Newly Formed Knox Rotaract Club
Very pleasing this week to hear from Nidhi Wadhwa, President of the newly
formed Knox Rotaract Club, and to meet several of the other members of this
Nidhi outlined that her interest in community service
activities was built on experiences volunteering, including a month
spent in Cambodia teaching English and some time in Vancouver
teaching digital literacy to the homeless. Joining Rotaract seemed
an ideal way to fulfil her desire to help communities in need.
After an initial interest meeting last December, the first
meeting of the Club was held in April. The original group of 9
members has now grown to 11..

East Gippsland Rotary Fire Aid
Our speaker this week, John Fallon, is a member of East Gippsland
Rotary Fire Aid, which was formed in early January by members of
five Rotary Clubs in the Gippsland area, as the fires raged in that
John reminded us of some horrifying statistics about the
fires: that more than 18.6 million hectares of forest and farmland
were destroyed, around 6000 buildings were burnt to the ground and
34 people lost their lives. In addition, around 1 billion animals
were killed in the fires.

Stephen Barrington from Foothills Community Care.
This organisation has been running since 2002 and provides meals for the
most vulnerable in the community, who may be dealing with domes-tic
violence, isolation, homelessness or food insecurity.
Having started by providing Christmas Dinner in the Ferntree
Gully Guide Hall, the organisation has grown to provide a weekly
community meal at the FTG Guide Hall on Wednesdays and on Mondays in
Upwey. Each of these regularly feeds 50-60 people but can be up to
90-100 in the cold months. At these evenings, the recipients
appreciate not only the sustenance from the food but the chance to
sit at a table and have a chat with friendly faces. There is once a
month a community casserole cook up, which provides 200 meals per
month, and a support service for domestic abuse victims.
We are a vibrant community based volunteer service club and welcome visitors at our weekly club meetings. If you'd like to come and join us for dinner one evening please feel most welcome! Please contact
Rajeev Wadhwa (President) on 0408 059 778 or Kevin Harrison (Vice President) on 0419 919 011 to make arrangements.
Our Meetings are Held every Tuesday
6:30pm for 7:00pm Start
