December is Family Month

December is Family Month.
To many Rotarians, the family of Rotary means spouses,
brothers, sisters, parents, and children.
Their work for Rotary is very much appreciated.
However, to me, as long as we do not have a Rotary family membership,
relatives are not the family of Rotary –
the family of Rotary consists of all Rotary International districts
, clubs, Rotarians, programs, and The Rotary Foundation.
The Rotary Foundation is a huge part of the family of Rotary.
All of the money raised, whether through Rotary International
or The Rotary Foundation, is channelled through The Rotary Foundation.
There are large sums of money coming every year to the Annual Programs Fund,
the Permanent Fund, the Rotary Peace Centers Major Gifts Initiative
and, right now, Rotary’s USD200 Million Challenge.
Even though the money-raising efforts for these four funds are separate,
they are all linked together.
Annual giving is the core of our business.
The Permanent Fund was geared toward those Rotarians
who can afford to give large sums and as a support to the Annual Programs Fund.
The Rotary Peace Centers Major Gifts Initiative was also launched
to approach those Rotarians who can afford to give more than average.
Thus it is apparent how these three fundraising events depend on one another.
In addition we have Rotary’s USD200 Million Challenge,
which affects the annual giving, thus also the two other fundraising programs.
It is important that when we give money, we must donate to all of the above initiatives.
By remembering this, we can continue
Building Communities — Bridging Continents
through Service Above Self.

On the 2nd December 2010 the Rotary Club of Crawley
celebrated the induction of its 100th member with a (slightly larger than)
normal club meeting with a few twists along the way.
Rotary International President
Ray Klinginsmith was present,
undertaking a make up meeting together with Club Patron
and Vice Chancellor of The University of Western Australia, Professor Alan Robson.
The Club actually inducted nine new members on the day
bringing it's membership total on the day to 105.

Australia Tanzania Young Ambassadors (ATYA) is a
not for profit school based initiative established in
In June 2009, ATYA entered into a joint programme
with the Rotary Club of Melville for the provision of
three water wells for schools in Tanzania that were
without water.
Jointly, the Rotary Club of Melville and ATYA applied
for and were granted project status by Rotary
Australia World Community Service (.“RAWCS.”).
Quotes for the drilling of water wells were obtained
from Aqua Well Drilling Co Limited (.“Aqua.”) to drill
water wells at Miburani Secondary School, Mtambani
Primary School and Ugombolwa Secondary School.
Individual Contracts were then entered into with Aqua
for the drilling and completion of the three water wells
for those schools on a “turnkey.” basis.
In accordance with the terms of the drilling contracts,
site surveys were undertaken to ascertain the likelihood
of water being found at the locations selected.
The surveys were completed satisfactorily and indicated
that the probability of finding water was high.
Drilling of the water wells was undertaken by Aqua in
accordance with the contracts, and all works were
completed to a high standard and within the terms of
the contracts.
The water from each of the wells was tested by the
Tanzanian Ministry of Water and Irrigation, and all were
found to be suitable for use.
Milburani Secondary School
The project has benefited 1200 students and the surrounding households.
Mtambani Primary School
This project has benefited 2165 students and the surrounding households.
Ugomblwa Secondary School
This project has benefited 736 students and the surrounding households
Ongoing power and maintenance costs for these projects are met by selling water to householders.
The projects were initiated by the Australia-Tanzania
Society supported by The Rotary Club of Melville
and the Rotary Club of Bahari Dar es Salaam

Rotary Club of Southern Districts


This week the Southern Districts Rotary Club did something different
– they attended a Buddhist temple service
and were invited to join the local community in an evening meal
PP Ray organised the visit and in the proceeding weeks
informed the club of some of the Buddhist’s customs and practices
– explaining that Buddhism was not a religion but a way of life
The 4 way test fits nicely into the Buddhist creed
Forty members, and partners, attended the evening and meal,
and in keeping with Buddhist custom -
removed there shoes prior to entering the Temple.

to donate money to enable disadvantaged people
to attend a session of the Magic Show.
World class performers typically run 3 shows on one day.
Up to 16,000 people have attended to see acts which include
an Illusionist, Ventriloquists, circus acts and more.
Moneys raised from this show allows our club to donate to worthy causes such as Neuromuscular Research Institute ,
and other smaller worthy causes.


Rotary Charity Golf Day
Rotary WA is finalising an amazing project which assists in medical treatment
and stem cell research.
The wonderful aspect of this is that it collects blood from umbilical cords
after the birth of a child which is then stored in a bank
for the future and utilised in treatment of many medical conditions.
Cutting edge medical research is continually finding new ways
to harness the lifesaving qualities of the blood cells.
Rotary WA has raised $6 million over the last couple of years
to build a Cordblood Bank in Perth.
It is almost finished.
You can help Rotary complete the project by supporting a charity golf day
being run by the Rotary Clubs of Attadale and Fremantle
at Royal Fremantle Golf Club
on Friday 4th March 2011.
How can you help?
- Nominate a team of four to compete on the day.
The cost is $400 per team.
- Become a Gold, Silver or Bronze sponsor
By assisting with this charity golf day you will be helping to provide
a facility which will directly benefit your children and their families.

Matt went into Doc Steven's office for his annual checkup,
and the Doc asked if there was anything unusual he should know about.
That left it pretty wide open,
so he told the Doc that he found it real strange
how his suit must have shrunk just sitting in his closet
because it didn't fit when he went to get ready for a wedding recently.
The Doc said, "Suits don't shrink just sittin' there.
You probably just put on a few pounds, Matt."
"That's just it, Doc, I know I haven't gained a single pound since the last time I wore it."
"Well, then," said Doc, "You must have a case of Furniture Disease."
"What in the world is Furniture Disease?"
"Furniture Disease is when you reach that stage in life
when your chest starts sliding down into your drawers."

My wife came home yesterday and said
, “Honey, the car won’t start,
but I know what the problem is.”
I asked her what it was,
and she told me there was water in the carburetor.
I thought for a moment, then said,
“You know, I don’t mean this offensively,
but you don’t know the carburetor from the accelerator.”
“No, there’s definitely water in the carburetor,” she insisted.
“OK Honey, that’s fine,
I’ll just go take a look. Where is it?”
“In the lake.”
