Keilor Rotary Club School Desks Collected 14th March 2014

 

Rotary Donations In Kind is one of Rotary’s largest and most successful projects.   Each week it ships a container of quality recycled goods that organisations no longer require.    This year’s target of 5,000 school desks and 2,000 chairs for Timor Leste is an example of two items for one country.    The Rotary Club of Keilor receives excellent support from schools and Tullamarine Primary School's donation of over 100 desk and 200 chairs is a wonderful contribution.   We now need to raise $3,000 to cover the transport cost.   For more information www.rotarykeilor.org.au or contact David Dippie 0408 174773

Rotary at Work at Keilor Village Pre-school

The following article appeared in the Star Newspaper on 30th April relating to Keilor Rotary Club at work in the Keilor community

THE OLD and new have combined at Keilor Village Pre-school to produce a perfect playground project – including the cubby house occupied by Jemma, Makeylar, Thomas and Owen.
As part of the Rotarians at Work Day on Sunday 21 April, Rotary Club of Keilor members joined parents at the kindergarten to take part in a Keilor 150 legacy project.
With support from Bunnings Taylors Lakes, the Rotarians and families donated their time to upgrade the kindergarten’s grounds.
They landscaped the garden, installed a watering system, planted fruit trees, repainted equipment and fitted out new play equipment including a pretend rowboat.
Brimbank City Council chairman John Watson thanked the Rotary Club for its work.
“Keilor 150 is all about bringing the community together,” he said.
“Throughout 2013, Keilor 150 offers a diverse range of events and activities celebrating the 150th anniversary of local government in Keilor.
“This project is an excellent example of how community groups can work with the wider community to achieve beneficial outcomes for everyone.
“This project will be a lasting legacy of not only Keilor 150 celebrations but for 50 years of Rotary as well.
“The council is delighted with the works at the pre-school, which has brightened the centre for students, parents and teachers to enjoy – congratulations to everyone involved on a job well done.”

Keilor Rotary CLub Makes a Difference in Wycheproof

CITY-BASED David Bourke has made a big difference to Wycheproof, writes GENEVIEVE BARLOW in the Weekly Times

Ambassadorships usually come after a time in the diplomatic corp, learning the art of diplomacy. They're important titles; their bearers play key roles linking and representing people from another country or place. So it is with David Bourke.
David lives in Keilor, works in Alphington near the heart of the city, and travels 80,000km a year around the state in his job in recycling for Amcor, but he's also the unofficial ambassador for the town of Wycheproof, a world away in northwestern Victoria.
Laugh not, for his role has brought great riches to the little town of about 700 people, one of the few in more isolated areas in Victoria beyond the magic 1.5-hour city limits that's recording a rise in its school population.

"We gave David an ambassador award; it's for people who don't live in the community, but who do so much for us," says resident Jacinta Miller. "It's a service-above-self award." The relationship began many years ago when David, whose family owned the meatworks at nearby Donald in the '70s, suggested to his Rotary Club at Keilor (where he was the then president) that they put something into a country area.
