Great news for all Australians who would love to attend a Convention.

The convention is back Down Under 
The city of Melbourne has been provisionally selected 
as the site for the 2023 Rotary International convention.

Congratulations to the whole bid team who showcased 
the best of what Melbourne has to offer.

Our WA Rotaract Representative Sam and WA DRR elect Eeshwar 
were two of the 60 Rotaractors from around the world
 selected to attend the International Assembly,
 alongside all the District Governor Elects.
 This was an experience of a lifetime
 and they met so many inspiring individuals,
 including Tim from ShelterBox

Rotary Club of Margaret River

The Rotary Club of Margaret River recently had the pleasure
 of hosting a farewell dinner for retiring CEO
 of the Augusta Margaret River Shire, Gary Evershed.

The Club applauded Gary's leadership
 of our 'sea-change, tree-change' community
 where the main economic driver is tourism,
 but where there are many competing priorities.

Rotary Clubs around the world have the opportunity
 to recognise those who make significant contributions
 to their communities
. They do this by donating to The Rotary Foundation to fund
 its ongoing global educational and humanitarian projects.

By contributing in this way the Rotary Club of Margaret River w
as authorised to officially recognise Gary’s inspiring
 and transformational leadership in our own community
 by awarding him a Paul Harris Fellowship..

Rotary Club of Swan Valley

We had a great time last night at the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards
 with our two sponsored young adults Jasmine and Jolene. 
These 5-day leadership camps are inspirational!
 If you, or you know of someone who would be interested in coming next year,
 let us know as we are keen to support the future of young people.

Rotary Club of Karrinyup

A great night at the Perth International Airport last night
 as we welcomed home Jasmin from her 12 months in Spain 
 as a Rotary Youth Exchange student.
We also saw off Alicia who is heading to Norway 
 for her exchange.
 Alicia will arrive to -3 and snow, a slight difference
 to the 40 degree heat wave that she has just left.
Both girls had family and friends in attendance 
- and it was just terrific that their paths crossed 
for just enough time for a photo together

Rotary Club of Cockburn

We said farewell to Miella last night, our outbound Youth Exchange student
. Off to Spain for a year, enjoy and have a great year,
 we look forward to hearing about all your amazing adventures.
