By Arnold R. Grahl  

Rotary News -- 5 July 2013  

In yet another sign of Rotary’s growing diversity, 
 an organization formed in the 1910s,
 is poised to inaugurate its first woman president.
Nan McCreadie, a member since 1997 
of the Rotary Club of Feltham, Greater London, England,
 will be inaugurated on 6 July at an event in Twickenham Stoop Stadium.
 McCreadie has served as vice president of RIBI
, chair of its Constitution Committee, president’s representative,
 and district governor.
 She is a Bequest Society member.
“I am tremendously honored to be appointed RIBI’s first female president, 
which I firmly believe is a reflection of how Rotary is moving with the times,” she says.
 “We are currently undergoing a new stage in our development 
with more and more women and younger people wanting to join Rotary
 and help their local communities.
 So it is a really exciting time for me to be taking over 
and I am very much looking forward to my year in office.”

Anne Matthews begins term 
as first woman vice president
By Arnold R. Grahl  

Rotary News -- 2 July 2013  
  

As Rotary clubs continue to promote diversity in their membership,
 Rotary is marking a milestone.
 Anne L. Matthews, a Rotarian from South Carolina, USA,
 began her term on 1 July as the first female vice president of Rotary International.
“Women have contributed significantly to Rotary initiatives, 
and will continue to do so,” says Matthews, 
who is also the first woman to serve as both
 a Rotary Foundation trustee and an RI director.
 “No doubt, the unfortunate and sometimes misleading image of ‘an old boys’ club’
 will be buried for good.
“Whether the job is done by a male or female is immaterial,” she adds.
 “What is important is that the individual who serves is effective in that role.
 With that said, I am extremely proud to be the first woman vice president 
and am thankful for the California pioneers 
who pursued membership of women in Rotary.”
A member of the Rotary Club of Columbia East,
 Matthews has served Rotary in numerous capacities.
 In addition to her service as trustee and director, 
she has been a regional Rotary Foundation coordinator, 
RI president’s representative, lead seminar trainer for the International Assembly, 
Future Vision Committee member, RI training leader, 
and district governor.
She is a recipient of Rotary’s Service Above Self Award 
and The Rotary Foundation Citation for Meritorious Service
 and Distinguished Service Award.
 Matthews is a Rotary Foundation Benefactor, 
Bequest Society member, Major Donor, 
and Paul Harris Society member.

Gail Lazzaro, senior scientist with the Australian Red Cross Blood Service in Perth, 
was the guest speaker at the Inner Wheel District A40’s
 recent Lunch and Learn day.

Inner Wheel is an International Women’s service organization
 originally formed by the wives of Manchester Rotarians in 1924. 
The first Australian Inner Wheel Club was formed in 1931
 and the association quickly spread across the country.

Ms Lazzaro spoke of the use of Cord Blood
found in the umbilical cord and placenta after childbirth.
   Cord Blood contains stem cells, 
which can be used to treat hematopoietic and genetic disorders.           

For the last few years Inner Wheel Australia’s national project,
 has been to sponsor research into the use of this umbilical cord blood.
 This has been highly successful
 and to date we have provided the funds for 33 Research Grants.

Following a request in 1999 from Rotary WA
 for a worthwhile project to be their centennial gift to this State, 
Inner Wheel came up with a recommendation to create a Cord Blood Bank
 and this was subsequently chosen.
Ms Lazzaro said that this newly formed Cord Blood Bank programme 
will give healthy mothers giving birth to healthy babies
 the chance to donate cord blood.

“The Rotary WA Cord Blood Bank which we hope will open shortly, 
will be the fourth public cord blood facility in Australia,” she said.

“The WA programme will help fill the gaps in the national cord blood registry
 by focusing on the unique ethnic mixes in our community.

“Donations stored in the new cord blood bank
 will allow cord blood to be used for any matched patient.  
It will be a world class facility, 
capable of storing cord blood for decades.”

 Going the Extra Mile, written by Richard Keeler,
 is suitable for a wide readership, including school leavers
 embarking upon careers involving customer liaison.
 Every small and medium business owner should also read this book,
 and as an added bonus it is designed 
so that it would look great on a coffee table or reception area. 
This publication features the stories of three West Australian Companies
 on our Southern Coast (an Art Gallery, an Organic Food Grower, and a Winery)
 who have built up successful businesses on the concept 
 of making every engagement between their business
and their customer, a satisfying, loyalty-generating experience.

Our club can confidently recommend this book
 as we recently had the privilege of listening to Richard Keeler
 speak at one of our Rotary Meetings and several of our members
 have bought and read the book.

After Richard’s presentation, the Rotary Club of Victoria Park 
committed itself to help promote this book for Richard
 and to that end we have arranged a dinner function
 in conjunction with The Local Chambers
 and WA Business News to do that. 
Any Rotarian committed to running a successful business 
would benefit by attending this function!


Join us  on Wednesday Evening 24th July at the Old Cathay Restaurant , 

59 Albany Hwy (Monodelphous Building).

A distraught man went to a psychiatrist and exclaimed,
 “Doctor, I believe that I am possessed by an evil spirit.”
After talking to the patient at some length, the psychiatrist said, 
“You do appear to have a problem.
 I’d like to see you again next Wednesday.”
After a second session of psychotherapy, 
the psychiatrist pronounced his patient completely cured.
For the next nine months,
 the psychiatrist sent the man a monthly statement for his professional services,
 but the man wouldn’t pay 
and refused to acknowledge the debt.
Finally, the psychiatrist took the man to court
 and had him repossessed
