Hotel in the city. This is a large team and a couple of non-club members, Alex and Maria have been invited to join the evening and observe the proceedings.
Richard Jarrett has informed me that our club will be sponsoring CBC year 9 student, Hussain Ali Mohammadi at this year’s RYPEN Camp
The club's social evening on Friday 30th. April at the Wholly Belly on Magill Road has already received 8 responses and I hope that you can join us, as it promises to be a fun night.
The next Board Meeting is on Thursday 23rd April and will again be at my place on Beulah Rd. commencing at 8.30 am.
Our meeting last week was attended by a small number who enjoyed an excellent breakfast and hopefully my presentation on the history of radio in SA. This week is Coffee Conversation at the White Picket Fence.
Yesterday, Saturday John W and myself met Santhny from the Rotaract Club to explore the idea of assisting them with their annual Quiz Night which hopefully will be held in August.
