The Club celebrated its 37th Birthday at the meeting on 4 May with a wonderful evening of entertainment by Brian Nankervis, recollections by our first President and some jokes by members (in deference to world laughter day coming up soon). Three members were recognised with sapphires to their existing Paul Harris Fellow Awards. A delicious cake was cut and enjoyed by all. A very happy night!!
A Team from the Club recently returned from a visit to the Solomon Islands where they undertook instruction in sewing machine maintenance and sewing techniques. Many machines were repaired and much knowledge imparted.
Being a bloke generally means you don’t discuss your feelings or deal too well with your physical, mental and spiritual health. This was identified as a serious issue during the 90s in Australia, and the Men’s Shed Movement emerged sprouting thousands of sheds across Australia and the world. Now Rotary Club of North Balwyn (RCNB) has taken its angle grinder to the workbench to build a men’s shed on North Balwyn Bowls Club land.
“We know that older men who’ve become disconnected from community life through factors such as retirement, illness, disability or unemployment, have poorer health outcomes than those who enjoy close community connections. We are excited to launch this project in conjunction with the City of Boroondara,” says Tony Hart, Chairman of RCNB Men’s Shed Project.
The shed opens September 2017 and RCNB welcomes donations and handymen who would like to be involved. Please Garth Symington on 0419 519 899 for more information.
Mongolian Peace Camp - A Youth Exchange Experience
An exciting inaugural program will see nine secondary students from the Boroondara area having an enriching three weeks in Mongolia. In July, the students will travel with two RCNB members to be immersed in the culture in Mongolia’s capitol city, Ulan Bataar, and various regional areas. One week will be spent at the Mongolian International Children’s Camp where they will foster connections with students from many other countries and engage in activities focused on promoting world peace. This is run in conjunction with the National Authority of Children under the auspices of the Mongolian Government. A reciprocal visit is planned for Mongolian students to visit Melbourne in January 2018.
