Thirty fantastic, community-minded people braved the chilly wind at short notice to support our Australian Anti Ice Campaign Walk today. 
 
It was one of seven simultaneously held around Australia, with walks occurring at two Clubs in our very own District of 9820, even though they are 300 kms apart. 
 
The walk was followed by an informative talk by Tim Sell, which was listened to attentively by Rotarians from Rosebud-Rye, Mt Martha, Mt Eliza and Frankston, participants from Rye RSL, the Rye Bowls Club and friends.
 
The interest shown by these groups to join forces and develop a joint project aimed at supporting those with mental illness, bodes well for the local community and increasing awareness nation-wide. 
 
This is Rotary:
People of action, connecting the world and taking one more step toward a better tomorrow.
