Crime Stoppers Brisbane Bayside

On Tuesday evening our guest speaker was Robert Plummer, President of the local chapter of Crimne Stoppers, together with his wife and the Treasurer, Kay Plummer.  Some of the statistics of crime are mind-boggling, but the Brisbane Bayside group are working hard to make a difference in our community.  When thinking about reporting a crime, we need to think in terms of level of emergency - Urgent call 000; non-urgent call Police Link 131 444 or report online and you will need to identify yourself; want to make an anonymous report? Call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

The local group are working with Rotary clubs and other groups to work more closely with the local community - you may see them in our ranks at events in the future.

Club activities update

Thanks to a 3 day lockdown in January, Tuesday was our first face to face meeting for this half of the year. A great night was had at Quysine Restaurant, with 50 members, partners and friends in attendance.  Photos are now uploaded into the Photo Gallery.

A busy time as has been reported in the Redlander - a few photos are in the Gallery Under Club Events and Australia Day 2021. Again, many thanks to the many volunteers who have assisted in the recent weeks.

Rotary International President Elect Shekhar Mehta Announces Theme for 2021-22

Incoming Rotary International President Shekhar Mehta urged members to become more involved in service projects, saying that caring for and serving others is the best way to live because it changes not only other people’s lives, but also our own.

  Mehta, a member of the Rotary Club of Calcutta-Mahanagar, West Bengal, India, revealed the 2021-22 presidential theme, Serve to Change Lives, to incoming district governors on 1 February during the Rotary International Assembly. The assembly, a yearly training event for district governors-elect, was originally set to take place in Orlando, Florida, USA, but was held virtually because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mehta spoke about how participating in service projects through Rotary changed him as a person and made him empathize more with the needs of others. Soon after joining his club, he helped carry out projects that benefited rural communities in India.

Some of the poor conditions he saw in those communities strengthened his commitment to service. “I truly understood the plight of my brethren,” he said.

Mehta participated in initiatives that brought artificial limbs to children, clean water and sanitation to homes, and better health care facilities to communities.

“Rotary kindled the spark within me to look beyond myself and embrace humanity,” he said. “Service became a way of life for me and I, like many others, adopted the guiding philosophy that ‘Service is the rent I pay for the space I occupy on this earth, and I want to be a good tenant of this earth.’”

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

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.
