MUSIC IN THE PARK IN THE SHIRE HALL!
Noel and John McIlwraith planned and staged a wonderful event on Sat 13th March regardless of incoming rain. Plan B was decided early so that musicians could set up equipment with confidence.
A small but enthusiastic crowd enjoyed an afternoon of music provided by Mark Robinson, Pans on Fire, Tayla Arnett and Soloman and Lacey. All were amazing and gave us a wide variety of talent to appreciate.
Special thanks to everyone who set up the hall, cooked the BBQ (Ian Gibb), MC (Ian Davis), covid marshalls (Kerry, Bob Flowers, Aju, Tom, Sharon Fox and Helen). Many others were involved – Jacksons, John Sharwood and Maurie who supervised the BBQ. Lynda and Sharen Robinson assisted Mark.
We also thank the businesses who participated – coffee from Grant Street Grocer (Lisa and Bec) and wine from Little River Winery (Phillip and Christine Challen).
Huge thanks to Noel and John McIlwraith! It was a wonderful contribution to the community in both encouraging local musicians and providing live music for an audience.

Bumper crowds turned out over the Easter weekend to enjoy a wonderful display of works at the Rotary Club of Alexandra’s 51st Annual Easter Art Show. Entries, sales and average sale price were all up on previous years.
The Alexandra Art Excellence award was won by Lorraine Lewitzka, with ‘Lunch Date’,
Section One, Oil or Acrylic, won by Craig Davy for ‘Autumn Light’
Section 2, Work on Paper, won by Max Wilkes for ‘Summer Landscape’
Section 3, Any medium priced up to $750, won by Vida Pearson for ‘Mallee II’
Section 4, Woodwork, large platter, Ernie Hunt
Section 5, Photography, Christine Siciliano, ‘Poppy’
Section 6, Emerging Artist, Jill Keen, ‘Hot Afternoon’.
Most popular artwork, as judged by Art Show attendees, Ann Capling, with her very topical work and engaging work, ‘The Covidian Era.’
The Rotary Club of Alexandra would like to thank our community and Shire Council for supporting this event in so many ways; through sponsorships, catalogue advertising, with manpower to set up and dismantle the show, donation of goods and services- entertainment, publicity, refreshments, raffle prizes and in many other ways too numerous to mention.
Thanks also to the organising committee who have put in many hours over preceding months to put the Show together. It really has been a team effort by Rotary members and friends.

Alice Sloan Expedition
We stated with a brief history of Alice Sloan Foundation. The girls thanked Rotary for the opportunity that they had received which had led to growth and positive changes in them throughout the program.
The girls then took it in turns giving reasons why they joined the expedition. Their reasons varied, but most agreed it was to get closer to the other girls, develop leadership qualities and take on challenges.
Highlights of their program were told by each of the girls.
• The night at OEG sharing personal stories
• The ability to bounce back from adversity
• Meeting the Sloans
• Conquering the challenging bike track
• Gathering together under the tarp on the last night
• First taste of ‘real food’
• One big group at the start but one big family at the end
• Hike up Mt Torbrek which was tough!
• Rafting where we bonded the most
• A very challenging 8km hike finished with relief and satisfaction
• Water activities that brought everyone together
• High ropes day that you cannot do alone, so everyone helps each other
All learnt a lot about themselves; what they can do and achieve, and to feel comfortable around the other girls. They learnt from their mistakes, how resilient they can be, and how humour and happiness is needed in hard times.
The girls have more activities planned for this year including ‘Walk for Life’ and a visit to Toorak College.
They thanked the Club for wanting to hear of their expedition. Thanks to Bronwyn Howell for all her organisation and support, Outdoor Education Group and the Alexandra Secondary College.
