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.

Larry Green was our chairperson for today's club meeting at Cilantro.  Paul Ferguson performed invocation and the toast to Rotary and Australia.  Helen Parker, Charles Rener and Karin Soster joined the meeting via zoom.
Guests included Peter from the R.C of Beaumaris and Margaret, and our guest speakers Chris and Tania from the Moorabbin Proactive Policing Unit.
Plus we had a very important new member induction.........................
A number of members from our Club attended the special luncheon held at the Cape Schanck Resort on Sunday, June 2, 2024.
The event was attended by the RI International President Gordon McInally and his wife Heather, who had generously agreed to "call in" on their way home from the Singapore International Convention.
The invitation was originally extended, and accepted a year ago.
Along with DG Ian, club members who attended were: Club President Ron Brownlees and Marilyn, Linda and Peter O'Brien, Karin Soster and Gary, Jo Impey, Helken Nodrum and Margie Lucas. Unfortuantely, Helen Parker was unable to attend as she has returned from Singapore with Covid and was home in bed feeling very unwell.
