At 10.00am on Saturday 11/01/2020 George Deen the President of the Rotary Club of Archerfield arrived with another semitrailer tanker containing 24,000lt of potable water and was welcomed by Fran Hodgson the President of Stanthorpe Rotary and Past District Governor Jitendra Prasad.

PDG Jitendra had arrived early in the morning with Rotarians from the Brisbane International Rotary Club, an energetic team that cooked and provided in excess of 350 meals of delicious butter chicken – this was distributed to the recipients as they collected their allocation of water for the day. Brisbane International Rotary also delivered two truckloads of bottled drinking water containing in excess of 900 packs.

An article written by our club secretary PP Lester Drew covering the event in detail is attached after the photographs. This project is a good example of Rotary clubs (Archerfield, Brisbane International and Stanthorpe) connecting and working together to assist in an area of need!!!
