Friends of Rotary
Friends of Rotary is a program that invites businesses

and individuals to team up with Rotary
for a year, two years or forever!

Becoming a Friend of Rotary allows those who share our ideals

and objectives to participate in our activities
without the responsibility of full membership
. As a matter of fact there are many people who would like to qualify
for' membership but simply do not have sufficient time
to join a Rotary Club.
Being a Friend of Rotary allows you to help in local fund raising

and community service events as well
as International projects.
Some club events are not specifically for fund raising but for socializing.
Rotarians call this Fellowship,
an opportunity to enjoy activities and each others company,
catch up with old friends
and make or develop new ones.

Role of Friends of a Rotary Club
§ Enjoy Fellowship and social occasions with like minded people.
§ Participate in and assist with any Rotary projects

or activities either by volunteering practical "in kind" or financial assistance,
particularly the major functions conducted by the club annually.
§ Protect the integrity of Rotary by advocating the importance

and advancing the ideals of Rotary.
§ Maintain contact with the club

and be informed of Rotary activities both locally and worldwide.
§ Contribute experience and wisdom when needed. "

Benefits to Friends of a Rotary Club
§ Opportunity to affiliate with community/business and professional groups.
§ Attend Rotary Club meetings and/or activities at own cost.
§ • Receive a monthly copy of the club Bulletin.
§ • Formal welcome and introduction to the Rotary club.
§ By supporting Rotary service projects

you are helping the local and international community.
§ Can be a stepping stone for you if you want to invest in the community

and also learn about Rotary.


What's new for clubs and districts
Rotary International News – 17 June 2010

Rotary International

A new Rotary year is set to begin,

and with it a number of changes to the way clubs
and districts do business.
The annual per capita dues that Rotary clubs pay to Rotary International

will increase to US$50 in 2010-11,
as established by the 2007 Council on Legislation.
The 2010 Council approved a $1 increase for the three subsequent years,
setting per capita dues at $51 for 2011-12,
$52 for 2012-13,
and $53 for 2013-14.

The 2010 Council, which met in April,
took several other actions that will go into effect 1 July:
E-clubs will become a permanent part of Rotary International

after years of participating in a pilot project.
Districts will be allowed up to two e-clubs,
which are defined as Rotary clubs that meet through electronic communications.
Some of the pilot e-clubs have been meeting solely through online forums,
while others have combined electronic with in-person meetings.
New Generations Service will join the other Avenues of Service

-- Club Service, Vocational Service, Community Service, and International Service.
Before starting a project, Rotarians are asked to think broadly
about how their club and its members can contribute within each avenue.
Rotarians in North America will have the choice of receiving

either an electronic or print version of The Rotarian magazine.
Rotarians living at the same address may qualify for a joint subscription.

Here are some changes that will primarily affect Rotary districts:
District assemblies must be held in

March, April, or May,
and presidents-elect training seminars in February or March.
The chair of the nominating committee for district governor

must notify the current governor of the committee’s candidate within 24 hours,
and the governor must inform clubs within 72 hours.
When a governor-elect position is vacant less than three months

before the International Assembly, the successor will automatically fill the vacancy,
if he or she is willing.
If two or more governor election complaints are filed in a district

in a five-year period and the Board believes that the RI Bylaws
or election complaint procedures have been violated,
it may disqualify the nominee, select a past governor to serve,
and remove any governor, governor-elect, or past governor
who is improperly influencing or interfering with the election process.
The Board may dissolve any district and reassign its clubs
to other districts if three or more election complaints
are filed in a five-year period.

Here are some changes that will primary affect Rotary clubs:
No club may limit membership based on sexual orientation.
Clubs must inform their district governor of a proposed change

to the club name or locality at least 10 days before voting on the proposal.
The immediate past club president will be considered a club officer

and a member of the board.
The RI Board may suspend or terminate the membership of any club

that retains any member who has misused funds from The Rotary Foundation
or who otherwise has breached the stewardship policies of the Foundation.
Clubs accepting a transferring or former Rotarian

must first secure a certificate from the former member’s club
confirming that person’s membership.
The former club is obligated to verify that the member does
not owe any debts to the club.
A prospective member cannot join a new club until all debts have been paid.

