Hello there and welcome to our wonderful and vibrant Rotary Club.
We are to the south east of Melbourne, Victoria, about 18km from the city, meeting each Wednesday morning, currently on Zoom, details here.
We number 37 active members and our main Club activity and fundraiser is the running of the Bentleigh Sunday Market.
We are very proud of the contribution we make to our local communities of Glen Eira and Kingston, and to the wider world, either directly or because we are part of the wonderful worldwide organisation of Rotary.
If you are at all interested in giving a little back to your community and making new friends and being part of Rotary, please contact us or join us at one of our weekly meetings. You will be made to feel very welcome.

Bayspeak is live and underway for the second year in a row.
Bayspeak brings together the most talented senior and junior secondary school students from the Bayside and surrounding area to compete in a speaking competition, with an aim to build confidence and harness leadership qualities.
On Tuesday 10 May the 1st heat of the competition was held at Brighton Grammar School.
    Geoff Gartly was our chairperson for today’s club meeting at Cilantro.  He called upon President Helen for the invocation and Marg Lucas for the royal toast.  Guests, Marcus Godinho, CEO of FareShare, and Elise Facer- Childs, our guest speaker, were welcomed.  Tony Ryan and Jo Impey joined the meeting via Zoom.  There was a welcome return from Graham Chad, who also performed a toast to the club.
    We had some intermittent technical problems today, however, true to form, we got by very well.  We wish to thank Tony Fitzlaff and his team for preparing breakfast this morning under some challenging circumstances having experienced a gas leakage last night and not having any gas for cooking this morning.  Yet the kitchen team provided a lovely breakfast to the high standard we have come to accept as normal. 
Held at the Bentleigh Club on Saturday, May 7th 2022.

Within hours of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in late February 2022, Iryna Bushmina fled her home in Kyiv. Along with her sister and her three-month-old nephew, she journeyed to Vienna, Austria, staying with Rotary members along the way. Their generosity inspired Bushmina, a member of the Rotaract Club of Kyiv-City and the district Rotaract representative for Ukraine, to organize a larger-scale relief effort — and now, an online platform she created has helped Rotaract and Rotary members find shelter for thousands of Ukrainian refugees.
