Greater Springfield Rotary is a community not-for-profit organisation, with a focus on serving the Greater Springfield Community as it grows towards being the third largest community in South East Queensland, after Brisbane and Ipswich
 
If you are interested in getting involved and giving something back to your community, please get in touch with us,
we would love to hear from you
We are almost back to normal 
With the COVID19 restrictions we have had to be less active than we would like, with many activities either suspended or cancelled. However behind the scenes we have been busy and we are now getting back into the swing of normal operations.
 
We have recommenced meeting face-to-face at Aveo, and we have commenced projects, with the launch of the inaugural Trash n Treasure Market (see adjacent article), and a Christmas Toy Drive for  Children in need through the Westside Community Centre, with support from Brookwater Country Club and Screamin' Beans Cafe. And we have launched an exciting project in the Democratic Republic of Congo in partnership with AUSCongo and the Rotary Club of Mbuji-Mayi in the DRC.
 
We will still have some meetings via 'Zoom', as it has proved to be a useful way of bring members together in the virtual world. 
 
More news on our upcoming plans will be available in the New Year.  In the mean time check out some our past activities in our stories (under media, news releases on menu)
 
Most projects start with 'one person's idea' so why not share your passion with us.
 
If you have an idea or would like to get involved with your community please contact us at greaterspringfieldrotary@gmail.com.
 
 
 
Inaugural Trash and Treasure Market a great success
The Greater Springfield community were treated to the opportunity to enjoy a local Trash n Treasure Market on Sunday 6 December.
Using a tried and tested model from other Rotary regions, Greater Springfield Rotary kicked off the inaugural Trash and Treasurer Market at the Education City Drive Carpark with 10 stall holders and quite a few enthusiastic shoppers.
The planning for the market commenced back in January 2020, but COVID 19 caused delays and postponements. Sunday's market was operated with a COVID Safe Plan in place and complied with all government requirements.
With the success of the inaugural market and positive feedback that it should be repeated regularly, Rotary are planning another market for February 2021.  So watch this space for further details.
 
 
Where and when we meet:
 
We have recommenced meetings on Thursday evenings at 6.30pm at Aveo.
Guests are always welcome.
We will however be having a break for Christmas and the New Year. 
 
Please contact our Secretary for details about coming meetings.
Next Public Event:
Nothing scheduled over the holidays, but we will be back with events in the New Year, with a trash n' Treasure market planned for February, and a Bunning BBQ coming up too.
