Terrific evening with Westside cluster clubs of Rotary Club of Bacchus Marsh, Rotary Caroline Springs, Rotary Eynesbury, Rotary Club of Melton and Rotary Club of Melton Valley, talking Growth Action Plan (, club projects and packing 100 soup kits for the local foodbank.
It was great to see Rotarians and friends coming together as a cluster for the first time in years.
We also celebrated the mentoring relationship between Reg Holloway and Geoffrey Camm with a special DG Mentoring recognition. Reg acknowledged how Geoff's encouragement and praise has given him the confidence to take on a position on this year’s Bacchus Marsh Rotary Club board and to apply for a promotion at work - which he got!
Special thanks to cluster Presidents Keith, Deborah, Martin, Donna and Ronald, Bacchus Marsh members for organising the venue and food, Rotary-spouse Kylie Farrugia and Lili Tiechman for sourcing the ingredients for the soup kits, and AG Michael Lapina.
As part of the official DG cluster visits, our clubs have now packed 200 meal kits, helping to feed 1000 people. Our goal is for 1500 meals to be distributed to local communities! Westside have set a new record of packing meal kits in 15 mins, which cluster is up for the challenge?!
