Tree Planting at Geoff Walker Reserve

On Saturday 25th July 2020, 14 members of Victor Harbor Rotary attended at the Geoff Walker Reserve, Joy Street, Encounter Bay and planted over 300 trees, shrubs and native grasses to supplement the plantings that members have planted over the past three years.  Most of the earlier plantings have progressed well. Lee, from City of Victor Harbor spoke of the work our club has carried out and it is most appreciated.  Members will be asked during the year to water the new plants.  This project is one of many small community projects that the club has carried out. Report by Brian Liddy, Project Coordinator.

Members Drive Patients Thru Medi Ride Scheme

Members of Rotary Victor Harbor have signed up to help transport patients from their homes to hospitals and other medical appointments in a City of Victor Harbor Council Scheme. This service is run jointly between Southern Communities Transport Scheme and Medi Ride who combine to help those in need attend important medical appointments when they have no other means of getting there by themselves.

Club member Neville Willis has been driving people for over 20 years, and recently 3 new members have joined him, they are President Marty Alsford, President Elect Julie Irwin, and Rotarian Peter Morison.

They are seen here standing by the bus in which they all successfully drove to pass the required driving examination, the Volunteer Driver Assessment Test.
