Rotary Club of Ringwood – establishing regional partnerships

By November 12, 2008No Comments

The Rotary of Ringwood, is one of the many Rotary clubs within Australia and part of Rotary International which comprises of 1.2 million members worldwide.

Today’s meeting discussed the potential to establish a community partnership with the Rotary Club of Kaninva, located in the Shire of West Wimmera, to provide assistance to this drought affected region. The project would be modelled on the successful Boroondara Cares program which provides support for within the Moira Shire located along the Murray River in Northern Victoria.

Officebearers of the Rotary Club of Ringwood will be travelling to Kaniva in early December to discuss the project in further detail and to witness the effects of drought within this part of regional Victoria.

Following this visit, the Rotary Club of Ringwood will formulate a strategy to provide relief and lasting community partnerships with Kaniva and the Western Wimmera.

Service Above Self is one of the key tenants of Rotary and this project certainly has the potential to create strong community partnerships and contribute to the wellbeing of regional Victoria.
