Rotary SAFE Families has had a very productive month of September. Through the drastic Melbourne lockdown, we have visited ten Rotary Clubs and responding to your wonderful emails reaching out to provide your thoughts and requests for our Resources.  

I give a special mention to the following Clubs for acknowledging Rotary SAFE Families on their website and their weekly Bulletin:

  • Rotary Caroline Springs
  • Rotary Lilydale
  • Rotary EClub of Nomads Australia

Special thank you to the 30 new Club Champions who are now officially providing feedback and latest updates from Rotary SAFE Families to their Club Members.  We now have 65 Rotary Club Champions in Australia.  Please provide a Champion from your Club, if you haven't already done this!

Our next Meeting of Club Champions will be held on Monday, 11 October at 5.00 pm.  If you would like to contribute and/or meet with us, please email Dorothy at: info@rotarysafefamilies.org.au
