Wow, what a fabulous night that the Group 9&10 environment team champions put together on Monday night.
From the minute that you walk in the door the fun began with a wonderful way to find your table, “pick a herb” we were told, so all the thymes, mints and the rosemary’s sat together, meaning that there was a wonderful mix of club members meeting each other.

Our Green Queen Aileen was very successful with her Bee Houses, she with the help from Rick made one for each table, 10 in total, and first in could purchase it for $25 each, Bayside profit from them was $250 to add to our Ukraine Seed Selling day at Westfield Shopping centre.
Rick Brown was a little excited about having to help make 6 more bee houses as Aileen took orders for those that missed out, so total being $550, fabulous effort to the Browns, and if anyone has any spare hand crème, I’m sure Aileen would appreciate it, apparently bamboo can be hard on the hands.
I had the opportunity to sit with Sarah, Community Service director of Rotaract Geelong, and suggested they might like to join us on our seed day, well done Aileen for following up, will be so good to involve the Retractor’s with some of our community projects, such a great bunch of young people.

Also seemed to be a great networking night for Days for Girls, President Beryl from Geelong RC was very pleased to hear from Telsa and the work she does with DFG, they have a Inner Wheel group that would like to be involved with Telsa team.

Linda Carr from RC of Geelong Central organized the fun items for the evening, on e being Environment Bingo, what a fabulous way to meet our fellow dinners and to catch up with other club members that we haven’t seen for a while. Congratulation Diane Webb for taking the prize.

It seems to be a “green” week this week, with a seed packing day in East Geelong on Wednesday, beautiful little packet, made by Aileen, were filled by Andrea Aileen Shirley and me, ready to sell for Ukraine on Saturday.
If you are free, call in and say hello and purchase a seed packet, when they grow, they will put a smile on your face, and you will be helping the people of Ukraine.
