    shallow and boats sometimes run aground As the lake bed is sandy little damage is done except to the helmsman s reputation On one occasion the venue was changed to the Murray River with houseboats hired at Echuca This was also an enjoyable outing but in comparison to the lakes there was not too much room to manoeuvre leading to occasional encounters with the riverbank and near misses with paddle steamers Another annual event for many years was a social cricket match and family barbecue Generally the two teams were captained by the President and President Elect Although not notable for displays of sporting prowess these were enjoyable occasions However they have been dropped from the program in recent years due to advancing age of members Weekend at Mount Hotham 1992 L R Ian Mellett Peter Evans Helen Stevens June Pyke John Richards John Pyke Neil Shepherd Rosemary Vaarzon Morel Chris Mellett Cathy Evans Alan Stevens In addition to the Aquatic weekends more conventional weekend trips have been occasionally organised for members and their families Places visited included Mt Buller and Mt Hotham in summer Lorne Warburton and Port Fairy hosted by Alan Stevens District Conferences are generally well attended by Canterbury people The Club usually makes its own accommodation arrangements and many members plan additional holidays before or after the conference Other regular Fellowship activities include Friendly Flickers Sunday night films at the Balwyn Cinema with discounted tickets often followed by a late meal Oz Tennis A special charity day at Melbourne Park on the Sunday before the start of the Australian Open Tennis Championship Proceeds went towards training of young tennis players Guess Who s Coming to Dinner Several families act as hosts and names of the guests for each host family are drawn out on the night

  • Fund Raising - The Rotary Club of Canterbury Inc.
    crowd control marshals and due to the area covered and the numbers attending many people were needed In addition to families and friends many members of other Rotary Clubs assisted Some 36 000 was raised for the Rotary Bone Marrow Research Centre The following February 1994 another similar program was organised and over 15 000 was raised Further such activities became impractical with the coming of the Australian Grand Prix to Albert Park More recently in June 1998 Canterbury provided marshals for the Shannons Classic Car Display resulting in a contribution of some 6000 for the club s service funds Cup Eve Calcutta As Canterbury meets on Monday nights the Melbourne Cup Eve meeting is usually a festive affair A Calcutta is often run on these occasions and they are successful fund raising as well as enjoyable social events Fish Night Another annual event combining fund raising and fellowship was the Fish Night established by the Club s seafood enthusiasts notably Doug Hawley and Trevor Donkin On the morning of the event some dedicated Cantabrians rose early and went to the Footscray Wholesale Fish Market to collect the starting materials Food preparation and serving was carried out by members who nonetheless found time to enjoy the evening This event had to be discontinued due to increasingly stringent food preparation rules Charity Auction In August 1997 Canterbury joined with North Balwyn to hold a joint Charity Auction at the Camberwell Civic Centre Canterbury s role being organised by Trevor Donkin and Peter Bolton Donations of goods and services for auction were obtained by members from local businesses Canterbury s share of the proceeds amounted to some 8000 of which 1000 was donated to the Royal Childrens Hospital Centre for Hormone Research Gala Auction Balls Following a proposal by Ross Merolli a decision was made for Canterbury to conduct its own Gala Auction Ball A committee was set up headed by Ross to organize the event The Gala Auction Ball was held at Leonda By The Yarra on Friday 10 May 2002 The event was a great success raising some 35 000 A second Gala Auction Ball was held again at Leonda on Friday 7 May 2004 A very successful night raising approximately 37 000 Organising major events such as this requires a great deal of time and effort and cannot be repeated very often Camberwell Sunday Market The Sunday Market has been a remarkably successful venture established by the Rotary Club of Balwyn Supplying enough volunteers to man all entrances to the market car park area became an increasing strain and Balwyn invited several neighbouring clubs including Canterbury to supply volunteers in exchange for an appropriate share of income from the market Commencing in 1999 Canterbury has supplied an agreed number of members currently three members each Sunday ensuring a substantial regular addition to its funds available for service projects Boroondara Art Market One of the projects run by Boroondara Sunrise at the time of its amalgamation with Canterbury in 2005

