Rotarian of the Month
Peter presented this award to Donna Hammett along with a bunch of flowers in recognition of her sterling work with the meal attendance numbers. This was also Donna's last night with us as she is moving to Brisbane.
A highlight of the night was the presentation to Ross Harrison of a double sapphire PHF in recognition of his work behind the scenes in many club activities over a long period and in particular his contribution to the recent Opera in the Hangar event. CONGRATULATIONS Ross well deserved.!!

He was the State Manager for Telstra for SA & NT from 1989 to 1997, during which time he presented an international paper at a conference in St Petersburg, Russia. He retired in 1993 after 43 years. He is married with 2 sons and several grand children. Kevin has been a Rotarian for 40 years and considers himself to be very blessed.
