During the Covid-19 outbreak Kardinia Rotary Club meets virtually Wednesday mornings at 7:00 am using Zoom. When we go back to normal we will meet at 7:00 am for a breakfast meeting at the Highton Bowls Club Corner Roslyn and North Valley Roads, Highton, Geelong.
We are a diverse group of people who work hard within our local community and the wider community.  We warmly welcome you to join us if you'd like to learn more about Rotary and our Club. During the Covid 19 outbreak please contact our President Vici Funnell at v.funnell@bigpond.com and she can add you to the meeting attendees list.
We are pleased to share that our regular, virtual Club Meetings using the Zoom platform have gone very well. Our members are rapidly becoming proficient with the platform. Breakfast continues as usual!
Meetings start with a 7:00 am join, via Zoom, with the formalities starting at 7:15 am, as usual. The meeting link will be shared via email.
The program for subsequent meetings will be released shortly. Please refer to the Meetings / Calendar page for meeting detail and the meeting duties.
With the suspension of all non-essential gatherings of 500 or more people, the 2020 Surf Coast Trek was unfortunately canceled. This was to be the major fund raiser for Give Where You Live and Kids+. One of our club members decided he would still do his bit to raise some much needed funds for those organisations and, having gathered some donors and a donation match, conduct his own, socially distanced 42km trek - backwards. A one man boot camp with the emphasis on boot. Enter the Un Trek! Here's his story:
Dear Folks,
Well, my 2020 “Not the Surf Coast Trek” as been trekked, err un-trekked, errr whatever!
Being a tad conflicted by government mantra to “stay at home if possible”, I humbly defied this for this particular event (Scott, I throw myself on your mercy, paraphrasing a biblical verse “Forgive me as I did not know what I doing!”). I did know actually and at the bottom of this report my rationale is explained for what it is worth. 
I promised you a report on the Un-Trek, so here goes:

The Plastic Trap

How do we escape our tangled relationship with a throwaway culture? Rotarians are pointing the way.


Since 2015, more than 4 million people have fled an economically devastated Venezuela. Tracking the stories of three who left puts faces on that staggering statistic.
