Rotary People in Action

 

Youth Alumni Hub

Rotary District 9800 Youth Alumni Hub is being developed to maintain contact with all past participants of Rotary District Youth Programs allowing them to stay in touch with Rotary and to tap into and promote to their networks the ongoing youth programs of Rotary (such as those above). As each Rotary youth program concludes, participants are invited to join the alumni by a program leader who facilitates their membership. The Committee is also looking at new ways to engage former participants in Rotary ideals and projects. The team are always looking for new members, new ideas and opportunities to promote Rotary activities.

Turning Bread Tags into Wheel Chairs

These pesky little pieces of plastic usually go into landfill and because of their small size are particularly dangerous to wildlife. They are made of high impact polystyrene (type 6 plastic) which is denser than many other types of plastic, making them compact. Because of their small size, our recycler in Robe can skip the shredding stage of his process, going straight to melting and extruding the plastic. Unlike most other plastic waste, bread tags are usually clean.

All bread tags collected in Australia are currently being recycled locally. Bread tags are not turned into wheelchairs. The recyclers make a donation to us for the tags and these donations fund the wheelchairs.

Give a damm........Give a can

Tight economic conditions over the last few months has seen a drop off in charitable donations and critical food shortages are being experienced.

Can you help boost our Food Bank to supply essential items those in need during winter. Just leave bags of non-perishable foods next to your letterboxes for collection by volunteers.

Contact us to arrange for one of our members to collect your donation.
