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 group.


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 area.


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
