Used Lead Acid Batteries (ULABs)

The Rotary Club of Cleveland is currently undertaking the collection of used lead acid batteries (ULABs) as a means of fundraising.

These batteries can include used car and truck batteries or batteries out of lawn mowers, tractors, boats, motor bikes and golf buggies, so long as they contain lead (ie. not alkaline, nickel metal hydride or lithium-ion batteries).

Money raised from the sale of ULABs is then channelled back into the Redlands community to support groups in need of financial assistance in these challenging times.

We are happy to arrange for collection of batteries.

You can phone Geoff Gray (0418 713 574) or Bob Neich (0429 438 128)

Your support will help make a difference for others in need. 

New Generations Award

PDG Ros Kelly presented the 2019-2020 District New Generations Award to our team who went to Vanuatu to set up school libraries. The criteria was Making a Difference.  Congratulations to our team, pictured Greg Watson, Helen Dundon, John Lipman, Clive Shepherd with Ros and VP Ian Crane.  Also travelling to PNG were John Simpson & Tim and our YEP student, Theresa. Look out for the booklet showing all their photos at the Rotary 100 exhibition at the Redland Museum - it will be ready for viewing mid-May to the end of June, but make sure you have May 30th in your diaries for the opening.

Guess Who Came to Dinner

Another great night, organised by Peter Marer, with 4 different hosts opening their homes for dinner on Saturday night. Many thanks to the hosts - John & Gayle, Chris & Donna, Anna & David, Albert & Alison. See the photos in the Photo Gallery.

The week that was....

Over 2,500 people visited the Birkdale land, many took the walking or shuttle tour through the Heritage listed WWII Communications hub, talked to others and had their say, voted for their preferred usage of the land. A terrific community response, and thanks go to our fellow Rotarians from the Wellington Point and Redlands Bayside Clubs for their support on the gates, parking, cleaning etc.. Great job and good to see our clubs working together for this community cause.

This week in Cleveland Rotary

On Tuesday night, Lacey Webb from The Resource Hub joined us to talk about the services they could offer to our club, particularly the Recycling Futures team lead by Gavin Becker and Bob Neich. We also had Gavin's son and daughter-in-law with baby come along - Mimi works with Lacey's team when not on maternity leave. All we need now is the approval from Council to be able to move ahead with the plans on the land in Alexandra Hills. Check out this dynamic team on the link below.

Today - Congratulations and well done to Lyn Packer - 30 laps done and dusted, raising funds for the Redlands Community Centre. Thanks to the club and various members who supported Lyn with this effort.

Story Dogs

Amanda Farrell from Story Dogs, with Buddy (who relished his pats and cuddles from his new found Rotarian friends) visited us on Tuesday night, talking about this terific program and the way it is helping children at schools in the Redlands. Story Dogs is a literacy program, which provides one on one reading to help children who are struggling. The child reads to the dog in a non-judgemental way, gradually improving their communication and reading skills, giving them more confidence. See www.storydogs.org.au  for full information.

RYTS CAMP

Tia from Carmel College and Reece from AITC attended the meeting of the 23rd Feb. They gave a lively presentation of their experience at 2020 RYTS, including showing up Clive in a rendition of the camp theme dance. Photo showing John Simpson giving them a little gift for their efforts. 

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.
