The playground at restful Nettleton Park, Glen Iris will be the first playground to be harvested by Glenferrie Rotarians for shipping to children in developing countries.
International Service Director Mark Howlett is finalising plans for the harvesting of the first two playgrounds in Boroondara, slated for shipment to Sri Lanka under the Rotary Overseas Recycled Playgrounds Project. The playground equipment at Nettleton Park Glen Iris will be harvested the week commencing February 15th, followed by the Pridmore Park, Hawthorn playground a week later. In both cases, help is needed to dismantle the playground equipment, load it into the Donations in Kind Truck and ship it out to the DIK warehouse in West Footscray for loading into a container.
The Rotary Overseas Recycled Playground project brings big smiles to little faces in far off countries. Please volunteer to be part of this wonderful project. Contact Mark Howlett now if you can help. Mark's phone number is in the Member's Directory, on your ClubRunner app., or grab him at the BBQ on Tuesday.
