Our new members James and Grace Bae celebrated their son Stuart’s 1st birthday at the Sheraton Hotel Melbourne on the 8th of April.
This was an amazing evening with 100’s of guests. A fine dinner and presentations. 
Dol or doljanchi is a Korean tradition that celebrates the first birthday of a baby. This ceremony blesses the child with a prosperous future and has taken on great significance in Korea.
RC Doncaster received a donation of $10,000 from the Michael Parker Foundation to assist with rebuilding East Timor after last year’s floods.  We passed the money to Spenditwell, an organisation well established in Timor to carry out such works.  We have just received this update about the project startup. Probably useful for the bulletin.
We’re very pleased to be able to tell you that Budin School project is underway.
I’ve attached some photos of Agostinho, our project manager, at the contract signing with the builder and the school principal.
We are looking forward to seeing this project take shape and will keep you and your club up to date with photos and information.
Kind regards

This weeks guest speaker will be the inimitable Greg King talking about community radio.


Photos and stories wanted.

We are about to turn 50 years and as Bulletin Editor I want to run stories about our previous projects and members. Graeme Trainor has donated stories from his time as Editor, many thanks Graeme. Now I need more, and pictures. Please don't send as multimedia messages as I cannot receive them.

While we’re getting on with the business of helping others, let’s take a moment to remember our fellow Members, Partners and Friends of the Club, who may be doing it a little tough.
We’re also thinking of our long-term absent Members whom we don’t see often enough.
I’m sure all of us know an absent or ex Member who would love to have a call from any one of us as Members of the Rotary Club of Doncaster.
If you do know anyone who is unwell, or is going through challenging times, or even if you’re up against it yourself, contact our Welfare Officer, PP Frank Evans on 9337 8493, or email frank.evans1@bigpond.com.
