Be a part of our Rotary Geelong West Book Fair - 16th,17th and 18th February 2024

Posted on Feb 19, 2023
Rotary Geelong West is holding their next Book Fair at Geelong West Town Hall on 16th, 17th and 18th February 2024. The doors will open at 9:00am on Friday 16th February.
NB: Book collections and drop offs are now closed. 
 We will resume accepting books after the February 2024 Book Fair at Rotary House, 2-4 Baxter Road, North Geelong. Drop offs can be accepted the second Tuesday of each month between 1pm-3pm, and on the fourth Sunday of the month between 10am-11.30am.
In the lead up to our Book Fair, Rotary Geelong West Team has been sorting through books from all genres, which will be available at incredible prices. In August 2023,  over 2,500 people came to the fair over the weekend.Over $25,000 was raised for various charities - we continue to be thrilled with our results. Each of our Book Fair contributions make up the major fundraising event for the Rotary Club of Geelong West, which so far has raised over $150,000 that has been channelled back through our Rotary Club’s supported projects such as Barwon Health Foundation Project North, Samaritan House, Operation Newstart, Christ Church Meals Program, Barwon Valley School and Geelong Youth Engagement, not to mention all of the many smaller charitable programs that have been assisted by Rotary Club Grants each year.

Remembrance Service 12th November 2022

The Rotary Club of Geelong West in conjunction with Geelong Legacy Club will be hosting a Remembrance Service at the Cenotaph, located in the forecourt of Geelong West Town Hall (near the Library).
The Service is to be held on Saturday 12 November commencing at 10.30am and is open to anyone who may wish to place a floral tribute on the day. Geelong West Brass Band and cadets from the TS Barwon will also support and participate at the Service, with a minute's silence observed at 11.00am.
The Saturday service was chosen to avoid a clash with RSL services on Friday 11th November and to allow as many residents as possible of Geelong West to attend.
The Cenotaph was dedicated in 1927 as a tribute to those local residents who served in WW1 but only limited Remembrance Services have been held in the past 30 years.

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.
