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 24

 

President Colin gave a special welcome to our guest speaker, James Doogue, his son, Jordan and John Sharp’s guest, Dr Kelly Botha. 

Colin welcomed Olivia Haslam for the last time as a visitor, and her special guests: Daniel Fairbairn, Amanda Fairbairn, Dr Richard Woode, Souzi Clifford and Olivia’s son, Emmanuel Nason.

 

 

Daniel, Amanda,Emmanuel, Olivia, Souzi and Richard

 

Colin said he was really looking forward to James’s talk about his trip to Ethiopia and commented that he was in awe of the way James had grasped the situation regarding the Global Grant and the School of St Yared and done such valuable and productive work building relationships and progressing compliance issues.  James laid the foundations for John’s visit that we will also hear about tonight.

Colin thanked and congratulated Gillian for the very professional job she did organising and ticketing

John and Dr Kelly Botha

“The Sunshine Boys” at short notice.

 

Colin also thanked Giovanna for doing such a great job with attendance in Greg’s absence.

 

Dinner Entertainment

Colin had prepared a power point show of all the interesting and exciting things the Rotary Club of Attadale have been involved in since the beginning of 2017.  It was very enlightening to see the wide range of projects featured.

Guest Speaker:  James Doogue

 

Mal had great pleasure introducing James.

James is relatively new to Rotary but because of his involvement with helping schooling and housing in Cambodia and his keen interest in a wide range of issues he wanted to learn more about our project with the School of St Yared in Ethiopia.

James travelled to Addis Ababa in Ethiopia and visited the school as well as meeting all of the people involved as well as many of the students and their families.

Jordan and Dad, James

 

       

He was very impressed with the commitment and standard of education being achieved.

His visit was very helpful in meeting with members of the local Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Bole who will be involved with Hope for Children and the school in the whole project.

A big thank you to James for his visit, the interesting talk and amazing pictures.

 

Induction of Olivia Haslam

 

Olivia Haslam was inducted into the Rotary Club of Attadale in a very moving ceremony.

 

The ceremony was a good opportunity for all present to hear about the personal qualities needed to be a good Rotarian.

 

Members become part of a world-wide organisation of business and professional leaders who are united in fellowship to:

·        provide humanitarian service,

·        to encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and

·        to create goodwill and achieve peace throughout the world.

 

 

Olivia being introduced by Carole who will be her mentor

We were reminded of the Four Way Test and the Object of Rotary

Olivia and her guest Dr Richard Woode

 

 

 

 

Thank you, Olivia, for the impressive and delicious cupcakes that members and guests enjoyed with their tea and coffee.

We had a choice of Lemon Curd or Berry, each topped with an iced Rotary wheel.

 

They were supplied by Olivia’s sister, Theresa Francis, of the New York Cake Co.

 

John’s visit to Ethiopia

Past President John Sharp has just returned from Addis Ababa where he followed on from James’s visit.  He spent time in negotiation and building relationships with the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Bole.

John has spent many hours finalising paper

work to meet all of the conditions and requirements for our Global Grant and hopes to have it submitted by the end of August.

He said that there was a delay in the boarding school construction as the blue prints had not arrived.

 

Kerry and Abby, James, and most recently John, have made visits to Ethiopia to get to know the situation at first hand and to meet with the relevant people, validate the worth of the project to assist the School of St Yared, and progress the compliance issues for our Global Grant.

 

Signing the MOU

To the right we see President Colin signing the Memorandum of Understanding negotiated by John with the RC of Bole and Hope for Children.

This is an extremely important document for compliance with the terms and conditions of our Global Grant.  This brings us another step closer to having the Global Grant approved that means an extra $58,125 (plus) will be available to assist our charities.  John thought that his trip to Ethiopia has taken many months off the completion time and increased the certainty of approval from around fifty percent to ninety.  Well done John.

 

Theatre Night

Gillian thanked everyone who attended the recent play The Sunshine Boys.

We were very grateful for the invitation from the Rotary Club of Fremantle to join them in this fund raiser and $230 was raised for our Club account.

 

Opera in the Park

There will be a meeting for the committee next Monday, July 31st at Tompkins on Swan

 

Employability Project

Jeff sent out an email on 17th July 2017 to all members outlining The Murdoch Student Emerging Leaders (MSEL) project that has been working on the past Work Ready Seminar ideas for Melville Senior High School.

He still needs five Rotarians to help work with students on resumes from 1.00pm – 3.00pm on

7 August and 28 August.

Please contact Jeff if you can help.

 

Family of Rotary

Ian reported that Rey O’Dorisio is still in hospital.  She may be there for a while waiting on the results of tests.  Jacquie and Gail will visit her this week.

Greg has had a pace maker fitted and is now home but in quarantine.  He can be contacted by phone.

Our love and best wishes are with them and also Trish, Bev and David.

 

Winners

Congratulation to Patricia on winning the Door Prize and to Gillian on winning the raffle.  The Joker valued at around $800 still remains hidden in the quite thin pack.

SPECIAL THEATRE NIGHT

Thursday 20th July

Many thanks to the Rotary Club of Fremantle for inviting us to this fun night out.

It was good to catch up with Rotarians from three other clubs and “The Sunshine Boys” was very witty and enjoyable.

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.

The Rotary Charity House Concept

The Rotary Charity House is the brain child of Kerry Parsons and similar in concept to our original charity house built in the early 1980s that funded the establishment of the Neil Henley Foundation that has helped fund our charitable work for over thirty years.

The idea is that we will build a house and seek sponsors to donate or discount goods and/or services.  The more donations we receive the less it will cost us to build the house and the greater the profit will be when we sell the house.  These profits will go to RCA charities with a substantial amount to be allocated to the “Relocation, Refurbishment and Expansion of the School of St Yared” in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.  We have been receiving extremely generous support from many individuals and companies, both large and small.  We are keen to thank all of our sponsors for their support by recognizing their contributions as widely as possible; using their services whenever possible, and recommending them to our friends and relations.

 

Please support our valued sponsors.
