Help launch our new global ad campaign,
 "People of Action"

While many people have heard of Rotary,
 few people actually understand what Rotary clubs do.
 In fact, 35 percent of the public is unfamiliar with any Rotary program,
 including their local club. 
That’s why Rotary has created a new global ad campaign called 
“People of Action.”
 The ads are available for download at 
 where you’ll also find guidelines on how to use 
and localize each element, making it easier for clubs
 in any part of the world to tell their story 
in a consistent, compelling way.

Why is the campaign’s theme “People of Action”?

Rotarians share a unique passion for taking action
 to improve their communities and the world. 
Where others see problems, we see solutions. 
This is our chance to show others how Rotarians
 see what’s possible in their communities 
and to highlight what we can achieve when
 more community leaders join Rotary.

Here’s what you need to know
Who are we trying to reach?

This campaign is for people who do not know about Rotary 
or why it’s relevant to them.
 We hope the campaign will appeal to potential members
 who want to make a difference in their communities
, those interested in Rotary’s causes,
 and people looking to establish relationships 
with others in their communities.

Rotary International

 Rotary signed a partnership agreement with the
 International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness.
 Their amazing work to eliminate the causes of preventable blindness
 will now be amplified by the network of 1.2 million Rotary members.

Rotary Club of Fremantle

Fremantle Rotary St Emilies Hostel Computer Project
This project is based in Northern Thailand. 
The Hostel provides remote based children somewhere to live 
so that they can attend school and get an education. 
Fremantle Rotary assisted by providing Computers to set up a classroom
 and give access to computers, the internet and learn computer skills.

In 2006, the Sisters of St Joseph opened up a hostel
 in the remote village of Mai Na Chon, Mae Cheam,
 about 3 hours north west of Chiang Mai, right up in the north west of Thailand.
 The hostel provides the children with somewhere to live while they attended school.
There are currently 70 children living there and parents pay 
with a combination of crops and cash. 
The children living at St Emilie’s come from the Karen and Hmong Hill Tribes.
 The hostel is located in an idyllic, rural setting. 
The hostel is run by two Sisters, who do an an amazing job.
Fremantle Rotary became involved in the project because PP Greg Paten 
was very keen that we became involved in an international project
 where members had the potential to visit and where we could be hands on.
 The St Emilie’s computer project seemed to fit all the parameters
 we were seeking in an international project
, especially the focus areas of education and literacy.
When the computers had been installed, one of our Rotarian's 
- Paul decided to visit St Emilie’s to see the facility and review the setup.
 Paul and Kaori visited St Emilie’s for 2 days in late May
. They were made extremely welcome at the hostel and also by the community.
 All of the children were assembled to give an official welcome 
and Paul and Kaori were presented with garlands.
The computers and a printer/scanner are installed and being well used.
 Money set aside for tuition was not required as the Sisters had that in hand
, so the funds were redirected to air conditioning of the computer room.
 It is located on the second floor for security reasons,
 but it is extremely hot.
Paul saw a need he could sort out whilst he was there. 
There was a volley ball net, but no volley ball. 
The children were playing soccer with flat balls.
 Sister Assumpta also wanted a rugby ball,
 even though she had no idea of how many people made up a team 
or the rules of the game.
 So, as an extension of the project, Paul bought a volley ball,
 soccer balls and a rugby ball.
The children were keen to speak to Paul and Kaori, asking lots of questions 
– especially of Kaori.
 They were warmly greeted wherever they went - 
If they knew any English, they would talk to you. 
And often even if they didn’t know any English, they would try to talk to you.
On the last night, the children performed some dances
, a bit like rap but not quite which was great fun, 
as they were wearing their Hill Tribe traditional dress.
 Everyone was very hospitable

A Ship Passed Us By and 
 You Won't Believe What Happened Next!

Check out this really amazing and interesting tsunami
 l experienced when a large cargo ship ran up the river passed me
. The water was sucked away from the shore 
and then a huge tidal wave engulfed me and my friend.
 It was fun, but a little scary for a few minutes
