For the second week in a row the club has gathered to dismantle a playground, transfer it to Rotary Donations in Kind, and load it into an overseas shipping container. The playground at Nettleton Park Glen Iris is now snugly tucked into the container ready for shipment to  Kathmandu, where it will be reassembled by Rotarians -  to the delight of local children, many of whom will never have seen a playground.
 
Members of the Rotary Club of Glenferrie combined with members from the Rotary Club of Camberwell and the Rotaract e-Club of Melbourne to complete the project. The Rotary Overseas Recycled Playground project was established and is led by the Rotary Club of Flemington Kensington. To see pictures of the harvesting of the playground, click on 'Read more.."
 
A very big thank you to Bunnings Warehouse in Hawthorn for their generous donation to the club of an impact driver, complete with two rechargeable batteries and a battery charger. The impact driver is an essential item of equipment for the dismantlement of playground equipment as part of the club's new Rotary Overseas Recycled Playgrounds (RORP) project. Thank you also goes to Simon Messenger for liaising with Bunnings to obtain the gift. Bunnings are strong supporters of community organisations, including the Rotary Club of Glenferrie, as well as being a great place to buy an impact driver! Thank you from all of us at Rotary Glenferrie.
There were some familiar faces and some new faces at the Boroondara Farmers Market on Saturday February 20th and what welcome faces they were. PP Charles Tran is back on deck as energetic as ever after a period of absence teaching north of the Yarra. Friend of Rotary Simon Messenger who, by now, will be familiar to members, was a real asset on the entrance gate, where patrons were greeted with smiles and good humour. The market was well attended by some fine stallholders with an outstanding array of wonderful produce, but patron numbers are still below the pre-Covid levels. People will wander back eventually no doubt, lured to Patterson Reserve by the fresh produce, friendly faces and rich variety of products. Past Mayor of Boroondara Coral Ross was spotted among the stalls, shopping with a keen eye. Shopping with friends. A great way to spend a Saturday morning. The next market will be on Saturday March 6th.

Upcoming Events
Rotary membership helps you build lasting friendships, strong networks, additional skills and greater confidence.
Programs often start with just one motivated person seeing an opportunity and then making it happen with the support of Rotary's global resources behind them.
Rotary will celebrate 100 years of making a difference in Australia and New Zealand in 2021. Join with us to mark this momentous occasion.
