Tom Farrell President of the Rotary Club of Alexandra announces that at a special Board meeting that the  Rotary Club of Alexandra  a Bush Fire Relief Fund was opened with a contribution from the Club of $4000.  Tom said the impact of large fires on communities is only too real to members of the Rotary Club of Alexandra who were responsible for the effective distribution of over $700 000 after the 2009 fires.  The Rotarians put in thousands of hours to ensure those in need received some help. The Alexandra Rotary Club fire relief fund will concentrate first on supporting Rotary Club of  Wodonga-Belvoir  as these funds are going directly to the Corryong/Cudgewa Communities and the fencing effort of the 9790 Fencing team lead by Alan Stafford to replace boundary fencing.   As with all Rotary Club appeals 100% of all moneys donated will go to the cause with the Rotary Club of Alexandra covering any administration and other on costs.
