Tanaka elected RI president for 2012-13
Rotary International News -- 25 May 2011

Sakuji Tanaka, a member of the Rotary Club of Yashio, Saitama, Japan,
 was elected president of Rotary International for 2012-13
 by delegates during the fourth plenary session at the 2011
 RI Convention in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA.
 "It is my honor to accept the nomination to serve as president of Rotary International," said Tanaka.
 "Since I joined Rotary, I have embraced every new challenge of Rotary service.
 To me, challenge is a very important word. It inspires us.
 It also helps us to be and to do our best. It allows us to bring out our fullest potential."
Tanaka encouraged Rotarians to help Rotary reach its potential
 by finishing the job of polio eradication and using the organization's strengths
 to enhance its ability to "do good in the world."
He said Rotarians share a responsibility to make Rotary clubs stronger
by attracting quality members and ensuring that every club meeting is productive and meaningful.
 He also called upon clubs to make an action plan to bring in younger members.
"We need to stop talking about this. Instead, why don't we just do it!" he said.
Tanaka also took a moment to thank Rotarians for the outpouring of assistance
after the earthquake and tsunami that struck his country in March.
 "People around the world, particularly Rotarians,
 offered help to rebuild the communities that were lost.
 Only with the knowledge that we are not alone,
 can we work together for the long healing process after such tragedy."
For 32 years, Tanaka was president of Tanaka Company Ltd.,
a wholesale firm that went public in 1995
and later merged with other leading wholesalers in Japan.
 Currently, he serves as vice president of the Yashio City Chamber of Commerce
 and adviser to Arata Co. Ltd.,
an animal feed and pet food wholesaler.
He also chaired the National Household Papers Distribution Association of Japan for eight years.
Tanaka studied business at Nihon Management Daigakuin and Tokyo Management Daigakuin.
A past trustee of The Rotary Foundation, Tanaka chaired
 the 2009 Birmingham Convention Committee.
His other service to Rotary includes RI director, regional Rotary Foundation coordinator,
district governor, and member of the Polio Eradication Advocacy Task Force,
 the Permanent Fund Committee for Japan, and the Future Vision Committee.
Tanaka established an endowed Rotary Peace Fellowship,
 and he and his wife, Kyoko, are Paul Harris Fellows,
Benefactors of the Permanent Fund, and Major Donors.
He is a recipient of RI’s Service Above Self Award
and The Rotary Foundation’s Distinguished Service Award.

The Rotarians who will serve as RI directors in 2012-14 were also elected:
 Ann-Britt Åsebol, of the Rotary Club of Falun-Kopparvågen, Sweden;
John B. Boag, of the Rotary Club of Tamworth North, New South Wales, Australia;
Jean-Marc Chateigner, of the Rotary Club of Cholet, Maine-et-Loire, France;
Takeshi Matsumiya, of the Rotary Club of Chigasaki-Shonan, Kanagawa, Japan;
Anne L. Matthews, of the Rotary Club of Columbia East, South Carolina, USA;
 Gideon Peiper, of the Rotary Club of Ramat Hasharon, Israel;
 Andy Smallwood, of the Rotary Club of Gulfway-Hobby Airport (Houston), Texas, USA;
 and Bryn Styles, of the Rotary Club of Barrie-Huronia, Ontario, Canada.

Exercise in peace at Kalgoorlie's new outdoor gym
By Emma Wynne
The Kalgoorlie Peace Park now has play equipment for grown-ups.
"There's playground equipment for the children
 and we thought we needed something for the adults," explained Esther Roadnight,
 president elect of Hannans Rotary club, which installed the equipment.
"I'd seen some fitness equipment in parks around Australia
 and I though why don't we do that here."
Rotary members have installed six free exercise machines, including a cross trainer,
rowing machine and shoulder press.
The Peace park was originally wasteland before it was redeveloped by Rotary in 1994.
"It was called Twin dams and it provided water for the trains," Ms Roadnight said.
The club added landscaping, barbecues and children's play equipment.
"We've built a rotunda on the island in the middle of the pond and a bridge across.
Next year we're having a tree planting on the island."
"I think with the trees and the fitness equipment, that will be it for the park, it's full."
The Peace park can accessed via Wortley Street.

The movie is a true story of a friendly red kelpie cross who hitched rides
with numerous people over thousandsof kilometres across WA.
The dog touched hearts, adopted new families
 and brought life and joy to the sometimes lonely, harsh Pilbara outback.
Red Dog, as he was affectionately known,
was born in 1971 in the Pilbara mining town of Paraburdoo.
The red kelpie was notorious for stopping cars by walking in front of them
 until the driver pulled up and he then proceeded to hop in.
He would be taken to whichever destination the driver was headed,
 sometimeshundreds of kilometres away,
before finding another car to take
him somewhere else.
Legend has it, Red Dog travelled as far south as Perth
 and back again, around Karratha, Roebourne, Port Hedland and Broome.

On a Lighter note

It seems this hungry shark visited a seaside restaurant.
Of course a seaside restaurant for a shark
 is for shore a different thing than it is for humans.
People go to the shore to eat seafood.
 Sharks go to the shore so they can see food they eat.
This particular beach was inhabited only by a herd of cows
 who came to graze on the nutritious seaweed growing in the shallows along the shoreline.
In this shallow water also lived many large shrimp.
The bloated carcass of the late Charlie the Tuna had also floated ashore
and was rocking back & forth on a sand & salad bar.
Well the shark took a good long look at this meager menu
and then called for the wader.
“Wader, are these the only three things you have to eat here today?”
“Yes, I’m afraid so, sir,”
The wader apologized,
 “In fact these are the only three items that are ever on our menu.
You sea, our motto here is
 ‘It’s always Starkist, beef or the prawn.
