Young approach to fresh start

THE Border’s new Rotary club is keen to attract young workers to its breakfast meetings.

The Rotary Club of Albury-Wodonga Sunrise will hold a charter dinner on Saturday at the Commercial Club, Albury.

The club, which operated last year as a probationary club, has 20 members.

It has already held two successful fund-raisers — a comedy night and netball competition that included a coaching clinic for school children with Australian representative players.

The events tipped $8000 into the club’s fund-raising account.

President Conor Noonan said the club would have a youth focus.

Albury-Wodonga’s nine other Rotary clubs all have evening or lunch meetings.

The longest running, the Rotary Club of Albury, has operated for 85 years.

Albury North is sponsoring the Sunrise club.

Albury North past president Roger Schnelle said the Border needed a “youth” club.

The Sunrise club meets on Wednesdays at La Maison Cafe, from 6.45am for a 7am start.
