Volume 67 | Issue 27 | 13 February 2023

We gather together on the lands of the traditional custodians, the Wurundjeri and Woi Wurrung people. We pay our respects to all of Melbourne’s First Peoples, to their ancestors and Elders, and to our shared future together.


I was thrilled for the members’ response to the ‘Each one bring one’ at our last meeting. A total of 9 prospective members attended (pictured above). Thank you to Adrian Campbell, George de Souza, Murray Anderson, Teresa Molella and David Baker for their respective guests. I too brought along a guest.
A selected number of projects were showcased by our committee leaders as part of Club Assembly. This was a fantastic opportunity to share the stories beyond our immediate membership.
I believe this is great way to introduce potential members to the club and build awareness of the worthy projects being delivered by Committees. Not all Committee Chairs were represented. There will be further opportunities to hear from other committees as we continue the fortnightly routine of committee presentations.
The message I’d like to leave with you is ‘each one bring one’ is a call to action for members at each and every club meeting. Please keep this in mind when socialising with friends, colleagues and members. I look forward to meeting your contacts at future meetings.
A reminder that if you are unable to attend meetings, all meetings (except offsite and/or fellowship nights) are broadcasted live on Zoom. Our meetings are essentially hybrid meetings and you and your family are most welcome to attend on Zoom. The Zoom link is published on each meeting Registration invitation or see Secretary Justine.
As advised by Adrian Campbell at our meeting, Myeloma month will be in March this year and on Sunday 5 March at 11:00 am, the national 38mate Walk will be held. This coincides with the Hawthorn Makers Market and the walk will begin at its location at the Boroondara Town Hall, along Glenferrie Road and back. Admission fee is $20 and Myeloma tee shirts and 38mate caps will be available for sale at $20 each. A reminder will be emailed to all members. I hope you can support this worthy cause.
Thank you, Jeevan Vasimalla, Kristina Nicol, Nadia Hamilton, and Nav for assisting at the last Camberwell Sunday Market.
Next week a report of John Walmlsey and Justine Paragreen’s recent visit to Timor Lester to oversee a water project financially supported by a club consortium, will be presented.
Look forward to seeing you then.
President Rotary Club of Camberwell 2022-23
Happy anniversary and a big congratulations to Graeme and Sue Hope, who celebrated a wonderful 50 years of marriage on February 2nd.
Graeme and Sue, from all at the club, a great round of applause and standing ovation for this tremendous achievement, and may the next chapter bring you just as much joy.

38mate Club Walk for Myeloma | 5th March 2023

Hawthorn Makers Market

All Club members can join our Hawthorn Makers Market team at Hawthorn Town Hall on Sunday 5th March - it's the second highest fundraising vehicle the Club has & involves over 60 stallholders promoting their craft - please support it - and also participate in a leisurely walk down Glenferrie Rd at 11am to raise awareness for those living with myeloma.
You can register to walk on the myeloma website for $20 per person - - follow the 38mate prompts, to "Hawthorn Vic Walk"
Both maroon and white TEAM MYELOMA tees are available here as well in most sizes ($30 ) and white 38mate baseball caps ($25) - but please order before 24th Feb to ensure delivery before the walk on 5th March.
We will bring extra caps and tees to the market stall to purchase on the day - to ensure you can kit out to help build myeloma awareness during the walk.
All families and pooches are welcome - as well as all Rotarians.
It also coincides with the Glenferrie Festival Day on 5th March - so there will be road closures along this section of Glenferrie Rd to open it up for the festival and other community stallholders - expect music and good food options as well - so arrive early to secure any parking or come by train.
Be there or be square - let's hope for a good sunny day.
