MS Swimathon

A big thank you to all members and friends who volunteered to help out at the MegaSwim on 24-25th February. Ann Davie did a great job once again pulling the event together. So far according to Ann, $107,000 has been raised with fundraising open for a further 4 weeks. Ann wanted to particularly thank Pat and Barrie Morton for their amazing contribution to ensuring the setup, delivery of food and general running of the Fitzroy Rotary’s involvement.


Lunch Saturday 25th March


A lunch is planned at the North Fitzroy Arms hotel on Saturday 25th March at 1 pm. This is instead of the Monday meeting. It will be a fundraiser so please bring along friends and neighbours. To enable planning for this event to go ahead could you please RSVP to Joy Millen. If you have any ideas for a guest speaker could you also let Joy know. The cost of the lunch will be $40, which includes main course and cheese platter. Drinks are at bar prices.
