ShelterBox Australia (SBA) are seeking two experienced Rotarians to join the Board of Directors with effect from July 2022. 
The positions being sought are:
General Board Director
Finance Director
Rotary Inner Melbourne Emergency Relief Network (RIMERN) needs a VAN, so what better way to raise funds amongst Rotarians and friends than to launch their own wine range, three VAN ROUGE & three VAN BLANC!
Great value, quality Australian wines with their own distinctive RIMERN label are now available for online order, delivered to your door anywhere in Australia except Northern Territory.
Who watched the big combined network telethon for the Red Cross Flood Appeal over the weekend? And who pledged their hard-earned to the appeal?  Many of us on Facebook and other social media questioned just how much of the funds raised would indeed be distributed in the areas affected by floods.  If you want to know how and where your money should go, consider the appeal set up by RAWCS (Rotary Australia World Community Service).
In response to the deepening humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, Rotary International created an official channel for contributions to support the relief efforts underway by Rotary districts. 
In just a little over a week, Rotary members and donors around the world, have contributed over $2 million to Rotary’s disaster response fund. These donations are designated for immediate-use grants that support relief efforts in #Ukraine and surrounding regions. Rotary districts in and around Ukraine may apply for grants of up to $50,000 each.
