 in the official Friendship Forest. 
President Riseley’s tree planting initiative encourages Rotary clubs
 to have a one tree planted for every member of their club by Earth Day, 22 April 2018.

  • Vocational Service Director Nick Nedkoff, Pres Phil Ledger
  •  and Charter Member Ian McDonagh with the Indigenous Service Award

During the 2016 - 2017 Rotary year, for the third consecutive year,
 District 9455 again recognised the Rotary Club of Karrinyup 
as having made a significant contribution to Indigenous people through the Earbus project.
President Phil received the award at the District Changeover
 and last night was able to present the Indigenous Service Award for 2016 - 2017
 to Vocational Service Director Nick and charter member Ian,
 whose initiative recommended the project to the club
 and who was the driving force behind the fund raising. 
The Indigenous service award recognises a club project
 that benefits or will benefit the indigenous community or communities the most.
 There is no doubt that the Earbus project 
will make a huge difference both in prevention, as well as cure,
 of ear disease among remote indigenous communities in WA.

The project was completed on budget and on time 
in December 2016 with the Earbus being handed over to the Earbus Foundation
 for final fit out and road testing.
 The official hand over took place at the Stirling Farmers Market in April 2017.

Stuart introduced guest speaker Gillian Lilleyman
, who delighted us with tales from Fanny Bussell Brockman's Diaries
 The diaries span the years from 1872 to 1905.
 Gillian is the author of "A Garden on the Margaret".
