ROTARY SPECIAL MONTHS:    AUGUST IS MEMBERSHIP AND EXTENSION

 

 

 

Monday, August 10th, 2015

 

President Carole Maxwell welcomed all members of Attadale and Booragoon to this first combined meeting and special visitors Fred Soale and Mariann Zeigler

President Selwyn Castles welcomed our guest speaker Yared Wolde.

 

All present then introduced themselves and had a brief comment on their role in Rotary.

 

Patricia Robertson reported that she had selected two students for RYPEN and hoped that Booragoon would sponsor one.  She and Ian Pittaway will be presenting a set of microscopes to Attadale PS at their assembly on Friday.

 

The door prize was won by Nick O'dorisio.  Patricia Robertson won The Joker but failed to draw the lucky card.

Jim Calcei won the Heads 'n' Tails and donated back the bottle of port.

 

Bruce Robinson gave details of Headwest's Brain Awareness Week event on Friday, August 14th.  He has raffle books for Climb for a Smile with tickets at $10 with prizes of $7,500.

 

Acting Sergeant, Ian Pittaway, had a lively fines sessions with proceeds split between the two clubs

 

Guest Speaker:  Yared Wolde

St Yared's School in Ethiopia

 

Selwyn Castles introduced Yared noting that he was an orphan losing his father in the war and the rest of his family to TB.

Yared set up the St Yared's School in Addis Ababa to give select children from very poor families a superior education to equip them to become the future leaders of Ethiopia.  The school has grown from 44 to 218 students and individual students can be sponsored for $1,100 that provides them with meals as well as all of their educational needs. 

Booragoon RC has been sponsoring two students for three years.  To learn more visit http://www.schoolofstyared.com/

 

Bruce Robinson introduced Mariann Zeigler, a previous Exchange Student from Germany, who is here studying International Relations and seeking work experience.

 

Carole Maxwell thanked Booragoon members for attending and hoped that combined meetings may become regular events.

 

 

Monday, June 22nd, 2015

 

 

 

 

Acting President John Sharp reported that David Maxwell was in hospital with pneumonia and that we all wished him well.

 

He thanked everyone for coming and welcomed Rob and Marianne Harding from Somerton Park RC in SA.  They told us a little about their club and presented their club banner to John who in turn presented them with a RC of Attadale coaster.

 

 

Colin announced that Bicton PS were having a Laser Show as part of Science Week on Friday night and had invited Attadale RC to run a sausage sizzle there.

Colin and Gail will run it.  Many thanks to Martin who very kindly offered to come and help.

We have been offered a few sausage sizzles.  If anyone has a suitable barbecue and or a shelter that we could use on these occasions it would be much easier and time saving not to have to borrow the items from other sources.

 

Ian reminded members of the guest speaker for next week, Rebecca Clarkson who will talk about "Fremantle 100 Hampton Road" a social housing project..

He encouraged members to invite family, friends and past members to come and hear the talk.

 

Kerry announced that after hearing last week's guest speaker, Yared Wolde, talk about the school he had set up in Addis Ababa he and Abby have planned to visit the school.

 

John gave a short Board report saying that there had been no resolution re the Charity Budget.

Regarding prospective members, it would be up to the person responsible for them coming to ascertain if they would be attending and therefore be having a meal.

There will be a succession planning meeting on August 25th at John's.

 

Patricia reported that she and Ian had presented 30 microscopes to the Attadale PS for which they were very grateful.  They also left membership cards in the staffroom.

Patricia has organised for two students from Clontarf to attend RYPEN on September 11th

at the Serpentine Camping Centre in Jarrahdale.  As she is unable to take the boys there, Tom Slater very kindly offered to take them

 

Betty has sent out invoices for subscriptions and asked if everyone could please pay them fairly quickly.

 

After Jim's fines session Colin won the door prize and Tom was unlucky not to draw the joker.

 

Anzac biscuits provided by Colin were enjoyed with coffee.

Best wishes to Alan and Peter

The 5,000 Meals Project is delivered in partnership with the Home Economics Institute of Australia (WA Division) and supported by generous hospitality, media, commercial and industrial organisations

The project aims to develop skills, reduce food wastage and assist people in need within the Perth community.

Teachers and students work with chefs and apprentices from prominent Perth hotels and restaurants to produce 5,000 meals for people in need.

 

The food required to produce the meals is provided by Foodbank and other sponsors. 

The vision is to inspire youth.

This is the third year and so far 1000 students from primary, secondary city and country schools have been involved.

5000 meals is promoted with a number of activities such as combining with St Vinnies to run the CEO's sleep out where the students cook the breakfast.

The whole project is run by enthusiastic and committed volunteers

 

Scott Michael and Wendy Triplett

Catherine MacDougall and Jenny McGillivray
