A Message from our District Governor - Bronwyn Stephens Thursday 26th July 2018

September is End Polio month and I would really appreciate your assistance in promoting this opportunity for Club members to contribute to the End Polio campaign.  This 1/2 page graphic should hopefully fit well and I would be grateful if you are willing to promote it.  If more jars of smarties can be enjoyed and then filled up I can provide plenty more via your Assistant Governor.  Money raised can be transferred via your Treasurer to the District fundraising account. .

 

 


Last Week Guest Speaker : Anne Coughlin – Community Information Centre Glen Eira

Community Information and Support Victoria (CISVic) is a community-based information and referral service staffed by trained personnel, the majority of whom are volunteers. The centre offers a personal information service in a supportive and informal setting and when required can refer clients to other appropriate local community services.

Trained volunteers provide specialist information and referral to public community services. Information given includes areas such as community affairs, income and assistance in obtaining other basic living essentials. Referral can be made to health, welfare, financial counselling, housing and support agencies if appropriate.

Assistance is provided to local residents in need of relief from poverty, sickness, suffering, distress, misfortune, destitution or helplessness. Assistance is provided in the form of non-perishable food and food vouchers.

In Australia, Farmers are the lifeblood of our country, and as you will have read in the news - - they are in crisis, suffering through record breaking heat and minimal rainfall. Families on the land are suffering and they need our help to keep cattle, sheep and crops alive.

We in Rotary have been working with Channel Nine and in partnership with the National Farmers’ Federation to set up an emergency relief fund. 100% of donations are given to the NFF - the peak body for farmers in Australia, all donations are made via Rotary so they are tax deductible.

We launched the public appeal on the Today show and this is where you come in. This crisis is bigger than anything we have seen in many years and without immediate financial assistance, farmers are being forced to slaughter their own animals and walk off their properties. We cannot let this happen. We need your help to spread the word and a donation would be much appreciated. Every dollar counts, please click on the link below to donate and feel free to forward this email to your networks.
