Rotary Albert Park (part of Rotary International) is a group of neighbours, friends, and community leaders providing humanitarian service, encouraging high ethical standards in all pursuits and helping build goodwill and peace locally and worldwide. Our club was established in 1992 and has a long history of service. We have a membership of about 65 with a 50% male/female balance.
The festival commences on Friday July 29 at 6.30pm and will be open on both the Friday and Saturday 10am - 4pm. It will showcase written works by APC students and feature author talks, writers workshops and a host of literary activities designed to inspire the imagination.
The Book Fair, now in its 13th year, will be offering an extensive range of books for all ages at bargain prices - children's, fiction and non fiction, art, history, sporting, humour, classics, gardening, cooking and self help.
Once again all money raised is distributed to those in need in our local community. So far this year we have raised in excess of $16,000 and have also set up and supplied 100's of good quality books to Napier Street Aged Care and Community housing at bottom of Victoria Avenue. Children's books have also been donated to the kindergarten at Park Towers and St Kilda free libraries.
They hope that you will join them to celebrate Women in Aussie Rules and their positive effect on systemic change in our community.
