During April 2019 a team of ten (10) members from the Rotary Club of Liverpool West worked with the Rotary Club of Lake Cargelligo and the Rotary Club of Corrimal on a “Help the Farmers” project. Over a period of three days the group distributed nearly 600 Easter Eggs to children in seven schools in and around Lake Cargelligo in the central west of NSW. A breakfast BBQ was arranged for Saturday (13 April 19) in support of the local Farmers who have experienced severe drought conditions and are in need of support. The Club is providing financial assistance to those in need with the provision of $50 vouchers, totalling up to $10,000, which can be redeemed at local business establishments. The issue of the vouchers is being co-ordinated on our behalf by Lower Lachlan Community Services.

A very successful few days which provided support and some relief to those affected by the drought and continuing support from Rotary’s support for farmers.
In addition the Club presented a Paul Harris Recognition to Kerrie Johnston.  Kerrie has been involved with and outside Rotary for at least 10 years assisting with accommodation and organizing Rotary support visits to the Lake Cargelligo Area.  Kerrie is also very involved in the Naradhan district. 
Rotarians enjoyed local hospitality attending the Annual Rotary Debutant's Ball and touring a local Draught Horse Stud again providing financial support to those affected by the drought conditions.

The schools visited included:
                                                                        Murin Bridge Pre School;
Eubalong West Public School:
Naradahan Public School

It has been a busy week for Rotary this last week with two visiting Rotary clubs here to give support to the town and district.  Eight members from the Rotary Club of Corrimal arrived in town on Monday to make up hampers and vouchers for families affected by the drought. Fourteen members from the Rotary Club of Liverpool West arrived on Wednesday and Thursday.  They delivered Easter eggs to all schoolchildren in the area, including preschool and day-care children.  The Liverpool West club cooked breakfast for the community at the Boat Club on Saturday morning, and the Corrimal Club handed out "goody bags" and free books.  It was a picture perfect morning by the lake making our breakfast even more enjoyable. A highlight of the morning was the awarding of a Paul Harris Fellowship to Kerry Johnston in recognition of her hard work and hospitality to members of the Rotary Club of Corrimal who have been coming to the Naradhan area for the last ten years to help with work on farms.  Congratulations Kerry.
 All Rotarians enjoyed a meal at the Sports Club on Thursday evening, along with much laughter and fellowship.
Any farming families who would like to access vouchers (provided by Liverpool West Rotary Club) to spend in Lake Cargelligo can contact the Rural Financial Advisor at the LLCS.  The businesses in town who receive vouchers as payment can redeem them at the Lower Lachlan Community Services.
