President Peter is back!

It’s great to be back in Perth having spent a week in Jordan. While the trip was primarily business, I did spend an hour looking at an old Roman amphitheater, in the centre of Amman, that seated 6,000 people.  One interesting feature that I noticed on all walkways, were what appeared to be drains, but in fact were part of the sound system!
 
 
Noonkopir Primary School Ablutions Project
Project leader Chris Whelan reports that funding for the Special Needs Unit in Kenya is complete and fully funded. In addition to the USD35,000 RF Global Grant, USD40,000 was received from DFAT, and USD10,000 from a public solicitation on the Global Giving  platform. Construction has started.
Once again, well done Chris and Mama Respond!
 
Perth Makers Market
Another beautiful Perth autumn day saw a good crowd attend Sundays market.
 
Many thanks to Club members, partners, E Club, WBSS, and Attadale RC who assisted in making this event a success again.

Don’t miss it!

 
ROTARY ART SHOW AND SALE
 
Click here for the ROSTER for the upcoming Art Show.
 
Would appreciate you checking all detail and to make sure I haven’t left out any detail – or added members incorrectly.
A number of you have indicated an intent to participate but unsure of timings until closer to the event.
Members include Tom and Ron.
Other members have volunteered additional times – should the need arise.
As you will see there are a number of gaps which need to be filled – so “all hands on deck”  please.
 
Set up involves getting Trestle tables.
Melville RC are supplying 6 – so we need to get the other 6.
This is really important – so whoever has some tables – please let me know.
 
Chris and I will be leaving for Kalbarri early Tuesday morning – and back on the 10th or 11th.
I will be available on both email and or phone.
 
In closing many thanks to all who have offered to assist.
 
Cheers
Hamish

MUSINGS OF A PARKING LIEUTENANT
PMM Project Leader Brett H does his final checks 
 
Well, another PMM behind us, and hopefully another strong fund raiser for those with a need.
 
However, for the operations team, there’s is always something to laugh, cry, or enjoy about happenings on the day!
 
You have to laugh… at those dear drivers who, on seeing a collection request, make sure the window is up, a grim look covers their face, and they try to move past as if we don’t exist….. and those which only the ‘rights’ of an ACROD pass confer, have the indignation to DEMAND a spot, even when we are totally full up…. And those gob- smacked who ‘just come for the playground’, or a family picnic,  totally unaware that the event is on, … and some of our dear ethnic friends who look at you dumbfounded when one asks for a ‘donation for charity’!
 
Drop a tear when idiots, despite directions, insist on driving up the wrong, out going lane, and have to be directed out without causing total chaos,…or  want to stop and have a chat, despite traffic building behind them and holding up normal traffic flow,…. Or in the lower car park, get bogged in the sand due to stopping and trying to drive on again…
 
But on the enjoyment side, working to a schedule with a wonderful group of fellow ‘volunteer soldiers’, irrespective of the heat, wind, rain … or early hour set up/later hour pull down, sharing in the fantastic fund raising the event presents, and knowing that Applecross Rotary has again overseen a very well organised event management activity.
 
Long may we soldier on with this event, and have a laugh or a cry along the way!
 
PP Barry M shows how to do it from year's of practice!
