Assistant Governor, Leslie Combe, has suggested that the clubs in our cluster have a combined Christmas Dinner Meeting this year. 

Colin put this to members and there was a strong preference 15 to 5 in favour of trying a combined function.

 

 

 

Meeting July 31

 

President Colin gave a special welcome to our guest speaker, Liam Best and his partner Sophia Fernandes, his mother Lee Best and her friend Julie Miller, Souzi Clifford and her friend Selena Koo, Olivia’s friend Carl McCombe and John’s guest Deo Severin.

Dinner Entertainment

 

We enjoyed seeing some of the highlights of our Club’s activities so far in 2017.  It has been an interesting and exciting time and looks like staying that way.

 

 

 

Guest Speaker:  Liam Best

‘Global Grant Scholar in Waiting’

 

Ian had great pleasure introducing Liam Best who is working towards a Global Grant Scholarship to further his studies in the United Kingdom.

Liam spoke about his present work in Myanmar as a Communications Officer at the International Organization for Migration.

He told us of some of his experiences, the humanitarian needs and some facts about Myanmar.

Sophia and Liam

 

·        53 million people

·        70% in rural areas

·        Most work as fishermen or farmers

·        1 in 4 live below the poverty line

·        Healthcare is a big issue

·        It is in a big risk disaster area

·        Ongoing conflict in many areas

 

There is much work to be done combatting a wide range of problems as well as educating the people to deal with the issues.

It was a very interesting talk about a wide range of problems

and issues

Open Night for Members, Partners and Friends

 

Please put this date in your calendar: Monday August 14

 

Dr Ameer Ali ~ Lecturer at Murdoch University

 

Doctor Ameer Ali is a long time and well-respected Educator at Murdoch University.

He is also a prominent member of Australian Muslim society and has held advisory roles both with his own community and the Australian Government

The popular press, notably the West Australian and the Australian, have also sought and published articles from Dr Ali.

 

Opera in the Park

Rod told the members that a meeting of the committee was considering all aspects of holding an Opera in the Park on Sunday, November 19.

The proposal is that we piggy-back on the event held by the Rotary Club of Kalamunda one week later.

Various venues have been looked at, and so far, the most suitable are Tompkins on Swan, Kadidjiny Park or Murdoch University.  However, each has some problems to overcome.  Proposed expenditure to run this event is approximately $25 000.  The proposal will be put to the Board.

If this event proceeds it will involve every member of the club and Rod Is seeking that commitment us all

 

Family of Rotary

Ian said that Jacquie and Gail had visited Rey in Hollywood Hospital.  She was in good spirits and is awaiting more test results.  She has to be on oxygen permanently but is looking forward to coming to Rotary.  Nick is holding up well.

Greg is slowly getting better and is now able to drive to the local shops.

Trish is improving.

Jacquie and Ian ask that people let them know if anyone is unwell.

 

Employability Seminar

Jeff said the Seminar starts next Monday and he needed one more Rotarian to take part in panel discussions on Resumes.  Martin very kindly volunteered.

 

Spend a Happy Dollar

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hand me downs

Colin told an interesting tale about the good old days when everyone wore hand-me-downs and it had an hilarious punch line.

Winners

Gillian won the door prize and Bev the raffle but not the Joker.  There are very few cards left so there will be winner soon!!!!

Love in a Shoe Box

 

Jim is assisting Nancy Bray who co-ordinates the “Love in a Shoe Box” project.

Members are asked to put items into the boxes to suit either a boy or girl of a certain age.

All the information is in the accompanying booklet.

Each year the members are very generous and supportive of this project that brings a lot of joy and happiness to children who have very little.

 

Please remember to bring the boxes to a Rotary meeting soon.

 

 

 

Rotary Charity House    Sponsor of the Week

 

BGC has been a huge supporter of our Rotary Charity House.  They have supplied the cement and all building materials including the insulation; and all of the doors and door furniture; and all of the major kitchen appliances.

All of this has been provided at no charge!  What wonderful, caring people!
