The official launch of the 2017 Riverina BMW Food and Wine Festival took place Monday afternoon at Riverina BMW showrooms. The selection of the major beneficiary has been completed, and this year Wollundry will be supporting the Riverina Cancer Care centre.

Other Wollundry Rotarians in attendance were Tim McMullen, Doug Conkey, Bob Willis, David Byfield Paul Milde, David Hodge and Paul Murray. Photo by Tim McMullen.
The centre opened in 2002, and was supported by Wollundry Rotary in its initial fundraising phase. It can no longer meet the requirements of all patients needing cancer treatments, and will effectively double in size.

An update from Kae re your Thailand kitchen project.
The school had a great crop of fish and rice. Kae said they have rice for the next 12 months for the school and were able to sell the excess rice as well as the fish.
The money will be used to buy more school kitchen supplies and equipment.
Congratulations, you guys have made it possible for this community to feed their school children in a self sustaining way.
Many thanks for your generosity
