Dandenong Ranges Storm
The storm in the Dandenongs on 9/10 June has been devastating to
many. This past weekend I took an opportunity of visiting some of the
hardest hit areas in the Dandenong area. The number of fallen tress is
astounding and crews were actively clearing roads and repair power
lines. Well done to those who have contributed to RAWCS already,
and I encourage others to consider a donation to assist people in our
own Rotary District. Please contact Alan Lunghusen if you can assist
in any way. The link to the RAWCS page to make a donation is here
