At the end of 2020, the Rotary Club of Campbelltown sponsored and helped establish the Interact Club of Charles Campbell College. Interact Clubs involve members between the ages of 14 and 18 – our secondary students. At the same time, through Nikki the chair of our club’s Youth Committee, we supported Charles Campbell College to establish an EarlyAct Club for students in the primary years, up to the age of 13. The mission of EarlyAct is to promote goodwill, understanding and peace through student service - so that with the committed citizenship and effective leadership they can improve the quality of life of their school, local and global communities. At a young age, students can easily be encouraged to be caring and helpful. Young people are open to recognise the dignity and worth of each individual, thereby building their respect for others. Earlyacters engage in character building activities that prepare them for leadership roles - they carry out projects which benefit others. In addition to supporting their school’s Breakfast Club, the EarlyAct Club has initiated a Backpack Project to help those experiencing homelessness. Three members of the board of the new Earlyact club - President Lily, Vice President Tahlia, and Treasurer Ruby discussed their project to the club below.
District Governor Jeff Neale presented Member Alyssa Morran with a Paul Harris Award in recognition of her contribution of $1000 to the Rotary Foundation.

At our meeting on the 12th July District Governor Jeff Neale introduced his father Reg Neale who was the 1966 foundation member of the Club.
Note : Reg was unable to attend Jeff’s District Governor Induction at last Sunday’s District Conference due to Covid restrictions but it was a great pleasure & honour for both Jeff, members and guests, to have Reg at the first Campbelltown 2021-2022 meeting with Jeff as the new District Governor for the Rotary Year 2021-2022.

Under the Bonnet - The Bay to Birdwood
Under the Bonnet - The Bay to Birdwood

The Bay to Birdwood is one of the world’s great historic motoring events and is the largest continually-held motoring event for veteran, vintage and classic vehicles anywhere in the world. It is an event that truly has no age limit, boasting a reach across a broad demographic.

The Bay to Birdwood is a vehicle run held annually. Historic motorcars, motorcycles, and commercial vehicles travel the 70 km route from the coastal suburb of West Beach to the National Motor Museum in the Adelaide Hills town of Birdwood. With a history spanning back to 1980, the Bay to Birdwood is a well-known and highly respected historic motoring event that brings the community and the citizen-collectors from across the globe together for a celebration.

There are two Bay to Birdwood events: the Run is held on even-numbered years and the Classic on odd-numbered years. The Run is an event for vehicles manufactured up to 31 December 1959 and is held in ‘even’ numbered years ie. 2020, 2022, 2024 etc. The Classic is an event for vehicles manufactured between 1 January 1956 to 31 December 1986, held in ‘odd’ numbered years ie. 2019, 2021, 2023 etc.

The Bay to Birdwood is a community event – from the five thousand participants in entrant vehicles – to the hundreds of volunteers – right through to the tens of thousands of spectators lining the route to watch this historic motoring cavalcade as it travels through metropolitan Adelaide and the Hills. At the National Motor Museum Finish motor enthusiasts and spectators enjoy an afternoon of displays, entertainment and the very popular judging of the Concours d’Elegance and Preservation Award vehicles. The South Australian community has truly embraced the event with their continued support on the last Sunday in September each year.
