What's happening around District 9800      
 
  Here’s cheers to a great “Let it Pour” campaign to help our drought stricken country cousins with this year’s National Rotary Drought Appeal.  
Pubs and clubs across the nation will unite on a single weekend in October urging Australians to pour out their hearts and open their wallets in support of farming communities facing ruin after years of drought.  Our partners this year include Great Northern Brewing Company (GNBC), Rotary Districts and Clubs in Australia, Channel 9 - Today Show and Bendigo Bank.  GNBC has donated 1000 beer kegs to hundreds of hotels and venues nationally to stage fundraisers over the weekend of October 25-27.
All you need to do is buy a beer and you’ll be helping a farmer.
All funds raised through Let it Pour will be donated to a drought relief fund organised by Rotary Australia and administered by Bendigo Bank.
Find your local Let it Pour event or donate at: letitpour.com.au

You will agree that having 540 Bendigo Bank branches, now 700 pubs/clubs (more to come) and Channel 9 involved will be a great promotion for the Drought Fundraiser and Rotary. We represent the community. We represent Rotary in Australia.
