Another good meeting last night.



President John, gave an outline of the board meeting and some of the following decisions have been made:



Non-attendance at a meeting without an apology before the deadline will mean the meal will have to be paid for by that member.



Even with the new set up of averaging the 25 meals per week across the month, we still have to make up the leeway for any meal shortages less than the 25. So please take the time to let Greg know before 10.am on the meeting day.               


Reminder: Greg’s contact details are:

0435 305 199 or gwjames22@gmail.com




President John also gave the meeting days for the following:


Finance Committee:- 2nd Monday of the month


Charity Committee:- 1st Monday of the month


Board meetings:- 2nd Tuesday of the month



Last night’s Guest Speaker was Marilyn Garbin.


Marilyn gave us a short resume of her life so far and it is impressive. She has a new career now, being  a Careers Consultant. She also has a few other ‘strings to her bow’ as well.


Her topic was Get That Job – Careers in the 21st Century.


It was quite scary to hear how these days job applications are sorted without any human interaction during the initial processes.


Marilyn also has offered to look at any applications as a favour to members. A good offer if you have any family members who could use some professional help with their resume.


Carole did her usual professional introduction.


Also, hopefully we may be able to get Marilyn back as a member.

 If we can it will probably cut the club’s average age by half…..

Rotary International Opportunity: Final Offer


A reminder that the District is hosting a Vocational Training Team from Sri Lanka between 1st – 21st November this year.

Local Clubs are invited to host the team of four for 4 days in that period.

It is the hosts responsibility to home host and get them to their destination each morning either to UWA or WA State Laboratories. This includes pick up. In past times, host families usually arranged a roster.

They are a group of medical laboratory scientists.

Hosting like this gives you an opportunity to meet and get to know a person from another country. Competition is fierce for this kind of opportunity so let me know immediately if you want to help out.

Don’t delay

This also applies to those Attadale Rotarians flitting around the globe and Australia and presumably will be back by November.

I will try to get a definite date for the 4 days so it makes it easier to plan.


Sergeant’s Session:


Patricia warmed to her task last night and did a great job.

Copped a lot of us with good humour. After Ron Day (in absentia) paid for his English lesson suggestion last week, it was topped off by Kerry who paid $5 for the ‘privilege’ of asking Patricia for a translator. All in good fun.


Thanks to those few Rotarians who gave me their preferences for their choice of the logo. So far it is split down the middle. Even got a response from Jenny and Jim Calcei from O/S.

Puts some of us ‘stay at homes’ to shame doesn’t it.




STOP PRESS: Just spoke with young Max Anderson. I interrupted his afternoon tea with family out in the garden. He sounds as well as ever and feels well. Still has his moments but so far so good. He loved the visit from Anne and George and all the support he has been getting from members.
