June is Rotary Fellowship Month

Rotary Fellowships are independent groups of Rotarians,
 their spouses, and Rotaractors who share a common passion. 
Being part of a fellowship is a fun way to make friends from around the world.
Fellowship activities vary widely.
 Members come together around hobbies or interests such as cricket or jazz,
or vocations such as writing or medicine.
Some groups are purely social while others 
use their fellowship for service projects.
You can also contact a fellowship directly by using
 the information listed in the Rotary Fellowships directory
Or search our discussion groups to find Rotary
 and Rotaract members with similar interests.
Chances are if you have a strong interest in something, 
there are others in the Rotary family who share it.
 Forming a fellowship starts with finding members for your group. 
Here’s how you can start:
·         Join a discussion group or start a new one.
It's a great way to share your interest with other members.
·         Use Rotary’s presence on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn
 to promote your idea.
·         Ask your district Rotary Fellowships chair for assistance.
 Reach out to district Rotary Fellowships chairs in
 other countries to build membership.
 Ask for contact information at
·         Be sure you meet the criteria for a fellowship
 and apply for official recognition.
 See the Rotary Fellowships Handbook for details.

Cord Blood saves lives

Across Australia, Inner Wheel Members are celebrating the success
 of their National cord blood research project, 
fundraising for which has now exceeded $2 million.
Blood from the umbilical cord was traditionally discarded after birth.
 It can now be used to save lives and is being successfully used
 to replace bone marrow transplants in the treatment of leukaemia.
Funds from the cord blood research project have enabled
nner Wheel Australia to award 35 research grants to scientists 
from Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and Brisbane. 
These grants have not only facilitated advancements
n the use of cord blood to treat leukaemia 
and many other blood diseases,
 but has allowed investigations to continue in the use of cord blood
 for the treatment of cystic fibrosis, cerebral palsy and heart disease.
Inner Wheel is grateful for the widespread community support
 that has been invaluable in exceeding the $2 million milestone
for this National project.

Rotary Club of Karrinyup

This week's Rotary Club of Karrinyup meeting 
was all about giving back to our community.

 With proceeds raised through the very popular Stirling Farmers Market,
 the club handed over cheques to three beneficiaries.

 The club is again delighted to support Marmion Primary School 
and their Jack the Wagtail initiative which sees students
 raise much valuable funds for Dr Fiona Wood and her Burns Research Teams.
 Receiving the donation on behalf of the school was Glenn, the school's Deputy Principal.

 Our second beneficiary was the Batten Disease
 and Support Research Association.
 Batten disease is a fatal, inherited disorder of the nervous system 
that typically begins in childhood.
 With two daughters having had the disease,
 Pauline shared her story and that of the work required to find a cure.

Our final recipient of the night was the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation.
 Their representative, Anne, spoke about the work of the Foundation
 in assisting the hospital with vital medical equipment, 
specialist staff, research, complementary services
and services beyond PMH

E-Books for Blondes could just be the perfect way
 to read a book for those that are challenged by technology.
 The convenience and simplicity of having the book 
on your iPad or Tablet just can’t be beat

 I wish I spoke French so I could understand what he’s saying
 but the act was funny and entertaining anyway.
