There'll be music and laughter, face painting and a magician, a hoopist extraordinaire and much much more at Yarra Bank Reserve Sunday August 8th 2021, 12 noon to 3pm. So bring the family and enjoy a Sunday afternoon at play. Official opening at 1pm by the Mayor of Boroondara, Cr. Garry Thompson, and Rotary District 9800 Governor Dale Hoy.
 
 
The theme for the new playground project was stated quite casually, early in the planning cycle, by Benjamin Gilbert of Agency of Sculpture, creators of the Rotary interactive play sculpture. Benjamin said: "The play sculpture is meant to demonstrate that when people work together they can create something magnificent". The plaque will be unveiled by the Mayor of Boroondara at the Family Fun Day on Sunday August 8th.
President Mark Ellis AM welcomed his new board at Changeover on Tuesday July 13th in a celebration of the club's accomplishments and what it means to be a Rotarian.

We welcomed five new members and one past member returning to the Rotary family at its club meeting on Tuesday June 30th, just in time for the new year. The new Rotarians reflect diverse cultural and vocational backgrounds and life experience that will greatly strengthen the club as it moves forward. So welcome to Rotary you lot!

How to Reduce Your Energy Bills and Stay Warm
How to Reduce Your Energy Bills and Stay Warm

Tim Forcey trained as a chemical engineer and worked for decades in the oil and gas and petrochemical industries with Exxon Mobil, BHP, and others. In more recent times, Tim published renewable energy research with the University of Melbourne where he showed how Australians could save money by heating with their reverse cycle air cons instead of using gas. As you will hear, in order to spread the word about these useful home energy economics, Tim went on to found and co-administer the 32,000 member facebook group 'My Efficient Electric Home'. Tim also assists individual Victorians in their homes as a home comfort and energy advisor.

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 celebrates 100 years of making a difference in Australia and New Zealand in 2021. Join with us to mark this momentous occasion.
