Youth mental health needs our attention.

Donate to our COVID-19 appeal today to support research 
into the mental health of young Australians (aged 0-25):

'We give them hope, hope that whatever condition they 
have can be treated and fixed at their level,
 but also hope to the hospital and the trainees that they can 
learn enough to be able to treat these conditions themselves.' Dr Mark Strahan
We thank our volunteers for their tireless pursuit of 
Interplast's mission in repairing bodies and rebuilding lives.

After nearly 2 months of Rotary service under COVID - 19 restrictions,
 it was a fantastic opportunity for Palm Beach Rotarians to return
 to the excellent hospitality of the Clipper Hotel
 for a combination face to face and ZOOM Meeting.
A HUGE thank you to Dean and Natalie for making
 the evening especially enjoyable.

Members had lots to share and many more activities
 to do together as we move towards the conclusion
 of our 2019/2020 Rotary Year.

At last night’s meeting our president Richard
 informed members that our very own 

 had been selected as the District Representative for the
 MY HOME project being supported by Rotary Clubs in District 9455
 as part of the Homelessness Hub.
 The Homeless Hub was set up to support homelessness projects
 in District 9455, 
to link Rotary to the WA homelessness agencies
 and to advocate for homeless people within the WA Community.

MY HOME is an innovative project that takes advantage 
of surplus state government land to provide housing
 to homeless women aged 55 and over. 
The proposal involves the construction of self-contained single bedroom units 
that would remain in place for a period of 15 years
 and would be considered an ‘interim use’. 
Lightweight flat pack construction would allow for the removal 
of the units if and when the land is required for its reserved purpose.

Congratulations Kay and well done!

 Our club is pleased to mentor 5 International University Students
 as part of The Rotary Global Citizen Award.
 It is a unique opportunity for overseas students
 to help develop lasting career connections and networks in Western Australia,
 participate in volunteering projects to build community involvement,
 increase professional and personal development, 
and become of the Rotary Global family.

With the easing of restrictions on lock down,
 a number of members and partners enjoyed some good fellowship
 last Saturday evening with a Guess Who's Coming to Dinner meal.
 Several couples acted as hosts, 
not knowing who was coming to dinner until their allocated guests
 arrived on their doorstep. 
A great night was had by all, with everyone appreciating
 the opportunity to see each other in person after weeks of isolation.

 Our generous friends from Rotary Western Endeavour!

looking for a mate, or trying to feed lots of hungry mouths,
 animals are very busy this time of year.
