Rotary and Ray White Southbank - A little Ray of Giving

Rotary and Ray White Southbank - A little Ray of Giving

Despite the strong winds and potential rains, we had our club meeting on 14th August 2018 at the Belgian Beer Cafe in Southbank - seventeen (17) of us braved the weather so kudo's to everyone!

Andrew Salvo from Ray White Southbank gave us an update on "A little Ray of Giving" program which has been running nationally by all Ray White branches throughout Australia for awhile. Last year in 2017, Ray White Southbank came fourth (4th) in the Victoria state and received numerous in-kind and cash donations; partial of that success was  partnering/collaborating with our club. Vision and ambition is for Ray White Southbank to top the Victoria state in this program this year in 2018 and to get as much exposure from the Southbank and nearby communities to give as much / little where possible to help our unprivileged communities through the program.

We also had visiting Rotarians and their family members who came all the way from Pune, Maharashtra, India to pay our club a visit - from the Rotary Club of Pune Nagar Road, India (District 3131). Banner and business card exchange was conducted and oh my, how District Governor Nominee Philip Archer was humbled to be connected with his roots as he was born in Pune many many years ago! Though, the banter continues in the club on who is REAL INDIAN in the club, lol (laughing out loud)!
