A Request for Used Stamps from Robin Hamilton

 

We all get mail and chuck out the envelopes into the bin.  Maybe not so much mail these days!  I have been the unofficial collector of ‘used stamps’ in the Club for some time.  So far, this year I have collected none from the Club apart

 

Old Letters, Mail, Old Stamps, Philately, Collection

from myself.  I have one collector outside the Club who continually sends me a supply which she gets from several sources.  I pass the stamps to our Honorary member, Trevor Leaver, who has a contact who puts the stamps to good use.

If you want to feel good, bring your used (or unused stamps) to our meetings, or send me an email to rbnh@westnet.com.au.  I shall be glad to hear from you.

Charity Golf Day

Presentation to the Motor Neurone Disease Association

Gail was delighted to present a cheque for $21 734, to Gavin Connaughton, Executive Officer for the Motor Neurone Disease Association on behalf of Rod Rate who was not able to attend.

Each year the RC of Attadale, the RC of Fremantle, Spinnaker and MND work together under the amazing chairmanship of Rod, to hold a Charity Golf Day at Royal Fremantle Golf Club for two charities: -

Motor Neurone Disease and Spinnaker

As a result of the very generous support of sponsors, donors, participating teams and the many helpers a total of $43 468 was raised

Each charity received a cheque for $21 734.

 

Sandra Kerbler and Martin Houchin

Guest Speaker:

Martin had great pleasure introducing a fellow scientist.

Sandra Kerbler

‘Journey to Antarctica’

Sandra went on a Homewood Bound Antarctic expedition with 75 other women scientists.

This was a ground-breaking leadership, strategic and science initiative and outreach for women.

It aimed to heighten the influence and impact of women with a science background in order to influence policy and decision making as it shapes our planet.

 

It was with great pride that we heard the Rotary National Youth Science Forum had a huge impact on Sandra’s life.

Prior to attending the forum Sandra had decided to follow a career in the visual arts.

Her new career direction led her to gain a degree in Science with Honours in Genetics.

She is now doing a PhD project

‘How does temperature affect energy metabolism in plants?’

She hopes this will lead to more cold tolerant plants, in particular Australia’s wheat crop.

 

Guest Speakers

Ian asked that members pass on to him and Jacquie the names of any people who could be invited to be a guest speaker at our meetings.

 

Thank you from a Rotary Youth Leadership Award Attendee  (RYLA)

 

 

 

TO THE GOOD PEOPLE OF ATTADALE ROTARY CLUB

 

I was very fortunate to be given the opportunity to attend a RYLA camp at Serpentine at the beginning of this year.

 

This terrific experience was made possible by the excellent volunteer facilitators and most importantly, by the generosity of your club.

 

To say the experience was life changing is an understatement.  I learned so many skills and in particular, I learned more about myself. These things I still utilise now and I believe they will help me throughout my life.

 

These include:

. Team bonding

. Respect for others

. Integrity

. Encouraging one another

. Really listening

 . Honouring others when well deserved

. Focussing on the strengths of others

         

 

The group I was assigned to, have kept in contact and will remain friends.  We have already met on a few occasions since the camp.

 

In appreciation of the opportunity you have provided for me, I have joined the Rotaract club in Gosnells. 

 

In my daily life, I spread the word about the great work Rotary do in the community and have encouraged friends to do the leadership course.  I would also like to be a facilitator at one in the future.

 

My sincere thanks and best wishes to you all.

 

Kind regards

 

Lucian Mackie

 

Winners

Robin won the Door Prize.

Kaye Southern won two raffles, an LED rechargeable flood light and a large umbrella.

Jim also won a large umbrella.  All of these prizes were generously donated by our last guest speaker, Ian Langlands.

Judy Marsh won perfume beautifully presented in a ring which was generously donated by Abby.

The items raffled over two weeks raised $254.

 

Cakes and Coffee

Thank you to Giovanna, Nick and Gail for providing delicious cakes and slices that everyone enjoyed with their coffee.

 

Entertainment Books

Martin has Entertainment Books for sale at $70.  Each sale returns $14 to our club.

Condolences

The members and friends of the Rotary Club of Attadale offer their love and sincere sympathy to Ian and Jacquie Pittaway and their family on the recent loss of their brother-in-law Terry Loughnan.

 

 

 

 

A great day with great friends

A big thank you to our President’s wife, Trish Sharp, for organising a very enjoyable lunch for the ladies at Willow Pond.

There was lots of fun, fellowship and delicious

food.

She also invited District Governor Linda McLerie.

We all enjoyed her delightful company and were

pleased she found the time in her busy schedule

to join us.

I didn’t find out till later that day that it was Linda

and Greg’s 33rd Wedding Anniversary so we were

honoured she chose to spend the afternoon with

us.

Congratulations and best wishes to you both.

 

 

 

Wow we have been busy!

Colin made a power point display about all the activities the RC of Attadale members have been involved in since January.

It ran throughout most of the meeting and was really appreciated by members and guests alike.

Many positive comments were made on the number and wide range of activities that were featured.

Thank you, Colin, for all the photos and power points you make and present for us all to enjoy.

 

 

This week’s About Rotary

 

District Governor Elect, Bruce Lynch, is keen to not use acronyms.

 

 

 

 

What is Rotary Australia World Community Service (RAWCS)?

 

 

 

It is the Australian arm of Rotary International that assists Rotary Clubs with the development and management of international community service projects.

Whether it's projects to

·        help rebuild in the aftermath of disaster

·        programs to bring education to countries where illiteracy stifles development

·        or bringing health care and medical aid to those who can least access it

It supports Rotary Clubs in

·        sending teams of volunteers to developing countries to provide assistance upon the development of much needed facilities, especially within the health and education areas

·         advice, assistance and training in building, construction and commercial operations (for example, assistance in obtaining micro finance)

·         providing support to developing communities in establishing themselves.
