Meeting No. 4903 - 15 June 2022

Presiding Officer: President Paul Denver
Speaker's Host: Monica Oliphant
Guest Speaker: Doug Sprig

Topic: The History and Contribution of Arkaroola Wilderness Sanctuary


As Rotarians we offer service to change lives, through valuing the fellowship, friendship and fun in our Club.  We recognise and acknowledge the diverse backgrounds and needs of our members and community, from the original inhabitants of the land we share, to the successive generations that followed.  Together, we have a collective impact.

President Paul welcomed members, guests and visiting Rotarians to the meeting.

Birthdays were celebrated this week by Bianka Borges (15/06), John Baulderstone (16/06), Grant King (17/06) and Sonya Weiser (19/06).

There was a long list of anniversaries this week:
  • Roscoe Shelton (26 years)
  • John Agnew  (22 years)
  • Anthony Brosnan  (11 years)
  • Anthony Gerard (11 years)
  • Brian Esselbach  (11 years plus 32 previous)
  • Krystyna Wielgosz (12 years)
  • Philip Hoffman  (21 years)
  • Madeleine Wiesner (13 years)
Congratulations to everyone on these significant milestones.

President Paul provided an update from Stephen Hains who, along with wife Jill,  are both recovering from their surgery (kidney transplant and kidney donation respectively).  Stephen reports that they are feeling better each day.  He also says that he has been overwhelmed with messages of support and is thankful that his children are taking turns to provide them both with support and care.

In Spotlight on Service this week, Robert Depold provided an update on the merger of the Southern/Springfield/Fullarton fellowship groups.  The merger has been supported by members and the Board, and is yet to be named.

Guest speaker, Doug Sprigg spoke passionately about the ecological, geological and mineral wealth of Arkaroola Wildlife Sanctuary and his familiy's role in protecting this unique area.
