Visit the Rotary Chadstone/East Malvern Family Fun Day at Central Park and enjoy a great day out with the whole family including your dog. The Family Fun Day is held in conjunction with City of Stonnington Pets in the Park. Experience jumping castles, rides and performances by local choirs and dancing troupes in Stonnington Sounds.
The Family Fun Day (formerly known as the Rotary Carnival) is an annual fund raising activity that has taken a significant place in history of our community providing funds that go directly into community projects. In its 37th year, this Family Fun Day is sure to not disappoint the families that return year on year.
This year there will be plenty of fun for the kids with rides, mini golf and food stalls. Where else can you get fairy floss? For Mums, Dads and Grand Parents we have plant and second-hand books stalls as well as great selection of items on offer in our silent auction.
Our Rotarians are the barbeque experts and will be on hand turning sausages in our sausage sizzle tent.
Included in the Rotary Family Fun Day will be The Sounds of Stonnington featuring the live music and entertainment on stage. The program will run this year for 5 solid hours, and will include local school groups, local dance groups.
The Rotary Chadstone/East Malvern are proud to present one of the most successful club community programmes initiated by our club - BusyFeet.
BusyFeet is a program for kids with significant mental and physical disabilities to learn the magic of dance with 1-1 volunteer tuition. Sounds of Stonnington will give these children an opportunity to showcase what the locals can do, and to give kids a “performance experience”.
Many families in the Stonnington area are going back to 'real trees' with the Rotary Club of Chadstone/East Malvern providing the community with freshly cut Christmas trees this Christmas.
