Both Noel and myself, Bronwynne Bates, have been supporting and volunteering at Umoja Orphanage Kenya a RAWCS Rotary Project for a number of years and we return again in August this year, so we have decided to have a fundraising high tea Saturday 27th July from 12.30 to late afternoon in the community centre at Halcyon Nirimba to take over funds to buy much needed items for the children and the home on this trip.

So, if would like to support one of our passions Ladies (as the men will be doing the waiting and serving) tickets are $25 a head and can be purchased by contacting Bronwynne on 0408 189 650.

There will be a drink on arrival and the bar will also be open, also there will be a door prize, raffles and silent auction for numerous items that have been donated.

As volunteers we pay 100% our own way.
 
So 100% of what is raised at the hightea will be put towards much needed items for the children and home while we are there for the 15 days.
We will be taking photos and videos of what we spend the money on and will give a presentation on our return of our trip.

Thank you for your support.
 
Please RSVP by Wednesday 24 July.
 
The Club held its annual Presidents changeover night on the 27 June 2024.  The theme for the evening was the Magic of Rotary in the 1920’s, a reflection back to when Rotary first started in Australia with the chartering of the Rotary Club of Melbourne in 1921.
 
The outgoing President, Peter Higgs, outlined some of the projects completed by the club and donations given throughout the year and presenting seven PHF awards. He concluded his report by thanking his outgoing Board of Directors. 
 
 
PDG Patrice Robinson then presided over the change of president ceremony with the Collar of Office passing to the new President, David Wallis.
 
 
David thanked the outgoing board for their efforts and introduced the 24/25 Board of Directors. President David briefly outlined his vison for the Club and detailed the Club’s meeting rhythm, ensuring the partners were well informed of the Club’s social calander.
 
 
Having completed the formal part of the evening attendees were entertained by the international guest singer from the Philippines, Angel Perico.  While Angel sang a variety of songs, her rendition of “Wind Beneath my Wings” was particularly moving as it embodied her feelings towards to the Club’s projects within her local community.
 
                                 
 
The evening topped off a successful year for the Club and provided an excellent spring board for the Club’s endeavours for  the new presidential year.
