Zone 8 Virtual Conference
Last year, many of us took advantage of our lockdown situation and attended a very informative Rotary Conference from the comfort of our own room! AND IT IS ON AGAIN!!!!
The Rotary Zone 8 Australia New Zealand Pacific Islands Rotary Conference is on 11th to 12th of September. Yes, that is a little while away, but if it follows on from last years gangbuster, it is certainly worth putting in your diary right now. Bookings open on the 5th July.

Casey council announced last week that in the next two years, twelve playgrounds will be upgraded. Casey council is networked with RORP and will be co ordinating the progressive dismantling for DIK to ship overseas. Volunteers are welcome to assist RORP in dismantling and forwarding to DIK.

Quarantine Quandary
Extracted from Facebook and posted by Graham Johnstone
Not quite the travelling post we planned.       We have just had our 4th night in mandatory hotel quarantine in Alice Springs.
Sadly, Mark’s sister died in New Zealand. We went over there for a week via Sydney. We flew back via Brisbane on Sunday. Got dragged out of the line when we arrived in Alice, because we have been in Sydney.  
Unfortunately, both Sydney and Brisbane have now gone into lockdown. We got told we don’t have to do the whole 14 days quarantine. It started when we left Sydney, which was the 19th. So we get out on the 3rd. We still may have to do the two weeks because we came through Brisbane which went into lockdown later. Waiting for an answer on that. We both tested negative.
So locked in a hotel room it is....... We are allowed out for 25 minutes twice a day to walk in circles around a fenced area watched by a guard and a welfare person. Depending on how long we get we can do 2km!!!
Our room looks out on it so we can watch others going around and around. Also watching the cars drive in for testing. We get a phone call from a nurse to check on us every day. A knock at the door for very average meals…but we are not going hungry. We can get click and deliver from Woolies, so chocolate it is.  It could be worse, we haven’t decided what we will do when we get out.
