Bulletin No 1/17-18 (3-7-2017)

Hi reader,

After some skimpy Bulletins last year, this one is comparatively large.

I did a little but of updating of the website (contact details etc) but still need articles and images from outgoing directors about their projects completed or undertaken in the 2016-17 year to bring it up to date.

Rotaract Club of UC are now going to send us updates of their projects to add to our site. I urge you to read their semester one update - those guys are doing a great job.

The big news this week was Changeover and the donations the club announced (and made) on the night. For those who missed it, you can listen to the Tony's interview about the donations on the ABC here. (His interview starts at roughly 1:32:00).

See you tonight - ED
