Devastating floods have once again struck along the east coast of Australia for the second year in a row. This year, the devastation was even greater than last year. In support of our local communities affected by flooding in the Hawkesbury-Nepean River system, an appeal has been set up by Rotary Australia World Community Service (RAWCS) to raise funds for all of those who have lost their homes, possessions and, in many cases, their livelihoods. 
Match your $ for $.
This project is supported by an anonymous donor who will match every dollar donated $ up to $50,000. All funds raised will go to providing  gift cards to those affected and suffering hardship  by the recent tragic floods in the Greater Sydney District.  By using the QR code or this link,
Your donations will receive tax deductible receipt.
Gift vouchers to the value of $34,500 has already been provided through a Rotary Foundation Disaster Response grant and are currently being distributed in the  Hawkesbury, Richmond, Windsor, Lower Portland, Sackville areas. Funding can only be used for individuals suffering hardship and not infrastructure or  orgnaisations.
Where possible the distribution process will be through Rotary Clubs.
We also had a donation from the Rotary Club of Manly of $5,000 Coles gift cards and these are being distributed in the Richmond area.
Help our own community by donating to the District 9685 RAWCS Flood Appeal for the Greater Sydney District. Take this message to your board for club support

On 18-19th March, we attended the annual District Conference, themed "Navigating Change. COVID has been obstructive in the last couple of years for our Conbferences, but this time it was all GO. Held at HQ West in Rooty Hill, this flamboyant Conference Centre, Hotel and RSL Club proved to be a great venue for some 450 Rotarians. It was so good to see everyone and renew networks and friendships. what we also reflected on that the community work has been still carried on despite COVID.  
Whilst at one level it was a social event, there was a serious side with our community work. The Young Australian of the Year, Dr Daniel Nour, spoke about his work in setting up Street Side Medics, bringing on-the-ground medical support to homeless and disadvantaged people. What an inspiration he is.
The second highlight of the Conference was hearing from the iconic athlete Louise Sauvage OAM (shown below being interviewed by Stephanie Brantz) who relived some of her Paralympic sporting achievements. What a determined, purposeful person she is.
A great Conference and congratulations to DG Lindsay May and the Conference team.
