Making a difference... you can too
If you give people the opportunity they can achieve outstanding things. 
 
It's this simple philosophy that inspires a lot of the work Applecross Rotary does, locally and further afield. 
 
Our members come from all walks of life - we're engineers, lawyers, marketeers, scientists, educators, farmers and retailers, the list goes on - and we range in age from our early 20s through to mid 80s. The commonality we share is an interest in using our time, skills and energy to improve the lives of others . And we like to have fun while we do it!
 
Our projects are equally varied. From our much-loved Rotary Jacaranda Festival, the Pride of Workmanship Awards, a local Art Show and Sale, numerous youth initiatives as well as supporting indigenous, mental health and women's refuge projects and delivering major heath and water based projects that will save lives.... we're an ambitious club with the power to get things done. 
 
GET IN TOUCH
Applecross Rotary meets weekly but we've embraced a more flexible approach to membership. 
 
We usually meet on Tuesday mornings at 7am for a 7.30am start, at the Dome Café, Deep Water Point, Mt Pleasant. However, due to COVID19 restrictions we are now meeting via ZOOM every Tuesday at 7:30am. 
 
The meeting format with a guest speaker is similar to our face to face meetings. If you would like to join us send a request to ray@applecrossrotary.org and we will send you a meeting invitation.
 
 We love to welcome visitors so feel free to get in touch and arrange to come along to one of our meetings or regular social events to try us on for size. If you're interested in finding our more about becoming a member please drop us a line.
 

Upcoming speakers at our Tuesday breakfast meetings (7am for 7.30am start, finishing at 8.30am)

*Pat has significant experience across the community and government sectors, including Chairing the State and Federal Australian Dental Associations and is a former member of the State Dentists’ Registration Board. In 2001, he was made a Member of the Order of Australia for his contribution to the Australian Community. 
 
St Patrick’s Community Support Centre lies at the heart of the Fremantle community.  It started in 1972, when a frail elderly man appeared at the door of the Presbytery seeking help. He was cold, hungry and in serious need of care. 
Due to COVID 19 restrictions many of Cecil's Rotary friends were unable to attend his funeral.  Applecross Rotary was represented by Lorri Brazier, Kenn Williams and Ian Fairnie.  Lorri's entry into Cecil's funeral booklet perfectly decribed the impression Cecil  had on his fellow Applecross Rotary;  Rotarians, partners and friends. 
"Even though my friendship with Cecil was for a short time he was one of nature’s gentlemen. He had a priceless sense of humour, and that twinkle in his eye and mischievous grin - he always made me laugh. I will miss him at Rotary. God Bless" Lorri Brazier
 
We thank Elizabeth for sharing information from Cecil's funeral.
