Sam Hicks and Mike Dalmau gave an outstanding talk on the Yea and District community bank.
Since its beginning in 2010 it has invested $203,500 in community investment.
A highlight has been the Kids Teaching Kids Program held annually for the last three years. They have also supported activity and projects undertaken by Ambulance Ambulance Support, South Cathedral Landcare, Alexandra Community Shed, Alexandra Secondary College, Murrindindi East 3A and many other groups. Rotary Alexandra received their support during bushfire recovery and at our Annual Easter Art shows. 
Sam and Mike pointed out the importance of local employment and investing in local events and community projects.
Thanks for an enlightening talk.
