Hello there and welcome to our wonderful and vibrant Rotary Club.
We are to the south east of Melbourne, Victoria, about 18km from the city, meeting each Wednesday morning, currently on Zoom, details here.
We number 37 active members and our main Club activity and fundraiser is the running of the Bentleigh Sunday Market.
We are very proud of the contribution we make to our local communities of Glen Eira and Kingston, and to the wider world, either directly or because we are part of the wonderful worldwide organisation of Rotary.
If you are at all interested in giving a little back to your community and making new friends and being part of Rotary, please contact us or join us at one of our weekly meetings. You will be made to feel very welcome.

TRIBUTE TO ANZACS - John Mason
To commemorate our ANZACS John performed the Ode of Remembrance by reciting stanzas from the poem For the Fallen by Laurence Binyon.  "Lest we Forget".

There was no guest speaker for today's meeting and provided an opportunity to discuss other matters - namely, our wonderful BMC market - our fund raiser that has been going strong for over 40 years and never fails us.  We are very lucky.  
Last Thursday evening a number of members attended the End Polio fundraising evening held by the Rotary Club of Springvale City.
What an amazing evening this is, held at Maxim's Saigon Restaurant in Springvale.
I have already posted a story on the District 9810 site here.
From our Club we had President Ron and Marilyn, Peter and Linda O'Brien, Helen Nodrum, Margie Lucas, Tim Lynch, Jo Impey.
A special thanks, on behalf of (my) Helen to Linda O'Brien, Sam Langridge and Ron Brownlees for donating prizes to the raffle which raised $1,265.
