Club social visit to Echuca in 1998
This Week - 10.03.2020
Second Vocational Visit to Mainstream Aquaculture - 73 Lock Ave, Werribee
The second half of the club members undertook the tour of Mainstream Aquaculture. The organisation produces 90% of the Barramundi consumed in Australia, from their factory in Werribee.
Following the tour, Enzo & Adelina Maddalon hosted us at the MAD Bros premises for a wonderful BBQ.
Our thanks to Enzo & Adalina who didn't want any payment for the night. (It is a good sized room for a Rotary social function??)
Next week - 17.03.2020
Guest Speaker - Alcoholics Anonymous
Geoff Smith was meant to be the chairman for the night, but in his absence, PP Phil Purdy is the logical choice.
