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

At next Monday’s meeting, we will seek your opinion on this idea.

 

 

 

 

Meeting June 10

 

Acting Sergeant Ian called for one minute’s silence to mark the passing of Rotary International President Elect Sam Owori.

 

President Colin thanked Ian Pittaway for taking on the role as Sergeant for the evening.

Colin had great pleasure in welcoming District Governor Bruce Lynch and his wife Glenda and Assistant Governor Lesley Combes to the meeting.  He was also delighted to welcome the partners who had come along.

Please refer to Jeff’s email 17th July 2017 sent to all members

Improving Employability Skills for Year 10 Students (Previously Work Ready Seminar)

At this stage as part of our involvement with this project the RCA has been asked if we have 5 members who would be interested in being involved with workshops on Resumes and Interviews which are to be held on 7 August and 28 August.

A survey of students is being carried out to determine the kind of career pathways they are interested in exploring.

Depending on the results we will be asked if there are Rotarians with relevant experience who would be interested in speaking to students.

 

Slide Shows

During the meal, everyone was able to watch a video on “Love in a Shoe Box” and a slide show of the nearly completed Rotary Charity House.

 

Guest Speaker

 

Colin had great pleasure introducing our

District Governor Bruce Lynch.

Bruce gave a very eloquent and interesting talk on his plans for his year as DG and how he would like District 9465 to support RI President Ian Riseley’s vision for 2017-2018.

Clubs that are strong and making a positive

difference in our communities achieve goals

related to Rotary’s three strategic priorities:

·        to support and strengthen clubs,

·        focus and increase humanitarian service,

·         and enhance Rotary’s public image and awareness.

In 2017-18, we will answer the question “What is Rotary?” with the theme Rotary: Making a Difference

 

 

The Rotary Club of Attadale would like to wish Bruce and Glenda a very enjoyable and successful year.

We look forward to working with them and really ‘Making a Difference’.

They were both presented with a club Coaster in thanks for coming to our meeting.

 

 

Past Presidents’ Award

 

Carole and Mick awarded a very surprised Kerry Parsons the Past Presidents’ Award for his hard work and commitment to building the Rotary Charity House and his continuing work in helping those in need, particularly children.

 

Congratulations and well done Kerry.

Winners

Congratulation to Bruce on winning the Door Prize and to Abby on winning the raffle.  The Joker still remains hidden in the pack.

 

Fines

With the vision on slides, Colin related a very funny story of Mick having very cleverly backed his trailer into the Rotary Charity House garage to offload the carpet only to find he had just an inch clearance on

his side of the car.  This meant Mick had to struggle past the steering wheel and over the centre console and out of the passenger’s door.  For a man of Mick’s impressive stature this was quite a task.  Mick was not fined for this, only the people who laughed at his predicament!

Love in a Shoe Box

 

Jim brought along another 30 boxes from 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.

ROTARY HISTORY ~ 60th Anniversary of the establishment of the UWA Medical School

 

When The West Australian newspaper ran a full-page article celebrating the establishment of the Medical School at UWA Max Anderson was disappointed that the considerable role played by Rotary was not mentioned.  He wrote this letter to the editor but it was not published.  The article below Max’s letter gives due credit to Rotary and is an interesting read.  Thanks to Jacquie Pittaway for drawing it to our attention.

 

 

 

The Editor

WA Newspapers

 

Dear Sir,

 

Reference is made to the full page appreciation in the Weekend West, 10 – 11 June of the large part played by the ordinary citizens of Western Australia in the establishment of the UWA Medical School in 1956.  I feel that in this acknowledgement attention should also be drawn to the 858 members of the 18 Rotary clubs in Western Australia who in September 1955 launched a public appeal for ₤40,000 from within a State of some 650,000 people to establish this faculty.

 

In the Geoffrey Bolton Lecture given by Professor Alan Robson AM, Vice- Chancellor of the University of Western Australia in November 2011 he said that the foundation of the Medical School spurred by Rotary, with the support of a post war community, won admiration from around the world and that the University and its Medical School would always be indebted to this action taken by Rotary.

 

Yours faithfully

 

Max Anderson
