TUESDAY's BREAKFAST MEETING is at Karoonda Sporting Association.  PLEASE REGISTER so catering can be arranged.

@Nik & Kola
MC Chris Dawson welcomed members and introduced President Barry Mendelawitz. 
Barry made comment that he was officiating at his last meeting as President and the official changeover will be held in the coming weeks.
Barry extended a warm welcome to the "reincarnation" of PP Ian Fairnie, who was on morning release from hospital following major surgery.  Ian's guests were former Perth Rotarians Linda Le and Jarrad Brown from Singapore, who are stuck in Perth by COVID 19. 
Barry then went on to win Heads and Tails that the meeting thought was quite appropriate. 


PE Ray Philp reported that he had attended the District Changeover on Saturday night that was held via ZOOM.
The incoming District Governor is Colin Burns from the Como Club and he indicated that his 4 main priorities were -
  1. Establishing partnerships
  2. Communicating club activities for all to share and build the Rotary story
  3. Project renewal - each club to start one new project
  4. Work together to unite the world
Jacaranda Chair Kenn Williams reported that there was a committee meeting following the breakfast and that the door was still open for Lotterywest support for the event.
Incoming Membership Director Peter McEwen asked that members put on their thinking caps and give him names of two prospective members (active or associate) that his committee can follow-up.  He also mentioned that to join a Rotary club in Singapore the nomination fee was $2500 and the annual fee was $25000, so joining our club is a bargain!
Perth Makers' Market update from Chair Chris Whelan. The e-club and Waylan Bay scouts are set to provide the same amount of resource as previous events however due to our diminishing numbers AxR members will find themselves rostered for all four PMM planned for this year.  Any issues with this contact Chris.


Tim Inglis was wished a HAPPY BIRTHDAY for the 1st July.
The collection box was given a healthy boost with a story from a recent membership committee meeting at Peter and Dany McEwen's home.  Max Cunningham dropped a $20 note out of his pocket and Dany's dog ate the note.  Following a recovery process over a couple of days Peter presented the remains of the note to Max.  Max's happy story was that after trying at 3 banks to get his note replaced he was about to give up until he told the teller at his local Commonwealth Bank that he had been banking with them for 71 years.  The teller told him to wipe away his tears and that he would replace the $20 note.  Danny was fined for having a dog with expensive tastes!
Peter also donated his 'Happy Dollar' contributions, accumulated over the COVID 19 Zoom meetings, of a generous amount to the collection box.  This was mainly driven by the success of Brendan on MASTER CHEF.
Other contributors to the collection box -
  1. Our exchange student in Germany, Connor Ovens is leading the Footy Tipping .
  2. Barry's dog eating Margaret's block of chocolate wrapper and all.  Barry asking the question is it true you shouldn't give chocolate to dogs?
  3. Chris Whelan missing the Sundowner due to not listening/reading that it was on a Wednesday not the usual Thursday night.
  4. Members very pleased to have Ian join the meeting even though it was rumored he was on 'unofficial' morning release from hospital (not true according to Ian).  Ian also told the meeting that if you are standing close to him in a quiet room you will hear the clicking of his new heart valves. 
Australian Anti Ice Campaign (AAIC)
This year's District 9465 Conference was to be held at Rockingham from the 20th to 22nd March.  The conference committee put a huge effort 
"The Way Forward  2020-2021" documented endorsed
At our breakfast meeting on Tuesday 30th  June, Chris Whelan led the discussion on the modified Applecross Rotary 'The Way Forward'  document that was tabled for endorsement.
The original document was endorsed when Murray McKay was president in 2013/2014 and updated in 2016 when Chris Whelan was president.
Chris took the meeting through the document and highlighted the minor changes as follows:
  1. OUR VISION - no changes - endorsed
  2. THE CLUB'S VALUES - Chris highlighted the reference to diversity and flexible membership opportunities that will enable a wide range of people and groups to get involve with the club. - endorsed
  4. STATEGIC FRAMEWORKS - Chris commented as follows -
    • we can review the top end of 50 members as referred to under membership once we get close to this number.
    • minor change to reference to meeting times in that we are primarily a breakfast club  however have the flexibility to meet at other times as opportunities arise.
    • reference to using funds in a timely manner ensures the club does not accumulate the monies raised.
    • the addition under Community Service to recognise our major project 'One Health' and supporting AMR Aware.
Chris summarised by saying that the "value of the document  is as much to show to prospective members and  to any outsiders who are interested in Rotary, because it is the envelope within which we use to move forward".
The meeting endorsed the document that can be accessed by clicking here.
