Magillican’s Island, RYPEN, CROE-4 and ”The Project that Enthuses” leads to an overfull program for a one hour breakfast meeting. Jim Bond from Stradbroke Scouts briefed us on clothing, sustenance and safety issues in preparation for the Club’s kayaking expedition to Magillican’s Island somewhere out on the Port River next Sunday. GPS directions for this destination however are still proving elusive. The Club has been successful in recruiting four great students for this year’s Rotary (Australia) Youth Program of Enrichment or RYPEN at Woodhouse in late April and the Unley RC is keen to support two. The two M’s representing MS are Michael Capoccia and Melissa Carlesso and we look forward to them joining us for breakfast next Tuesday. The Campbelltown RC plans to go bush in October for their CROE-4 outback bash and, after considerable concern about how to avoid soggy sandwiches, members accepted Campbelltown’s invitation for our Club to gastronomically prepare and launch the expedition to the outback. Time limited our discussions, but it became clear that another requirement for our international program is that it lends itself to the Club being able to successfully compete for a RI matching grant. The issue of the ideal project having the scope to include a hands-on/working party component was also aired.

Regards Ian

Speaking at the Rotary Club Luncheon on Friday, Brigadier-General S. Price Weir said he believed the original "diggers," the name which was eventually applied to all Australian troops, were the men in the 10th Battalion from Broken Hill, commanded by Colonel Jacob. Many of them were miners, and their services were greatly in request during the early days on Gallipoli for digging trenches. He as commanding officer of the 10th Battalion was often asked for a loan of some of the diggers and the term appeared to spread until it included all Australian troops.

High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying by every Rotarian of their occupation as an opportunity to serve society. The application of the ideal service by every Rotarian to their personal, business and community life. The advancement of international understanding, goodwill and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional people united in the ideal of service.

The Four Way Test of the things we think, say or do: Is it the truth? Is it Fair to all concerned? Will it build goodwill and better friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
