The Rotary Club of Ringwood is part of Rotary District 9810 which covers eastern and southeastern Melbourne, including areas affected by the recent bushfires.
Tonight’s meeting featured a past Ringwood Rotarian and Marysville resident who spoke about his miraculous escape from the fires that devastated the town. The discussion focused on the determination to rebuild and the strength of the community in assisting these efforts.
The Rotary Club of Ringwood is assisting the bushfire appeal through coin collections at the corner of Mount Dandenong Road and Maroondah Highway on Saturday and is also planning other activities to assist communities as they focus on rebuilding and recovery.
Support for the bushfire affected communities will need to be ongoing, particularly as the recovery process begins.
