Rotarians prepare to find inspiration in Toronto
More than 24,000 registered participants from 175 countries 
are expected to gather in Toronto from 23-27 June
 for Rotary's largest event of the year, the annual convention.
 Like Rotary, Toronto is a city that values diversity.
 Rotary members will hear from a lineup of inspiring speakers
 including former First Lady of the United States Laura Bush 
and HRH The Princess Royal, Princess Anne.
 They will also have a chance to renew friendships
 and enjoy the hospitality of local Rotarians
 as they share Canada's rich heritage.

Alan Briggs with school headmaster and local Banjar leader with the new library shelf 
(donated by local community) and books in the background.
 More books are to be installed, any new donations are going to be welcome.
 Already plans are in place to modify the shelf to be two-sided as more books arrive.
 YKIP will continue their assistance in training and monitoring the library use.

Even though the school was closed for a week,
 local Butiyang community members arrived to welcome Alan Briggs 
who was visiting on behalf of the West Perth Rotary Club to see the new library.
 The Banjar meeting place will be removed in due course and replaced with a larger,
new Banjar for the three local communities.
This Banjar housed the three classes of students prior to WPRC's
 involvement in completing the building of new class rooms.
