  • Dear President Steve and members of the Rotary Club of Brighton,
Our Parish Picnic at St Paul’s Anglican Church was a great success this past Sunday, June 24. To help make it so was the use of the Rotary BBQ which the club so kindly made available to us. It made the preparation of the food so much easier and more efficient.
I’d like to make special mention of our appreciation for the help given by Rotarian Rudy Wagner to get the BBQ to the Parish Hall, and then back to its usual place of storage. Thank you, Rudy, for taking the time and providing the means for transporting the BBQ.
Thank you very much to you and club membership for the use of the Rotary BBQ on Sunday, June 24.
This comes on behalf of the leadership of St Paul’s, Mrs Mary Lou Workman who did an excellent job of coordinating the Parish Picnic, and the whole congregation.
Most sincerely, Keith Joyce (Fr) (and Rotarian)

2018 Outbound Exchange Student Rochelle Bretton
R Ricardo introduced Rochelle as our 2018 / 2019 outbound exchange student. A very mature student.
Rochelle told us a little about herself, her love of travel and photography.
She is going to Taiwan in August. It was her first choice, a choice she made at the winter camp. She didn't go to camp with Taiwan as her goal, but it changed at camp. She is looking for new and very different cultural experiences.
