A Triple Treat Induction!
This week we had the pleasure of inducting 3 new Easties into the Friendly Club!! We welcomed Rae Macleod, Leon Punton & Kylee Ellerton into the big world wide family of Rotary! Kylee is new to Rotary, Leon is actually a former Eastie and Rae is a former member of the Wendouree RC.
And to add to the excitement, one of our newer members David Stokes gave a very interesting 'what we didn't know about him' talk.
Lots of hard work goes in to this event, however the outcomes more than compensate for that.  We expect to clear around $5700 which will go back into the community.
Thanks to all who supported us over the weekend.
On Tuesday night we split the proceeds of our very successful Trivia Night for the Homeless three ways.....to CAF's Ballarat, Soup Bus Ballarat and Uniting Care Ballarat. Thanks to Wendy, Alan & Craig for taking the time to attend and collect! Hopefully we have made a difference!
 
 
Recently we handed out funds raised over the last 12 months. Those present and pictured are representatives from The Salvation Army, Special Olympics, Fiona Elsey Cancer Research, Ballarat Hospice, The Smith Family and Sanon restaurant in Myanmar.
 
Changeover night.........and what a night it was! Lots of presentations including two important Paul Harris Fellow recognitions, one for Emma & 2 PHF sapphires for Marg! Congratulations Ladies, very well deserved!  Photo is out with the old - Judy & Jim and in with the new...Phil!
 
As part of our second hand books project, we place books at Ballarat Hospital. For a small donation, patients can purchase a book to read to help pass the time. This is a joint venture between BHS Foundation and our Rotary Club of Ballarat East.
 
We have left the old and moved into our new home at Donations in Kind Depot Ballarat Airport!
