Rotary Club of Chadstone East Malvern

What's on this week in the Chaddy Chatter 24th July 2017

Enjoy reading the Chaddy Chatter for Week 3.


Tree Planting Day - Sunday 30th July

We joined the Friends of Gardiners Creek Valley and Stonnington Council for this community planting event. 


Chadstone Craft Market was a great success!

What a fabulous Craft Market we had! 

Over 40 stalls on show!!!! Lots of visitors and quite possibly our best Chadstone Craft Market to date.

Thank you to our Stall holders, thank you to our visitors and thank you to the Rotarians for making this wonderful quarterly event possible. Special thanks to Paul Rake for all the work he puts in over the months in advance, and Tracey F for her amazing marketing - it really made a difference! 

Make sure to put the Saturday 11th November in your diary now for the next Chadstone Craft Market that is sure to be even bigger and better



BusyFeet makes a real difference


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


Birthing Kits

Someone asked at the Club meeting on Wednesday night as to where the birthing kits would go - please see map. One of the identified projects was with Rotary in Nigeria (it is shown on the map).


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.


Your Used Stamps will help End Trachoma in Australia

We did it! The target was $10,000 of sales of used stamps! And we achieved $10,005 for EndTrachoma by 2020!!

Please save your used stamps and bring them to our weekly meetings a we start a new year. 

Trachoma is the leading cause of infectious blindness in the world!! And Australia is the only first world country with cases of Trachoma.

Your used stamps will raise money to help us End Trachoma in Australia.
