The Rotary Club of StKilda is going through a very exciting phase at the moment.
We have got off to a flying start and it all is continuing thankfully due to vibrant members and some wonderful projects.
Our Club has begun by selling 2to3 year old computers and making a handsome amount of money that shall be forwarded to charities in our area.
We have sorted and amassed clothing for mothers and babies in PNG. packing of these items will be done in October. This is to help the Highland Foundation.
On election day we raised almost $2000 at a sausage sizzle. Plans are well underway for a major event we are naming Local and Vocal which gives schools the opportunity to show their musical talent and have it recorded in a sound studio and then performing at the Palais Theatre.
We do have other plans and we will announce them as they come up.
Our Club seems to cover most aspect of what is expected but we miss out on New Generations. It would not be difficult for us to be involved with RYPEN where all we need do is find 2 students to go away for a weekend camp under proper supervision and we become responsible for their transport. More about that at our next meeting.
We are achieving interest from people via our website ( thank you Julia ) and our membership is growing with the standard of new rotarians setting the bar high.
I am overseas for the next 6 weeks and Julia is taking the chair. Thanks once again.
I wish you well,
