COVID19 - We are still operating
The Rotary Club of Mount Martha meetings is one of the most enjoyable things about being in Rotary. Nice company and conversations as well as all the nitty-gritty Rotary stuff thrown in for good measure. 
 
Unfortunately, nature has played a winning hand and shut our meeting schedule down for a while. In the meantime, we are trying out our online communication skills to beat COVID 19 and keep us all ready to do some amazing things in the world once this dilemma has abated.
 
Who knows how long that will be, but rest assured we are all still working away to make the world a better place down the track!
 
Stay tuned!
 
 
 
 
 
If you are interested in Rotary, what it does and how it works, now is the perfect time to find out!

Members of Mt Martha Rotary recently took action in creating lasting change through the clubs Rotary Overseas Recycled Playgrounds project. Three recycled playgrounds that were harvested from Dega Ave Bentleigh, Bay Mt Martha and Memorial Drive, Noble Park have been delivered to the Rotary Donation in Kind (DIK) warehouse in Footscray.
 
These playgrounds were loaded in a shipping container and are now bound for Sri Lanka.
 
In the coming weeks, several other playgrounds will be harvested from sites throughout the Mornington Peninsula region.
 
  
The club has undertaken a number of projects at the Mornington Park Primary School such as landscaping, building minor works and certain maintenance/improvement tasks, to assist schools channelling funds into programs for needy children
The latest project was the re-development of an outdoor area at the school. The work shown, was the building of 3 planter boxes for planting vegetables for the kitchen garden program. Rotarians worked with Jeff and Glen from the school and school students filled the boxes with the soil.
The final phase will be the planting of trees and shrubs around the perimeter of the paved area. 
A big THANK YOU to Ritchies IGA Mt Martha for their $500 donation to Mount Martha Rotary which will help us support our community. Darren Galea, the Mt Martha store assistant manager presented the cheque to Rotary Club member Pat Morton.
