The guest speaker at our meeting on May 5 was television personality Graeme Goodings, who until recently was the news presenter at Channel 7 in Adelaide.

Graeme recounted his life experiences, culminating in the formation of his own media company.

For many years Graeme has acted as the MC for our annual Carols by the Lake, and it was for this and his support for the local community in general that the club awarded him a Paul Harris Fellowship at the meeting.
