Wild & Windy!

Some of our artists braved the windy weather at Sunrise Rotary’s Melbourne Cup weekend market.

Judy, our brave leader tackled the job of putting up the marquee which did stay up despite our early concerns !

The display looked great and once again was a good opportunity to get together and promote our group.

Thanks to all who helped on the day!

Swan Hill Sunrise Rotary Club meets weekly for breakfast. The club has a focus on community involvement and supporting mental health and youth issues.
