Crowd at this year’s Carols

This year’s Carols by the Lake was held on Sunday, December 9 at Neighbourhood Reserve, West Lakes.

A collaborative effort of our Club and the West Lakes Uniting Church, this event is in its 42nd year, an achievement of which we are justifiably proud.  A large crowd attended again this year with Santa attracting a record number of children, and the revised program gaining approval from performers and audience alike.

Father Christmas at Bright Hours

Father Christmas at Bright Hours

A luncheon held on November 28 for residents of some local nursing homes was the first of a number of Christmas functions to be organised by the Club over the next few weeks. The “Bright Hours” luncheon is organised in conjunction with the West Lakes Uniting Church, and has a strong Christmas theme with the meal consisting of roast turkey followed by Christmas pudding and custard.

Father Christmas visited the luncheon and distributed small gifts, and attendees were entertained by a magician and a choir.

This event will be followed by the Club running a barbecue at a local primary school, then on December 9 the Club’s major project – Carols by the Lake.

Our meeting on Tuesday, November 27 had a distinctly youthful air as five students from Seaton and LeFevre High Schools attended with some parents and teachers. The students were sponsored by our Club to attend one of the ConocoPhillips Science programs, which are strongly supported by Rotary.

In their address to the Club the students told of some of the projects they enjoyed and the benefits they received from their participation.

Off to the races!

As our regular meeting venue was unavailable, the meeting on November 6 was held at the historic Semaphore Carousel.

It was an appropriate site for the meeting as our club has an affiliation with the carousel which recently celebrated its 80th birthday. Appropriate also to have a ”horsey” theme on Melbourne Cup Day!

Several ”races” were conducted although the horses were a little slower than the real thing.
