BusyFeet Concert

The BusyFeet annual concert held on Sunday 19th November was a roaring success. The children enjoyed dancing to the music including the Wiggles and Grease, to an appreciative audience of parents, carers and Rotarians.

Help kids in Vanuatu for as little as $13
Simply buy a book of 10 tickets for just $13.00, and you will make a difference.
If you win one of the 10 prizes on offer, you can decide how you would like your prize distributed in Vanuatu. It could go to the hospital, a random needy family, broken up into smaller gifts, womens centre or any other option of your choice….
The funds that we make are all put back into the charity to help with ongoing costs for storage, the container fees, and items that need to be purchased in Vanuatu for specific schools once there in January 2018. 

 See Tracey Farnworth for your book of tickets if you are able to help. :)

Open garden fundraiser for Worawa Aboriginal College
Caroline attended an open garden at ‘Ridgefield’ located in Coldstream on Sunday 6th November. The country garden is 1.2ha bordering a vineyard with beautiful views in all directions. It was designed by Robert Boyle in 1997 and although the garden has evolved in response to the climate and the tastes of the local wildlife, the bones of the garden still bear his hallmark today. Elegant walkways lead down a terraced hillside, making the most of beautiful outlooks, yet providing sufficient wind breaks to afford some protection to the garden.  In the formal part of the garden there are neat box hedges, generous plantings of roses, salvias and penstemmon and clipped westringia balls. The roses have thrived so much that some 450 are a picture in spring and autumn.
The open garden weekend was a fund raiser for Worawa Aboriginal College to build memorial garden (see attached) it’s an initiative from Richmond Rotary Club. Richmond Rotary President is looking to extend an invitation to our President to organize a joint meeting. There’s possibilities of joining forces with Richmond Rotary Club regarding the Worawa Aboriginal  Project. The Worawa Students did a special performance to say ‘Thank-you’ for all the support they have received towards the memorial garden, they are hoping to receive around $5,000 towards this initiative.
