Club News
Rotary volunteers helped out at the National Road Transport Hall of Fame (and Ghan Museum) Open Day.
It was a very fun day for families. It was a hot sunny day, but the grounds are really well shaded and pleasantly cool, making it very easy to spend and enjoy a whole day there.
 
An unxpected surprise was President Virginia Loy was awarded Central Australian of the Year (can we call her CAOTY?). Congratulations and well-deserved.
 
Train Driver Gary drove 500 children and adults (some on multiple rides) around the track, which circumnavigates the grounds of the Road Transport Hall of Fame.
 

Congratulations to President Virginia.
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.
