Introducing 2014-15 Rotary International President Gary C.K. Huang

shared John Hewko's album.




Hat Day is here again on Friday October 10th, 2014 -
the fundraising day where you wear a hat and raise funds
 for mental health research.
 We're asking organisations, clubs, businesses 
and others to show their support for the 1 in 5
 people suffering a mental illness.

100% of the funds you raise will go directly
 to mental health research projects around Australia
 through Australian Rotary Health.

So will you get involved?
We've just launched a brand new website for this year's Hat Day

Download your 'How to Host a Day' Guide from the Hat Day Host Kit.
 Get helpful tips, and use some of these resources to help promote the day:
  • posters
  • flyers
  • invites
  • receipt sheet

Thank you for your support. If you have any questions or would like more information and resources, please contact us on 1800 781 878 or email

Club Changeovers

Rotary Club of Bridgetown

A great night at our 60th/changeover dinner on Monday. 
District GovernorBrian and Pam came -
 first cab off the rank after Brian's installation
 which chuffed us no end.

We had a great night with 23 members from our Sponsor Club Manjimup
 - 45 all told. Everyone enjoyed themselves - 
especially when I played the Cliff Dochterman 
"how did Rotary begin" video while we were waiting for the meal. 
It then turned out that one of our members
 (Honorary) Warren Johnston and Barbara were in the DG training session
 when Cliff was coming in as RI president - 
Warren can still fit into his red coat and was wearing it on Monday. 
So when we learned this I played the "If I was President Again" video
 in which Cliff was wearing his red coat

Around the Clubs

Rotary Club of Hannans Kalgoorlie
Last week we farewelled the Horsley family
 who are relocating to the Metro area.
 Lorraine was our last remaining charter member 
and she will be fondly remembered for her passion to literacy
 and the youth in the Goldfields. 
Lorraine was instrumental in initiating a program
 to give a book to each child at the East Kalgoorlie Primary School, 
now in its 15th year.
 Children from the school made cards to thank Lorraine 
and her family for their contribution and along with newspaper articles,
 a collage was made as a parting gift that we are sure
 will be pride of place in their new house. 
Geoff has been the ever dependable Rotarian
 with his cool and calming attitude 
and sheer determination to get the job down!
 Geoff and Lorraine maintained an active involvement 
in the club over the past 20 years while raising their family 
and in turn their children have been involved along the way,
 helping at book sales, sausage sizzle and the list goes on. 
We wish them every success as their journey in life changes location. 
The whole family will be sadly missed by the Rotarians
 of the Rotary Club of Hannans-Kalgoorlie
 and the wider community of Kalgoorlie-Boulder

Beanie and Socks Night.
It was great to see so many members at our last meeting
 bringing in beanies and socks to help those in need on these cold nights.
 The donated items will be shared between St Patrick’s, Sista’s Place and Wesleylink.

  The meeting was our “Socks and Beanies Night”.
 We all brought in socks and beanies to donate to people in need. 
One box was full to overflowing with beanies of all shapes, colours 
and sizes and another box was filled with socks.

Dear Family and Friends, 

I have decided to make a difference by taking part in the 
You Are Beautiful’ Fundraising Photographic Exhibition 
to raise funds for Cancer Support WA.

Cancer Support WA helps individuals and families dealing 
with Cancer by providing support services 
and the only 24 hour Cancer Support phone line in Australia.

YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL is a unique photographic exhibition 
and book project celebrating the life
 and stories of people touched by cancer.

The project  is organized  by Cancer Support WA
 in partnership with Master Photographer Janet Craig
and other sponsors.

The purpose of You are Beautiful 
 is to bring awareness to the untold stories of people with cancer,
 and to raise funds for Cancer Support WA.

Through here you can easily support my efforts
 by sponsoring my portrait,
 by making a secure donation online.

I would also really appreciate it if you could share my page
 above or comment below so more people know about it.

Click 'Donate Now' to make a secure online donation.
 (you will have to copy and paste into your browser)   

All donations over $2 are tax deductible 
and you will be issued with a DGR receipt via email
 as soon as you make a donation, 
which can be used at Tax time.

Cancer Support WA is hoping to raise $200,000.00.
 Your donation will help us reach this goal 
and the images will be displayed in a public exhibition in 2015.
 Details of the exhibition will be emailed to you closer to the date.

Thank you for your support!

 Sue Hurt

“You are Beautiful” is an Exhibition of portraits
 and stories featuring West Australians .
The aim of the campaign is to share the diverse personal stories
 of people who have experienced difficulty and trauma of cancer
 then found their strength, joy and will to live.
The portraits and stories are to be displayed
 in a public exhibition in 2015.

The campaign will bring public awareness to the effects of cancer 
on West Australian families and to work of the Cancer Support WA
