The growth of population in the South West is resulting in a number of new social clubs being formed through Rotary Clubs.

There are many in Australia and New Zealand including the IYFR Western Australia Fleet, based on the Swan River formed nearly 40 years ago.
IYFR fellowship includes local, interstate and international events and visits.

Rotary Club of Cambridge

DG Geoff Simpson and Manny Petrelis
The Rotary Club of Cambridge was visited by District Governor, Geoff Simpson,
Assistant Governor John Lindsay and their wives on Monday the 10th August.
The highlight of the evening was undoubtedly the presentation of a Paul Harris Fellow recognition pin (sapphire) to Manny Petrelis.
Manny joined Rotary in 1971 and has been an energetic and enthusiastic member ever since. He was President in 1986/87, and has served on the Board of the Club on numerous occasions. Manny has always participated in Club activities, especially those relating to fundraising,
and his extensive network of friends and business associates has been a boon to the Club's efforts to obtain sponsorship, prizes etc.
There are a number of outstanding contributions that Manny has made to the Club.
For 27 years he has organised an annual doorknock for the Salvation Army Red Shield appeal. This endeavour has raised more than $70,000
and earned the deep gratitude of the Salvos and the countless people they help each year.
Manny is also responsible for the original idea and organisation of our annual Charity Golf Day which has successfully run for 13 years.
He was also pivotal in forging the close relationship we now enjoy with the Clontarf Academy.
Manny has made a significant and sustained contribution over the years,
for which members of the former Floreat Club
and latterly the Cambridge Club are most appreciative.
Here's wishing Manny many more happy years of activity with The Rotary Club of Cambridge, and sincere thanks go to him for all his great efforts over a long period of time.
thanks to Malcolm Kates
