Welcome to the November Report. Yes, it’s only about 6 weeks to go before we can say goodbye to 2020. But behind the masks, more people are beginning to smile and look forward to better things in 2021. Big changes have taken place in November. In the USA, we have a new president and a new beginning. In Victoria, we are coming out of lockdown and restrictions are being eased. In the Rotary club of Templestowe, there is a new chair, as I will now represent our club for the next 4 months.
How has the COVID pandemic affected those less fortunate? Join us as we hear from Sarah Cromie, who joined the St Vincent de Paul Society as Soup Van Operations Manager for Victoria right when the pandemic started. Since joining Vinnies, Sarah has had to pivot the Soup Van program to meet COVID-19 restrictions whilst ensuring food security for our friends on the street, in towers, boarding houses, caravan parks and other insecure accommodation.
