Around 900 Year 8 students from 6 local secondary schools, 520 sausages, 31 loaves x 17 slices of bread, 4 kg onions, 3 litres of assorted sauces and 8 Drouin Rotarians.
This was the recipe for the Bar-B-Que Drouin Rotary Club provided for the launch of the Live4Life program held at Lardner Park on Thurs 4th Aug.
Live4Life is a health promotion charity that operates across six rural and regional Victorian communities. It aims to improve the lives of young people through mental health education and suicide prevention.
The Rotary Club was asked to sponsor the event and did so with a $3350 contribution. Organisers then asked a number of service organisations in the area to help out cooking 1000 sausages at the launch. Only Drouin Rotary answered the call for support on the day.
Sounds like hard work. It was, but it was also good fun. “It was just as well we started cooking by 10:30 am because the students arrived a bit early for lunch and were only just able to keep up. Unfortunately a few missed out on a snag, but we could not have managed to do any more.” said Service Projects Director Bill Petschack.
And the members who volunteered were particularly impressed with the courtesy, politeness and general behaviour of all the students they encountered. Congratulation to them.
