From President Chris Gascoine:
Last Tuesday morning we followed on from last week’s Club Assembly discussion on the likely issues facing the proposed merger of both Adelaide based Rotary Districts into one new district, 9510, led by PP Kirsty, who gave us a preview of a presentation to the new district steering committee re Consultation with Younger Rotarians (under 40s).
Some significant points in Kirsty’s presentation were:
- ways to minimise the additional workload on those involved in the running of the district and its committees and
- to limit the amount of travel created by the sheer geographical size of the new district (SA’s land mass is 52% larger than that of France)
We will support Kirsty all the way in her efforts in bringing her ideas to the attention of the steering committee.

Last Week’s Magill Sunrise Market
Rotary Magill Sunrise holds an art and craft market in the carpark of the Campbelltown Library on the 2nd Sunday of the month from 8am – 12 noon. Our last market will be this Sunday 8th July. We did OK in spite of a cold and gloomy morning.
Check us out on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Magill-Sunrise-Market-135928306495529
Our new bookstall at the next market has been delayed will be operational in August, so still keep rummaging through the bookshelves and video draws and donate something to sell.
