The club is working very closely with the Rotary Club of Pokhara Fishtail, Nepal to get immediate aid to those who have lost everything in the recent earthquake. $4,000 has been sent directly to Nepal. In the last 30 days since the first earthquake members of the Pokhara Fishtail club have utilised $14,000 for urgent humanitarian assistance in the area around Pokhara.
The Rotary Club of Margaret River is in the process of investigating how best to develop 2.8 Hectare Rotary Park site and turn it into a family hub for nature play based activities for kids. This process will be developed together and in association with AMR Shire.
Margaret River librarian Rachael Drummond has been selected to participate in a Rotary Vocational Exchange to Turkey in 2015. Rachael was one of 4 selected out of a field of 8. Rachael reported to the Club on her progress learning the Turkish language and the excitement of team meetings. The team leaves in April and their trip will coincide with the Centenary Anzac commemorations.
