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.
