On Wednesday 14th July, new member Bev Lowe updated us on what she and her husband John are currently doing in the community in their ‘retirement’.
After years of full-on community service through community services they established – firstly through Manna Inc and then Moort Care – they are currently:
- feeding the poor two days a week, which means Bev is still cooking for the masses;
- distributing bags with $20 worth of basic supplies in which is adequate to feed an individual for 3 days; and
- distributing blankets .
We are delighted that Bev has found time to join the Rotary Club of Freshwater Bay. We have supported her from the early days of the Club by fitting out a kitchen at the Maddington Primary school so that children could have breakfasts prior to school, mothers could be taught nutrition and industrious students made and sold burgers to local businesses.