    of North Balwyn to grow The tram terminus was then moved to Balwyn Road finally establishing the area as we know it today THE CLUB BANNER Our club boundaries meander through a series of parks and green belts which once comprised the northern section of the Outer Circle Railway Featured on our front cover and banner Rowan Car No 2 first ran through our club s zone on the 2nd October 1892 Our club was chartered on 2nd October 1984 92 years later The Victorian Railways purchased the Rowan Steamcar in 1883 from Capt F C Rowan of Melbourne The vehicle comprised a small engine unit with a passenger compartment for 40 people The front 4 wheels provided the traction driven by a 2 cylinder steam engine with a vertical boiler The first Rowan cars were found to be impractical due to the lack of turntable facilities in the Camberwell section The spare parts are known to have been built into a separate unit known as Motor 2 Its accompanying 4 wheeler passenger carriage AB118 was built with first second class compartments separated by a partition to the ceiling and it was fitted with reversible seats and a booking office Access was by means of the end platforms The little train was commissioned to help save the dying Outer Circle Railway system but to little avail as the whole system was closed in 1893 Rowan Car No 2 commuted through our club s boundaries from Camberwell to Fairfield for just under a year The train s fate is unknown but it lives on in perpetuity on our banner and the cover of our Bulletin and reminds us of a vital community link with the past according with the thrust of Rotary ideals The Final Crunch Graham Marion Bishop listening intently to all the memories being recalled It was news to Marion what went on while collecting money for the Salvos Late in 2004 a Review Committee was set up to identify the needs of the Club to ensure survival into the future Membership was at an all time low and the Committee found that as members wanted the Club to stay a breakfast club a re branding of the Club was needed This meant a new name the Rotary Club of Boroondara Sunrise and a new venue Kew Heights Sports Club central to the Boroondara area Both were implemented in April 2005 along with a local advertising campaign to attract new members Although some enquiries resulted no new members were forthcoming With a very active year covering many major projects key members were beginning to tire with the workload and needed more assistance that was not available through current membership By May 2005 a merger with another club seemed the only way to go While we celebrated Rotary s 100th Anniversary sadly the writing was on the wall for our Club During May 2008 members visited a number of Clubs in the Boroondara area including Boroondara Kew East and Canterbury

    yet the rewards of giving someone sight for the first time in their life restoring the sight of all those who had lost it some many years ago restoring the hearing of hundreds of young children relieving the pain of infections reassuring people that their inability to read once they have turned 50 is quite normal and easy to fix with the spectacles we provided saving the lives of those with critical dental problems made every moment of our Medical Mission to the Philippines worthwhile This year for the first time our team was trained to use the otoscope This was a huge success enabling us to look into 15 600 ears at 11 primary schools We found 156 perforated eardrums several ants and other insects and issued 923 free medications to fix ear infections and remove the wax that was severely impacted into the ear canals preventing sound reaching the ear drums We don t yet know the final number of eyes we checked but this year the doctors were performing the eye operations the same day we screened the patients PP Jill Keeffe told us just before we left that you could screen all you like but unless you have an effective way to restore the sight of those you find with cataracts there is little point Four surgeons conducted 325 eye operations during this mission so we were there to witness the miracles as the eye patches were removed twelve hours later When a small child sees a tree for the first time in her life and with a beaming smile tells you how beautiful it looks it melts your heart When a father thanks you for enabling him to once again be able to earn an income to be able to feed his young family it make you feel proud you joined this Rotary Club When a grandmother who has outlived her children has her independence restored with the gift of sight and squeezes your hand in gratitude with a toothless smile you just know that you have to come back to do more These eye operations donated free by our four doctors were valued at around 8 800 000 pesos This was for some of the poorest people in the Philippines Rotary works best when we partner with those organizations who have expertise No better example could be found than the deep partnerships that have been formed between our Rotary Club with our sister clubs in the Philippines the Rotary Club of Masbate and the Rotary Club of Rizal West The Cataract Foundation of the Philippines provided all the lenses anesthetics ear medications reading glasses sun glasses and training of local school nurses and medical staff to ensure this program is sustained well into the future for the areas we visited We needed the support of the Provincial government and the Municipal governments for the facilities and to bring in their people The support of our local doctors is critical What a team we had
