Max Anderson was the winner of the Rotary Melbourne Cup sweep, the prize was one thousand dollars. Max was delighted as it is his wife’s birthday soon and his property suffered a bit of flood damage in the recent downpour. For a number of years Rotary has conducted a sweep based on the result of the Melbourne Cup. It is one of the many ways that the club raises money to continue the benevolent and other works that we undertake. The support of the local community in this regard is appreciated and makes the operation of Rotary Club easier when people contribute so readily. Some $3,000 was raised from the sweep and the Club will probably run it again next year. On some occasions the prize has gone out of town but this year it landed here.
