Would you believe, as I certainly don’t, that I can count my Membership for over half of the 50 Years that our great Club has been part of the Rotary world!
How time flys... and I am but one of many who can make a similar claim ... we tend to overlook the individual effort in favour of the Club contribution over the years.
 
What a fantastic evening for our 50th Celebration and Annual Changeover.. one of the best ever from my perspective.
 
Well organised, great value and setting, a bit different, exceptional comradeship, well supported by present and many returning past Members, a fabulous meal inspired and presented by Brendan Pang of  Dumplings fame, ... It all came together to make  a night to remember.
 
Special thanks are certainly due for organising to incoming Pres Peter, outgoing Pres Ray and Sec Chris, and of course, well supported by Liz and Lorri. Max was an excellent MC.
 
The 50th Centenary publication is well worth a read in terms of Club history and some key contributors.
 
Long may we continue to be relevant to the Applecross and broader community!
 
A special thank you to two wonderful contributors to our 50th year .. Ray, as President, and Chris, as Secretary. In a challenging year, your Leadership and support for the Club was outstanding.
 
Further, the work that Chris put into the past 10 Years of Fund Raising and Giving by AxR is a wonderful resume of just how relevant we are to our greater community.
It highlights the key contributions of the Jacaranda Festival, Perth Makers Markets and our Club Sponsors and helps ensure that Applecross Rotary stays true to the Rotary objectives.
Please make sure that you have a good look at these wonderful numbers!
 
We all wish our new President Peter and his team a great year for 2021/22!
