Hope everyone that was lucky enough to go on the Kalgoorlie trip had a wonderful time. Certainly looked that way from all the images that have been shared! And by all accounts everyone enjoyed themselves.
Those of us that didnt go, had a busy week. We had a informal meeting Tuesday with a great turn out and brainstormed so really good ideas to review in the coming weeks.
MCCC hosted a great night at the City of Melville, where the City went through their environmental impact plans to help reduce the carbon footprint of the City by 2030.
I spoke with some of the board members of the MCCC, they have kindly promoted our Comedy For Charity night through their members.  Unfortunately the event has been postponed due to insufficient numbers at this stage to proceed.
We also have some plans underway to start promoting some of our awards through MCCC which is quite exciting.
Looking forward to tomorrow's meeting with our guest speaker Kelly Keall from Anglicare talking about 'Creating Hopeful Futures'.

The whistle blows, and away we head East!
From an early start last Tuesday morning with a 7.10am departure from the East Perth rail terminal; the 7 plus hour Prospector train journey; then the wonderful itinerary of Kalgoorlie visits and activities; to the return home. What an adventure for those able to attend! Lots of great memories and put together by our own Liz and Max… thank you.
Tuesday evening:   Some Rotary camaraderie!
On our first evening we attended the Boulder Rotary Club vocational meeting at the local manufacturer of their sparkling and brand-new BBQ trailer. 
A short walk from our Motel, 8 Applecross Rotary members joined with about 20 from the local RC, and shared Rotary stories, a bbq meal and plenty of drinkies with their hospitality. KalBoulder RC raised over $250k for their community last year, with $165k, a new record, for their highly successful Radio Auction ‘super’ event! Certainly they have some VERY energetic community minded younger business-oriented members who ‘make things happen’ and that certainly includes working with their business community for generous support. They are truly committed to the needy requirements of their hometown locale.
It seems obvious that both Applecross Rotary and Kalgoorlie Boulder could, and should, share their ideas on both project management and development... we really have so much in common!
One of the projects that we could assist with is their 'GRAB & GO BAG'.  In partnership with their local Flying Doctors, they provide a bag for passengers with basic items including an EFTPOS voucher for people who have to leave home at short notice. The project is driven by Club Service Director Aiden Luke who explained the project to our group.
For further discussion.
That BBQ Trailer.
Two large slide in/out gas hot plates, heaps of storage, plenty of high advertising space, and complete with an enormous ‘esky’, no doubt well suited to the known thirst of the region!
It is planned to get plenty of use at their local community and project level, and certainly can turn out volume meals and drinks, with minimal manning requirements for its capacity.
Friday night Sundowner.
 We arranged for a final get-together Sundowner with the 2 local Clubs at a local Hotel and this was a fitting end to a great trip to our Far East Rotary cousins. Then on home again!



It is with disappointment that the organising committee has been forced to postpone the Comedy for Charity shows.  The current spread of COVID along with the very wintery weather, seem to be the main reasons that there have been insufficient bookings to make the fundraising event a success. Tickets already purchased will attract a full refund less the Trybooking booking fee of $0.75/ticket and refunds will return to your account within 5-10 business days.
The organising committee looks forward to advising everyone when the event will be rescheduled. 

The following was received from Kim Giddens MLA Member for Bateman, requesting our assistance for the following very worthwhile project.
Since 2020 Senator Glenn Sterle has been running the Waste to Wages program, in partnership with East Kimberley Job Pathways (EKJP), an organisation in Kununurra that provides training and employment throughout the East Kimberley.

Waste to Wages trains and employs Aboriginal youth to collect and repair recyclable items for their store named “Revive”. All money raised from selling repaired items at the store go directly back into training local Indigenous people and providing meaningful employment. Senator Sterle is now calling for donations to support the 2022 Waste to Wages program, which will see a convoy depart Perth for Kununurra in late August. If you have any pre-loved furniture you would like to donate to support this wonderful project, we want to hear from you! 

The donation centre is on Malland street in Myaree, please contact my office on 9316 1377 or to organise drop off. 

This is a unique opportunity to attend a Rotary International Convention.  As Chris Whelan pointed out the "RI convention comes to Australia once in an adult life". The event runs from the 27th of May to 30th May 2023. Chris has shared his plans based on arriving 26 May and departing 30 May as follows:
Costs?…(no liability):
  • Registration: $690.
  • Air fares at present $ 680 return
  • Accommodation… up to you
  • Snacks included at lunch. Other meals on your own account. 
  • Thousands of new friends to enjoy. Inspiration at every corner.
  • For any of you who are not aware; this is a great event.

Just do it!

And Ian Fairnie also added "Helen and I attended the RI Convention in Bangkok in 2012 and it was one of the best experiences we have had (still is) so I personally recommend it".

The promotional landscape is changing rapidly, get up to speed now, not just to help promote Applecross Rotary but your business and other organisations you help will benefit.
This will be an enjoyable afternoon where we will learn from each other as well as from others who do this very well.
Come along if you have something to learn, something to share or a mix of the two!
It is all on Zoom, to ensure you can attend in the comfort of your own home and be ‘covid-safe’.  You are also welcome to get together with others and join in as a group. We will be finishing with a BYO sundowner. 
This is the first of our Adventure series this year. We are very excited to get started! See you there!
3:00pm - 6:00pm Sunday 28 August 2022
