Our love and thoughts are with them both.

The Rotary Foundation Dinner is to be held at the Parmelia Hilton on May 19th.at a cost of $125 p/person.  Bill Boyd RI President will be the key note speaker.

She also thanked Colin for his Power Point from the Charity Golf Day.  The members enjoyed re-living memories of the great and successful day.

 

Happy Birthday

Colin presented Martin and Llew each with a birthday muffin and candle to celebrate their birthdays.

 

Congratulations and Thank You

Colin thanked Patricia for manning the spinner at the Melville Markets for the purpose of raising money to enable Jade Lewis to re print her book.

Patricia worked from 6.00am to 10.00am on two Sundays and raised $397.  Patricia said she had help from Carole.

 

Guest Speaker

Robin Robinson

'Celebrating International Midwifery Day'

The members were very interested in hearing a very qualified nurse and midwife as well as a fantastic wife and mother talk about

'Life as a  Midwife.

Robin has had extensive experience in this field both in Australia and Scotland

She explained that there was a lot of difference between low risk and high risk births.

The value of keeping healthy and watching weight gain is very important.

Robin did a project on the impact of obesity on child bearing women.

Attitudes and practices have changed over the years.  Nowadays the expectant parents are well informed before and during the pregnancy so are able to make informed decisions especially if complications arise.

 

Cake and Chocolates

Thank you Colin for cooking cakes, slices, muffins or biscuits each week for the members to enjoy with their coffee.  Thank you to Abby for bringing chocolates to share this week.

 

Showcase Meeting Monday May 23rd

This is an opportunity to show what our club is about.

John reminded members of this, encouraging members, partners, friends and invited guests to attend and the email he sent to everyone with all the details.

 

Entertainment Books

Martin has Entertainment Books for sale at $65 each.  The club receives $13 for each book sold so please help Martin in this fund raising venture.

Help and House

Kerry told the members of a fire that destroyed 60 houses in the Philippines.  He was able to provide some money to help with the rebuilding and look after a young girl while the building took place.

He would like people to donate children's books and comics written in English for children in the Philippines.  He will organise for them to be sent there in a box.

The plans for the Charity house to be built here in Perth will go to Council this week and hopefully work will commence soon.

 

GADGAC

Bruce had all the pamphlets ready for members to take for delivery in their assigned areas.

Collection day is May 22nd from 9.00am to midday.

 

Prizes

Congratulations to Abby for winning the Door Prize and Greg the raffle.  Garth was the winner in Heads and Tails

 

 

Monday, May 16th

 

President Carole welcomed John Kevan from Applecross RC, Brian Marshall from Melville City Council, Ray Glickman from Amana Living, Garth Curran and Elaine Bennett.

 

Fair Information

Patricia introduced Brian Marshall who is on the Melville City Council Community Development Team - West.

He outlined things that need to be considered when thinking of planning a fair, such as

·      choice of venue

·      traffic management that can be very expensive

·      selling the event to nearby businesses

 

Best wishes

Ian told members that Max and Winston were feeling better. 

All members wished them both well.

 

Great News from Andrew Pittaway

Ian had great pleasure in reporting on information that his son Andrew had received:-

'This morning the Commonwealth War Grave Commission accepted evidence that Dennis and I presented for Lance Corporal Vivian Taylor 23rd Battalion AIF.

He was under an unknown soldier headstone in Villers Bretonneux Military Cemetery and he will now be given a named headstone with a rededication ceremony.'

 

Induction of Garth Curran

Carole had great pleasure in inducting Garth to become a member of the RC of Attadale.

He was sponsored by Kerry and was given the classification of Entrepreneur.

He will be on the Marketing and Membership committee and Martin will be his mentor for the first year then Carole will take over.

The members were very pleased to welcome Garth to the Attadale RC.

Guest Speaker

 

Ray Glickman is the CEO of Amana Living, one of WA’s largest aged and community care providers.  He came to the sector following many years in local government, where he was most recently the CEO of the City of Fremantle.

In recent years, Ray has led Amana Living to win numerous National and State Excellence Awards and previously led the City of Fremantle to win the Alcoa Leadership Award as the Leading Best Practice Council in WA.

     

Ray is Director and former Chairman of Aged & Community Services WA, Director and former Deputy President of Aged & Community Services Australia, a Board Member of Ocean Gardens, United Way WA & Writing WA and a member of the Statutory Planning Committee of the West Australian Planning Commission.

He has also served as the President of the Fremantle Chamber of Commerce and Chairman of both Therapy Focus and the WA Maritime Museum Advisory Committee.

With his extensive experience Ray was able to tell us that

·      consumer directed home care is the way of the future

·      people need to assess their own situation early and make plans for the future

·      retirement villages are an excellent way of delivering services

·      technology will be very prevalent

 

 

Ray is pictured here showing John Kevan his first novel, “Reality”, which was published by Fremantle Press in February 2014.

Ray is the co-author of “50 Ways to Achieve Staff Cover”

 

Ray will be transitioning out of Amana Living over the next few months to focus on writing and establishing his new consulting business, From Left Field.

 

 

Please Support our Movie Fund Raiser

 

Rod urged everyone to assist in making this a success.  If every member invited 6 to 10 people to come along it would be a successful fund raiser.
