It is hard to believe half the Rotary year has passed already.  Here is a recap of our last six months.

Volunteer of The Year

Congratulations to Bernie Smith - Boroondara Volunteer of the Year!!

The awards are a way to celebrate what unites us as a community and to thank those local citizens who continue to dedicate their time and expertise to making life better for Boroondara residents.

The Volunteer of the Year Award was awarded to Bernie Smith who, for the past seven years, was the driving force behind the development of the recently established North Balwyn Men’s Shed.

Well done Bernie.

Lotus Education in Laos

Great news!  Rotary have donated funding to provide support for ten Lotus girls to attend a six week Vocational training program in 2018.

Each year the Lotus girls must pass their exams to progress to the next school year. Formative data is gathered to help determine those girls who are ‘at risk,’ of human trafficking and decide if vocational training may be the best viable option. Discussions ensure that the needs of the girls are valued holistically. Not all girls aspire to complete a higher education in the city of Savannakhet, located one hour away so vocational training is an important viable option for the Lotus girls and much safer than forced labour and prostitution. With funding from Rotary, ten girls will do an  8 week vocational training and life skills course at Sengsavang, Savannakhet where they will make informed responsible  decisions regarding their future education and or career paths.

Mens Shed Update

The North Balwyn has now been built. Located adjacent to the North Balwyn Bowls Club, the Shed is the result of a strong partnership between Council, the North Balwyn Rotary Club and the North Balwyn Bowls. It will offer a variety of activities including woodwork, basic computing, restoration, painting, metalwork and cooking. The Shed will be a place to drop in for a cup of tea and meet others and would like to work with other community groups and welcomes any new ideas.

VAME Catering

 A most successful catering event was held over the weekend of 15/16 July.  This was at the Victorian Miniatures Exhibition where we served a huge variety of food ranging from soup to sandwiches, fresh scones, vanilla slices all enhanced by delicious coffee.  The event raised approximately $3,000 which will go towards our Club projects.  Thank you to everyone for your hard work!!
