Welcome to the 2021-2022 Board members - Peter Rawlings, Roger Skipsey, Pat Morton, Valerie Lyons, Lara Barrett, President Carole Allen, Bill Branthwaite, Christine Williams, Gordon Morriss, Steve Daly. We are looking forward to another year of action serving our community.
 
You only need a glance at the “Wall of Thankyous” in the workshop at Progress Signs to recognise the community organisations they have reached out to and helped. So, it was fitting that we at Rotary Club of Mt Martha recognise their generosity and award the business of Progress Signs a Rotary Foundation Certificate of Appreciation in recognition of the contribution that this business has made to the Mornington & Mount Martha Community over thirty years. 
FUSION were most grateful to club member Phyllis for the donation of 2 tonnes of firewood. Club members delivered and stacked the load this week. This totals about 3.5 tonnes of firewood processed by the Mount Martha Rotary Club for FUSION so far this season, with another load available when storage space becomes available.
 
Located in the former Balcombe army barracks in Mount Martha, Fusion’s Housing Support Program provides accommodation and support for young people experiencing homelessness between the ages fifteen and twenty-one.
 

Our Club is supporting the Mount Martha Community Garden and were present at the recent grand opening of the garden. The garden is a group of local Mount Martha residents with a like-minded goal to create a community kitchen garden at Mount Martha House (around the old caretaker's cottage).

The club recently conducted its 40th Community Golf Day at the Mount Martha Public Golf Course. Whilst the weather wasn’t kind, 65 players ventured out onto the course. The club was able to raise over $10.000.
 
Major Sponsors - SAI Home & Community Care and Mount Martha Community Bank.
 
Over the years, the club has raised over $500,000 with 100% of funds raised going to local organisations and overseas causes in developing countries.
Thanks to all the sponsors, supporters & players.
 
 
The Rotary Club of Mount Martha has partnered with the seven Rotary Clubs of the Mornington Peninsula and The Mornington Peninsula Shire to develop community infrastructure and amenity along existing paths that form the Bay Trail.
Our club is focused on developing the Harrap Creek Trail from the Briars to Craigie Road. This will mean that when the already funded Mornington to Moorooduc trail is complete, recreational cyclists will be able ride from existing city trails to the mouth of the Balcombe Creek in Mount Martha.
The Harrap Creek Trail is directly connected to the Briars and Balcombe Creek boardwalk which was constructed by the Rotary Club of Mount Martha in the 1990’s and 2000’s.
The existing Harrap Creek trail has no community infrastructure other than some graded gravel paths. The club’s vision is to see vibrant community infrastructure and amenity along the Harrap Creek trail and parkland that engages the community to use and care for the land.
 
A planting day was recently completed at the Mornington Park Primary School. Five Crepe Myrtles and three weeping Lilly Pillys have been planted in the recreation area and will provide beautiful autumn color and summer shade. The vegetables are obviously thriving in the planter boxes we constructed earlier in the year. Thanks to teacher Glen the music and garden teacher and the students who helped with the digging.
With the recent rain these new plantings will begin to thrive. Funding to complete this project was through a Rotary Foundation District grant project application.
 
 
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.
 
Rotary members share a unique passion for taking action to improve their communities and the world.
