Roturtle has a fresh look for 2021!

Greetings to all for 2021. On my COVID-safe exercise walk yesterday I noticed Roturtle looking much fresher than he has been lately. For those who are more recent members - check him out at Cleveland Point - a project of the Rotary Club of Cleveland about 8 years ago, with a time capsule buried there too.

Due to the current lockdowns, we are reverting to Zoom meetings - please see the meeting announcements for the Zoom login. For updates on the latest restrictions please visit Coronavirus (COVID-19) | Health and wellbeing | Queensland Government (www.qld.gov.au)

Boxing Day at Bunnings

The morning crew, Robin, David, Ian, Jan and John working on the last BBQ for the year at Bunnings. There were three shifts, with Redlands Bayside Rotary Club taking the 10-1 shift and Cleveland morning and afternoon. Huge thanks to all the volunteers who gave up their family time to work on the Bunnings BBQ.

Christmas on the Coast 2020

Lots of fun and some hard work for the wonderful volunteers who put their hands up to help on the BBQ and the gates at Christmas on the Coast, Raby Bay Park 16th-20th December.  We had thousands through the gates, so many young families out enjoying themselves, excellent entertainment and of course Santa there each night.

Bob Wearne relished the end of his shift!  The BBQ sold 384 sausages on Friday night, and I beleive over 500 on Saturday night. Extra COVID checks Saturday and Sunday night challenged a little at the gates, but overall a wonderful event - thank you so much to all involved.

Lots of photos in the Photo Gallery

  

Christmas Party at Straddie

Windblown but happy - about 25 members and partners crossed the bay to Little Ships Club this morning, to share a meal and some cheer for the club Christmas Party. Good meal, good company and a stiff breeze to keep the heat down. what more could we want, living in this beautiful part of the world. Great choice for venue John - a good time was had by all.

Substation 33 and DIK visit

Last Tuesday’s meeting of the Cleveland Rotary Club was an excursion to visit DIK and Substation 33 both situated in Mary St, Kingston.  The group consisted of about 20 club members plus many interested partners.  For those who have never visited DIK before it was an eyeopener. As we were being shown around there was much discussion about where donations come from, how they get sorted, the many people involved in running DIK and the processes involved in having these donations reach their target.   Thank you to Albert for organizing this visit.

Our visit to Substation 33 started with a barbecue dinner followed by visitors being broken into four groups to be shown around the workings of Substation 33.  The range of activities being undertaken was broad and certainly opened the eyes of those who visited, about the possibilities open for the future of recycling e waste.  The social impact Substation 33 has on the local community and the connections with the wider community were illustrated and gave much cause for thought.  Thank you to the wonderful cooking team, to Gavin and Bob for organizing and to the Substation 33 staff for their time.

 A very informative night all round.

Rotary Foundation thanks Major Donors Albert & Alison Benfer

DG Patrice Robinson made her official visit to Cleveland Rotary on Tuesday evening, presenting PP Albert Benfer with a crystal and diamind pins for himself and Alison, to thank them for becoming Major Donors Level 2 of the Rotary Foundation. A small token in Foundation Month as recognition of the generosity of Albert and Alison to the work of the Rotary Foundation in all areas of the world. As we all know, Albert has a passion for helping the less fortunate in Papua New Guinea, and is currently filling a container to be shipped to Kiunga, up the Fly River area, to assist the people in the missions there. Please check the Wish Lists sent out by John Lipman last week, and come and help pack at DIK on December 5th.

Pres. John presents DG Patrice with her thank you gift - a 1956 Rotary Song Book, and Rotary luggage tags, in keeping with his theme of 'different' speaker gifts this year. DG Patrice spoke about the changes made by all clubs  this year, and need for change as we move forward, supported by a video of RI Pres. Holger Knaack.

Helping our Disaffected Youth

Mons. John Butler, founder of Vitae, an organisation which mentors and supports young males in the 11-13 age group who have become disillusioned with and disruptive in their lives at home and at school. In January 2018, the organisation changed from dealing with older youth, to working with younger boys, by introducing the Vitae Challenge.

Vitae’s concern over the incidence among Australian youth of anti-social behaviour, violence, crime, substance abuse and suicide has led to the creation of Vitae Challenge.

Vitae Challenge is a program over one year. It consists of two Phases – the Bush Phase and the Mateship Phase – and is open to any male youth, 11 - 13 years of age, exhibiting tendencies to the behaviour described above.

Each youth who nominates for the Vitae Challenge must commit to participate fully in both the Bush Phase and the Mateship Phase."

Check out their website www.vitae.org.au - the statements above are copied from their website.
