Following contact with the City of Melville I am pleased to report there is a proposal for a Men's shed in Bull Creek.  We will see how we can get involved when plans are finalised.
Thankyou to Hamish and Chris for hosting the July Sundowner.  As usual it was enjoyed by the members and partners who could attend. Our Sundowners are an excellent social event to get to know each other better.  The Sundowners are usually held on the last Thursday of the moth at a member's residence.  If you would like to host a future event let Liz Palmer know.
A big thankyou to all the members who supported the National Tree Day at Booragoon Lake. Our sausage sizzle was enjoyed by all.

Director Notes for 30 July

Clive Pearson declared the Tree Planting morning a success.
Clive also asked for nominations for Pride of Workmanship Awards.
Ray Philp gave early notice of the trip to join the Bunbury Leschenault Club for its regular Wednesday lunchtime meeting at the Dolphin Discovery Centre, in late October.  Some members and partners might want to come on a bus to enjoy the scenery, and spend sometime at the Bunbury Farmers’ Market after lunch before heading back to Perth.
Ian Fairnie drew member’s attention to the letter tabled about Associate Membership, and asked that Members use this opportunity to invite family and friends to take the opportunity presented. He said there were four people who have already indicated they would like to do this, two former members, and two others who often attend meetings and fellowship events.
Not sure what happened with the coin tosser (John Hosking) but the replay showed that guest speaker Richard Seale won the prize, yet Hamish Turner took home the Wolf Blass!
Birthdays for Ray Philp and Margaret Taylor, and the anniversary of Helen Jones’ induction into Rotary somewhere.
Doug Telfer is hoping to be test driving his new cardiac pacemaker next week, while Mal Taylor expressed concern that Doug might end up hyperactive, and Max Cunnington’s very proud of his son’s recognition by the Cattle Council.  Chris Whelan applauded John Kelly’s skill with digging holes at the tree planting morning.
Guest Speaker - Richard Seale


Richard taught film production at Curtin University for 8 years before deciding to leave the world of university politics behind and start his own business.
Richard believes everyone has a fascinating story waiting to be told.  The example he showed us was a 91-year-old woman, a member of the “Silent Generation”, born between 1930 and 1945.  Those people who came here, arrived by ship and for various reasons including cost, never expected they would ever go back. So they HAD to start a new life.
Richard worked hard to set the scene for her story, shooting suburban backgrounds, accessing film from various library sources, etc.
Film is now very accessible, affordable, condenses time, and engages multiple senses.
Richard’s “Golden Rules” for telling a story on film are:
  • Don’t try and include everything
  • It will take you on a journey
  • All stories need a point (and a villain!)
  • You are engaged, and you can celebrate.
There was a great deal of interest in what Richard had to say, and one suggestion was to record the history of the Jacaranda Festival.
