This year sees the return of the very successful training courses sponsored by the Rotary Club of Barossa District in the many facets of Caravan Safety. Whether it is a trailer, a campervan or your mobile castle, Rotary Club President Brian Barnett, who heads up the Regional Transport Training Service, offers informal, non-threatening training for drivers with all levels of experience. The first one day course for the year will be held on Saturday 21 March: contact Brian (0414632923) for details.
Applications are now open for businesses in the Barossa Valley to show their appreciation for the input of outstanding employees. Our club will host the annual Employee of the Year Appreciation awards dinner on Monday 9 December, 2019. This is an informal, friendly opportunity for businesses to publicly acknowledge a valued member of their staff. Family, friends and any other supporters are very welcome to attend. Contact President Brian or Secretary Ray for the details and register by 29 November, 2019.
It is now November and club members and our large band of club supporters are walking the streets of the towns in the Barossa Valley delivering the Barossa Link phone books to homes and businesses. We have done this for several years and it is a great source of funds for distribution to our community and to Rotary’s health and international support programs. The weather has been kind to us this year and the walking is good exercise.
Our last meeting saw thirteen young people from the local secondary schools honoured through our annual Vocational Education and Training (VET) Awards. Rotary recognises the importance of encouraging the youth in our community and the VET awards go to students who have been put forward by their VET coordinators as having demonstrated exceptional input and enthusiasm in their chosen course. The students had many family members with them for the dinner meeting and it was a rewarding event for our members.
