Last Sunday, members from the Rotary Club of Bishopdale Burnside were in attendance at Celebrate Bishopdale 2019 at Bishopdale Park.

The event which has been 7 years going featured a selection of stalls mainly run by local community groups, commercial vendors and entertainment on stage.

Two of our members were the MC's for event and introduced a number of local cultural and musical acts that formed the entertainment on stage.

Other members manned our stall where we provided face painting for the kids (a couple of our members also getting in on the act). As well, we had bubble blowing and provided a interactive activity for the children to build a key ring holder using materials provided by Bunnings Shirley.

All in all it was a pleasant Community Day with warm weather.

Thanks to Matt and his team for representing the club on the day. A special thanks to our 3 Girl Guides who did a wonderful job on the face painting, and earned credits towards their Community Badges.

In case you are wondering - the dates for our next BOOKarma is April 17-19th 2020.
