2017 Here we are! Caroline has stepped up to publish our CC whilst our amazing CC Editor is recovering from her surgery. Best wishes for your return Sandi, but for now…relax! Thanks heaps Caroline.

February is a big month as is March – lots of activities and events to fill the calendar.  This Wednesday is our Membership evening – a great opportunity to hear PDG Julie Mason speak and a time to know more about volunteering in the Community.


Vocational Visit  - Monash/ Intensive care

On Wednesday the 18th January the members of the Chadstone / East Malvern Rotary Club wanted to do something different to celbrate Rotary Vocational Services Month.  We elcted to visit the workplace of member Tania Aisbett who works as a Clinical Nurse Educator (CNE) in Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at Monash Medical Centre (MMC). 

And how different was it – not only did we get to hear what Tania does but we got to both see and participate!!
