In this Education and Literacy month, the Coolamon Rotarians have demonstrated both a commitment to literacy and community development by supporting a project initiated by Rtn Myfanwy Collette. With the production of the only Community Newsletter - the Coolamon Community Chronicle - Rotarians are partnering with other local organisations to share local news, community information, stories and services.
And what better way to provide this service than with the local high school students who have prepared a whole issue. The Rotarians collect advertising and the Shire Council collects info, allows use of the Library for production, and distributes the Chronicle. This is a great example of a number of Rotary values and focus areas coming together to serve humanity.
The Chronicle is definitely meeting a need; after only two issues a Library patron said: "Its about time, it should have happened a long time ago!" For more details contact Myfanway on
