Fun for all the family is planned for the grand opening of the Rotary 100 Playground at Yarra Bank Reserve on August 8th, with children's entertainment, food and drink and, lots of music on the way to make it a sparkling day.
Acknowledging the significance of the Yarra bank area to First Nations peoples, a smoking ceremony and welcome to country is planned, to be offered by the traditional owners of the land, the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation.
The Playground Opening, featuring the unique Rotary interactive play sculpture, will begin a series of events in Boroondara aimed at raising the profile of Rotary, attracting new members and celebrating 100 years to date of Doing Good in the World. It is hoped that every Rotarian will bring their families and friends, and especially the little ones, to experience the Grand Opening and the playground. So be sure to spread the word!
The playground will be opened by the Mayor of Boroondara, Cr. Garry Thompson, who will be joined by DGE Dale Hoy in a ceremony heralding a celebration of the achievements of the past century, and welcoming the start of the next 100 years.

All club Avenue of Service directors are encouraged to attend one of two District Grants Management Seminars, scheduled for later this month. Foundation grants are an excellent way to secure extra funding for club service projects, either in Australia or overseas, and attendance at a seminar is a prerequisite for club qualification.
This year's Grant Seminars will be held online with a choice of two optional dates. Each session will run for 90 minutes.
For the club to qualify for a Rotary Foundation Grant in the 2021-2022 Rotary year, at least one club member must attend one of the two sessions.
Thursday June 17 at 7.30pm  or Sunday June 20 at 3.00pm

Be quick to avoid missing out on these extra special limited edition collectables.
It may have been Lockdown, but everyone is still allowed to shop and there's no better way to do it than in the fresh air, well away from recirculated bugs and communal carry baskets! 
And it seems that many people in Boroondara and Stonnington agree, because the market was doing a bustling trade all morning on Saturday May 29th. Despite the greeting Rotarians looking like Darth Vader's deputies, there was a steady stream of shoppers well prepared with their mobile phone apps to check in on the Victorian Government website, and pay their $2 entry charge on Apple Pay or GPay, and enjoy shopping in the open air among friends. What better way to spend a Saturday morning! To see photos from Saturday's market, click on Read More.
