Rotary Lamingtons ….?!
Did you know …. 21st July is National Lamington Day?  D9675 has come up with a Master Plan to make this an annual fundraising opportunity for Rotary Clubs.
No, you do not need to make the lamingtons! Some of us will have memories of messy chocolate icing and coconut, they will instead be sourced from local bakeries (preferably small businesses) to support the local community.  The idea is that local businesses buy them for their employees by way of appreciation and Rotarians facilitate the ordering, pickup and delivery on the day.
In order for this to happen in our District, we need a Club or person willing to be the co-ordinator … is this for you?
It looks and sounds like a delicious initiative and one that will promote new membership, both personal and corporate, for our clubs as connections are made with the business sector.
Contact DGE Ineke Oliver ( if you would like to see the Master Plan, it really is quite impressive!
