At which point the incumbent Editor dusts off the quill in readiness for the next garage sale and then remembers that he has yet to put the finishing touches to the History of the Rotary Club of Modbury.
At our regular dinner meeting on 14/11/17, we had an opportunity to meet the two students Imogen and Anthea, who will be sponsored by the Rotary Club of Modbury Golden Grove under two different Rotary Youth Programs. They both have introduced themselves and briefly mentioned about their programs that they are participating. We are sure these students will be great representatives on behalf of the Club.
Imogen is the Club’s Long Term International Youth Exchange Student, who will be travelling to Denmark for 12 months next year. Anthea, has been selected and sponsored by the Club to attend the National Youth Science Forum to be held for the first time in Brisbane in January 2018.

At our dinner meeting on 17th October Raelene Watts spoke to the Club about her newly formed charity, Sharing with Compassion, which she has created to raise funds for educating children in Uganda.
So far money has been raised to build a new girls dormitory at a secondary school in a very poor area on the outskirts of Kampala and now the charity is focusing on building a new primary school. This charity is tax deductible and every cent raised goes directly to the projects as it is run totally by dedicated volunteers.
Raelene showed us photos of the work that has been achieved and some of the children who are benefiting from this project.
At the dinner meeting on 3rd October Anne from Fauna Rescue of South Australia Inc. was a very informative guest speaker. She brought along two Koalas to assist in her very enjoyable presentation.
Fauna Rescue of SA is South Australia’s largest wildlife organisation caring for our sick, injured and orphaned wildlife. They are a volunteer, non-profit organisation and their members care for sick, injured and orphaned wildlife in their own homes.
