The Rotary Club of Essendon's beehive bushfire recovery project, organised by the committee of Alistair Fraser has now been delivered on Friday October 15.
Sixty beehive boxes, were delivered to the President of the TRARALGON Central Rotary Club, Warren McPherson, for distribution and final assembly. Warren expressed his heart felt appreciation to the RCE for it's generous donation and hopes to visit our club in the near future.
We wish to thank, Patrick Honeyborne from the Rotary Club of East Keilor for assisting  us with the delivery and for their support and contribution to our Centennial Bee Happy  project. The Rotary club of Essendon, under past President David Abbey, committed to building 100 beehive boxes to mark the centenary. 
With the support of the Strathmore Men's Shed and it merry band of dedicated workers, the project got off to a fine start. We are grateful to the shed's coordinators Steve Holman and Rod McLeod for their  unwavering leadership. 
The MVCC, have  appointed Jacinta Martin as their bee project manager and  has supported our Bee Happy endeavours. 
Local beekeepers have rallied behind the project and as a consequence formed the MV beekeeping club, and elected Essendon rotarian, Michael Portelli as their inaugural President. 
Breaking News!! Michael Portelli and Andrew Panjkov have just rescued a bee swarm from the IGA supermarket in Essendon and safely relocated the Queen bee and her followers.
We wish to thank the RCE members for their time and contribution to the BeeHapppy project, in particular President Sunil Perera and Environmental representative Andrew Panjkov for their continuing support and encouragement. 
Well done Rotary Club of Essendon for achieving your  Rotary Australia Centennial 100 beehive project.
