                          Dear fellow Rotarians and friends of Rotary,
                         The District 9510 Conference is happening very soon! I can’t believe how quickly it has
                         arrived. The Conference Committee has put in a massive effort to plan an exciting,
                         informative and fun Conference at Westminster. You still have time to register if you
                         want to come along and catch up with Rotary friends.
        Lyn and I have continued visiting clubs within our District travelling to Peterborough, Broken Hill and then
        touching base with the 6 clubs in Sunraysia. There were also many great projects happening which we
        have been fortunate to attend. These include International Women’s Day breakfast, The Longest Lunch
        in Mildura, Murray Bridge Golf Day, the Goolwa Art and Photographic Exhibition (open until Monday 5th
        April), Rotaract Club of Adelaide Uni 11th Birthday, and the 10-year celebration of Clare’s Rotary Shed.
        There were other events we could not make due to commitments including Campbelltown’s Classics in
        the Park and Onkaparinga’s Rotary Lego Expo. It is great that many events are resuming after a tough 12
        months with COVID restrictions. Congratulations to these clubs.  Lyn and I thank you for giving us the
        opportunity to be a part of your events.

                                                           The Longest Lunch has been a project of Mildura
                                                           Deakin for the past 20 years. This annual event has
                                                           taken place at several locations over the years
                                                           including the riverbank and railway station. Its home
                                                           is now along the vine covered walkway outside the
                                                           Mildura Grand Hotel heading up Langtree Avenue
                                                           and caters for 150 guests. Last year it was cancelled
                                                           with 2 days’ notice due to COVID-19 so this year was
                                                           well patronised and enjoyed by all including Lyn and
                                                           myself. Entertainment was provided by talented AG
                                                           Gary Klippel.
                                                           Thanks Mildura Deakin, a great day. If you want to see
