I hope all members had a wonderful Easter with their families and friends.
Speaking of Easter, the Rotary family and volunteers were hard at work on Sunday at Perth Makers Market.
Magnificent weather brought out a huge crowd, and we were kept busy all day with our parking duties. A special thank you to all our Club members who assisted, ably supported by family and friends, and members of E-Club and Attadale Rotary.

Mount Henry Bridge Reserve playspace
The following was in the eNews Melville Matters - Thursday, 14 April and promotes our benefactor project.
We want to know what you prefer for the upcoming upgrade of the Mount Henry Bridge playspace:
  • A cosmetic refresh of the existing playground and the addition of a flying fox, or;
  • A completely new playground
An intergenerational balance and dexterity space, waterplay element (funded by Applecross Rotary), outdoor fitness equipment and a shade sail are also proposed to be included in the upgrade.
This upgrade form part of our Playground Renewal Program, which aims to improve degraded and under-utilised park spaces in the City.

Get ready for World Immunization Week
Join with Rotary to promote the power of vaccines to protect children and save lives
During World Immunization Week, 24-30 April, let’s advocate for polio eradication and the importance of vaccines to the health and well-being of our communities.

Vaccines are one of the greatest advances of modern medicine. They’re safe, effective, and save millions of lives each year. Our progress in the fight to end polio is proof that vaccines work.

The Global Polio Eradication Initiative estimates that the polio vaccine has saved more than 20 million children around the world from paralysis. We need to continue vaccinating children against polio, because as long as the poliovirus circulates anywhere, it is a threat everywhere.

Here’s how you can support Rotary’s efforts during World Immunization Week:
  • Use the World Immunization Week Toolkit for graphics and sample posts to share on social media with the hashtags #EndPolio and #VaccinesWork.  
  • Donate to PolioPlus to help Rotary and our partners deliver polio vaccines to vulnerable children. Or start an online fundraiser using Raise for Rotary and share it with your friends, colleagues, and family members. All contributions will be matched 2-to-1 by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
