Cody Weightman and Hayden Crozier kicked-off the schools visits, stopping off at Lumen Christi Primary School.

Meanwhile across at the Town Hall, Senior Coach Luke Beveridge kicked off official proceedings at the Civic Reception.

And across at the Ballarat Library, Caleb Daniel and Riley Garcia helped launch the Bulldogs Read Program. 

Bulldogs Read is a literacy program aimed at giving primary school pupils from grade three to six an opportunity to participate in reading and writing workshops, and activities and events in conjunction with the City of Ballarat Libraries and primary schools in the Ballarat region.

And passing on their knowledge to the students of Magpie Primary School was Matt Suckling and Sam Lloyd. Don't me misled by the school's name, there were plenty of young red, white and blue fans.

For Ballarat locals, don't forget to visit the Bulldogs Shop in Ballarat this afternoon.

A surprise visit for one very special contributor to our Son's of the West Men's Health Program in Melton.

Now for a change of pace, just to keep the boys on edge...

Adam Parker is a local artisan knife maker from the outskirts of Ballarat, who has been making knives for over 25 years.

Not to be outdone, Mitch Wallis had been working on a project of his own across town.

And to finish the day, we stopped by some local football clubs.

And that’s a (Mission) wrap.

It wasn't just Ballarat where the Bulldogs headed to for our AFL Community Camp, with a number of AFL and AFLW players heading to Melton and Baccus Marsh - visiting schools, clinics and community centres.
