Kooyongkoot Alliance Plaque reveil uses RCEM Marquee
How was this for a great branding opportunity...........
Well done to our member Alick Osborne who very kindly lent our marquees for the unveiling of a plaque to commemorate the Queen’s Jubilee tree planting in Markham Reserve, Ashburton. 'Kooyongkoot Alliance' President Graham Ross and Federal Member for Higgins Dr Michelle Ananda-Rajah did the honours. And it just happened that Michelle was guest speaker at our club the night prior.
A few thousand more trees to plant next year.
Rotary Clubs of Chadstone/East Malvern and Port Philip together with the District program ‘World of Difference’ and the Rotary Foundation will create approximately 40 Washroom Toilets by rebuilding the structure of existing toilets.
Cambodia women are forced to bath themselves and their children in the open spaces because they do not have adequate facilities. Rotary is stepping in to change that!!
Over 5000 people in Cambodia will soon be drinking fresh water thanks to a Rotary International Global Grant and they will raise a glass of gratitude to Rotary International
Our Rotary Club is ensuring students in Vanuatu can focus on their studies because we are providing drinking water to more schools with support from Rotary Foundation through a District International Grant.
