POSTPONED DUE TO COVID RESTRICTIONS - Rotary Club of Geelong West Book Fair

Posted on Sep 09, 2021
Effective 10 September, we remain under eased Covid19 restrictions and as a result of these restrictions, we are disappointed to advise that we will not be able to hold our Winter Book Fair, as proposed. We had hoped we might be able to hold a public event indoors, but that is not viable now, nor is it for the following few months due to restrictions on public gatherings. As a result, we will work towards a February 2022 event and we will keep you posted on our plans and look forward to bringing this Rotary Book Fair to Geelong once again. 
(NB. Book drop offs will now only be accepted at Rotary House on the second Tuesday of the month 1.00 to 3.00 pm and on the 4th Sunday of the month 10-11.30 am. Rotary House is located at 2 Baxter Road, North Geelong. It is a warehouse at the rear of the GDPI storage sheds with a large sign stating "Rotary House".)
Looking to the future, the Rotary Team has sorted through books from all genres, which will be available at incredible prices - $1 for paperbacks and children's books; $2 for hardcovers. Each Book Fair contributes to the major fundraising for the Rotary Club of Geelong West, and so far has raised over $120,000 that has been channelled back through our 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.
