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.

Have you heard about antimocrobial resistance? What about superbugs? Through #OneHealth we're working to improve wellbeing - through knowledge and through the simple act of handwashing.
 
Applecross Rotary supports the goals of AMR Aware, to increase community awareness and understanding of the “clear and present danger” from increasing resistance of disease causing agents to all current drugs available for treatment of infections.  The short video commissioned by AMR Aware Inc. and produced by Front Porch Films, provides a clear visual statement of the reality of the danger that exists and several simple things each of us can do to reduce the likelihood that someone we love will die from an untreatable infection.  The video will be freely available for Rotary clubs and Rotarians to spread the word of how simple it is to reduce the impact of drug resistant infectious agents, and more importantly stimulate the action required, as a matter of great urgency.  As Dame Sally Davies, Chief Medical Officer of the UK succinctly stated - we can forget Climate Change; we’ll all be dead from untreatable infections before climate change affects us!.
 
 
 
Our event chair, Kenn Williams, has been reported in the Fremantle Herald newspaper saying "if you thought that last years JacFest was fantastic, then be prepared for an even bigger and better event this year".  Over 600 hours of volunteer time go into the festival each year, culminating in as many as 15 community groups helping out on the day.  We have used all the media platforms to promote the event with Kenn even appearing on 'today tonight' as part of their story about the beautiful Jacarandas in full bloom.
