HISTORY RECALLED
 
The Rotary Club of Essendon celebrated its history and reviewed their achievement in the building of The Essendon Community Playground at Victory Park Ascot Vale in November 1994. After 30 years it is still an active part of the community. The talk was presented by Past President Steve Chandler one of the organisers at the time and Club Historian
 

 
 
The playground was the brain child of American architects from New York and was extremely popular in the USA. They came to Australia to plan and advise on the construction of the playground after substantial funds were raised by the community and the Rotary Club of Essendon.
 
 
With planning permits the playground was constructed by around 1,000 volunteers over 5 days and is now under the care of the Moonee Valley City Council.
 
What an achievement in fundraising and the co-ordination of so many volunteers.

What a night!
 
On the 16th of February we welcomed our new members with a dramatic viewing of The Drovers Wife and several teary eyes at the luxury theatre in Eureka Tower.

 
Fellowship & camaraderie followed with the backdrop of city lights and a delightful supper, with not much left over.
 
 
A very pleasant evening.
