By Weds 15th Nov - Books needed for Book Swap

Did you know that only a quarter of children in remote indigenous communities have a basic standard of literacy?

And that the Indigenous Literacy Foundation (ILF) is working to change this?

ILF is lifting literacy levels and instilling a life-long love of reading in kids who would otherwise not get this opportunity.

Caroline Adrian is gathering books for a book swap at  her work on Wednesday 22nd November. It will allow staff  to find a book they like and donate a gold coin (or more). All money raised will be donated to the ILF.

What can I do ?

If you have any books that you’d like to donate please bring them along to our club meeting on the 15th November (or earlier) and Caroline will gladly take them from you. 

All books are welcome, including novels, non-fiction, kids’ and coffee table books but just make sure they’re in reasonable condition.

Know that your assistance with this request will 'make a difference'.

BusyFeet makes a real difference

THIS IS A MUST READ!!

When we opened BusyFeet in Feb 2012 as a Community Project for Chadstone/East Malvern, we wanted to achieve a program designed to create a special place for Children with a Disability through Dance & Music.  It would be conducted in a fun and safe environment, a place where everyone feels special and is respected for their individual ability. Not only did we achieve that but have assisted other Clubs to create their own BusyFeet.  This could not have happened without the wonderful support of the Volunteers who have happily guided and danced with the Children over the years. There have been many thank you's over time but this one says absolutely everything that BusyFeet stands for.  All thanks go to our Committee and those who have supported us over such a long time

DGE Bronwyn Stephens on the Rotary International Convention

Getting off a plane in one of the busiest airports in America to be greeted by Rotarians in Fluoro vests was very unusual. This Rotary World Convention we were arriving at was to be Rotary on steroids throughout. Over 130 countries were represented, with over 40,000 Rotarians attending, and so many of them from African and Indian nations. Hundreds of Filipinos, and 26 Aussies from District 9800. Registering for the convention at the airport made life easy and that set the tone for the hospitality.
