* In our first June meeting the District Governor (David Egan) and his wife (Chris) joined us for the evening. David spoke firstly about his Rotary journey and his passion for effective leadership. He raised the difficulties encountered in maintaining membership numbers in service organisations in recent years. Fortunately there has been a small overall increase this year in Rotary membership numbers and we were commended on the addition of our 4 new members. His wife spoke of her role in being a Friend of Rotary and work with young people and mental health.
* Our final meeting before changeover we welcomed Greg May as our guest speaker. He spoke of his recent visit to Gallipoli for the ANZAC Dawn service. A number of photographs illustrated the difficulty of the terrain the ANZACs encountered and he spoke in some detail of the futility of the campaign.
* In other news, the Rotary Mural has now been completed by Stuart Hoerisch and is ready to be put in place. I’m sure we’re all looking forward to another addition to Kapunda’s murals.
* Planning and activity continues with the organisation of the 60th Celebration Dinner and the Kidman Rotary Art Show
