This week our guest speakers were Rishni & Anna from the Speech Pathology department at Ballarat Health Services. Rishni & Anna spoke about the inspiring Aphasia Choir for folk with speech difficulties following a stroke or head trauma. Whilst members of the choir may have trouble speaking, their singing abilities shine through. 
If you would like to know more about the choir or offer financial assistance, contact Rishni or Anna at Ballarat Health Services.

This week we had a very interesting vocational visit to Bond Homes Ballarat. David Rowe showed us around the factory where we could see how their kit homes are built and then transported to provide homes far and wide.
 
 
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.
