Many thanks to the 21 members and partners that attended the Canni Creek races on Sunday to support Ian Dunkley and help make the meeting a fantastic day.
The bush race meeting has a fantastic atmosphere and is a really enjoyable day. It will be on again next February.
It was also a great fundraiser for our club with almost $3000 being made from the silent auction.

Community BBQ Sponsored by the East Gippsland Rotary Fire Aid Committee – Saturday 17 April 2021
The East Gippsland Rotary Fire Aid (EGRFA) Committee is sponsoring a community BBQ on Saturday 17 April 2021.
The event will be held at the Buchan Football Ground, commencing 10:30 AM.
It’s an opportunity for Rotarians from the 5 Rotary Clubs to say hello to the residents of Buchan and to demonstrate our support for them after a tough year.
Please come along and lend a hand cooking a sausage, or just chatting to the locals.
To help with catering, please call Peter Sindrey (0418 117 998) if you will be attending.
Melbourne Design Week Events in Lakes over Easter
Lakes Entrance and surrounds are expecting a large influx of tourists over the Easter period, under a program of arts events, in conjunction with Melbourne Design Week.
These events include activities at Lake Tyers (Float) as well at Forestec.
One special day is centered around the Waterfront, along the Esplanade at Lakes.
We expect there will be groups of tourists who will need advice, being directed to restaurants, jetties where cruises will depart, the Slip Way facility and general questions about our wonderful township.
This may be a great opportunity for us to act as ‘ambassadors’ for the community.
If you are interested in assisting, please give Peter Sindrey a call (0418 117 998) and he will pass on you name to the organizers.
