Sharing Club’s Presidents’ changeover events has been an utter joy and privilege. Thank you those who have invited the District Governor group. Apologies to the Clubs where we were not able to accept invitations. Some evenings there were as many as 5 changeovers held and only three of us available to attend.

Last month, a polio outbreak was confirmed in Papua New Guinea, which had been  certified as polio-free in 2000, along with the rest of the World Health Organisation's Western Pacific Region.  

There has been one confirmed polio case in the Lufa Mountain settlement in Lae city, which was first detected in late April.  

The 2018 Bacchus Marsh Rotary Art Show was our 48th annual exhibition and once again attracted  artists from not only Victoria, but New South Wales, South Australia and Tasmania. 

Noel Halford, Club Service Director, had the idea for the Project after he arranged a Skype meeting with the then CEO of Boab Health services based on Broome servicing the Kimberley region.
