On July 5, the Rotary Club of Boorowa held its 54th Annual Changeover Dinner with outgoing President, Darrell Hanns, passing the chain of office to incoming President Sina Banks.

Past President Darrell thanked his fellow club members for their support during the previous year and wished incoming President Sina all the best for her year. Darrell was proud to announce the completion of the Dr Kelf Park BBQ and seating, which has been utilised by locals and travellers.

During the evening the club was presented with three Rotary International and one District award for membership growth. The club is strong and working well in Boorowa.

President Sina, in her acceptance speech, invited fellow Rotarians and interested people to join her and husband, Alan, on a three week working holiday to The School of St Jude in Tanzania in 2015, to work at the school, visit students and their families and enjoy the beautiful sightseeing.

The Rotary Club of Boorowa has supported this school since its foundation ten years ago.

During the year the Rotary Club of Boorowa, has donated in excess of $10,000 to local and international beneficiaries. This money was raised through Rotary fundraising activities such as Friday night raffles, bush bash weekend, Australia Day duck races and other fun projects.
