NOW, LET'S TALK
 
A MESSAGE FROM DISTRICT GOVERNOR JUDY HUTCHERSON
 
 

Where in the District is Gov. Judy??

 
This Rotary year is really gearing up! We have been to Del Rio and their wonderful 4th of July Rodeo. They were so hospitable to us. When I say, us, I mean John and I and in this case, my daughter and granddaughter. We had a wonderful time.
 
We installed the incoming President of the San Angelo club, Janet Karcher. I know they will have a wonderful year. When we left San Angelo, we headed to Lubbock to support a fellow Governor, Susan Brints at her installation. You should see what those clubs in Lubbock do for their Food Bank! They have a 2500 tree apple orchard that they have planted and maintain for the Food Bank. WOW!!
 
We have our first Official visit to the Rotary Club of Fair Oaks Ranch on August 10. Then Pleasanton on August 11. I can’t wait to see what those clubs are up to for the coming year.
 
I would encourage Presidents to contact me and set up your Official Visit this year. You will be hearing from me soon about dates. Be looking for those new members to induct.
 
I will be on vacation for 2 weeks, leaving on Aug. 12. BUT I am only an email away.
 
I know everyone is working hard for Rotary and your community this year!

OCTOBER 1
First Annual Show'n'Shine Car Display & Swap Meet
Group wall post by Bree Kate
Come along on the 9th of October and join the Rotary Club of the Kinglake Ranges in supporting the Ellimatta Youth Inc, our local youth centre.

As a person still classified as youth (at least, I think I am...), I have seen first and second hand how much of a lingering effect the fires have had on the mental health of our youth.

As many of you would know, Ellimatta was set up after the fires to help engage the young people of our little community in a positive place and in services as simple as homework help, or counseling.

For many clubs in our district, we are within a couple of hours. Why not make a day trip out of it?! Do the 4km walk with us, donning your End Polio Now shirts of course, to raise awareness of another wonderful cause, explore our beautiful little haven while the waterfalls are still running, and grab a bite at one of our local eateries.

Hope to see you then,

Bree, on behalf of the Rotary Club of the Kinglake Ranges. :)
