President's Message
Last week, I received an invitation from David Hobson, the president of the Rotary Club of Balwyn (BRC), to celebrate BRC’s 50th anniversary. BRC is a big name in the Rotary world within Australia and internationally, because it has run the famous Camberwell Sunday Market since 1976. The market has raised $14,000,000 to support a significant range of community and humanitarian projects. 

I admire those Balwyn Rotarians who initiated the Camberwell Sunday Market four years after the club was chartered. They were certainly courageous as businesses in Australia were not permitted to trade on a Sunday back then. Moreover, I admire all Rotarians who have contributed their time and skills to the Camberwell Sunday Market over the past 46 years.
