Festivities of Oktoberfest 2018

Posted by Amritpal Singh on 26 October 2018
Festivities of Oktoberfest 2018

Shirin Geisel was a German Youth Exchange Student from Germany (sponsored by our club) and during her stay here, she initiated the Oktoberfest festivities which started way back on Tuesday 29th October 2013. Since then, our club has kept this tradition going where it is a night filled with culture, fun and laughter.

We had the fifth (5th) Oktoberfest celebrations on Tuesday night 23rd October 2018 and twenty-six (26) people came along to learn about beers from the Belgian Beer Cafe hosts, Izak & Fraser. It was also a night we celebrated Shahn Griffin's twenty-fifth (25th) birthday who is President Amritpal Singh's brother-in-law to be.

As it was the night before World Polio Day and our Major Donor Giver Dinner event (both held on 24th October 2018), we raised $100 through a game of head-and-tails which District Governor Nominee Philip Archer and President Robert Fisher from Rotary Club of Melbourne won a price each. The job of ending polio is not over and we have to keep pushing on till it is fully eradicated from the face of this earth.
