13th January 2020 - Meeting 3025 
The meeting was opened by Chairman President Steve with all members welcomed with a special mention of honorary member Jan Meldrum.
PP Patsy Johnson reminded members to collect stamps and provided a summary of businesses/ organisations that have been supporting the project. 
PP Bruce Eastick told of a visitor he had at Eldercare who had stayed with him and Dawn many years ago on an exchange with one of his sons displaying the extent that the spirit of Rotary extends.  PP Lance Hatcher then elaborated, explaining the visitor had presented at the home address of Bruce and was kindly redirect by the daughter in-law of Bob Hinderwell who now lives next door.
PP Lance Hatcher bought reminded members at the AGM in November the club voted to disband the Gawler and District Special Events committee which managed the Caravan Camping and Outdoor Swapmeet.  Members were informed a decision was required as which committee would take over the management of the event as this needs to start now for the early May date event. Much discussion was held with most of those previously on the Gawler and District Special Events committee volunteering to continue with the organisation of the event.  Michael Jacob volunteered to manage the online requirements.
Sergeant PP Barry Steward held a sergeants session with members present contributing to the night with stories of their Christmas days/holidays.
President Steve put it to the members present that he wanted discussion held regarding what the club could do to assist with those affected by the bush fires across our country, but more specifically those in South Australia.  Members elected to discuss as a club and not within committees.
Lengthy discussion was held between all members ranging from;
  • what club funds should be designated to bush fire appeal
  • where to place the funds
  • what events could be held/planned to raise funds
  • collaborating with the Rotary Club of Gawler Light
  • arranging vocational visits to support the areas impacted by the bushfires.
  • contacting Gawler Council to organise a co-ordinated approach from council and community groups
Detailed notes were taken by the Board for further discussion and action.
Meeting closed with committee meeting deferred to next month.
In recognition of our Christmas gifts, the club received a Certificate of Appreciation from the  Northern Adelaide Domestic Violence Service
From Rotary Down Under Dec- Jan 2019-20 
There is no experience quite like attending the RI Convention. Discover the true spirit of aloha and Rotary with your family, friends and fellow Rotarians in Honolulu in June. It is the perfect setting for the entire family of Rotary to celebrate and connect.
There are 2 types of people who enjoy Hawaii – those who have never been and those who have had those Hawaiian moments etched into their memories already. The convention is the best place to find and share your aloha, which you will soon discover is much more than a greeting. Just as Rotary is a way of life for Rotarians – one that focuses on living in harmony, being patient, treating everyone with respect, and sharing joy with your family and friends.
The host committee has arranged some fabulous events. This includes Hawaiian culture, lunch boat trip, a 2 hour tour that ill feature spectacular views of Diamond Head, Waikiki and the Kahalu Gold Coast. You can learn to play the ukulele, take part in Hula dancing and much more. You will also have the opportunity to enjoy a full range of island hospitality events, from backyard picnics to multi-course family meals.
It will be the most family-friendly convention in Rotary history. This will also be a time to celebrate Rotary’s historical ties to the UN. June will mark the 75th anniversary of the signing of the UN Charter. On the day before the4 start of the convention Rotary and the UN will host our 5th joint event of 2019/20, one focused on environmental sustainability.
ROTARY CONNECTS THE WORLD in no better way than at the Rotary Convention. Bring your family to meet our family.
See you there.
Mark Daniel Maloney, President Rotary International
I write to complement new vision for Rotary as listed in your latest issue of Rotary Down Under. I moved to Newcastle NSW recently and felt the need to join a service club again. I was a member of Quota* International in Coffs Harbour for 18 years but moved for family reasons. The club had strict protocols which would not change. We started a new Quota club in the area accepting casual regulations and enjoyed our area of service in the new environment. I was fortunate to find the Rotary Club of Salamander for a breakfast club meeting that operated with the new guidelines.
* Quota International, Inc. is an international service organization that provides basic needs to women, children, the deaf, and hard of hearing in communities around the world. Quota International's world service projects are aligned with the United Nation's Millennium Development Goals
