Thanks from Mallacoota

This small painting, inspired by the bushfires around Mallacoota in Victoria, Australia, was given to the Club in appreciation of a donation of 1,000 Australian Dollars to help with the rebuilding of the town.

Back in March 2020 the Club donated 1,000 Australian Dollars to the Rotary Club of Bairnsdale in Mallacoota. Mallacoota was devastated by the bushfires. The donation was effected through one of our members, Janet Steele, then living in Australia and with a local connection to Mallacoota. The small painting by a local artist, and inspired by the bushfires, was given to Janet as a token of thanks to bring back to Bute when she is able to return after all the current restrictions are lifted.
