PP Graeme represented our Club last night at the Damascus College graduation dinner. 
Graeme presented Ellie Carroll with the Damascus College Collegian of the Year award which we sponsor.  Congratulations Ellie!
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.
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!
 
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.

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.
 
This week we said goodbye and good luck to June Henderson, one of our Honorary members. June has been involved with Ballarat East for almost 50 years, firstly through her late husband John and in later years through DIK. She has helped us greatly with sorting books and working at the Book Bonanza. June is leaving Ballarat to be closer to her family. We will miss you June!
On Tuesday evening, we planted some 150 native trees in a cluster group on the Martin property. This was done in response to RI President Ian Riseley's challenge for every Rotarian to plant at least one tree during this Rotary year. Thanks to the Martin family, the Wattle Flat Pootilla Land Care Group, our members and partners and the BBQ chefs!
 
 
We have left the old and moved into our new home at Donations in Kind Depot Ballarat Airport!
