Business Breakfasts Our Business Breakfasts are very
popular with everyone from a wide range of
business attendees to our local secondary
school students. The Breakfasts raise
funds for both local and overseas
projects that we support.
Please join us at the next one.

Building Stronger Communities Grant
This program provides Federal funds to improve local community participation and vibrancy.
It is exciting news for the Club that the application for a $16,000 grant through this scheme has been approved. This is in addition to $3000 from Knox Minor grants.
Congratulations to Marg, Ian and Heather for all the work that went into completing documentation, and for the assistance of other Club members in organising quotations for the work that will be done.
This grant will be spent on refurbishing the kitchen in the Ferntree Gully Guide Hall, which will be of great benefit to all the groups who use this hall, in particular the Girl Guides and Foothills Community Care.

Santa Sacks for Backpacks4Kids
After a quick dinner (thank you Corinne) all Club members were able
to lend a hand in a production line completing Santa sacks. These Santa
sacks will be used by Backpacks 4 VIC Kids when they distribute Christmas
gifts to children in out-of-home care. Last year they required 4000 Santa
sacks, so it is a great idea to be working on this early in the year. It was
wonderful to be joined by DG Alma too..
