Over the weekend of 22-24 August 20 members of Caringbah Rotary visited Lake Conjola and met with members of the Milton-Ulladulla Rotary Club.
The weekend began with an afternoon tea at the Conjola Recovery Centre, run by Peter and Lindy Dunn. It was commented that capable people co-ordinating activities on the ground made such a huge difference to the initial response.
In Lake Conjola there was one road in, one road out and it was blocked.
The role of the Recovery Centre came about post the fire when donations began flooding in and they focussed on distributing those items. One thing that was evident was that cash/voucher donations are much more practical and also supports the local area.
Our Club was thanked for the vans and the impact of these on the lives of the recipients was explained.
Rotarians from Milton-Ulladulla joined us for dinner at the local Club.
A meeting was held the next day with Milton-Ulladulla Rotary to discuss potential future projects, followed by a family BBQ.
