Cabana Productions, on behalf of the Rotary Club of Glenelg, we would like to thank Lexi, Adam and Wayne for producing a video of our Signature event, the 2019 Cold Plunge to raise money for the Adelaide Homeless. You are Champions and we will treasure this bit of history of our club. We truly appreciate the time you've taken and the work you have done in promoting the event.
Our most well-known annual Local Community Project is "Supporting The Homeless". To raise funds for this cause we run a annual event called the Cold Plunge were we raise funds for the homeless in our local community. All proceeds go to charities that do fantastic work for the Homeless and less fortunate in our community. the idea was initiated by one of our past club members Jessie Vun who took part in a similar event when she lived in Russia.

Today Rosie, Wayne and Kerry (the three dependable musketeers) spent an unbelievable morning helping Heart and Soul prepare and distribute food to the community around Hackham West Primary School. Well done to Aman, her team and other volunteers who do such a fantastic job. Earlier in the week Wayne dropped of some things for Heart & Soul to help with a person who lost her home in a fire.

In Feb 2019, Arthur and Audrey very graciously donated $2000 to the club for the Farmers Drought Appeal.
Roger Hornett and his mom attended the club meeting in May 2019 to present about his experience and learnings from the RYPEN program. Roger was sponsored by RC Glenelg for RYPEN this year. Must say, he is a very nice young man that have obviously benefited from the program.
