Patrick Rowan & Associates ladies morning tea with Linda Beilharz

Patrick Rowan & Associates Geelong Ladies Morning Tea

It’s on again! Now in its 5th year, Patrick Rowan & Associates is pleased to be hosting a ladies morning tea with another amazing guest presenter.

What an incredible lady Linda Beilharz is.

She’s spent 166 days camping on ice, has experienced all kinds of weather including sun dogs (not exactly sure what that is – something to do with glowing spots around the sun?), she’s felt minus 56 degrees with a wind chill factor (brrr!), battled blizzards (one brave lady!) and seen endless horizons.

It’s a huge white world and Linda Beilharz OAM is incredibly the first Australian woman to cross both the North and South poles on foot.

“I was thinking, what on Earth are we doing?”

“You just have to take one step after another to get there.”

It was times like these Linda said she had to dig “pretty deep”.

“There certainly were times when all I could do was just think about the next step and not worry about the big picture too much, because that was too daunting.” 

Hailing from Bendigo we can’t wait to hear more about Linda’s adventures in Geelong on 3rd December.

Oh, and did we mention, the RGYC do a delicious morning tea too.

And it’s for a good cause.

Proceeds go to the Christ Church meals program. Long time supporters of this program, the money donated is used to purchase milk for the many children who come for a meal.

Those who come for a meal are welcomed regardless of their circumstances and for some the meal at Christ Church may be their main meal of the day; for others it is their only meal.

The Meals Program is well known and is a respected contribution to welfare in Geelong.
