Here we go!!  ...........
Our first big project for 2024 will be the Show'n'Shine in February.
Tune in here for reports!!
Our first Pt Lonsdale BBQ was in January 14, so we are not sitting still.
Show'n'Shine - February 4, 2024
Another big day for our members - and the helpers we had from the Masonic Lodge and CWA.
We raised good funds that will help our projects locally.
We acknowledge the generosity of the Geelong Rodders with this project and their support and trust in our work. It is greatly appreciated. We made a wild guess at the crowd and reckon there could have been around 4,000 people there on the day. However, we will stand corrected on that one if we are wrong  !!! :-) 
Thanks also the the "Newey clan" without who we would struggle with this event.


Bottle & Cans recycling - ongoing
Through President Kevin, we were offered th opportunity to collect the bottle and cans from the Queenscliff Golf Club on Swean Island.
The golf club does not have "on tap" service of drinks, so iall drinks are sold in bottles and cans.
The club puts out bins in the clubhouse and around the course and brings all containers to the clubhouse. We collect them from there and take them to the mass recycling centre in Breakwater for recycling.
So far this is proving to be a very good project with over $1200 raised already in 2024.
So that equates to arounf 12,000 bottles and cans we have collected.
There are 3 major benefits:-
1. We are helping the environment as these cans & bottles would otherwise go to landfill.
2. It is a good fundraiser for our service activities.
3. It is saving the golf club with its volume of hard waste. They need less trips to the Rubbus tip - which saves them money.
With our small membershiop, we have had some outside assistance from volunters and we thank them all.
The recycling centre is in Breakwater - a suburb on the est side of Geelong. They have a machine very siimilar to this one that sorts and counts all the bottles & cans. Very helpful as we average around 1,000 cans each trip !!
