OUR PROJECTS

SAFE PLATE DAY

A team of six volunteers spent Tuesday morning at the Heidelberg Mall replacing conventional number plate screws with theft-proof ones.

No money was raised but we were part of the team including Heidelberg Police, Northcote SES and Banyule Neighbourhood Watch.

METRO RAIL BBQ

Who would have thought that the
Rotary Club of Heidelberg would have organised a meeting at 5am on Wednesday 11th October at Macleod Station !
A team of twelve Rotarians were on deck to cook and supply 700 sausages and vegie burgers to city bound commuters who had to “detrain” and “embus” at Macleod station, due to the level crossing removal project on the line.

POLIO PLUS

The Club makes regular contributions to Polio Plus, including $100 per member as part of our annual fee.

Trailer Raffle

One of the club's major fund raiser's was the trailer raffle, where we raffled off a new trailer donated by Michael's Trailers. The trailer was filled with other donated goods and tickets were sold over a two month period at major shopping centres and markets in the district.

#

Golf Day

The Club's other major fund raiser is the Golf Day where 90 golfers try their hardest for a range of prizes. The day finishes with a dinner at Rosanna Golf Club accompanied by a guest speaker of the sporting variety.

#

Solomon Island Project

The Club sent a team of members to the Solomon Islands to construct a malaria monitoring station in a remote part of the country.

#

New Generations Visit

The club was host to a group of young people from Germany who came to Victoria for 6 weeks. In the week with us we took them to State Parliament, a farm, the MCG, some workplaces and Federation Square.

#

Donations in Kind

The club was offered two classrooms full of old school desks from Rosanna Primary School. We loaded them into a truck and transported them to the DIK centre in Geelong where they will be sent in a container to an overseas country in need.

#

Youth Exchange Student

The Club hosted Maeva, a French exchange student, for 12 months in 2011. She stayed with four families in the club and went to Ivanhoe Girls Grammar School, where she studied Art. She has since completed a Fashion apprenticeship in Paris and is on her way to the job of her dreams.

#

Hands-On

The club has supported the Hands-On program at the local Secondary College, where students spend time out of class engaged in practical projects like horticulture, woodwork, and mechanics etc.
