President's Notes
member photo
President Logan is finally out of hospital as of last Tuesday and is looking forward to hosting DG Ric at tomorrows breakfast meeting. 
Last weeks meeting was chaired by IPP Peter McEwen and our guest speaker was Bruce Stuart who was hosted by Michael Smith. 
Bruce is one of six part time chaplains who work at the Acacia Prison.  Bruce explained that they are "in the system but not part of the system".  This allows them to provide pastoral care for the inmates, respecting their privacy unless harm would be caused. They are there for prisoners, their families and staff, and cover all belief systems.  
They also assist people when they are leaving prison to connect with organisations that can assist with accommodation, drug programs etc.
Bruce said his job is very emotional and cognitively draining, however believes he has been preparing all of his life for the job that he gets a great deal of  satisfaction making a difference to people's lives.
Another very informative, interesting and entertaining speaker that is another benefit from being a member of Rotary.

Update on our Insurance.
I have received the FINAL WORD on the Comprehensive Insurance on our ‘ on the road’ assets involved in an accident or damage incident.
* Excess Standard $500 if involved in a Rotary Project, whether Applecross or another Rotary Club. Similar if driven by a Rotary member for private use. Ute, trailer or BBQ
* If a trailer is involved but not towed by our Ute, then the towing vehicle insurance is responsible for the damage. Essential that the towing vehicle has confirmed Comprehensive insurance.
* If the Ute is loaned out to a NON ROTARY Member, then the excess is $1,000.
* In the event of a THEFT Incident, then the excess is an additional $500 
We will ensure that these details are prominently displayed in the Ute, in particular, and highlighted in our ‘use of vehicle’ sign off agreement to be completed prior to any non  AxR project arrangements.

News from Melville Cockburn Chamber of Commerce (MCCC)
Applecross Rotary along with the Rotary Club of Cockburn are proud members of the MCCC.
This is very much part of our membership growth strategy as an opportunity to work closely with our local business community for the mutual benefit of both parties.  From Rotary's perspective we rely on the support of our local businesses for our many projects. We are able to use the MCCC communications and member activities such as the monthly 'business after hours' to promote what Rotary is about and the benefits of joining or partnering with Rotary.
In this month's 'news from the chamber' it is pleasing to see our local business partner ' Market Life' welcomed as a new MCCC member.
