The Rotary Club of Encounter Bay has nominated an innovative Wilderness Therapy Expedition for students at Victor Harbor High School’s Flexible Learning Options
(FLO) as its Signature Project for 2016-17

The Club has provided support to FLO over many years,including funding for the purchase of new computers.Assistance has also been given to encourage students
to attend the very successful local Roadsafe Youth Driving Awareness program which is run by the club. Early in October 2016, students from FLO will be taking part in the 14-day Wilderness Therapy Expeditionwhich, while similar to South Australia’s long-standing Operation Flinders program, is instead run on a therapeutic base. The expedition leader, Will Dobud, is a young American who has successfully worked for
many years with disadvantaged young people in remote areas of Canada and Alaska.

We remembered and paid our respect to Don Kennett at his funeral on Thursday 13 October 2016.  Don passed away on 2nd October following complications he suffered following a very bad fall the previous weekend. He joined our club in 2004 and served in many positions, including as Vocational Director. Previous to joining Encounter Bay he was a charter member of Hindmarsh Rotary Club where he achieved an amazing 100% attendance for his full 33 years of membership. While at Hindmarsh he served as President and Director in all service areas, and also as the District Secretary. Don has been a popular member and committed Rotarian and will be sadly missed. We extend our sincere condolences to Beth and family.
