The Rotary market at Ford Park in October raised over $1200 through the wishing wells for communities affected by the recent Hurricane Matthew in Haiti which devastated the Caribbean island nation.
Merimbula Rotary president, Gai Byrne, thanked the community for its generous support and advised that Rotary will top up the funds to $1500. Ms Byrne noted the latest situation shows 2.1 million people have been affected, including almost 900,000 children and the death toll stands at 546. With extensive flooding, mudslides and damage to infrastructure, the scale of the disaster is difficult to comprehend and Rotary International will play an important role in providing humanitarian assistance.
Bombala Rotary Choir under the direction of Klaus Zimmer will perform at Merimbula Uniting Church Hall on Sunday, November 27 at 2pm. The performance will feature a selection of songs from their 2015 A Capella Christmas CD as well as other favourites. CDs available on the day would make a great Christmas present.
There is a $10 entry fee which includes afternoon tea. There will also be a cake stall. All funds raised will go to Jigamy Farm/Bundian Way youth training project and to Bombala Rotary Choir.
Tickets are available at the door or from Tura Beach Op Shop phone 0409 198 747.

‘Interwoven’ is a group exhibition that brings together weavers, basket makers and creators from the Bega Valley and beyond.
The creators are responding to the ‘Interwoven’ theme and possess great patience, skill and knowledge of their techniques and materials. The artists use a variety of materials such as steel, grass, bark, wool, wood as well as wire and recycled materials. These innovative makers are always experimenting with fibers - if it's flexible; someone is probably weaving it.
The weavers, basket makers and creators from the Bega Valley include Gabrielle Powell, Cathy Jarratt, Rhonda Ayliffe, Gabrielle McGrath, Trish Castillo, Noe Lumby, Claudia Tasche, Hilary Peterson, Nancy Brunton, Sharon Stevens, Robyn Levey, Steve Stafford joined by Roslyn Holmes Batemans Bay, Meredith Peach Moss Vale, Jenny Manning and Ann McMahon from Canberra.
