Rotary Supports Drought Stricken Community

Community people in the farming district of Karoonda have been severely challenged by a series of drought years, resulting in poor harvests, and reduced incomes. Continuing drought conditions have been a real emotional and financial struggle for these rural families.
The resilience of these people was clearly demonstrated at a recent community event held at the Karoonda Golf Course. Local leaders arranged this event which was designed to attract local families to attend a social occasion where they could share their experiences, and support and care for each other through these hard times. Football and netball competitions have been favourite occasions for families to get together, but the COVID19 crisis put an end to that. So the attraction at this event was to learn how to play golf, which is a new participant sport for many young locals. Golf Pro Stephen Wilson, from Murray Bridge, was commissioned to give lessons to 26 keen learners, and over 40 locals joined in the very enjoyable BBQ lunch for all. It is anticipated that further competition days will continue into the future.
This important social event at Karoonda was sponsored by the Rotary Club of Murray Bridge, who channelled Rotary Australia World Community Services funds to meet a local need.
Local farmer, Hannah Loller, expressed appreciation on behalf of the community, “Please thank Rotary and let them know our household is feeling a lot brighter for the opportunity.”
