 Rotary International World President  Ron and Jetta Burton in Busselton














Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation

Jeff Raikes, CEO of the BIll & Melinda Gates Foundation
 announces a new fundraising agreement between 
Rotary International and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
An announcement at the Rotary International Convention in Lisbon, Portugal, 
set the stage for a bold new chapter in the partnership
 between Rotary and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation 
in the campaign for polio eradication.  
“Going forward, the Gates Foundation will match two-to-one, 
up to US$35 million per year, every dollar Rotary commits
 to reduce the funding shortfall for polio eradication through 2018,” said Jeff Raikes, the foundation’s chief executive officer,
 in a prerecorded video address shown during the convention’s 
plenary session on 25 June. 
“If fully realized, the value of this new partnership with Rotary
 is more than $500 million.
 In this way, your contributions to polio will work twice as hard.”  
The joint effort, called End Polio Now – Make History Today,
 comes during a critical phase for the Global Polio Eradication Initiative .
The estimated cost of the initiative’s 
Funding commitments , announced at the Global Vaccine Summit in April,
 total $4 billion.
 Unless the $1.5 billion funding gap is met, 
immunization levels in polio-affected countries will decrease
. And if polio is allowed to rebound, within a decade,
 more than 200,000 children worldwide could be paralyzed every year.

Rotary Club of Kenwick
Climb for a Smile October 2013
I am trying to trace the Rotarian who attended one of our Climb For A Smiles
 and was armed with a large Video camera and obviously took  footage of the day.
We are now organising  Climb for a Smile 2013 and our  web site can now  take video footage
 so we are keen to locate him and his footage, but no one knows who he was. 
I would appreciate it if you would circulate this request 


This year Climb for a Smile will be climbing for Cord Blood Polio....Eradication and Interplast
but a clubs  can also climb for there own cause,
atever that maybe

President Kenwick Rotary

 The Typewriter






A magician accidentally turned his wife
 into a couch and his two kids into armchairs.
 He started to panic and thought to himself, 
"What the heck have I done?"
 He began to ponder,
 "How am I going to bring back my beloved family?"
 So, he thought for a while and decided a good idea
 was to take them to a hospital and see if the surgeon 
could operate and bring them back. 
He loads them into his van and off he rushes
 to the local hospital.
 He walked up and down the hospital
 and after some serious surgery, he asks the doctor,
 "Doc, how are they doing?" 
The doctor replies, 
"Comfortable, sir!





An Englishman, a Frenchman, a Spaniard and a German 
are walking down the street together. 
A juggler is performing on the street but there are so many people
 that the four men can’t see the juggler.
 So the juggler goes on top of a platform and asks:
“Can you see me now?”
The four men answer:
 “Yes.” “Oui.” “Si.” “Ja.”
