Quota supports the local community and the international community as shown by recent events in our Quota calendar.
Recently, President Wendy Smith attended an assembly at Palmers Island Public School to present a very deserving student with a Random Act of Kindness certificate and book voucher. Staff at Palmers Island selected Max as being worthy of this award because he has shown that it is Kool to be Kind. His father who attended the presentation told Quota “It’s the best award ever!” RAK awards are being awarded by Quota at the 11 schools across the Lower Clarence on an ongoing basis.
Internationally, Quota supports other Quota Clubs to support the disadvantaged in their communities through the Hand to Hand project. Quota of Lower Clarence holds a function each year to raise money to send beyond our shore. This year International Officer, Vicki Fleming, organised a Wine Tasting and Warm Food night at the home of member Denise Gillies. Guest speaker was Dr Mere Vauaris whose topic was ‘health is wealth’ including her practice years in Fiji and in Australia and the differences in health between the two countries. Over $800 was raised which will be sent off to Hand to Hand projects. Quota wishes to thank Yamba Fair Butchery and Yamba Fair Bakery for their kind donations and those who attended to make it such a successful night.
Don’t forget to put Saturday 1st October in your diary when Quota will once again hold The Craft Fair at Yamba Bowling Club. It is a ONE day event this year so make sure you turn up on the Saturday. Quota will be supporting Disabled Surfing through the money raised in the raffle for this event.
Quota meets at Yamba Bowling Club boardroom at 5:30 on 2nd Tuesday of each month. After the meeting we enjoy dinner in the Norfolk Bistro. For more information about Quota and its programs, contact Wendy on 6646 9883.