Attn: Police Officer of the Year Award
PO Box 6235
East Perth WA 6892

About the WA Police Officer of the Year Award
The WA Police Officer of the Year Award was launched in 1973

by the Rotary Club of East Perth.
It is proudly sponsored by the Burswood Entertainment Complex,
Police and Nurses Credit Society, 6PR and 96FM
. The award recognises the hard work all police officers
contribute to our society.
The officers nominated highlight that police work is both varied

and challenging and greatly affects people from all walks of life
. Policing is not only a job, it is a way of life.
Recognising a police officer with a nomination reinforces
that members of the police are not simply uniforms,
but also community members who share the same concerns as others.

Rotary Club of Boulder

Hello ladies and gentlemen, my name is Ryan Clarke
and I went to RYPEN with Cade, Monique and Rex.
We met the facilitators at the opening ceremony
and learned a lot about them.
Over the camp they knew a lot about us,
we learnt most of everyone's names and a bit about them.
By far it was the best food ever.
We had good breakfasts, lunches and teas.
The scenery of the mountain and the hillside roads were very good.
The Main theme of the camp was pirates and ninjas.
The facilitators were well prepared and came looking as a pirate.
We had a really good weekend with lots of fun, teamwork
, confidence boosting, life skills and many other attributes.
My favourite activity was blind walking;
we had to lead a partner through obstacles and up a hill.
My partner Steven was trusting except when I was blind folded
and nearly ran into a tree.
Before I nearly ran into another he said to me "watch out for that tree."
But then told me to stop and moved me out of the way.
Other activities like the consensus took so long..... up to 3 hours,
but we all came through with a
decision we all agreed on
. We used good decision making and judgment to make our minds up.
Other activities were based to get you working as a team
whether people had to be blind folded mute(can't talk)
or wasn't able to do anything,
by doing that we were able to work more as a team,
and more efficiently.
By the end of the camp we were working together smooth as a smooth rock,
quick as a ninja and as efficient as a hard working person.
We learnt so much from you sending us to the RYPEN march 2010
and wish we could go again.

Good evening Rotary members, parents, ladies and gentlemen.
My name is Monique Escudero
and I'm here tonight to tell you all about the amazing experience
I had while on RYPEN.
The aspect of RYPEN that I enjoyed the most was the chance to meet
and experience new people.
Many of the games involved getting to know your fellow RYPEN goers
and letting them get to know you.
We got involved ice breaker games and games that improve teamwork skills
and your confidence when meeting new people
. It was a really relaxed environment and by the end of the first day
everyone was pretty much at ease with each other.
Teamwork was greatly emphasized at RYPEN,
with almost every activity involving working co­operatively
and efficiently as a team.
This was a bit of a challenge at first but as everyone became more comfortable
it became easy and everyone enjoyed themselves.
We all had a good laugh and the more confident people encouraged
those who were more on the reserved side to
come out of their shell and get involved.
Encouragement was a big part of every activity
and it benefited everyone's confidence.
One thing that RYPEN really helped me combat
was managing all the things in my life effectively.
We learnt about the importance of having a healthy balance
between school, recreation, friends and most importantly family.
It was a really great help and an enjoyable activity.
RYPEN taught us all a very important lesson about empathy.
Everyone was asked to bring $10 for a mystery activity.
Once there we were informed that all our money would be combined
and given to a RYPEN goer that we all felt deserved it.
After a tense 3 hours of everyone adding what they would
accomplish with money and how it would help them.
After a long debate we decided who to give the money to
. It was a very humbling experience
and we all learnt the valuable lesson that sometimes the problem in your life
that you think is really bad is actually quite minor
compared to other's problems.
Thank you all for allowing me to experience RYPEN.
It was an amazing experience and it impacted
my life in a really positive way.
Thank you.

Quote of the Week


The humble little accountant had his suspicion.
One day he left the office early and,
sure enough,
at home he found a strange hat and umbrella in the hallway
and sitting in the living room in the arms of another man was his wife.
Wild for revenge,
the husband picked up the man’s umbrella
and snapped it in two across his knee
.“There!” he said.
“Now I hope it rains!”

  3. Well thats the very first time ive heared that there is a reset button on your cartridge, you can spare money by just utilizing this idea, does this mean i can easily
    replenish the cartridge myself and press the remainder button and my printer will
    certainly accept that the cartridge is full.

    Pls e-mail me the vedio for Laser Printer used

    My web-site - xerox phaser 8560 toner

  7. Really helpful details, I have actually constantly preferred laser
    printers due to the fact that they are less costly
    to use, when you make the preliminary investment.
    Toner cartrages are a lot more pricey yet outlive lots
    of many inkjet cartrages and are much less messy to make use of.

    You can set your laser printer to print in grayscale and utilize much less of the color toner, I just use color when publishing images.
