ShelterBox was an active participant at Southern Region’s Rotary Australia World Community Service Annual Meeting and Conference on 13th & 14th October. The weekend was hosted by the International Service Committee of Rotary District 9790 and the Rotary Club of Yarrawonga – Mulwala, at Club Mulwala. Rotarians from six Rotary Districts participated.
9790 District Rep, Alan Jones, organised the ShelterBox display and also spoke about ShelterBox at the conference. Alan said,
“The display was in the foyer of Club Mulwala so everyone who entered the club had to walk right past it. The gigantic tent, box and display screens certainly attracted a lot of attention. There was considerable interest not just from the Rotarians at the conference, but also from patrons at the club. There were a number of spontaneous offers of help with fundraising and many people wanting to know more about what we do. It certainly proved the effectiveness of being out in the community.”
