Joan Cullington of our club, together with her husband Geoff (of the Casterbridge Club) visited the Unley Rotary Club, Adelaide and Port Melbourne club.
At the Unley Club weekly meetings we have
interesting speakers on diverse subjects, and occasionally we visit actual
sites to enable fuller understanding and appreciation of the topic. We raise many thousands of dollars each year which is dispersed in
service to needy in our community and overseas. Our major fund-raising activity
is the Unley Rotary Thrift Shop at 130 Unley Road, Unley.
We contribute to international
programs such as Rotary's International's program to eradicate Polio
world-wide. We support programs such as Rotary Youth Exchanges, Vocational
Study Teams and many others. Opportunities exist for members of our club to
visit other countries and work as volunteers in the Rotary Australia World
Community Service projects and programs. An upcoming programme is to plant
trees as part of the Rotary International drive to plant over one million trees
this Rotary year. Joan later reported that they had just had a
