Very pleased to have Christine Young join us for this week's meeting as I would like to attempt to engage City of Melville in AMR campaign.  I also welcomed prospective member Wilfred Dorey and after some prompting, my wife Margaret!

Directors and Chairs

Liz Palmer thanked the team who moved 200 virtually new pillowcases, sheets and doonas to the Starick Refuge last week.  
Kenn Williams asked for further nominations for Associate Membership – he currently has 13 names. They will be welcomed at a dinner on Wednesday 18 September, meaning there will be NO MEETING on Tuesday morning 17 September.
Ray Philp alerted members to the fact that our newest member Chris Caithness has joined our Facebook's editing group and is promoting our weekly guest speakers with an invitation for members of the public to join us.  Members can assist in spreading our Facebook posts through sharing them to their networks.
George Mavros won the wine thanks to tosser Kenn Williams.
Kenn happy to be home, and Liz happy that David Palmer is back home later this week.
Ray Philp put the wrong roster in the Applecross Advocate but blamed Ian Fairnie for not picking the error when he proof read the copy!
Ian Fairnie was happy to win the AFL Tipping Competition and is looking forward to the BIG prize promised by the competition organiser, and President Barry paid up for forgetting to welcome Margaret to the meeting.
GUEST SPEAKER - President Barry Mendelawitz
President Barry pointed out that Rotarians save lives all over the world through having nearly eradicating polio, and many sanitation and water projects, for example.
What we are getting better at, is understanding the interaction between humans, animals and the environment, and he used the example of a recently introduced disease of bats in the USA which has caused very high numbers of deaths.  As each bat eats up to 4 million mosquitoes every night, the loss of bat numbers has led to rapidly increasing number of mosquitoes, which in turn has caused a rise in malaria infections, and these are showing increased resistance to antimalarial medications.
We need to keep hammering away at the AMR message – hand washing, vaccination, and careful use of antibiotics, not only in humans but also in animal production systems and aquaculture.
We will be “walking the talk” at the Jacaranda Festival this year promoting hand sanitation in the food area and the animal petting zoo, with the invaluable assistance of Pharmacy 777’s donation of hand sanitation dispensers.
Barry and Margaret are also visiting Canberra in early October to meet Australia’s Chief Vet, Rotarian Mark Schipp, and District Governor Elect Michael Moore.  He is a former health Minister for the ACT, and a national leader in Public Health. Our Honorary Member Ben Morton will join in the discussions aimed at starting an international Rotary Action Group.
We haven’t heard the last of AMR or One Health!


Human, animal and environmental health are strongly linked.



A multi-disciplinary approach can help identify, prevent and manage common issues.



By working together across sectorsand borders, the health of people, animals and the environment can be improved.
