Thanks from the East Gippsland Rotary Fire Aid Committee
After 2019 fires in East Gippsland, RCWE forwarded $5000 to the relief effort, mainly thanks to a day of the Hole-in-1 dedicated to the cause. A letter of thanks and a banner has been received from the East Gippsland Rotary Fire Aid Committee comprised of several clubs in the area. (Actual size 30 x 18 cm)

Clontarf Awards Night

Did you know? - Rotary Foundation
Continuing the Rotary Foundation theme, as November is Foundation Month:-
Over the years, RCWE has contributed US$70,000 to the Foundation on behalf of people as a way of recognising 
their work in Rotary and/or the Community. These have been:-
            38 Rotarians, the first being PDG Frank Jacobs in 1985-1986,
              4 Rotarians being recognised a second time (a sapphire)
              7 Partners of Rotarians
            20 Community Members, not Rotarians
              1 Member of the Timor Leste Community.
Shirley Rhook made a personal contribution of US$1000 while a member of the Club.
Several current and past members of RCWE have credit towards achieving US$1000 as a result of the Centurion Program through which they commit to contribute A$100 each year.
The Rotary Foundation grants Paul Harris Fellow Recognition to anyone who personally contributes US$1000 or in whose name such sum is contributed. The 71 mentioned above were recorded on the Honour Board, recently removed from the wall of the room in which we have our weekly meetings.
