ROTARY TO THE RESCUE
What happens when you get a group of Claremont Rotaractors together? You get a buzz of happy chattering, laughter and team work. Thank you Luc, Daniel, Cat, David, Jean, Janine, and Rob. Also thanks to Lauren who organised all the volunteers. In the more mature corner, where we were allowed to sit while sealing the packages, were Mom's Mush, Pam, and I. Together we packed 200 really good stationery packs for the children of Khayelitsha who lost everything in the New Year's Day inferno where 4000 were left homeless. I was accused of having poor math skills because there were items over and items short at the end of the packing. My theory is that while women can multitask, the guys where talking. Amina Varachia of Disaster Management, who will distribute the stationery to only the children affected by the fire, organised the Pinelands Town Hall for the day. A big thank you to New Generations for allowing a decent budget to purchase the stationery.
