The Rotary Club of Rylstone Kandos had a very interesting guest speaker at their recent meetings.
David Deasey, a member of the National Boer War Memorial Association spoke of the significance of the Boer War, the first time that Australia served as a nation.
A number of local Rylstone men served in that conflict and Mr Deasey is very keen to speak with anyone who has more information about them.
“We need this information to be included in the new National Boer War Memorial currently being constructed at Anzac Parade, Canberra.”

Rotary was again on deck during the day in welcome sunshine at the Rylstone Family Fun Day held at the showground.
“We were so happy to see the sun again, after all the rain, cloud and wind,” organiser Marissa Quintana said.
The theme was recycling which was very popular with everyone. Rotary served sausages and wraps to fuel the hungry crowd.
“The money raised through the food sales paid for the Disco on the day,” Rotary President Elizabeth McKay said.
We were so happy to see the sun.
“As a club, we are very happy to support this non-profit local event, thanks all those who helped make the day a success.” she said.
