Our District Governor Ross Carlyle and wife Penny visited our Club last Thursday evening.
As well as talking about the Rotary Theme ‘Be The Inspiration’ he spoke about his three challenges for every Rotarian those being 1.The Generation Challenge, 2.The Culture Challenge and 3.The Inspiration Challenge.
Penny Carlyle also gave us a challenge concerning items of food and explained that there are many people who need food and during a recent visit to Hobart City Mission it showed that the pantry was nearly bare.
The Hobart City Mission (HCM) has been serving the people of Southern Tasmania for over 165 years. Launceston City Mission has been operating for over 160 years and now supports all local communities in Northern Tasmania.
Items need to be in date and non-perishable. Suitable items would be muesli bars, pasta, food items in ring pull cans such as baked beans, canned meat and fish products, sauces including pour-on pasta sauce, flour, sugar, powdered egg mix, baby formula, long life milk, evaporated milk, powdered milk, oatmeal, noodles and more. Basically, anything that is ready to eat and preferably doesn’t require a can opener. Pet food is also welcome.
Any donations would be much appreciated.
