Rotary Club of Fremantle

Fremantle 1945 ,
 Freo Rotary doing what they have always done for 90 years,
 supporting our community
. War Savings Group met on Nov 6 1940.
 It was resolved that a Sub-committee containing 
Scanlan Bateman Oxbrow and Miller
 approach his Worship the Mayor to formulate a scheme for 
War Saving Certificates CHRISTMAS DINNER 1 9 4 0

It was originally' decided by the Directors to dispense with this function
 and substitute the gift of 10/- hampers to deserving cases 
as a Christmas Cheer from each member of the Club.

This decision was upset at the Weekly Luncheon on 11th December
 by members expressing the wish that we hold our usual Christmas Dinner
 accompanied by our Ladies.
 But it was made clear that we carry on with the Christmas Hampers too.
 It is good to state that both efforts were highly successful.
 It was resolved that Rotarian Claude Terry be granted Leave-of-Absence 
for the duration of the War and be absolved from paying his fees.

It was resolved that a letter be written to the District Governor stating
 that the Club had granted Leave-of-absence to all those on Military Services
 absolved from paying any fees.

It was resolved that letter be forwarded to Rotarian Bob Menzies Military Cross 
to his son for conspicuous on the awarding of the gallantry at Alamein.
 It was resolved that a letter be sent to Captain C.R. Dunkley
 congratulating him on his wonderful service
 with the troops in Timor

Rotary in Mandurah raise funds for the 
National Farmers Drought Distribution Fund.
The three Rotary Clubs in Mandurah and Mandurah Rotoract Club
 collected over $3,000 for the appeal over three days.

Halls Head Central Marketing Manager Taryn MacDonald 
said she knew she could rely on Rotary to coordinate a collection event 
enabling many shoppers to contribute to this appeal.  

Craig Waterman and Linda Rhees-Mogg from Squared Away Inc,
 received a cheque for $1,500 from President Geoff Winton,
 to purchase a trailer.
Squared Away supports young men with a mental illness
 to live and work together.  
The trailer will be used to transport materials and equipment to work areas. 

Mr Waterman said, ‘Plans for a five-acre property,
 to be turned into an office,
 work skills area and accommodation, are almost complete. 
 Sometimes, if you are suffering depression, anxiety, and loneliness
 or even estranged from your family,
 there is nowhere to turn without endless appointments and assessments.
 We are creating a couple of spaces where men 
can go and spend time with mentors and 
chat, have a barbeque and a camp fire.

Past President Murray Love,
 co-coordinator of the Sunday Swap Meet
