At the official DG Cluster visit with Calder, Martin and Di Taurins did what they’ve always done, champion the fight against MS. Whilst their incredible donation of $36,000 to Australian Rotary Health was an incredible highlight, it was such an honour to see their work recognised with Royce Abbey awards. A truly inspiring couple, congratulations again Martin and Di!

A wonderful long lunch was had at Riddell’s Creek Hotel, the first in 10 years for the Rotary clubs of Daylesford, Gisborne, Kyneton, Macedon Ranges and Woodend. It was terrific to listen to a diverse panel of Rotarians talk about their Rotary experiences and what’s possible for the organisation.
We packed 100 food packs, which were gratefully received by the local food bank in Gisborne. 
President of Macedon Ranges, Sally Armstrong acknowledged her Rotary mentor Sam Turner with a special DG's Mentoring Recognition. Sally said that Sam's passion for helping others and making a difference has set a great example to her and countless others for how we too can contribute to the great work that Rotary does. 
If you’ve never been to Riddell’s Creek Hotel for a feed, do yourself a favour, lunch tasted like it came straight from your grandma’s kitchen! A huge thank-you to everyone who joined us from across the District, to Presidents Terri Oprean, Lynette Robinson, John Damrow, Sally Armstrong and Charles Bender, and of course to the one and only AG Khurram Khan!
