Multi-District Public Relations Seminar
Sunday 17 October 2010

Mt Lawley Senior High School in Woodsome Street, Mt Lawley.
Registration is at 8.30 am, with a 9.00 am start,
and the seminar ends at 1.00 pm to make it more accessible
for Rotarians from regional areas.
See you there !

Whenever we get a group of Rotarians talking about public relations,
someone will complain that one of the biggest problems
is the refusal of the media to report on Rotary’s good works.
Certainly that is how it seems from our side of the fence ..
it is often difficult to get our message across.
However, we may be able to do much better if we could
understand how the media operates.
That’s the underlying theme of a special multi-district seminar,
Promotion and Marketing of Rotary,
being held in Perth on Sunday, 17 October.
This seminar, coordinated by the District 9455 and 9465 public relations committees
will take a fresh look at how the media can be used to inform the public
– and prospective new members.
A keynote speaker and people who work in media will make presentations.
The central feature of the seminar will be an interactive workshop
moderated by professional journalists that will demonstrate
to Rotarians how and why the media makes its decisions
on what is and what is not news.
Understanding how the media operates is the key
to getting our news in print or on the air.
Rotary Down Under, our own magazine, will be there too
and there will be presentations on advertising, merchandise
and promotional aids as well as club public relations success stories.
Don’t be put off by the public relations tag –
it’s just what Rotary calls it.
This seminar is not just for PR officers,
but all Club officers and members who are keen to develop
and enhance the Promotion and Marketing of Rotary.
After all, every Rotarian is responsible for Rotary’s public relations.
Further details on directions, parking etc will be sent directly to all Clubs.
Please respond to:--
· your District PR Chair
9455 PDG Ian Murray
9465 PP John Feary
· or your Assistant Governor
Please let us know if you will be coming

Rotary Club of Freshwater Bay

The Hon Nick Hasluck
a recently retired Supreme CourtJudge,
offered his reflections on the
various jurisdictions of law.
It was extremely interesting to hear
how the judicial system worked and how one
is selected to be a Supreme Court Judge,
and many stayed on to ask
Nick more questions after the
meeting ended.

"quote of the week"


Down in Lafourche Parish, Louisiana,
Boudreaux gets a job with BP helping with the cleanup.
He reports for work and is told to speak to a supervisor about his assignment.
He finds the man and asks,
"What it is I supposed to do?"
The supervisor tells him to go to the animal shelter and clean the pelicans.
Two hours later, Boudreaux comes back to the supervisor and says,
"Okay.dey all cleaned.
You want me to cook some rice now?"


The history class was studying the Revolutionary battle of Saratoga
which was probably lost because General William Howe
chose to remain in Philadelphia.
The teacher then asked the class to explain this major British defeat.
"Lack of no Howe,"
answered a voice from the back of the classroom
.One early morning, a farmer was milking his cow.
The farmer was just starting to get a good rhythm going
when a bug flew into the barn and started circling his head.
Suddenly, the bug flew into the cow's ear.
The farmer didn't think much about it,
until the bug squirted out into his bucket.
It went in one ear and out the udder!
They hadn't seen their Uncle Max for over ten years
but every year his nieces sent him birthday greetings.
One year, they remembered how he had always
admired a set of military hairbrushes,
so they sent them to him as a gift.
A few weeks later they received a snapshot of their completely bald uncle
with a note that read:
"Thanks for the gift. I will never part with it."
