Episode: #14 – Rotary Club Radio – Camille Hardman & Ron Hunt, Tully Rotary – Big Dreamers Documentary
I interviewed Camille Hardman from Barking Cat Productions and Ron Hunt from the Tully Rotary Club in Northern Queensland Australia. Ron, a 38-year Rotary veteran, joined me on Rotary Club Radio to talk about this unique project that the Tully Rotary Club did to save their small town from financial disaster. Camille, a film producer, was able to record the story to share with the world.
Tully is a small town known for its heavy rains and successful sugar cane market. However, when Brazil dumped its sugar stockpile on the global market, Tully’s economy sank to the brink of a financial crisis.
At a town meeting called to brainstorm how to save the town, one man proposed something completely crazy ~ to build the world’s Biggest Gumboot in honor of Tully’s record rainfall of 7.98 meters back in 1950.
In a wild turn of events that brought everything together in this funny documentary, we get an inside view of a Rotary Clubs’ ambitious goals to save their town, a lot of laughs, and a whole lot more.
