   W O W ! T he year is nearly over. Our club has had a very successful year with fundraising activities, working hard at a variety of BBQs within our community. The hard work by many members has been lucrative, and will enable some valuable contributions to other community organisations. This will be announced at our Changeover Dinner to be held on July 1 in our rooms at Gateway Park in Kangaroo Flat. We have had our challenges, amongst which was our President moving interstate for business, with her board supporting her as she "skyped" in for each meeting. Members have coped well with the challenges technology has provided. Events such as the Hole in One and the Swap Meet were successfully held. Charlie's Ride for Kids has been successful also. 
 

 

  

The new Board will be led by Liz Bannon, a late entrant as President Elect. Ian Doak will be Vice President, Colin Clark will continue as Treasurer, Bruce McClure will be Secretary. Other Board members include Kaylyn Journeaux, Judy Kidman and Trevor Kuhle. Our major events will continue such as the Swap Met and Hole in One, and we hope to develop some new projects as well..
 

  

Why Days for Girls Matters

What if not having sanitary supplies meant DAYS without school? Days of isolation? Girls use leaves, mattress stuffing, newspaper, corn husks, rocks, anything they can find...but still miss up to 2 months of education and opportunity every year. It turns out this issue is a surprising but instrumental key to social change for women all over the world.

Our Club, through President/Director Liz Bannon, make these kits to ship overseas. 

Each Wednesday night at 5.30pm a team of volunteers arrive at the Rotary Function Center with meals for those in need. A joint community project with the Kangaroo Flat Community Enterprise (providing funds to purchase the meals), St John of God (providing the meals), Bendigo Bank & Bendigo Special Development School providing volunteers and Rotary providing the venue. A team effort.
 
If you know of families or people who need assistance please let them know we are here to help. Come along and enjoy a meal and companionship.
