 from the Rotary club of Mindarie newsletter

How many initiatives can you think of that have introduced 
more than 1000 business people to Rotary? 

Four years of membership growth in Rotary District 9465
 can be attributed to the good work of many dedicated Rotarians.
 The business networking project, developed 
by D9465 PR Director John Stockbridge, 
has introduced more than 1000 business people 
to clubs in the district.
 It's a gamechanger.

John will be presenting on the nuts and bolts
 of his success story soon. 
Be sure to join in for the conversation

Rotary Club of Ascot

Members of Ascot Rotary have once again come to the party
 to support women and children escaping domestic and family violence.

Their donation to Starick of $7 900 will support women and children 

who are part of our Safe at Home program in the Ascot Rotary catchment areas 
to improve the security of their homes. 

Fleeing domestic violence often results in homelessness for women and children.

 The Safe at Home program seeks to address this by supporting 
women and children to stay safely in their own homes. 

Pictured  are Ascot Rotary President Ron Alexander and Chair of Starick, Wendy Wiley,

 who received this very generous donation

Rotary Club of Busselton Geographe Bay

Rotary Club of Karrinyup

It was great to see our International Director Peter Durrant
 back in Perth for the meeting this week 
and sporting a new look slim line look. 
Following Water and Sanitation Month,
 Peter delivered a timely update 
on the RC Karrinyup Zambia Water Project 

Phase 1 of the project,
 which provides clean drinking water for a school
 of 80 vulnerable children in Nbola, Zambia,
 has been completed. 
As we move into Phase 2, school director Joyce 
has provided a landmark detailed progress report 
and Peter is working to tighten the coalition
 with the Zambian Rotary clubs. 
Meanwhile, our club member Nchima 
has just returned from a visit to Zambia 
and we look forward to receiving his report on the status onsite. 

Peter Martin introduced Samantha Jenkinson,
 an advocate for the rights of people with disabilities since the early 1990’s,
 and throughout her professional life as a Social Worker. Samantha,
 who was disabled following a motor vehicle accident
, at the age of twenty, is the Executive Director of "People with Disabilities WA".
  She stated that 1 in 5 people or 4.3 million in Australia are disabled.

Our club has supported the Multiple Sclerosis Society of WA 
over many years
 This week, Community Service Committee member 
Colin made our annual donation to Sue from MS WA.
 Sue says she almost feels like a member
 of the RC Karrinyup now, 
as she has been so often.
 Sue thanked the club for our ongoing support.
 She gave us an update on latest developments 
and support for clients,
 as the society expands its footprint with a move
 from Wangara to Joondalup. 
She told us our donation would be spent 
on a special hoist for the Joondalup facility.   

Club members will remember the efforts Trish Lynch 
went to in promoting our club with the Facebook photo album 
for Rotary's birthday on 23 March. 
However, they may not be aware that she was recognised 
 This week their Chair Rotarian Kate McKenzie
 from E-WA Rotary met up with Trish to present her with a pin,
 which she won for her participation
 in the photo competition. 
At our meeting this week, 
Trish presented the pin to Ona.

At the club's meeting on 04 April, members and numerous guests

and the presentation was enjoyed by all. 
 Sam can be seen with President Jeremy Wood
 and President Elect Peter Pearse.

Emma Piper-Burket did this project to see if the life of a woman
 could be illustrated by clips of women
 from films directed by women.
 She found movies spanning 122 years
 from every corner of the world, 
and set to work.

This is an exercise that could be re-examined daily
, each time with different results,
 and this makes me incredibly optimistic.
 As a female filmmaker it is easy to get discouraged 
in the face of all the statistics,
 but putting this together, and seeing in condensed form 
the work of over a century women 
using film as a medium for expression,
