An evening at the Uraidla Hotel

A Lovely Evening at the Uraidla Hotel!

Our recent vocational visit to the Uraidla Hotel, Brewery and Bakery was a great successs.  It was organised by Colin Fraser and Robert Koehne to hear from Colin’s daughter, Julie Peter, speaking of her journey in transforming the Crafers Hotel, the Uraidla Hotel and soon to do same for the Nairne Hotel. 
 
                 
 
  
 
      
 
It is wonderful that Julie and Ed Peter have such a strong and clear vision from which our Adelaide Hills have greatly benefitted. It was fascinating to hear Julie’s story and her proud mother and father’s faces as she told it!

Rotary Celebrates 45 years of service to the community

45 Years of Service to the Community!

 
What a wonderful celebration it was when we hosted current and past members to a special anniversary party on the 10th of September.
 
There was quite a buzz in the room as old friends and partners renewed old acquaintances and reminisced about some of the many of the clubs achievements and milestones over nearly half a century.
 
Two charter members were able to attend and it was great to hear from Past President Peter Frazer who was a founding member.  Also present was John Stoddard, one of the stalwart, continuing members of the club he helped create back in 1974.
 
                          
Peter Frazer shared memories of the early days and John Norris was our amiable MC                            
 
Among those who also shared anecdotes were:
 
          
                        Ian Cogdell                               and David Wotton.

I was pleased that Barry Klose, the only remaining Charter member of RC of Onkaparinga, his wife Bronwen and Past Predident Keith Broderick were present to share memories of when Stirling sponsored their club in 1978.

President Russell Camens and Kevin Wilson of the Onkaparing club and Past President Shiralee Judge of Mt Barker represented the club who sponsored us in 1974.
 
Our other closest neighbouring club, Blakiston, was represented by President John Rowley.
 
The specially commissioned anniversary cake reflected the colours in the current Rotary Theme of “Rotary connects the world”.  Sue from Azure De Lis Cakes in Mount Barker took the vibrant colours from the Logo to present a very attractive cake which was white chocolate and fresh raspberry filling.
 
Our two Charter members , John Stoddard and Peter Frazer, ably assisted by President Susanne Marie, cut the cake after a rousing Happy Birthday was sung.
