Club News
Fellow Rotarians and visitors.
 
The World Coronavirus pandemic has put a dampener on any mass gatherings. It would be irresponsible of our Club not to do its bit to help slow the transmission of the virus.
 
In response, the Bang Tail Muster parade and the Henley-On-Todd regatta will not go ahead in 2020, however, we look forward to running both events in 2021.
 

Changes to meetings.

We've stopped meeting face-to-face and, like many, have discovered the advantages and frustrations of Web Conferencing, green screens and virtual cameras.
Surprisingly, perhaps, we've had good attendances to online meetings and we've had Rotarians and guests joining in from interstate and from other countries.
A unique advantage is the ability to join a meeting wherever one is - wherever, that is, there is phone reception, internet service and connectivity. Even in places such as Antarctica and the space station.
There will be a District web conference online later this year - keep watching the District 9500 website for further information. The link is https://rotary9500.org/
 
For any advice, there is a dedicated COVID-19 national hotline number - 1800 020 080.
 
The link below is for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's Coronacast episodes - each of around 10 minutes duration - which are very informative and dedicated to answering your questions about the infection.:

Rotary’s 2017-18 International President, Australia’s Ian Riseley, wants a trachoma-free Australia by 2021, Rotary’s 100th year in Australia. The World Health Organisation has a global goal to eliminate trachoma by 2020. Trachoma is an infectious eye disease that can be prevented with good hygiene practices. But it is still present in remote Aboriginal communities and can lead to permanent blindness. The work of the Australian Government, the Fred Hollows Foundation and Indigenous Eye Health to treat trachoma infections has seen rates in affected communities reduced substantially. But now, we need to ensure that hygiene practices and the community environments are improved to completely eliminate the disease.
