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.
During this past year, the club has worked hard to develop a garden comprising a number of raised beds, a chicken coop, herb garden and tree plantings for the children of the Family Learning Centre at Northern Bay College. We were delighted to receive a letter of appreciation from the centre accompanied by this letter from the children. 
 
An intrepid band of club members took part in the International Marathon Fellowship of Rotarians Challenge Walk along the Barwon River this morning, 13th June 2020. The IMFR have kindly indicated that they will donate to a cause voted on by the participants, world wide. Check out the video:
 
 
One of the projects that our club has supported for a number of years is the Bushikori Christian Centre in Uganda. Our club member, John Watts, who has been our link to the project, shared the following video that was put together to explain to our newer members what Bushikori is all about and what it does. This is well worth a look.
 
 
 

We recently had two amazing young people speak to the club about their excellent initiative, Lockdown Buddies. Despite Rachel and Kara having 5 boys under 5, they have established Lockdown Buddies to support those most vulnerable in the Geelong, Bellarine and Surf Coast areas during the Covid-19 period. They are supporting all age groups, from the elderly who do not have family and friends to support them, to students who are isolated, who can’t get home and have lost their jobs. They can provide Apco Care packages, and volunteers who will assist with gardening and small maintenance issues. They are working closely with Volunteers Geelong to ensure that all the support personal are interviewed, have Working with Children registration and are suitable for the tasks to which they are assigned. Their web site below has information about the services. Click the following link or refer to the flyer below that.
