Australian group to visit Craig
May 24, 2010
Six Australian business professionals are scheduled to spend three days in Craig as part of a month-long visit to the Rocky Mountain region, according to a news release from the Craig Rotary Club.
The local Rotary Club is hosting the study group, which is sponsored by The Rotary Foundation.
The Australian group will visit Trapper Mine and Tri-State Generation & Transmission's Craig Station on Wednesday to learn similarities and differences to counterpart operations in their region.
Rotarian Wendy Milligan, general manger of health services and health centers in New South Wales, is the team leader.
Other team members are Toni Laurie, an environment officer for a leading energy company; Chris Stace, a credit union branch manager; Kristy Reading, a community relations coordinator for a cancer council; Andrew Bailey, a nurse manager for a hospital; and Ben Spence, a coordinator of housing strategy for the government.
Team members must be non-Rotarians between 25 and 40.
The team's home District 9650 is on Australia's east coast, and is situated from north of Sydney to south of Brisbane, and bounded by the Outback to the West.
The District Governor is Neville Parsons, who led a similar team in 2001 to Craig. He is a close friend of Past District Governor Bill Muldoon, of the Craig Rotary Club.
After Craig, the team will spend several days with two Rotary clubs in Steamboat Springs, and then head north to visit clubs in Wyoming.
