Last month, through the help of the community we raised over $2000 to support vital mental research at Australian Rotary Health wih Rotary Club of Ivanhoe’s COVID-19 era virtual sausage sizzle.

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Ivanhoe.

The playground recycling challenge for Ivanhoe Rotary Club this month was at the Wahroonga Pre-School in Greensborough, where the old playground was being removed, in preparation for replacement with a new play space at the school.With a small but dedicated group of Rotarians, working with John Arena, Greg and Tom, from Arena Gardens, the old unit was dismantled today, loaded into the Rotary DIK (Donations in Kind) van, and taken to the Rotary warehouse in Footscray where it was loaded into waiting shipping containers. Along with a number of other playgrounds already in the containers, it is intended to ship these for re-establishment in schools in Nepal in the near future.Hope everyone has enjoyed their Easter holidays, wherever you were. ...

Today, Wednesday 10th Feb, was the first formal meeting of the club for 2021, and was held using Zoom technology while we finalise our COVID-safe plans for our face-to-face meetings. We aim to re-start our club meetings back in our usual venue on Wednesday 24th Feb.Today’s meeting included a presentation by the very cheerful Rochelle Kerr, Community Fundraiser Coordinator for Austin Hospital in Heidelberg. Rochelle gave us a bit of the background history and establishments for the hospital, and then outlined the Austin Hospital’s 1000 Minute Challenge, which is being introduced as both a means of encouraging people to improve their activity levels, and also as a fundraising opportunity for teams or individuals to help support the wide-ranging and essential work of the Austin.The 1000 Minute Challenge runs from 1st to 31st March, 2021, and is open to anyone who might want to improve their fitness, at the same time as they are raising funds for the hospital’s programs. Details can be found on the challenge website’s well worth checking out as an interesting opportunity. ... See MoreSee Less

January 26th, and a wet morning for the Merri Creek Walk and Community Brunch sponsored by the Rotary Clubs of Ivanhoe, Pascoe Vale, Moreland and Coburg. This was an event to reflect on, celebrate, and show our respect for our community and our local environment to celebrate the day. This day was also part of our local recognition of 100 years of Rotary in Australia, and the recent inclusion of Support for the Environment as the 7th Area of Focus for Rotary International.The wet morning did little to dampen our enthusiasm, and there was plenty of keen interest over the morning, supported by local musicians, the coffee van and the cooking trailer, giveaway boomerang bags with cups and water bottles, fruit and muffins sourced from local businesses, and native plants for people to take home to plant. The walk along the Merri Creek gave participants a new perspective on quite a few of the points of interest, including the creek environment, local works of art, and historical sites. ...
