2019 District Technology Training Day
Introduction of DisTec19  Graduates
DisTec19 is completed and we had over 50 great students, helpers and support persons. 
After some teething problems with circuit breakers and computer hardware issues, the day settled into a relaxing learning experience with outstanding food from Ros and her staff. 
The stories below are a composite of the hard work put in by everyone. Members gave considerable effort and time and hopefully gained valuable knowledge contributing to the technological growth of the new Rotary District 9705.  They are to be congratulated.
If anyone wanted to download some of the showbag files, they are up on the DisTec19 website.    For any followup questions or other requests, just email us.  Enjoy all the stories and photos below and be sure to check out the group photos on the District website.

I  am reflecting on being on the stage in this Young Town Hall at my Year 6 Graduation from Young North Public School in 1965. The hall looks really nice now, but a lot smaller. Just realizing how much technology has changed since 1965!
