Covid-19 Information

In the face of the daily news items available through all forms of Australian media channels and to assist members to keep themselves informed of the status of the Covid-19 virus, we are providing the link below which provides comprehensive advice and information to the community by the Australian Government advisory services. The site is updated daily. We trust this will provide appropriate information for all members.

Cruising Butterflies has been rescheduled to October 2020

Dear Members,

In consultation with Kalparrin executives and Rotary Club of Melville, we have resolved to postpone the Cruising Butterflies activities on 5th April. The decision has be made as a consequence of the Covid-19 virus and the risk to children who have low immune systems of contracting the virus which may have severe consequences and complicate their health conditions more so than is usually the case. Kalparrin, Rotary Club of Melville and SoPYC are proposing to conduct the event in October 2020 although this will be subject to the impact of the virus.

Thank you to all the boat owners who have offered their vessels and to the volunteers and staff who so willingly offer their time to make the event a highlight of the children’s lives and the members who have grown to know the families through the event over the past four years .

We hope that you will all be involved again later this year once the crisis facing us has passed.

We wish you all good health in the months to come and look forward to seeing you on the water with the Kalparrin kids and their families.

David Harries
General Manager
