President's  Jottings
Another successful Perth Makers Market providing valuable funds for our projects.  It was great to see our new members in Nik (above), Cindy, Masih and Brett helping out over the weekend.  Also the fantastic E-Club members who are very experienced in the donation collecting and parking duties.  We also had Erin Hegarty from MAMA Respond and some of her committee as well as our usual support from the Waylen Bay Sea Scouts.
Our new member Cindy Wiese took the opportunity to cast her professional eye over our premium positioned stall at the entrance to the markets. Cindy will provide some suggestions on what we could do to better promote Rotary and our projects as well as encourage the conversation to attract more people to join us.
I would be keen to  encourage other clubs including the provisional City of Melville Rotaract Club to work with us to give interested members of the public information on the flexible options to get involved with Rotary. 
At tomorrow's meeting new members Cindy Wiese and Brett Hammill will be formally inducted by President-elect and Membership Director Peter McEwen.  
Our program coordinator Gordon Dunbar is doing a superb job in organising our weekly speakers. 
Last meeting our speaker was Squadron Leader Ret'd (Armament Engineer) Paul Falconer-West.
Paul is a member of the RAAF Association and a Volunteer Guide at the Aviation Heritage Museum. He is also  the tour guide for the C-47 Dakoda, Lancaster and Spitfire. Paul retired from the RAAF in 2016 (compulsory age retirement) completing total RAAF service of 46.5 years. Paul's knowledge of the various military planes and operations past and present is amazing. Liz has arranged a guided tour of the RAAF Museum on Friday 18th June where we will continue with the entertaining and informative presentation from Paul.
This week's speaker is Dr Rick Fenny, 'Outback WA's' most famous vet.  Rick will be hosted at the meeting by his good friend PP Ian Fairnie.
When Rick was based in Roebourne the infamous Red Dog was a regular visitor for treatment as well as offering him a lift when their paths crossed in the Pilbara.  Looking forward to meeting and listening to Rick at tomorrow's meeting.

Rick Fenny is not your average veterinarian. For most, running a clinic, maybe conducting some research on the side, is more than enough to keep them busy. Dr Fenny would consider that a pre-breakfast project. “I just like to keep myself motivated, alert, on the ball—and happy. And not bogged down,” he says, in the understatement of the decade. The man admits he’s probably employed more vets than anyone —“certainly in WA, if not Australia”— with 400 full-time vets in a 40-year period, at last count, and about 1000 other non-vets. He has owned 15 separate practices, ran a locum service sending Australian vets to Britain and even had his own internal drug company. “It’s been quite an interesting journey,” he says. Trust is a big part of Dr Fenny’s DNA—both what he has for people and, of course, what the animals have for him: most famously, the Pilbara mining community’s kelpie mascot, Red Dog, the lone canine made famous in Louis de BernieĢ€res’s 2002 novel, and again in the eponymous film nine years later. Excerpt from “Red Dog’s vet” By Natasha Paulini, Vet Practice Magazine
