Monster Book Fair 2021

Posted on Oct 21, 2020
The Rotary Club of Geelong West postpones their Monster Book Fair at Geelong West Town Hall, originally booked for December 2020!
It is with regret, that we advise that due to continuing COVID19 restrictions on our venue, we will not be holding our planned Book Fair for December 2020. However, we remain positive and will continue with plans for our next Book Fair, scheduled in late February 2021.
Our members continue to sort through books from all genres, which will be available at incredible prices - $1 for paperbacks and all children's books; $2 for hardcovers. Each Monster Book Fair contributes to the major fundraising for the Rotary Club of Geelong West, and so far has raised over $100,000 that has been channelled back through the Rotary Club’s supported projects such as Barwon Health Patient Transport, Samaritan House, Operation Newstart, Christ Church Meals Program, Geelong Mums, Geelong Kokoda Youth Program and Interplast, not to mention all of the many smaller charitable programs that have been assisted by Rotary Club grants each year.

Self Care Sunday Geelong Stair Race Report

Posted on Oct 31, 2018
In inaugural Self Care Sunday Stair Climb took place on 28 October 2018 in Geelong. SCA’s Jason Williams car pooled with Maria Pia Piemontese to travel over from Melbourne to take part.

We were so excited to find out only a few weeks ago that there was a stair race happening in Geelong. The local Rotary Club saw the new WorkSafe building being constructed and thought it would be a great idea to have a race up it as a fundraiser.  Jump ahead a few months and the event had grown into Self Care Sunday with the stair race one part of a larger event.
