ROTARY SPECIAL MONTHS:    SEPTEMBER IS NEW GENERATIONS

 

 

Monday, September 12th

 

President John welcomed our guest speaker Helena Johnstone and Vic Lewkowski.

He had a number of items to bring to members' attention.

·     He had been in touch with Bruce Robinson who was very grateful for the phone calls

and positive thoughts from members, however he is not keen to have visitors at the moment. 

We all wish Bruce the very best and look forward to enjoying his kind, caring and thoughtful company in the near future.

·     Everyone is invited to a BYO Cluster Sundowner on

Saturday September 17th from 3.00pm to 5.00pm at Piney Lakes.  Applecross, Booragoon and Canning Bridge Clubs will be attending.

For directions please consult adjoining map.

·     Members voted to cancel our Monday 31st October so that we could attend and

support Applecross RC at the welcome dinner for the Rotary Vocational Training Team from Sri Lanka.  see details below.

 

·     John invited everyone to read the information about next year's Conference in the hope that many will choose to attend.

It will be held in Fremantle and is being hosted by Fremantle Rotary

 

·     John then shared an updated version of the presentation video for St Yared that was

very interesting and informative.

 

Martin announced that Betty was hoping to be discharged from hospital this evening.

We all wish her a speedy  and pain free recovery.

 

Guest Speaker

 

Helena Johnstone

from the Stroke Foundation

 

Rod gave a delightful introduction to our guest speaker Helena Johnstone.

He later recounted the story of how he had suffered a stroke and thankfully survived the ordeal.

Helena explained that strokes are one of the biggest killers and a leading cause of disability.

She said that many strokes are preventable.

90% can be prevented by changing your lifestyle.

 

To reduce your risk you need to:-

 

·         Know your blood pressure

·         Reduce blood cholesterol

·         Control diabetes

·         Control irregular heartbeat

 

·         Reduce stress

·         Drop the salt

·         Healthy eating

·         Get active

·         Limit alcohol

·         Quit smoking

     

 

 

Helena also promoted F.A.S.T.

 

FACE:

Has their mouth drooped?

ARMS:

Can they lift both ARMS?

SPEECH:

Is their SPEECH slurred?

TIME:

TIME is critical.

 

If you see any of these signs :- 

Call 000 NOW!

 

Helena is not medically trained but has helped many people transition from hospital to home after a stroke.  Everyone enjoyed her friendly and relaxed manner and found her talk very interesting and informative.

 

Visiting Rotary Clubs

Mal asked members to select Rotary Clubs they would be happy to visit to present the fund raising plan for the School of St Yared.

 

Can you help

Kerry is seeking help to enable four girls aged approximately 18 years from his university students in the Philippines to come to Australia to study for three or four years.

It will cost about $27 000 to attend university and they need somewhere to live.

If you can help in any way please contact Kerry.

 

 

Love in a Shoebox

Jim still needs to collect some boxes.

If you have any please call Jim to make arrangements to have them collected.

 

Melbourne Cup Sweep

Don't forget to select your sweep numbers from Greg.

 

Invitation to All

Ian asked all members to attend and to invite partners and friends to the meeting on October 24th.  The guest speaker Gareth Parker will be talking on the American Elections.  This should be a very interesting, informative and topical talk.

 

 

Rotary Charity House

The Charity House committee have a number of requests for help. 

They need Plasterers, Painters, Gyprockers and Tilers. 

If you can help with any of these please contact Jim Calcei.

Duty Roster

The new duty roster from now until December is published below.

 

Save the Date

Gillian is organising a fund raiser night at the Melville Theatre Company on Wednesday November 23rd to see the play "One Man Two Guvnors".

Please invite family and friends to join us for a fun night out.

DISTRICT 9465 CONFERENCE 2017

 

 

DISTRICT CONFERENCE UPDATE AUGUST 2016 - We Are Open for Business!!

District Governor Linda and Greg are returning to Linda’s childhood holidays by inviting you to join them in Fremantle on 31st March to 2nd April 2017 for the Annual District Conference.

 

Hosted by the Rotary Club of Fremantle with assistance from surrounding clubs we are planning an interesting and thought provoking weekend with the theme Nurturing Humanity. Covering areas from Nurturing at Home, Nurturing Abroad, Nurturing the Mind, the Spirit and the Planet we hope to interest, fascinate and provoke you into more Rotary Action to Serve Humanity.

The venue will be the Fremantle Sailing Club in Marine Terrace Fremantle with its beautifully enlarged conference facilities. Situated on the Indian Ocean waterfront and five minutes away from the Fremantle CBD it has ample free parking, is adjacent to excellent bike paths and is also served by the free CAT bus.

 

A port city, Fremantle is known for its maritime history, Victorian architecture and remnants from Australia's days as a British penal colony. With numerous opportunities for dining, entertainment and enjoying the ocean environment Fremantle offers the chance for a mini break holiday.

 

All Club Presidents are invited to appoint a GO TO CONFERENCE Chairperson to promote this important District event and ensure registrations are made early. Please advise the Conference Coordinator the name of this person:   conference@rotary9465.org.au

 

Pick Up your Buckets and Spades and join us at 6.00 pm for the Friday evening opening Sundowner for a light supper (including fish and chips) and refreshments.

 

The Governor's Gala Dinner Saturday

 

Enjoy a night of Fun, Food and Fellowship in the “Wardroom” with magnificent sunset views over harbour and ocean. Commencing with a pre-dinner drink, the theme is a “Purple” splash – No Prizes for guessing

Linda’s favourite colour – and it’s only incidentally Dockers.

 

No formal partners programme will be arranged this year. There is so much to see and do in Fremantle we do not wish to restrict your choices!! Brochures and special opportunities will be arranged and available from the registration desk.

 

So Tell Us About it – Rotary Soapbox will be part of the programme this year and we invite Clubs with interesting, new, or outlandish projects and programmes to Tell Us About It for 5 mins during the conference. Please contact the Conference Coordinator for details:  conference@rotary9465.org.au

Rotary Club of Applecross

Rotary Vocational Training Team – Sri Lanka

Welcome Dinner

The Rotary Club of Applecross will host the Welcome Dinner for the Rotary Vocational Training Team from Sri Lanka on Wednesday, 2 November 2016.  The dinner will be held at Tompkins on Swan in Alfred Cove, enabling host families, Rotarians and partners to meet and greet the team. 

During the program the team will make a presentation on their personal stories and what they hope to achieve during their stay in Perth.

Four clinical scientist Team Members (average age 29) and a Team Leader will come to Perth from  1 – 21 November, for a special training course at PathWest in Nedlands and to visit hospital laboratories at Bunbury and Busselton.

The Team will be hosted by Rotarian families from six Rotary Clubs during their stay.  Hosts will take them to training, Rotary meetings, special events and to see some of the great features of Western Australia.

Team Members were selected from 23 participants who attended a training workshop in May 2016, held as part of a Global Grant Project, ‘Pathology Equipment & Training’, held at the University of Peradeniya in Sri Lanka.  The  USD207,640  Global Grant was awarded to the Rotary Club of Applecross and the Rotary  Club of Colombo South in February 2016, to provide equipment for rapid testing of infectious diseases, installed at hospitals in Jaffna and Nuwara Eliya.  The project is now practically complete.

Invitations will go out to all Rotary Clubs to enable Rotarians and Partners, especially newer members, to attend the Welcome Dinner to see one of the great programs of the Rotary Foundation in action.

Wed 2 November.  Tompkins on Swan.   7.00 pm start.  $25.00 pp + cash bar.
