ROTARY SPECIAL MONTHS:    NOVEMBER IS ROTARY FOUNDATION

 

Meeting November 14th

 

President John welcomed members, partners Jacquie Pittaway and Dellys Rodgers and a large group of guests:

Colin and Gail McCulloch’s grandsons Lachlan and Matthew Walker, Colleen and Alister Pugsley, Anne Wilson, Ross Cusack, Linda Jackson, Wendy Waller, George and Judy Carter and Clare de Marigny.

 

John announced that Applecross RC are looking for helpers to work 2 hour shifts at the Jacaranda Festival to be held on November 26th.  If you can help please contact John.

 

John was very excited to announce that we will be inducting 5 new members at our Christmas Dinner meeting on December 12th.

We need mentors for each new member.

Carole has a checklist to help mentors have the right conversations to assist and guide new members

 

Colin announced that he had given out the Sausage Sizzle roster for November 20 and had a sheet to circulate for more volunteers for December 11.

He said that we would be running a Cake Stall in conjunction with the Sausage Sizzle and Gail would be managing it.  Full details are printed below

Colin also spoke about Project Robin Hood being conducted by the City of Melville that is offering a total of $100,000 in grants to community groups for any project that is legal, safe and improves our community.  The grants range from $1,000 to $20,000 and are selected by community voting via email.

Colin indicated that he had come up with an idea but wanted all Club members to look around their community and see what projects they could dream up that would make it a better community.

Richard Offen, Anne Wilson and Mal Bennett

 

 

   

Our guest Speaker Richard Offen is the Executive Director of Heritage Perth. 

He is a very knowledgeable and interesting speaker.

 

Tonight, he told us that the series Heroes, Villains and Vagabonds came about when he was working with Russell Wolfe from the ABC.  They decided to present the stories as a series of interviews. 

Sadly, Russell left the ABC to support his wife in a new job in Minneapolis. 

This resulted in the information on people who made Perth what it is today into a series of talks.

The first person he spoke about was Eliza (Elizabeth) Shaw

She and her husband William Shaw arrived in Fremantle on February 14th 1830 with six children and a further three were born in Western Australia. 

They took up land in Upper Swan on a property they named Belvoir.

The family worked hard to make a success of their property, suffering hardship and tragedy along the way.

Eliza was widowed but with the help of her children continued to work the property for many years until she was forced to sell.

 

Thomas George Anstruther Molloy initially came to the Swan River colony to look after convicts.

He moved on to own a number of bakeries, become Commercial Manager of the West Australian, he became an MLA and a Councilor and bought up a lot of land. 

He built the Theatre Royal and His Majesty’s Theatre at a cost of 42 000 pounds.

He also bought the Perth Gas Company, Electricity Company and the Tram Company so the people of Perth could enjoy the profits.

Claude Albo de Bernales (1876-1963), was a mining promoter and investor.

He migrated to the Western Australian goldfields in 1897, arriving in Coolgardie with £5, borrowed £50, moved to Kalgoorlie and sold machinery.

His appearance was a major asset.  He was handsome, and always expensively dressed.  Even on the dusty goldfields, cycling from mine to mine, he always carried a clean collar and shirt and changed before calling on the managers.

He acquired properties in Melbourne and Perth and launched his flamboyant mock-Tudor shopping arcade, London Court, which is still a feature of Perth.

He owned the Cottesloe Civic Centre which he made into the show piece it is today

De Bernales was a legend, larger than life: by personal magnetism and financial acumen he won concessions and became wealthy.  His ability to attract new capital and his self-confidence transformed the Western Australian mining industry in the 1930s.

In the late 1930s, Mr de Bernales began to face financial difficulty – the liquidation of a major mine, suspended trading, and then liquidation of a number of his companies, and investigations into tax discrepancies all contributed to his downfall.

He ended up moving back to England, living in Sussex, virtually as a recluse with very ill health.

 

Richard’s enthusiasm and knowledge made him a great guest speaker.

 

 

Winners

The door prize was won by guest Judy Carter and Martin won the raffle.

 

Fines

Patricia conducted a lively fines session.

 

Best Wishes

Anne Lewkowski is recovering from major back surgery and has been moved to St Anne’s.  We wish her a speedy recovery.

 

Theatre Night “One Man, Two Guvnors”

Gillian reported that we still have 9 tickets available for the play.  Please make a special effort to invite some friends.  This will be a fabulous night and we need to sell these last few tickets to maximise our fund-raising.

 

Thank you

Thank you, Ian, and Colin, for the delicious Chocolate Brownie and Fruit Loaf we enjoyed with tea and coffee.

CAKE STALL for SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2016

 

Gail will manage the cake stall and would appreciate a bit of company / help.

We plan to start selling at 9.00am until sold out.

 

CAKES

Everyone is asked to provide cakes for the cake stall. 

Ian said Our Lady of Fatima School made $800 from their cake stall so it is certain that we will sell as many cakes as we can make.

Bunnings’ requirements are that the cakes must not have cream or require refrigeration. 

They should be clearly labelled with a list of all ingredients and covered / wrapped to avoid possible contamination.

Text Box: E.g.

Rounded Rectangle: BANANA LOAF
Bananas, eggs, buttermilk,
butter, sugar, flour, vanilla
 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

Big Bakers

If anyone makes a large quantity of cakes, biscuits or slices to sell and would like to be reimbursed for the cost of ingredients just give Colin or Gail the details and we will reimburse you from the takings.

Delivery:

Cakes can be dropped off at Bunnings from 8.00am to 11.00 and we plan to sell from 9.00 until sold out.  If it’s easier to drop your cakes at Colin & Gail’s house at 64 Stock Road on Saturday, we will leave an esky near the front door in case we are not home.

Promoting Rotary

We will have the cake stall set up in the foyer at Bunnings so it will be highly visible and ideal to promote our Club.

Happy, hard-working students from the School of St Yared

 

 

Supporting the

School of St Yared

The School of St Yared is currently teaching about 220 students.  We are aiming to help raise US $205,000 to relocate the school to new premises so catering for double the number of students and saving almost US $120,00 each year on rent.  This is a great opportunity to help an existing school with a fine record.

 

Ethiopia – interesting facts

Our major international project this year is assisting the School of St Yared in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Ethiopia is made up of a number of ethnic groups or tribes. 

The main being: Oromo 34%, Amhara 27%, Somali 6%, Tigraway 6%, Sidama 4%, Gurage 2.5%, Wolayta 2.3%
