Toilet Warrior - Mark Balla

Posted by Jaqui O'Donohoe on 12 August 2020
On the 11th Aug we had Mark Balla join us, better known as the Toilet Warrior. Mark is the current President of the Rotary Club of Box Hill Central.

It was also causing concern for female teachers who had no bathroom to use the whole day.
At the RI Convention in Seoul in 2016 Mark was elected to t...
