Today is World Polio Day when we are reminded of the devastating impact that this disease can have on children. It’s a day when we raise funds and awareness so that more children don’t experience the paralyzing effects of polio. To keep protecting children everywhere, we need your help.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Today was an important and special event for the Rotary Club of Whyalla- Meeting No 3410 the 23-24 Changeover.  Where we moved from IMAGINE Rotary to CREATE HOPE in the WORLD.
  Incoming Secretary Larisa White Emceed the day, Rotarian Ben Johnston acknowledge country/  Raffles were won by Mellissa Zubrinich, Lesley  Hartup, Jane Owens, Ben Johnston, and Brendon Jackson. 
 
President Brian Herd inducted President-Elect Mic Russo.  Mic went on to introduce his board for the incoming year.  Larisa White - Secretary; Keith Sichler - treasurer; Brian Herd - Immediate Past President and Rotarian Benjamin Johnston - there was also Vinnie Russo in the photo and i am sure he will keep the incoming board in check.
 
 
 
Well-known Whyalla identity Steve Storic visited us this week to give us an update on his new venture following the Snapper Fishing Ban introduced in November 2019 for three years.  Steve formerly operated a charter fishing business but was forced to close when the ban was introduced. Steve, being the resilient and enterprising person he is, changed his focus from fishing charters to Boat Tours and is now catering for families rather than sports fishers.
 
He is working in partnership with Cuttys Tours to introduce new and innovative tourism experiences involving catering for people with disabilities. The Whyalla Boat Tours business is a much more affordable business to run as it does not carry the overheads of his former charter business.
 
Giving the vote of thanks is Rotarian Michele Sellars
Tuesday night's Speaker was Ms Ebonie Winston,
