Thank you Lorri for a wonderful Morning Tea last Saturday for our Fellowship event for June.
Thank you to the Club members who helped install 320 paintings for the Annual Rotary Art Show at Garden City Sunday evening
Thank you Gordon Dunbar for a great presentation about his circumnavigation of Tasmania
No breakfast meeting next week, because of the Changeover Dinner that evening 6.30pm for 7.00pm at Nic and Kola’s
BIG breakfast meeting to start Barry’s year on Tuesday 2 July with a focus on Perth homeless and hungry: Stitches of Hope and Swan Districts Rotarians; community donors of sleeping bags; Street Connect who distribute the sleeping bags; FoodbankWA raising money to feed the homeless this winter


  • First day sales at the Rotary Art Show yesterday: 6 paintings sold
  • John Hosking looking for volunteers for evening shifts this coming Friday: 5-7pm and 7-9pm please call him on 0437 077 714


  • John Hosking took home the chocolates for winning the door prize
  • Dockers fans celebrated their win
Barry Mendelawitz celebrated AMR being the lead story in yesterday’s national newspaper as well as the new security issue related to Behaviour Awareness.
Kenn Williams and Ray Philp bought the silver teapot for $100 meaning a little over $410 will go to an Applecross Rotary charity they nominate.  This also means we have collected $754.80 in loose change from the Silver teapot this Rotary year, plus the donations to decide which charity will be supported!

Peter also bought the ‘foreign’ coin collection and promptly donated the bag of coins to be auctioned off again at the Changeover Dinner
Following Matthew Flinders
Our own Gordon Dunbar took us on his recent odyssey circumnavigating Tasmania on the local yacht “Napea”, as part of an annual flotilla of boats organised by the Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania and the Royal Geelong Yacht Club.
Abel Tasman found Tasmania in November 1642 on a voyage from Batavia, which he named Van Dieman’s land in honour of the Governor General of the Dutch East Indies Company.  He was searching for the Great Southern Land, which he sailed around without finding it!
However the first to sail around Tasmania was Matthew Flinders in 1789-99.  It became a separate colony to New South Wales in 1825 and was renamed Tasmania in 1856.  That’s enough history for now!
Suffice to say Di and Gordon had a lovely time on their trip, judging by the photos Gordon showed us.  And here’s his map showing all the places they stopped for refreshments, way beyond what Abel Tasman or Matthew Flinders enjoyed!

Message from the district governor

As the Rotary year draws to a close and the change of guard prepares for the new year, I would like 
to thank members for their support throughout the year.  It has been an enjoyable and rewarding 
journey as I learnt about Club’s unique projects and formed invaluable friendships.  Of course, the 
overwhelming generosity shown in my decision to shave my head to support the End Polio 
campaign has been the most remarkable, and I cannot thank you enough for your generosity.  This 
may be a timely reminder if your Club made a pledge to Polio throughout the year to ensure it is 
made as soon as possible.  I would like to announce the final figure at the District Change over.  
During my Club visits, I encouraged you to aim for a Rotary Citation.  It is now time to update your 
Clubs’ achievements to guarantee meeting the 30 June deadline.   Do not hesitate to seek 
assistance from your Assistant Governor. 
If your Club is in the position of having surplus funds at the end of the financial year, and would like 
to contribute to a worthwhile cause, there are a number to consider: ShelterBox, ROMAC, 
Australian Rotary Health and The Rotary Foundation are just a couple to bear in mind.  All worthy 
recipients and I’m sure would greatly appreciate your donation. I trust you will consider attending the District change over on 29th June at Melville Glades Golf Club 
– just to make sure I hand over the reigns to DGE Wayne Milnes and Suzanne. 
If you are not able to attend, I thank you again for your support during the year and trust our theme 
of “Be The Inspiration” indeed inspired you in some way. 
Thanks to all those who have and those on the roster that will help.
The set up went relatively smoothly and sales on Monday were about normal. We are very pleased with the quality and display of the 320 paintings.
The roster for Wednesday is filled. We need help from 5 – 7pm and from 7 – 9pm on Friday and Sunday evening to take down the panels and return them to the Mens Shed in Hilton Park. 
Please let us know when you can help.
Please also suggest that your family and friends also visit the Art Show.
