Donation in Kind Break-up Barbeque

from w
Some of the run-up to Christmas parties are a bit overwhelming and that's how I felt yesterday, shopping for a halo for an 'angel' in a play and reluctantly writing out cards to post, then last night we drove our son to the Melbourne airport for the flight to Fiji. Just before the Air Pacific landed about 10.30 p.m. three-quarter of the lights went out in the terminal building and passengers couldn't be checked as they entered the tunnel and passport control etc. Hey, I hope the tower computers are still working! I felt relieved when I saw a bit later than the Air Pacific had landed okay.

But today was pleasant with a couple of hours sorting books and then a barbeque out at the Donation in Kind depot in North Geelong. A whole lot of books had arrived this week from schools changing over their library books. Also dozens of hospital beds. Also wooden toys,handcrafted by 'Buster'.

A professional chef who is a Rotarian prepared a delicious lunch for a bunch of volunteers.
