On Tuesday I was pleased to reinforce the message that members attended the meeting and had not shelled out for paid parking. Although still on the drawing board it may represent a win for people power. We need to make sure we are involved in any “community consultation” that occurs on the matter.
I reiterated the need for all members to be on at least one committee of the club, and this should be in place by the end of the month. Particularly those members who find it difficult to attend meetings regularly should play an active role in their committee.
Members will be interested to know that Ian Fairnie, Prof John Edwards and I met with MHR Ben Morton on Tuesday to brief him on our One Health AMR focus and suggest he meet with PP Dr Mark Schipp, Chief Veterinarian of Australia to be made even more aware of our hopes for Rotary action in this arena.
I spoke to Mal Taylor about Margaret’s recent cardiac incident. I think it is worth mentioning not only how well she is doing but also Mal’s unstinting praise for the level of care she received at Fiona Stanley Hospital.

MAX continued his saga talking about air freighting goats and sheep to Malaysia
Impress your friends: A Boeing747 can take 2,500 goats or sheep on a 5 hour trip from Perth to KL.  This trade has turned feral goats (“worthless vermin”) into being valued in the stock yards on a station at $50/head.
The sheep preferred are Damara rams (fat tails originally from Africa/Middle East) which shed their hairy wool every year so don’t need shearing.
The whole process is very carefully monitored by government vets, including regular checks in flight.  The specially made wooden crates used to transport the animals in the plane are destroyed by the Malaysian authorities, so they cannot be reused.
