Our Club has a long tradition in participating in a wide range of projects which benefit our immediate community by the provision of our services and financial support. We have purchased park benches for retirement villages, cleaned up after the devastating Canberra bushfires, built gardens and fences at Greenhills near the Cotter River, and carried out repairs and painting for disabled community housing for L’Arche. Over the years we have enjoyed regular “Handyhelp” days when we clean up the gardens for Canberra’s disadvantaged citizens and cleaned up our own bailiwick on “Clean –up Australia Day”. Nothing is too hard or too complex when it comes to community assistance. It always ends with a hearty barbeque where members and friends reflect on the satisfaction of helping others less privileged, and ”making a difference” in our own community.
