MARCH 2016

01/03/2016 Ms Kate Warren on Indigenous Health.  Kate has an excellent track record as a presenter and this presentation will be a "hum dinger."
This was an excellent presentation.   It was interesting that Indigenous child mortality has dropped markedly but the "gap" has not closed much because non-Indigenous children are benefiting more from the latest medical developments.

Ian and Bonnie who are also Scholarship recipients along with Lee Martinez will be our guests.  So that's four guests.  The Rotary Club of Whyalla in partnership with the University of South Australia made the Scholarships available.

EASTER- Good Friday March 25th- Sunday March 27th. Catering Van will be at Whyalla Snapper Competition.  Lots of fabulous donuts, hot dogs, drinks, chips.  Volunteers are always welcome and there  is great fellowship and fun. Rotary is focused upon community development,  maternal and child health, literacy, conflict resolution, disease prevention and research all over the World. The funds raised from our fabulous donuts cover all of this in Whyalla and far beyond.  We are much more than just donuts. 
And we did have a fabulous time.  $4250 was raised for Rotary projects near and far.
