Clean up Australia Day
It was a cool day to get out and about early on Sunday morning to assist on Clean Up Australia Day. With a cool 17 deg C the volunteers gathered to clean a small section of Caroline Springs. Thank you to all that could make it. It's our neighbourhood and everyone can do their part to dispose of waste correctly.  I am happy to say that there was a lot less rubbish to collect.
Thank you to everyone for volunteering your time.
Phoenix Rover Scouts Hands on @ WERN
We had another great joint meeting/working bee held at the WERN warehouse on Wednesday night with members of Rotary Caroline Springs and Phoenix Rover Crew (Caroline Springs).
Even with the weather reaching the day's highest temperature at 6.30pm, we went ahead and made good use of the 'cool spaces' to complete tasks.
One team was making up cutlery sets, using the donated cutlery that Ken D picked up from a local golf club, the second team were putting together crockery packs and the final team were putting together sheet sets.
RCS members, along with our AG Cheryl Nash (regular volunteer from Thursdays), steered the activities and all had a fun evening chatting and working alongside these young adults. Such a worthwhile club activity!
Many hands make light work as they say. Visit the 1st Caroline Springs Scout group on facebook here.

About Rotary International

Rotary International 1.4 million-member organization started with the vision of one man—Paul P. Harris. The Chicago attorney formed one of the world’s first service organizations, the Rotary Club of Chicago, on 23 February 1905 as a place where professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas and form meaningful, lifelong friendships. Rotary’s name came from the group’s early practice of rotating meetings among the offices of each member.
Rotary of Caroline Springs part of this amazing International community is a relatively new club but we are here as part of your community in Caroline Springs. If you have a project come and talk with us, better yet speak at one of our meetings to see how we can collaborate with one another to serve this community and together we can connect. We also need volunteers to help us run our program like BusfFeet and many more. Contact us to volunteer.
In May 2023 Rotarians from around the world gathered on this beautiful city of Melbourne at the Rotary International Convention 2023 (RICON). The next Convention will be in vibrant Singapore from May 25-29 2024. We are looking forward to welcoming all Rotarians from around the world.

Rotary Safe Families


Rotary SAFE Families and Changepreneurs are working together to address the priority for young women to enjoy respectful relationships whilst understanding the need for prevention of abuse in any form to women in our CALD communities in Australia.

The Changepreneurs group was established by Abiola Akinbiyi in 2020. The group consists of dynamic young women from migrant backgrounds looking to make impact within the Australian community. 

In 2020  the Changepreneurs was created, aiming to empower youth and CALD women through mentorship, outreach, and education, with proven success stories from all mentees, from excellent ATAR to successful professional careers in health, finance, entrepreneurship, leadership, and community service.

These wonderful women positively impact the communities through their passion, skills, knowledge, and experience. Changepreneurs are in the business of making change. Less talk, more doing, positive impact, and giving back to community.

Rotary SAFE Families has had our Guide to Prevention of Family Abuse in Australia translated into 6 different languages so far. The latest release is a video on Rotary Safe Families Inclusive Communities Initiative - Swahili. Click on the photo to view the video.
