Rotary Club of Beaumaris: Victoria Golf Club meals for less fortunate
This week, our Club Correspondent chats with Beaumaris Rotary Treasurer and former President, James Glenwright, about the year ahead with Victoria Golf Club.
Hello James. Welcome to our first chat. You’ve been a Member of the Rotary Club of Beaumaris for 12 years; can you start by sharing what’s important to the Club?
We like to think of ourselves as a ‘vibrant Club’. Despite all the challenges associated with Covid 19, we’ve held weekly Zoom meetings. They’re regularly joined by most, if not all, Members.
Obviously, we’re looking forward to getting back to an engaging program of Club meetings and activities at our regular Victoria Golf Club venue. We enjoy the ambience associated with the Victoria Golf Club. And we know they’re like-minded when it comes to community support.
Tell us more. What is Victoria Golf Club doing to support the community?
This week, their talented kitchen staff are providing 100 pre-cooked meals. The meals are provided to Kingston City Corps (Salvation Army) in Dingley and the Highett Neighbourhood Community House. They then distribute the meal packs to people less fortunate in our local community.
It’s great to see the Victoria Golf Club helping out in this way. We should shout out a big thank you to the staff at Victoria Golf Club for driving this program and for putting their hands in their own pockets to contribute towards the cost of the produce used.
That sounds great! Can you quickly update us on what’s happening with the Club’s fundraising activities?
Our Club fundraising activities – The Black Rock Farmers Market and Beaumaris Farmers Market, and the Bayside Charity Golf Day – are on hold during the lockdown. We hope to see people back at the Farmers Markets very soon. And as soon as we’ve news, we’ll post on our website and social media, and make sure there are plenty of local banners broadcasting the events. I’m sure it won’t be long!
Thank you James. It’s been great to have this chat.
