Rotary Friends and Friends of Rotary. When you serve to change lives, your actions today can help extend the lives of others.
Congratulations to Kemi & Olu on their wedding last weekend:
Next week we have our very own member Kerry Anne, presenting on team Vista.
Kerry Anne is Director of a small project, auspiced by Global Development Group, a non government organisation (NGO) called Team Vista, located in Moshi, Tanzania in the Kaloleni Ward. The ward surrounds the town’s rubbish dump, and Team Vista’s goal is to elevate the children’s living standard through helping them understand the value of education and also enable them to be protected from abuse and manipulation.
Kerry Anne became involved through her son, who went to teach for a year in Moshi not long after she was widowed. By visiting her son there during his stay, Kerry Anne became deeply involved with the NGO and how it is  carrying out humanitarian projects with approved partners and providing aid to relieve poverty.
Did You Know 1 - We have been offered 2 Bunnings BBQ’sMay 28th and June 18th. Plenty of warning and both are Saturdays. Please add these dates to your diary and come and join in the fun and friendship at Bunnings Hawthorn. Interested in volunteering - please contact Lyndon Joss.
Did You Know 2 - New member induction for Andy Chappell has been scheduled for the 25th May
Did You Know 3 - Our club’s contribution to the Flood Appeal held at the Camberwell Sunday market on March 27th was $3,226.46.
These donations were combined with the net profit for the day and will be forwarded to the Treasurer at RC Balwyn. The RAWCS Flood appeal will receive an amount of $20,000 as a result of our efforts at the market and an additional top-up from RC Balwyn. A great result and a terrific example of the Cluster working together for a strong outcome.
Have a good week in Rotary

ROMP Goes to Warrnambool
From L to R: Peter Allen (Rotary Camberwell), Bob McMullin (Rotary Club of Warrnambool Central), Chris Rantall (Guest speaker), John Hutson ( Rotary Club of Warrnambool Central & event organiser) and Adrian Campbell (Rotary Camberwell)
The City of Warrnambool celebrated the 150th running of the Grand Annual Steeplechase this week, and the pre meet lunch organised by the Warrnambool Central Rotary Club was attended by 130 guests from all over the State. The charity partner of the event was Myeloma Australia, and our Club members Peter Allen and Adrian Campbell joined the lunch - representing the Club's award winning Rotary Outreach Myeloma Program (ROMP). We are pleased to report about $9,000 was raised for the Myeloma Foundation on the day through very generous donations and raffles - special thanks to local Rotary organisers John Hutson and Bob McMillan (who lives with myeloma).
The Warrnambool community are remarkable ambassadors & fundraisers for those living with Myeloma - with this lunch event together with the city's recent 38mate Walk in February, they have now raised close to $20,000 for the cause - which is the best result of any town or city in Australia. Well done Warrnambool.
The Camberwell Club's multi District ROMP initiative has sown seeds in Rotary Clubs all over the State, to support those living with blood cancers in regional Victoria and to improve health outcomes for those dealing with cancer. A cause worth fighting for in all our regional communities.
Camberwell Art Show Rostering - Commenced
The huge task of assembling the Volunteer Roster for this year's Camberwell Art Show has commenced.
But we need all able-bodied members to complete the "Non-Availability Roster" summary sheet and return it to David Troon as soon as possible to ensure we can accommodate everyone's preferences for dates and tasks. If you have not returned your sheet yet, or communicated with David Troon, DO IT NOW!
