Meeting 4 February 2020
We had an enjoyable night with apologies from Peter Beadle, Joe Cauchi, Alan Hall, Frans Buskermolen and Geoff Gibbs.
President Sam updated members on his discussions with Youth of the Streets and on the progress in sourcing a generator for the catering van being operated by Turbans 4 Australia.
PP John Pillay confirmed that the toilet and shower block we funded in Wiadradra Village is now fully functional and was officially launched by the Health Minister. Thanks to the Rotary Club of Suva North for partnering with us in this project.
We started planning the next visit to Narromine which is scheduled for the first week of April.
Members of Truc Lam Zen Centre raised a significant amount at this year’s Tet Festival.
It was a hot weekend and they were supported by many of our members and while because of the heat meal sales were down donations were generous. Funds raised will be shared equally between the RAWCS Bushfire Appeal and our Drought Assistance appeal.
Tax Deductible donations can now be made by going to

Rotary National Bushfire Appeal Project 68-2019-20

We have all seen the disastrous fires that have erupted, taking lives as well as destroying hundreds of homes and properties across Australia.
Rotary is once again taking the lead and looking to provide support for families in need. To this end several Rotary Districts and Clubs have established projects which are ready and able to accept donations from you. All of those projects can apply for funds from this appeal.
To donate please go to this link:
