November 2023 | Issue 2

Welcome to Opportunity Knocks - the bulletin of the Rotary E-Club of Brindabella.
Quote for the Week "Volunteers are unpaid not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless" - Anonymous.
Rotarians are special people who do something for somebody every day for which they do not get paid.
Have a great week everybody, looking forward to seeing you all at the Christmas Party.
