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!!

Doing Good in the World
Our ongoing Gardening project continues to deliver wonderful results as evidenced here with some before and after photos!!
Our Club works with residents in the local area who may need some help with their gardens with the assistance of school students who do much of the manual labour. And the results speak for themselves.
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.
