The 7 Rotary and Rotaract presidents met last Wednesday to further progress drought relief schemes. RAWCS has set out strict conditions on how the drought appeal funds will be expended and accounted for. The clubs decided that a web site is to be developed to assist in communicating and educating for clubs and drought assistance schemes. Our club drought relief committee is to make application for funding for the development of the web site.
The club wish Norma Gray and Frank Fuller all the best for the upcoming operations and we hope and pray that all goes well and that they have a speedy recovery.

     Tim became a rural consultant in wagga and then Canberra, where he consulted for politicians,
was with Australian Wool Research and Development and was on the small business committee of
the Reserve Bank of Australia.
       In 2008 Tim sold his farm and did a PHd in Farm Business Risk, and joined the board of
Nuffeld Australia, which sends young farmers around the world to learn and experience other farming systems.
      Tim is now happily retired in Wagga.
