Rotary friends and friends of Rotary 
The Christmas season is fast approaching and the tradition of Camberwell Rotarians bringing a new unwrapped gift for a child to our Christmas party continues again this year, so please remember to bring a present, this year we are supporting the children from the Asylum Seekers resource centre, if anyone needs any further information, please reach out to Gary Goldsmith
It was terrific after many months to have our first guest speaker present in person to the club, Peter from the Malvern Men’s Shed gave a delightful insight into this valuable resource, managed by volunteers it was amazing to hear all the good work that this organisation has been doing assisting in the well being of men.
Next week we have MICA paramedic Justin presenting on a day in the life of a Paramedic.
The club was buzzing when news broke that our Kemi recently got engaged, Congratulations Kemi and we look forward to meeting your fiancé at the Christmas Party

A shout out to Sparkey Clarkey who recently fell off his ladder and has badly injured himself with a few broken bones, hope you have a speedy recovery, also John Steven recently had another stroke and was in hospital for a few days and has now returned home to recuperate.
Thanks to Anita for sharing those scrumptious treats in celebration of Hanukkah, it’s also often called the Festival of Lights. It was a lovely gesture, and to also get a brief insight into the Jewish celebration marking the rededication of the second temple in Jerusalem.
That’s it from me for this week, have a good week in Rotary, let’s keep connecting & be kind to one another.

The Bert Stevens Award 2021
I was proud to accept, on behalf of the Rotary Club of Camberwell, a certificate of appreciation from the Box Hill Institute for our ongoing support of their apprentice training program represented by the Bert Stevens Apprentice Awards.
In the 2005-2006 Rotary year, our club established the annual Bert Stevens Apprentice Awards to honour our club’s revered charter member and tradesman of many skills, the late Bert Stevens. 
Since then, in conjunction with the Box Hill Institute – Faculty of Trades (formerly known as Box Hill TAFE College), these awards have been made annually to two final year apprentices who were completing their apprenticeships and training despite personal setbacks and/or difficulties. 
Each award has been to a cash amount sufficient to allow the recipient to purchase a suitable kit of tools for their trade. In recent years, each award has been to the value of $1,500.
For the 2021 school year, $3,000 was forwarded to Box Hill Institute to allow these two awards to be presented to  Timothy Hamilton and Zhuozend (Telfair) Li.

Camberwell Sunday Market Roster 2021-22
Thank you all for your responses at our recent meeting.
As you can see, I still need three (3) volunteers for the 26 December, which I know is difficult. If you have any chance at all of doing a three hour stint on this day, please let me know as soon as possible.
I have also marked other days in January where I have a shortfall, once again please check your diaries and let me know your availability.
Thank you for your ongoing support for this important Rotary community program, and important fund raiser for our Club.
