Club News
You are all invited to the Gala Opening of our Club's major R100 Project: The Yarra BankReserve Playground, featuring the remarkable Rotary-funded interactive play sculpture.
Save the date 8th August, commencing midday. Bring your partner, spouse, children, grandchildren and friends and make it a real Family Fun Day.
Our clubs, the Rotary clubs of Glenferrie, Camberwell, Hawthorn and Canterbury have combined to mark the 100th Anniversary of the establishment of Rotary in Australia with a unique gift to the Boroondara community, assisted by a District Local Grant from The Rotary Foundation.
The new playground at beautiful Yarra Bank Reserve Hawthorn, landscaped by Jeavons Landscape Architects, will feature as it's centrepiece, a unique interactive play sculpture crafted by internationally renowned playground sculptor Benjamin Gilbert of Agency of Sculpture in Yackandandah, a gift from our clubs to the community to mark the Rotary Centenary in Australia. This unique sculpture captures the spirit of this place, once the site of Palmer's Ferry that joined the City of Richmond with the Parish of Boroondara until the mid 19th Century, when a wooden bridge was built.
Fun for all the family is planned for the grand opening of the Rotary 100 Playground at Yarra Bank Reserve on August 8th commencing at 12:00pm, with children's entertainment, food and drink and, lots of music on the way to make it a sparkling day.
This Playground redevelopment is an R100 project in conjunction with the City of Boroondara, with the Rotary Clubs of Glenferrie and Camberwell as major contributors, and well as the Rotary Clubs of Canterbury and North Balwyn.
The Playground Opening, featuring the unique Rotary interactive play sculpture, will begin a series of events in Boroondara aimed at raising the profile of Rotary, attracting new members and celebrating 100 years of Doing Good in the World. It is hoped that every Rotarian will bring their families and friends, and especially the little ones, to experience the Grand Opening and the playground. So be sure to spread the word!
There have been many significant achievements in 21 years: DIK have a new Store, new equipment, and an increased capacity to assist our stakeholders to help others. We also wish to highlight achievements over the last 21 years and thank the people and organisations who have made this possible. Donations in Kind operations in other states conduct similar activities. Rotary’s involvement in this area started over 50 years ago and in 1987 Donations in Kind was established as the nation-wide Rotary project. 
Achievements to date:
Our very dear member Kerry Anne has compiled the Camberwell Rotary Cook Book. With a stocked pantry and time on your hands during the many Lockdowns, it is time to try out some new and interesting recipes. Buy your own copy for $20 (see Kerry Anne).

Rotary membership helps you build lasting friendships, strong networks, additional skills and greater confidence.
Programs often start with just one motivated person seeing an opportunity and then making it happen with the support of Rotary's global resources behind them.
Rotary will celebrate 100 years of making a difference in Australia and New Zealand in 2021. Join with us to mark this momentous occasion.
