ON THE LAND Ro­tary sup­ports the farm­ing com­mu­nity

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - On The Land -

The Yar­ra­wonga Mul­wala Ro­tary Club re­cently con­ducted a very suc­cess­ful Hay Day Ap­peal where the pub­lic con­trib­uted to a load of hay sent to strug­gling farm­ers in north­ern NSW.

The amount do­nated was matched by the club to fi­nance this pro­ject.

The gen­eros­ity shown, and the feed­back ex­pressed by the com­mu­nity dur­ing this ap­peal was a clear in­di­ca­tion of the com­mu­nity de­sire to sup­port farm­ing fam­i­lies in dif­fi­cult times.

Fur­ther­more, the sen­ti­ment was ex­pressed that at­ten­tion could be di­rected to lo­cal farm­ers, some of whom are fac­ing great per­sonal dis­tress this year, as a re­sult of the con­tin­ued dry weather.

The club is work­ing with Yar­ra­wonga Health Com­mu­nity Ser­vices to de­velop a pro­gram aimed at ad­dress­ing Men’s Men­tal Health in ru­ral com­mu­ni­ties and a group of Ro­tar­i­ans have joined the hair grow­ing set, to raise money to­wards the pro­gram.

To sup­port this “Grovem­ber” ini­tia­tive, please do­nate at BSB 013 945, A/c 287409777, Ref­er­ence; Grovem­ber.
