Monday, August 24th, 2015

 

President Elect John welcomed everyone and our guest speaker Rebecca Clarkson.

John had a message from Carole saying that David was now home from hospital but still very unwell so would John please take over as President.

 

It's that time of year again.

Jim distributed "Love in a Shoe Box" boxes on behalf of Nancy Bray

Please help bring some love and joy to children who have very little to call their own.

The final collection date for these is 14th September 2015.

 

Movie and Musical

Gillian is looking at two fundraising functions for members to invite family and friends to attend.

·                     A movie "The Intern" on Sunday, 11th October in the afternoon at the Cygnet Theatre.

·                     The dress rehearsal of the musical "Pirates of Penzance" probably on Wednesday,       11th November at the Melville Theatre in Stock Road.

 

They are the perfect pest control.

Ian encouraged members to invite family and friends to hear next week's guest speaker,

Mike Nichol, talk about 'Attadale Foreshore Bat Boxes.

They feast on the pests that make summer a nightmare for residents.

 

 

Successful Sausage Sizzle Sells Out

 

Colin. Martin and Gail braved the wind, rain and hail to run a sausage sizzle at Bicton PS.

We catered for the suggested 150 and worked at the fastest pace ever selling out of everything including the display drinks!!!

After covering costs which included buying a new, small barbecue we were delighted to make a profit of $200.85.

 

 

Helping a Family in Need

Mick shared details of a widow and her children who are living in a damp, unfinished house.

He has approached a number of Rotary Clubs to help complete the house and make it into a comfortable home.

 

Promoting Attadale Rotary Club

Mick showed off the banner and metal sign that will be used to advertise our club and hopefully encourage new members.

 

Anyone for Shiraz?

George told the meeting about a fundraising project selling Shiraz. 

To make this a success members are encouraged to collect orders from family and friends.

 

 

Exchange student Mariann

Bruce told us that Mariann has

·    spent three weeks working with an MP in Joondalup

·     one day a week working with him

·    spent a day at the Innovation Conference for the Ag. Institute

·    attended a ram sale and checked out sheep handling equipment!!!!

·    walked up Bluff Knoll with Bruce

·    will work four days a week with Peter Abetz for the next four weeks

 

Youth Mental Health

John and Bruce will meet with the Fremantle Street Doctor to see how Attadale RC can help them.

 

Fines and Wine

After Jim's fine session he ran Heads and Tails won by Tom.

Betty won the door prize and Martin was unlucky in trying to find the joker.

All were pleased to take home a bottle of wine.

 

Coffee and Cake

Colin usually makes cake or biscuits to have with coffee. 

As he was away helping a friend bring his boat from Exmouth to Fremantle, Gail had to uphold the family tradition so cooked Albran Loaf for members to enjoy.

 

Guest Speaker from FORM

 

Ian introduced Rebecca Clarkson who Manages the Community Development Program at FORM.

They are responsible for a lot of the community street art including the Octopus on the building near the Fremantle Traffic Bridge.

FORM is there to challenge and create dialogue about what sort of city we want.

 

Rebecca is also responsible for the project designed by FORM at 100 Hampton Road which was the former nurses quarters. 

It is a 190-bed lodging house for some of the most vulnerable people in Western Australia:  The lodging house offers entry-level accommodation and a safe space for people to get their lives back on track and start building a brighter future.

Through the support of Principal Partner BHP Billiton, other organisations and individuals,  FORM has created a rich project of artist residencies, renovations, and social programming bringing residents together in a positive, creative, and convivial environment, and enhancing their involvement within the local community.  Click here for more information.

 and to Betty on the arrival of her great niece, Taylor Anne.

Best wishes to Don Rodger

 

On behalf of the members of Attadale RC Colin and I would like to say thank you to Don Rodger for his valued contribution to the Club over many years. 

We will miss your company and hope you and Rosemary will keep in touch and attend some meetings and functions in the future.

 

 

 

 

Monday, August 31st, 2015

 

 

 

President Carole welcomed all members, guest speakers Mike Nichol and Joe Tonga, and Rod

as acting Sergeant

 

Succession Planning

John ran through some points from the succession planning meeting.

He thanked Bruce for his contribution saying they started with bare basics but now had a

structure to work through.  There is a timetable for future meetings.

 

It's Time to Pay

Betty asked that members please pay their subscriptions as soon as possible as she has to

pay Rotary District.

 

Love

Rod offered the three remaining "Love in a Shoe Box" boxes for members to fill.

 

Paraprosdokians???

Patricia shared some with us. 

·    " Where there's a will, I want to be in it."

·    "Change is inevitable, apart from a vending machine."

 

Money for Wine

Rod ran a fines session followed by a game of Heads and Tails which was won by George.

The door prize was won by Mick and the Joker eluded Robin.

All three winners were happy with their prize of a bottle of wine.

 

Friends of Attadale Foreshore

Mike Nichol spoke about the work he does with "Friends of Attadale Foreshore"

This is a group of volunteers working to restore the beautiful shoreline of the Swan River in

Attadale.

The Alfred Cove Marine Park in the Swan Estuary is internationally significant for its migratory

birds.

The group works to rehabilitate the foreshore well as providing a safe haven for birdlife.

They have erected two towers for Ospreys to make nests on.

 

Bat Boxes

Joe Tonga told us that Micro Bat adults eat 1000 insects a night and live up to 20 years.

They eat many pest insects including lawn grub moths, weevils, beetles, midges, flying

termites, disease carrying mosquitoes and many more.

He has developed a bat box that will house about forty bats.  These have been placed in

clusters in a number of areas.

To involve communities in this project he has worked with a number of schools.  The children

help assemble the boxes and they see where they are placed.

$3300 is needed for each project which has eight boxes.

Further information is available at Mr Tonga’s bat site at http://www.gobatty.com.au.

Carole thanked our guest speakers for a very interesting and enlightening talk on our local

environment.

She also thanked everyone on behalf of David and herself for all our good wishes.

 

 

In recent times some members have become quite relaxed about undertaking their rostered meeting duties.  Please ensure that you read the roster and arrange a swap if you are unable to do your duty.

 

We have two major fund-raising sausage sizzles at Bunnings on November 22 and December 12.  With declining numbers we will need all members to assist on at least one of these dates.  Please plan ahead and arrange your activities so that you can help. 

We will ask for your day and time preferences closer to the dates. 

 

 

 

 

APOLOGIES:   

If you will not be attending the meeting please email the acting Attendance Officer, Gillian Baker, before midnight on Sunday or if you need to apologise on the Monday please phone before 10.00am on Mob 0435 305 199 (Emails may not get read on Monday and cannot therefore guarantee that your apology is received).

Unless Gillian receives an apology by 10.00am on the day of the meeting the meal will need to be charged to you, and the procedure to recover costs for non apology will be:
