Australian newcomer Fern Linden has discovered the many joys of residing in Bali and particularly in Ubud where she has built a villa for her family to enjoy. She has been a Rotarian for 25 years having been a member of 4 different clubs. Two were based in Sydney and more recently she belonged to eClub One which is based in Colorado. However, Fern plans to spend more time in Ubud and hopes to contribute as much as possible to local projects and become more involved in community activities. Fern is now retired but her career included working in university administration, secondary teaching, public service management and counselling in non-government organisations.
