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.

Volunteers work to keep the community of Kingston, Ontario, healthy and safe

Rotary and Rotaract members in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, have been volunteering at the region’s largest COVID-19 vaccination center, helping to facilitate the process of immunizing hundreds of people per day.
President Geoff greeted guests and members. He encouraged members to forward suggestions on events/projects to promote Rotary 100 in Australia.
Helen introduced the guest speaker Harry Moffitt.
Harry was in the SAS and has written a book “Eleven Bats” which is a story of combat, cricket and the SAS. He said that when he was a 20 year old and contemplating joining SAS, he could not find any Australian books on the subject on how to join or the training involved. He had to resort to books from the UK, US and Germany.This was the reason he decided to write a book to inspire the young on what is involved and what to expect.

Tips to have that talk

by Elizabeth Schroeder
As COVID-19 vaccinations are administered around the globe, you’ve probably seen your social media feeds fill up with joyful vaccine selfies and excited appointment updates. Chances are, you also have someone in your life who’s skeptical. Most of us do — and that has public health officials concerned.
This morning's guest speaker was Nicole Lewis Jacobs, the "Soup Angel"
We met at Cilantro for the first time since COVID 19 and the Currawongs flew out of the gum trees greeting with their distinctive beautiful musical call. Even better, Tony and Sossi greeted us with our favourite coffee, we felt as if we had come home. We had! As we meet at 7:00 am we discovered we were the first club in Australia to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Rotary in our beautiful country.
