Membership proposal

Sarah Banks of 8 Cantray Ave, Applecross, has been proposed by John Bray for membership of the Rotary Club of Attadale.  Sarah has long experience in social work and counselling, however her current activity is jewelry designing which would be her rotary classification. Sarah is familiar with the Rotary movement, her father and husband both having been rotarians. Any objections to this proposal must be lodged with the Secretary in writing no later than Friday 28 November 2008.


Youth programs


Thousands of people aged 30 and younger participate in Rotary programs to learn skills that will help them become future leaders.


Youth programs allow participants to discover more about themselves and the world by participating in community projects, leadership training, or cultural exchanges. 


Young people also learn about the principles of ethics, service, and fellowship that Rotarians exemplify.




                         Rotary Youth Exchange
 Rotary Youth Exchange students may spend up to a year living with host families and attending school in a different country.


 men and women ages 18 to 30 can help in their community through Rotaract, a Rotary-sponsored service club.


RYLA emphasizes leadership, citizenship, and personal growth.



                                    Call for applications for the 2009 International RYLA
 The International RYLA is a special, invitation-only event where young leaders from all across the world come together to celebrate Rotary's commitment to youth.
