 Supplies of most of the products on hand,
so we can start supplying to any Clubs who want to sell early.
This also enables country Clubs to make arrangements
 to collect them when someone is traveling to Perth
 as there is not the margin in them for me to be able to deliver,


Since becoming involved with distribution 
of Rotary Chistmas Cakes & Puddings,
We have been promoting donating 
cakes & puddings to Foodbank
. The Rotary club of Bunbury Club donates 
about 100 to Bunbury Foodbank.

For the Clubs wanting to donate to Perth Foodbank,
 they just notify me what they want to donate –
 some just give me a $ amount and 
we make up a mix of cakes & puddings –
  then invoice them for the amount
and we do the delivery to Foodbank
. last year it was 14 cartons to Perth Foodbank.
One of the reasons we promote this is 
because the recipients of food
from Foodbank do not usually get to see 
that Rotary is a strong supporter of Foodbank
and getting something with the Rotary logo
 is about the most effective way of achieving this.

Rotary Club of Fremantle
On September 26th this Rotary year
 the Rotary Club of Fremantle
will celebrate its 86th birthday

The club was the second club chartered in Western Australia;

It was chartered in 1928 just 12 months 
after the Rotary Club of Perth in 1927

On June 27 1928,
 a number of Fremantle businessmen were invited to a meeting
at the Fremantle Chamber of commerce,
where they were addressed by
District Governor Fred Birks of District 65

In 1928 District 65 covered the whole of Australia

Others to address the meeting were the
Rotary Club of Perth President Sinclair J McGibbon

Sir William Lathlain,
 the charter president of the Perth Rotary Club
who was also a former Mayor of the City of Perth

There being 16 intending members it was decided to form a club

And the first meeting was held at the Orient Hotel on July 11th  1928

Under the Presidency of GF Moore,
Fremantle became a chartered club no 2961 on September 28th

In that year with a membership of 16
the club topped the attendance list for Australia

Annual fees were Four Pounds and Four shillings

It took four years for the membership to top 50
and another 19 years for membership to reach 100

As membership increased so,
 did the territorial area
Now sharing the whole of Western Australia 
with the Rotary Club of Perth


The Perth and Fremantle clubs were the only clubs 
in Western Australia
until the formation of the Bunbury Club 
12 years later on July 10th 1939

Fremantle club has provided from its ranks 
several District Governors,
and has been closely associated with the civic life of Fremantle

At one time having six councillors in its membership
Two members have presided as Mayor of Fremantle
The late Sir Frank Gibson 1919/1923, 1927/1951
And Sir Frank Samson 1951/1972
Totalling between them a period of 49 years

A distinguished member of the Club was John Curtin
a war time Prime Minister who was made a member in 1942
He died two years later

In 1977 there was only one surviving Charter member
He was 90 year old Jasper Green
Jasper had the unusual classification of Outpost member, 
Wool Growing
This was given to him when he left Fremantle
to live in Carnamah 300 kilometres away
 where there was no club
The classification allowed maintenance of membership with 40% attendance


Developments in the city over many years
 have received strong Rotary Support
and the club instigated and supported
 these projects in its early history
including the establishment
Young Men’s Christian Association
A Senior Citizens centre
A Meals on Wheels service
A Women’s night Shelter
A Prison Workshop
The Olympic Swimming poll
A Mission to Seamen’s Centre
A Heart Ambulance
and many others

In  1930 history shows 
 that the first Ladies luncheon was held
And Ladies night’s were held annually and still continue
In 1932 a Fathers and Sons luncheon was held
This was changed to a Sons and Daughters Dinner two years later

The current Fremantle Club
recently  amalgamated with The Fremantle Port club
Today’s major Fundraisers and the Annual Art Show
And a combined Golf Day withe Rotary Club of Attadale

Currently meeting evenings at the
 Villa Roma Restaurant in High Street
2014 / 2015  President is Bob Coventry

All the monks in a certain monastery sing the simple word “Morning!”
 from their windows each sunrise.
 One day, after several “Morning!” greetings had been sung,
 a greeting of “Evening!” rang out.
In the courtyard below, a startled Brother Timothy said,
 “Did you hear that, Brother Edward?”
 “Hear what, Brother Timothy?” replied Brother Edward.
Brother Timothy sang in reply:
“Someone chanted evening…”
