The Club plans to provide international assistance to the impoverished villagers
 of Eraulo in the Ermera District of Timor Leste by restoring their freshwater supply.
The Project
 - We plan to replace 1.5 km of corroded pipeline with irrigation poly pipe
 and replace the collapsed concrete storage facility with a corrugated iron tank.
We plan to raise the necessary funds,
 provide and co-ordinate the volunteer labour to assist the villagers
 to re-establish their essential water supply.
  100% of funds raised will be spent on the materials
 for the project with the club financing any shortfall.  
The club's volunteers will provide their own travel costs from Australia to Timor Leste. 
The villagers will assist with the project on a volunteer basis 
and will provide undercover camping accommodation.  
  The villagers will regain their fresh water supply essential
 for their good health and wellbeing. 
  The club's volunteers will gain firsthand experience working in a developing country.
To book for this event please pay on line via Try Booking 
 or further information please contact Ros King.



The Rotary Team Challenge offers you the opportunity
 to participate in an exciting team event that takes you
 through the picturesque West Australian countryside
 along a heritage trail that follows the path of the Eastern Railway
 that formerly linked Fremantle to York in the late 1880s. 
 The event will be run over one day,
 those choosing to walk can opt for a shorter course.
The main event involves a 75km run or bike ride 
for teams of 2 to 4 people over 18 years of age. 
The course will take the teams from Bernard Park in the centre of Northam
 along the edge of the Avon River until the footpath meets the Kep Track. 
 Teams will then follow the Kep Track through Clackline,
 Bakers Hill, Wundowie and Chidlow to Mt Helena
 before switching on to the Railway Heritage Trail 
through Parkerville and the John Forrest National Park
 to finish at the location of the old Swan View Railway Station.

Take a chance on me

Tom Hanks

     I took my nephew out for his first beer yesterday. 
Got him a Budweiser.....he didn't like it -- so I had it. 
     Then I got him a pint of draft, he didn't like that, either, so I had it. 
 Then I ordered him a Kokanee, and again he didn't like it so I drank it. 

     I ended up buying him a Blue, a Canadian, a Moosehead,

 a Pilsner, Molson Ice and a Coors, but he didn't like any of them 
and I had to drink them. 
 Well, by the time we got to the rum and the tequila, 
I could hardly push his stroller home!!!!
