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 health and water based projects that will save lives.... we're an ambitious club with the power to get things done.

The 21st Rotary Jacaranda Festival will be held on the 27th of November at its well established home in Applecross Village, and promises to be bigger and better than ever!!

“What started out with very humble beginnings in year 2000 and is now recognised as one of the BEST community Festivals in Perth, continues to charm all who attend,” Kenn Williams, from the organising committee said. “Set  amongst the shady flowering Jacaranda trees and commercial hub of Ardross St., without doubt, it really does take some beating “

Certainly Covid-19 WA Health protocols must be again followed, but it will not have the crowd limitations of last year, as it currently stands. Only a QR Code check-in will be required, as for any other public event.

Following a long wait for a reply from the Greenbatch Foundation Liquidators (CorCordis), an offer from Perth Rotarian and Rotary-Greenbatch Alliance chair David Wee was accepted for the remaining assets excluding some items that were still being contested. 
 
This allowed for Applecross Rotary to recover 50 x 240L bins that were purchased through a 'Communities Environment Program' (CEP) grant that was received in March 2020. The grant was to fund a Schools Recycling Program for the schools in the City of Melville delivered by the Greenbatch Foundation.

Our guest speaker for last meeting was Kelly Keall, the Community Engagement Coordinator Philanththropy and Enterprise for Anglicare WA.  Kelly connects schools, parishes and community groups with the many aspects of Anglicare WA's work.
 
Anglicare supports people, families and communities with many services as they move from surviving, to coping, to building, to thriving.
 
Kelly took the opportunity, being Homelessness Week,  to focus on the support Anglicare provides for Homelessness through the following programs -
  • Street Connect - supporting young people who are street present
  • Y-SHAC - crisis and short-term transitional housing
  • YES! Housing - outreach support to help young people maintain a social housing tenancy
  • Foyer Oxford - long-term accommodation for residents engaged in employment, education or training
 

Change your community with us by volunteering on a local project.

We work with groups and organisations of all sizes.
