Rotary District 9700 Supports The O.R.K.


ROTARY District 9700 Governor Elect Fred Loneregan announced at the D9700 Assembly held in Young, N.S.W., on May 4th. that he has made The O.R.K. project his project for 08/09 and that he asked the clubs in his district to support The O.R.K. in his year as District Governor.  DGE Fred set a goal of 200 O.R.K.s for the District to raise.

There was excellent support offered by the Clubs after DGE Fred announced the challenge.  Some ideas canvassed on raising the money to invest in The O.R.K.s included holding an International African night in various Rotary cities and towns in the district.

The money raised by D9700 will go to the Orphan Rescue Kits for the slums of Mathare in Nairobi, Kenya.

John Glassford R.F.F.A. (Australia) thanked DGE Fred and all the Rotarians present for their continued support for the orphans of Africa.
