The Club was honoured to have the South Australian Attorney General, Vicki Chapman MP as our Guest Speaker on  April 23.  The Attorney spoke on the Judiciary and the rationale behind sentencing, a subject of public interest given the concern often expressed at what are perceived to be lenient sentences.

The meeting was attended by a number of special guests including one of our major sponsors, the Managing Director of Olga’s Fine Foods, Dr George Ujvary and his family.

Having served in several arms of the services over twenty two years David is well qualified for this role.

David provided an insightful overview of the geo-political situation in our region and the rationale behind the current program for re-equipping the Australian Navy. He concluded with an outline of the timetable for the construction of the various navy vessels at the Osborne Naval Shipyard, a facility he described as having world’s best practice.

Glenn with Chair Jean

On Tuesday, February 12 we were privileged to have Glenn Cooper AM  as our guest speaker. Glenn is Chairman of Coopers Brewery, one of the State’s iconic companies.

Glenn provided an interesting, at times humorous, account of the family history and their struggle to operate a family owned brewery in the face of fierce opposition and takeover bids by multi-national companies.

That their products now have strong sales interstate as well as locally bears testament to their success.
