Official Launch of the HEAT Kitchen

HEAT : Hospitality Employment And Training On Monday 26th July several members from the RCAP attended the Official Launch of the HEAT Kitchenwhere MP Michael Danby,  and HEAT Patron Guy Grossi officially launched the NEW HEAT Kitchen. Funding of this project was by the Australian Government.  The Rotary Club of Albert Park have surported this program in the past with the donation of a dishwasher, the erection of garden beds for vegetables and herbs to be grown and used on the premises and excursion to other vegetable gardens. The centre is located at SKYS Learning Centre, 62-74 Pickles St, South Melbourne.
The new kitchen is of commercial quality, large, stainless steel, having the capability of preparing multible meals at one time.Participants of this program served light lunch and refreshments which had been prepared in this kitchen.



Last Weeks Speaker

Last week we had the pleasure of staff, volunteers, participants and board members from PCYC give a talk and presentation about the St Kilda Police and Citizens Youth Club the programs they run, how they rely heavily on volunteers as they do not get government funding, the current conditions of their enviroment and what they need to do to be able to continue.

Their members come in all shapes and sizes and include the homeless, the lonely, the mentally depressed, the at-risk, the disadvantaged; ones with physical and mental health issuees. Two of the young youths who come along had been part of the program since they were about 5 years old and had spent 10 years with the program. 


We would like to thank those who gave up their time and came along and would like to congratulate the ones behind running this most worthwhile program and wish them all the success in the future.

Rotary Tree Planting Day

R OTARY E NVIRONMENTAL P LANTING SCHEME   -                                                                                                                                                                                                                  ROTARY TREE PLANTING DAY                 Sunday 8th August 2010.

As part of our on going R.E.P.S. program to help reduce "the salinity problem" in the Goulburn/Murray River System by planting trees and increasing the areas capacity to recover the bio-diversity capacity to restart the natural environmental cycle in this area; the president and members of the Rotary Club of Manningham Inc. District 9180 invite your club members, families, friends and interested groups to take part in our tree planting day 8th August 2010, where 9000 trees can be placed on 4 sites around the Glenaroua-Broadford district.

The area we have chosen to work in (10 year programme) is the Sugarloaf Catchment, a large area feeding the creeks that flow into the GoulburnRiver, then the Murray River. In normal conditions thirty (30) tonnes of salt per square kilometre leave this area annually.

R.E.P.S aims to reduce the salinity at the source, which is known as the recharge areas. Where the rain water enters the soil, absorbs the salt and carries it into the creeks and streams that then feed into the rivers and also the artesian storage (water table etc.) contributing to the devastation existing in and around Goulburn/Murray River areas.

Activity requires Teams of  3 or 4

1 Planting, 1 or 2 Placing & sinking Tree Guards, 1 Suppling Tube guards, Stakes etc.

Duties to be rotated between the team.

We need Commitment, and if possible the number of members & friends or other groups who can attend, to register by 23rd July 2010. On registration a detailed map will be sent to you. People attending will need to bring: warm clothing, strong footwear, Rainwear & Gardening Gloves, Rotary will provide the equipment and material for the actual planting.

Arrival 8.30am at Broadford; as we wold like to start planting at 9am

Morning tea will be provided on site and concludes with a BBQ lunch at approximately 1.30pm. 


Travels north along Hume Highway to Broadford turn off, turn Left at High St. continue along High Street to Mitchell Shire Office(113 High St.) where registration and site allocation will be conducted. Rotary Signs will be displayed.
