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.

This weeks guest speaker was Applecross Rotarian PP Hamish Turner.
 
Hamish has had a passion for the environment since early childhood growing up in South Africa.
 
Hamish retired in August 2017 and after a couple of overseas projects decided to do something local.  Having wildlife as a passion and a second home in Kalbarri he thought Kalbarri was a pretty good spot to start.
 
The idea come up looking at the plight of our wildlife to create a wildlife reserve that would become a world class Ecotourism facility and the reintroduction of Endangered small mammals and Plant species.

    Kenn Williams picked up our new trailer from John Papas Trailers (50 years locally manufacturing trailers) that was built to the specifications designed by Kenn and Mal Taylor.  The new trailer will replace Kenn's trailer that the club has been using for a number of years to transport the significant amount of club property that we use for the Perth Makers Market and the Jacaranda Festival.  The trailer will also be used for other club projects such as transporting furniture for Starick clients and  will be a great asset for our new project with Greenbatch and the Container Deposit Scheme.  The new trailer is larger and has a mesh cage, tool box and ramps to assist with loading and unloading.  Signage will be able to attach to the mesh sides to promote Rotary's activities to the public and provide contact information for people interested in joining us.
