President's Message
Club Stories

Rotarians, partners and friends celebrated another successful year on July 9th at Athelstane in Queenscliff.
Projects the Club has supported in the past year include: a new response vehicle for Queenscliff CFA, a surfing weekend for refugees, picnic tables for Point Lonsdale and Queenscliff Primary Schools, a drug awareness forum, lighting the Point Lonsdale Christmas Tree, Rotary Bowelscan, books for newborns, literacy awards for primary students, sending an exchange student to Denmark, Udalo School in the Philippines, Vietnam autism project, Fiji tsunami appeal and the RYDA road safety program.
Pictured are ongoing President Wayne Pecar and Assistant District Governor Kathy Ryan standing in front of our new promotional display.

Enjoy these photos from last weekend's Queenscliffe Bricks LEGO Fans Display, opened by Hon. Lisa Neville MP, Member for Bellarine and Minister for Police & Water.  Almost 1300 people were amazed by the imaginative and detailed creations from members of Melbourne LEGO User Group.  Hundreds of children spent many happy hours creating in the LEGO play area and at the colouring competition provided by Ocean Grove Supertoys/Dizzy Toys, who also ran their popular retail area. 

Another popular 'Queenscliffe Bricks' LEGO Fans Display is over. Winners of the LEGO raffle are:
1st Prize 'City Square':             Ticket 768 Sue Griffith
2nd Prize 'Fire Boat':               Ticket 739 Fay Agterhuis
3rd Prize 'Lighthouse Point': Ticket 871 Fiona McConachy
A special thank you to all who participated.


Health Centre restocked

Part of our local literacy program is the provision of books for newborns in the Borough of Queenscliffe. We have been doing this for several years and well over 200 books have been handed out over this time.

Seen in the photo is Rotarian Marianne Deacon (at right) providing a new supply of books to Jackie Petersen, nurse at the Queenscliff Maternal Child & Health Centre.



Brushing up on skills

The Rotary rotunda in Queenscliff (opposite the Harbour Tower) received a facelift on Saturday 7 May as a hardy band of volunteers from the Rotary Club of Queenscliffe gave the structure a new coat of paint. This followed new cement sheeting being installed in recent weeks by President Wayne and Rotarian Alan.

Future works include new seating in the rotunda and information boards, currently under concept design, for visitors.

Seen in the photo are Rotarians Alan Joyce, Karen Pecar, Kevin Carey and Rob Iser, whilst behind the camera was Wayne Pecar.





Life Long Learning

Our meeting on 9 May 2016 was changed to a guided tour of the new Geelong Library; thank you Dana from the Library and Rotarian Rod Stewart for arranging the tour. On five levels, the library is state of the art with a vast collection of books, music, magazines, movies, audiobooks, ebooks, heritage and more.


The Geelong Library & Heritage Centre (the Dome) is designed to be an inspiring, multipurpose space. Tthe centre will be many things to many different people: a place to meet and socialise; to read and study; to attend events; and use new technologies. Each level is unique with gathering places, reading spaces, the latest technology, spectacular collections, children's and youth hubs, function zones, and more.




The Club is pleased have inducted our newest member, Karen Pecar, who has been "a friend of Rotary" for a long time.
The induction took place at our dinner meeting on Monday 21 March.
We were doubly delighted to have officiating District Governor Jane Cox and Assistant Governor Kathy Ryan, both "fresh" from the District Conference held in Geelong over the previous three days.



The Rotary Club of Queenscliffe, supported by a grant from our Rotary District 9780, has provided significant funding to YMCA's Camp Wyuna at Queenscliffe.
The funding was for the construction of an adventure challenge course that will both be fun and help develop leadership skills.
Seen in the photos are Year 9 students testing out the balance platform, the climbing wall and the stepping blocks.



The Borough of Queenscliffe has awarded the Rotary Club of Queenscliffe the 2016 Community Group of the Year.  Announced at the Australia Day Awards ceremony at Queenscliff Town Hall, the citation (below) details some of the projects and events that the Club was responsible for over the past year.

We work with groups and organizations of all sizes to accomplish even more.
