WEEK OF AUGUST 29th


SOCIAL NIGHT IN WAGGA WAGGA




On the 5th Monday for months that have five Mondays we organise a social evening away from our club.  On 29th August a number of members and partners journeyed  to Wagga Wagga for dinner and ten pin bowling.

The Riverina Hotel was booked and we had an excellent dinner of above-average pub food.  We then went around the corner to the ten pin bowling alley near the Forum 6 Cinema.

We had 15 players in three groups of 5.  The overall winner was Alex Thompson, who won the bowling pin trophy.  Some of us have never played this game before and it showed!  The evening was a good way to forget about Rotary matters and just enjoy our own company.

Here are some photos of the evening:

ROTARY NEWS


 

1. MANGOES IN CANBERRA




Mangoes in Canberra RC of Woden Daybreak


[NB: Just a note to those outside Canberra area. The mangos are being picked up from Canberra so you might need to make some arrangements. It seems a good deal to me, either way.]



Mangoes are coming!









The end of winter is definitely in sight when the word 'mangoes' appears in a subject line!


Woden Daybreak Rotary's mango fundraiser is on again and the details are above.


We have been in touch with the farmers and are very happy to report that the mango crop looks good this year.


This year the fundraiser supports two wonderful Rotary programs: the eradication of polio and Operation Cleft.:
