Welcome to our meeting on Tuesday 15th October our guest speaker Tim Scarrott, Visiting Rotarian Leanne Knowler (Baldivis), our Rotary Youth Exchange Connor Ovens, and prospective members Elizabeth and Cecil Aaron.
The previous week Margaret and I had a very congenial meeting with DGE Michael and Helen Moore in Canberra.  Michael  is a former ACT Health Minister and International Public Health expert, and we spent several hours discussing AntiMicrobial Resistance. 
There is general agreement that the formation of a Rotary Action Group (RAG) is necessary to get AMR on the radar of Rotary International and thus globally.  The first requirement is to establish a steering group of Rotarians with nominal positions.
I recently presented to the Probus Club of Dawesville and received the following email from their guest speaker coordinator, Russell Chivers -
"Just a short note to thank you for your presentation to our club last Thursday.  It was very well received by our members and was extremely enlightening.
I am sure that every one got some real take home value and your contribution to this important issue was certainly on show.
Hopefully over time we can overcome the reluctance by Government to assist in reducing Anti-microbial resistance and your work will no doubt be well rewarded.
Thank you for your valuable time".
Tim was a foundation member of Perth-based Save African Rhino Foundation when it was formed 32 years ago.  SARF has raised over $11m since then for equipment to interrupt the poaching of white and black rhinos, particularly in Zimbabwe.
Tim is a paramedic, and a qualified instructor in CPR, and each time he visits Zimbabwe with SARF he also trains locals in CPR; 513 last year alone.  He also distributes medical supplies that have been discarded in Perth, often because of they are beyond their use by date.  Tim has tried very hard but still cannot understand how a sterilised bandage can have a use by date.
Logan Duncan-Smith reported on the Melville City Rotaract BBQ last Sunday afternoon.  Seems four people have signed up to lead the formation of the new Rotaract Club, which is a joint venture with Booragoon and Attadale Rotary Clubs.  Logan also found some interest for nomination to the next RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Award) Camp which is running mid January.
Liz Palmer will advise those going to Bunbury where the bus will be leaving from on Wednesday next week.
Ray Philp reported on fundraising for the Greenbatch Education Centre, and the grant application to Ben Morton’s office for funds to supply wheelie bins to collect recyclable bottles (plastic and glass) at all the Primary Schools in the City of Melville.
Clive Pearson urged members to identify excellent customer service and nominate that person for a Pride of Workmanship Award.
Lorri Brazier advised that Lesley Combes is still very ill and that members will be advised when she is well enough to receive visitors, perhaps when she transfers to Fiona Stanley Hospital for rehab.
Our RYE student Connor gave members an update of his plans. He will be getting his blazer towards the end of November and is giving Applecross members his talk on 17 December that he will be giving (in German eventually) during his time abroad
in the first half of 2020.  He leaves for Europe on 17 January.  We’ll be seeing a lot more of Connor after he finishes his last 7 exams at school and his TEE.  He is applying for Physiotherapy at Curtin for 2021.
John Kelly announced that 43 years ago today, Ray Wales joined Applecross Rotary.  Members present responded with applause.

Liz Palmer had a lovely time at the Bush Races, while Lorri Brazier loved seeing Ride Like a Girl.
President Barry has a dog again after an absence of 18 years.
Visiting Rotarian Leanne and Guest Speaker Tim Scarrott showed their happiness on being at our meeting.
