Rotary Club of Applecross


Today (Saturday 21 July 2018)
, Applecross Rotary hosted a Melville Rotaract Information session and lunch. 
 President Ian was really pleased to see a number of Applecross Rotarians there.
 Our club was joined by Rotarians from the Attadale and Booragoon clubs.  

Our own Lesley Combes told us that she had been a member
 of the former Melville Rotaract Club.
This experience counted as an important part of her life
 as a 19 year old country girl coming to grips with living in the City.
  Unfortunately, the old Melville Rotaract Club folded some years ago.

What we know now -- continuing support from Rotarians 
is critical for the success of Rotaract Clubs.
 The number of Rotarians present today augers well
 for the new Rotaract Club. 
We will be asking Rotarians to volunteer
 to mentor our Rotaract members. 
Mentoring is valuable to retaining great members 
and maturing the new club.

Sponsoring (or co-sponsoring) a Rotaract Club
 is something that new RI President, Barry Rassin,
 has high on his list of things for Clubs to do.
 It is on our members' list too.
 We are aiming to have our Club awarded a Rotary Citation this year,
 and this initiative will have us on the way.

Rotary Club of Busselton Geographe Bay

Helping hand for homeless

The Rotary Club of Busselton Geographe Bay
 has facilitated a much-needed donation
 for several Busselton support services.
When the club heard Qantas was clearing its blanket stock,
 Rotarians Chris and Peter White travelled to Perth
 to collect as much as they could for the Busselton community.
The club acquired 100 quilts and 50 blankets,
 which they split between AccordWest,
 St Mary's Anglicare Emergency Relief
 and the Salvation Army.
Ms White said the club was happy 
to help support such worthy recipients.
“AccordWest really work on the ground with the homeless
 in Busselton and St Mary’s and the Salvation Army
 are quite prominent for the work they do in the community
 to support those in need,” she said.
St Mary's Anglicare Emergency Relief volunteer 
Sandra Marriott welcomed the donation.
“We are seeing more homeless in town than last year, 
whether it is people who are couch surfing, 
staying in tents or cars, or who have no fixed address,” she said.
“This winter has been particularly wet and cold
 so this donation makes a real difference.”

The donation coincides with Homelessness Week,
 which runs until August 12.

Rotary Club of Booragoon

Our vice-president Matt braved the cold last night and slept outside
 to help raise awareness and funds in support of homelessness.
Our shivering vice-president had the luxury of only enduring one night
 outside and got to go home to a warm shower and warm bed,
 however, over 9000 West Australians every night are not afforded this luxury.
Every bit counts when it comes to making a difference for people in need.
