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. 
 
GET IN TOUCH
Applecross Rotary meets weekly but we've embraced a more flexible approach to membership. 
 
We meet on Tuesday mornings at 7am for a 7.30am start, at the Dome Café, Deep Water Point, Mt Pleasant. and via ZOOM  for our members and guests who cannot make the meetings in person. 
 
If you would like to join us send an email to secretary@applecrossrotary.org
 
 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.
 
Club News

At the recent MCCC Business After Hours co-hosted by Applecross Rotary and MarketLife, we took the opportunity to present a Community Service Award to Monica Morunga who has set up a charity, Feed it Forward, that feeds thousands of familys every month. Feed it Forward started collecting from a few local stores around Baldivis but has since grown to collect from over 90 places across WA and has more than 300 volunteers.  The Club also donated $1000 to the 'Feed It Forward' charity.

Do you feel confident that you know all that is available to you in Rotary?  Rotary Leadership Institutes provide current information on how to be as involved as you wish in Rotary.   There are so many opportunities available to you both for your own personal and professional development as well as how you can support your club and communities, both near and far. These Institutes are for two days but held on one day each on separate weekends, we know your family and personal time is precious so we are making it as easy as possible for you to attend.  There will be an Institute coming up very soon in October, spaces are limited so don't miss out and book in early. The trainers are experienced Rotarians and passionate about sharing their experiences with you. In Western Australia, we provide these Institutes at no cost to you, just your time and attention. If you are in a position of leadership in your Club, and have not attended one of these, then this is a great opportunity for you to ensure you can support your Club to the best of your knowledge. See the following flier for details. Registrations will be closing soon and we hope to see you there!

RYLA is an intensive eight-day program designed for 18-28 year olds with leadership potential and a commitment to community service. The program is a unique opportunity aimed to bring participants out of their comfort zone and challenge them to think outside the square while actively using and building on their existing skills and knowledge. RYLA includes seminars, workshops, physical activities and team games relating to areas including Communication and Public Speaking, Leadership, Team Work and Group Dynamics, Problem Solving and Decision Making, Goal Setting, Time Management and Self Awareness and Emotional Intelligence. All applications must include the name of their sponsoring Rotary Club, and we expect that applicants have contacted their local Rotary Club to arrange sponsorship prior to submitting the form.  The RYLA Committee will assist with this if necessary. Applicants are interviewed prior to acceptance onto RYLA.  Successful applicants will have the energy, commitment and motivation to develop their leadership potential and be willing to challenge themselves physically and mentally over the course of the program.   Please note: Applicants who have come to us via a Rotary Club will receive priority acceptance onto the program.
 
RYLA is held at the Serpentine Camping Centre from Saturday 7th January – Saturday 14th January 2023.
