Where is President Peter?
Peter sends his greetings from Aqaba, Jordan heading to Amman via the Dead Sea today and will be back home on Wednesday night.  He sends his apologies for this week's breakfast meeting.
Unfortunately, last week's Dinner Meeting had to be cancelled due to our guest speaker's family being affected by COVID protocols.  We look forward to a future opportunity to hear from the CEO of DOME, Nigel Oakley.
This week's guest speaker via Zoom is Nick Lim, Past President of  Rotary Elizabeth Quay (EQ). Nick will be talking about 'membership techniques' his club uses to attract new members. The last time Nick spoke to our club was about the technology EQ uses to communicate with their members.  Coincidently it corresponded to the start of the COVID lockdowns (March 2020) and Nick was our first guest speaker to present via Zoom.
Chris Whelan has been busy on his 'holiday' in Broome, transfering funds that have been donated to the Noonkopir Special Needs Unit Project now that the global Grant for US$ 36,021.00 has been approved.  The funding is to provide toilet facilities, medical assistance, and health education to approximately 40 students with disabilities at Noonkopir Township Primary School in Kitengela, Kenya, submitted by Rotary Club of Embakasi and Applecross Rotary.  As well as our contribution we are very appreciative of the support from other Rotary clubs.
AG Kenn has arrange a meeting with the City of Melville Mayor for next Monday at 11:30am with representatives of the four clubs in his Zone to discuss the need for storage facilities for the Clubs' assets.

DG Newsletter, May 2022
Have you read this month's DG's Newsletter?  This is DG Pat's second to last newsletter and she has introduced District Governor Nominee for District 9423 (our new combined District), Ineke Oliver, following her year as DG for D9455.  PP Chris Whelan has been involved in the planning for creating the one Rotary West Australian District for 2024.

You have to believe: the times they are a’changin!
I have been banging on over recent times about The Changing Times in terms of how Rotary must change how we engage with our community if we are to attract more of the  community minded to support our wonderful organisation.
Getting our messaging right, and how we deliver it, to a world with changing community expectations and views on what is and isn’t relevant for their needs, is an essential change of process that we must consider.
And, LOW and BEHOLD, a ‘non political’ view of Saturday’s election outcome, just reinforces my view expressed above.
Like it or not, our ‘world’ is now seeking political engagement which definitively reflects the key interests of new realities: whether you agree with it or not, the old order just won’t resonate and people demand to see change. 
Both major parties lost ground, with one party able to harvest the preferential voting outcomes, through better positioning, to gain power. 
But therein lies the truth of todays world.
Aspirational beliefs in those who pitch to their interests, without necessarily having a defined means of outcomes attainment, won hands down against the traditional virtues and values that most of our generation stand for.
How it will change doesn’t seem to matter: if you say you support my current aspirations, you get my vote!
Underlying this is the undeniable truth that if we are to remain relevant and contribute to the changes to come, then we must positively review  how we engage in order to indeed carry influence on these changes, that they truly do reflect the better interests of all and not just the few!
We are so lucky with our ‘free’ State and Country, and however we can contribute, we do need to move with the times and secure that better tomorrow that all dream of!
My thoughts.
