Final Garden for 2021 with students
 
After a stop/start year with limited school involvement due to lockdowns, it was a pleasure to work with Ruyton students tackling a challenging garden in Deepdene last Friday.
This was the final student session for 2021. With guidance from Ann K, Tak, Friend-of-Rotary Ian and Geoff H two hours of weeding gave the disabled resident something to smile about. These before and after shots tell the story.

Rotary Four Way Test
Rotarians live by the Four Way Test:
 
Is it the Truth?
Is it Fair to all concerned?
Will it build Goodwill and better Friendships?
Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?
Rotary is dedicated to causes that build international relationships, improve lives and create a better word to support our peace efforts and end polio forever.
