Looking back in time, this is a story published in Docklands News - May 2009, Issue 42

Little by little for Docklands Rotary

Docklands’ fledgling Rotary Club is inching closer to becoming chartered with 12 signed-up members as of late last month.

Club “mid-wife” Ann White said 20 people seemed to be the magical number when those who had been sitting back to wait and see became emboldened and finally submitted an application.

At its April 21 meeting at Moored, Waterfront City, the club was addressed by Laverton resident Barbara Irving who organised a camp for 54 bushfire-affected children following the Black Saturday disaster.

Barbara intends to repeat the feat in June and is seeking assistance in sourcing manchester, toiletries, games, toys and other items that the children will take home with them. She can be contacted on 0412 867 931.

The club meets formally every fortnight, with a “happy hour” social meeting every other Tuesday night. The next happy hour will be held on May 12 from 6.30 to 7.30 at Watermark Bar, Victoria Harbour.

For further information about the club, Ms White can be contacted on 0402 306 790.
