Annual District Conference

Club members at Conference Dinner

This year’s District Conference was held from March 23 to March 26 in Geelong at the Pier Conference Centre. This annual gathering of Rotarians from all over our vast District provides an opportunity to renew acquaintances as well as enjoy an excellent program of guest speakers; both thought provoking, inspiring, and entertaining.

Seven members of our Club attended and enjoyed some great fellowship at several functions they arranged in addition to the formal program.

Ros's-Induction

At our meeting on April 4, President-elect Tony inducted Ros De Garis as a member of our Club.

Ros is well known to long term members, as for many years she and husband Andrew were stalwarts of the Rotaract Club of Largs Bay.  Ros joined Rotary in Canberra when business interests took her there, and upon her return to Adelaide she expressed an interest in joining our Club.

Her nomination, proposed by Jean Mailey, was unanimously accepted by members. Ros will be an invaluable member, with her wealth of Rotary knowledge and her keen interest in serving the community.  A hearty welcome Ros!

Outstanding guest speaker

Arman-and-Juliann The guest speaker at our meeting on December 1 was  an outstanding young man, Arman Abrahimzadeh.  Arman was recently named as Young South Australian of the Year, and is a nominee for Young Australian of the Year.

He talked of the tragedy which struck his family, when his father murdered his mother, after she and her children had suffered years of  domestic violence at his hands.

Arman was determined to assist other people who are/were victims of domestic violence, and to this end he co-founded The Zahra Foundation, named in honour of his mother. We  wish him well in his endeavours.
