Club News
For the first time in its 40+-year history, the AGFR tournament flag is, this week, standing sentinel and gently flying over the Alice Springs golf course.
Around 90 golfing Rotarians and 30 non-golfing partners  from around Australia have come to the Red Centre for a week of golf, fellowship and service above self, generously supporting Rotary, the John Hood Memorial Scholarship, Palliative Care NT, Central Australia and the Western Desert Dialysis service.
As the old saying goes "If you don't like the weather, move to Central Australia". The forecast for this week is perfect for golf and just being outdoors.
Check out, also, the photos on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/rotaryclubofalicesprings/
 
In 2020, the 42nd AGFR tournament will be hosted by the Highton Rotary Club and held on the 13th Beach Golf Course, Barwon Heads, Victoria between April 19th to the 24th.

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.
