Many thanks to George and Anne for this wonderful offer.

 

 

Meeting Monday 22nd May

 

President John welcomed our guest speaker Cathy Day, from the City of Melville and John Milton from the Rotary Club of Kalamunda.  He reminded members of the generous donation by our last guest speaker, Ian Langlands, of two LED rechargeable flood lights and three large umbrellas.  These will be raffled tonight and at our next meeting.

 

Guest Speakers:

 

John Milton from the Rotary Club of Kalamunda told the meeting about how they run their Opera in the Park as our club is thinking about doing the same thing. 

He shared with us all of the planning issues and how the local council was very supportive and helpful.

They had between $6000 and $7000 from sponsors which was a great help.

Mick, Colin and Gail had visited Kadidjiny Park, Wireless Hill and a few local schools looking for a suitable venue.

After the meeting, John and Colin checked out one of the possible venues.

 

 

Colin then had great pleasure introducing Cathy Day from the City of Melville where she is in charge of cultural pursuits and runs five budgets.

John and Cathy

 

Cathy Day

‘City of Melville Cultural Projects’

Cathy was keen to tell us of all the cultural activities happening and planned for in Melville. 

She also explained why an idea from our club to construct a stage at Point Walter was not a good proposition, as they are expensive to construct and maintain

 

For the Point Walter Family Concert, each year, the City of Melville has a specially built stage.

She pointed out a number of well-known venues such as the Sydney Myer Music Bowl which was expensive to construct and maintain but is booked for only a few days each year.

There are a number of places suitable for concerts within Melville but all of them have limitations such as size, surface, sound etc.  It is a matter of finding a place suitable for your needs.

Point Walter Family Concert

 

Kadidjiny Park Amphitheatre is a delightful venue that can cater for about 500 people

 

She said that there is Community Grant Funding available from Melville City Council for cultural events.

 

Melville Council is happy to receive ideas and proposals so keep liaising with the Cultural Development Coordinator for creative conversations.

 

Cathy was a delightful and informative speaker.  It was interesting to hear of all the programs, services and events for children, seniors and citizens that the City of Melville offers.

 

 

Work Ready Seminar

Jeff announced that the Murdoch Student Emerging Leader program have been working on the Work Ready Seminar and have come up with a proposal that will take place in September.

It will be in the format of three one hour seminars to Year Ten students.

They will cover areas such as careers, interviews and writing skills.

Entertainment Books

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

You recoup your initial purchase by using only a couple of vouchers.  It is also a great way to try new restaurants and a wide range of places.

 

 

 

 

Thank You

 

REY wrote a lovely card thanking members for their thoughts and the beautiful flowers she received.

We wish her well and hope she is feeling much better very soon.

 

 

 

 

Winners

Carole won the Door Prize and Ron the raffle but no joker.

Jeff was delighted to win the LED light and Bruce a large umbrella in the guest speaker raffle.

We have another LED light and two umbrellas to raffle next week.

 

Chocolate Chip Cookies and Coffee

Thank you to Gail for cooking delicious cookies for us to enjoy.

Rotarians have a simple motto:

Service Above Self.

 

Our Four-Way Test is a simple ethical framework to help us in our lives every day. –

 

Of the things we think, say or do:

 

·        Is it the TRUTH?

·        Is it FAIR to all concerned?

·        Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?

·        Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned? -

 

Service Above Self

 

Congratulations to Pat Timmel for her successful and interesting Cancer Morning Tea held at the Mt Pleasant Uniting Church.

 

Pat and a small group of helpers cooked, made items to sell and provided a delicious morning tea.

 

Keith was on hand to help with parking before the event and vacuuming afterwards.

 

Well done to you both.

REPEAT

Update on the School of St Yared

 

Hugh Langridge, The Rotary Foundation WA Chairman, is making representations on our behalf to clarify the items that can be funded through our Global Grant application for the School of St Yared.

 

 

 

James Doogue is currently touring Europe and will fly to Addis Ababa to visit the school and speak to local school, community and government representatives.  He will be trying to gather information and data to help us meet the many compliance issues that we have to address to secure approval and funding of our Global Grant. 

Readers are reminded that contributions from districts attract a $ for $ subsidy whereas contributions from clubs get a 50c per $ subsidy. 

We have USD$10,000 from District 9465 that becomes USD$20,000 with a subsidy.

Without approval of our Global Grant the School of St Yared will miss out on that USD$20,000 (AUD$26,870) and our Club and others contributions will not get a 50% boost.  The Global Grant means tens of thousands of dollars to our project which is why the International Committee is working so hard to get it approved.

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.
