Spring is finally in the air! Last week, we had our annual Melbourne Cup breakfast meeting, and a great time was had by all.
While there were no dress prizes, many members certainly looked the part. Our honorary member and guest speaker, Dr Chris Back, recounted many wonderful Melbourne Cup memories that he had accumulated during his professional veterinary career. Thank you Chris.

FUN FACT
 
Are Jacaranda’s native to Australia?
 
Jacaranda is so well known to Australians and so well loved, that many of us think of them as a native. But the genus Jacaranda is actually native to South America, and the most common variety in Australia, jacaranda mimosifolia , may be from an Argentine source.
 
As well as the annual Rotary Jacaranda Festival in Applecross, Jacaranda festivals are a highlight of the year in many towns across Australia, including in Grafton, Goodna, Camden, Woodville and Ipswich, to name a few.
 
Pretoria, South Africa’s capital, is renowned for them, as is Gaborone, the capital of Botswana.  California, Texas, Florida, southern Italy, Malta, Portugal, Spain and India boast stunning populations of jacaranda, too.
