What's New

New members Margaret Ruello and Ley Dhalluin were warmly welcomed into membership of the Rotary Club of Margaret River this week. Their induction reminded us that Rotary is the world’s original service organisation with a concept for service above self. We look forward to on-going fellowship with Ley and Marg.

 

 
The club has donated $2,500 to Interplast. Interplast sends teams of volunteer plastic and reconstructive surgeons, anaesthetists, nurses and allied health professionals to provide life-changing surgery and medical training in 17 countries across the Asia Pacific region. In partnership with local organisations, including hospitals, universities and local NGOs their mission is to ‘repair bodies and rebuild lives’. https://www.interplast.org.au/
 
 
Rotary Margaret River were asked to help in remodelling a garden at a house in town where three disabled people live with their carers.
Club members organised a working party to move a fence, enlarge an enclosed garden area and relocate two garden beds.
 
 
Following a three week construction period the redeveloped South Bank dual purpose trail is now open.
 
Update May '16
The new drainage for the trail has now been completed.
 
Running along side the Margaret River from the Old Settlement to Barrett Street Weir the new trail will provide walkers and cyclists with an interesting and scenic circular walk along the banks of the river.
 
 
Low awareness and lack of early detection means that bowel cancer continues to have an unnecessarily high death rate. Many of the 4,000 bowel cancer deaths in Australia each year are preventable. Caught early, 90% of cases can be successfully treated – but fewer than 40% are detected early. Rotary is providing test kits during May for just $15
 
 
Proposed Mens Shed in Margaret River
 
Update May '16
The first steering committee meeting for the Mens Shed has been held. Further meetings will be held every second Tuesday.

The Rotary Club of Margaret river is interested in developing a Men’s Shed in Margaret river. To that end a public meeting will be held in Council Chambers @ the Augusta/Margaret River Shire offices, 41 Wallcliffe Road Margaret River on Monday 18th April 2016 from 6-00pm to 7-00pm.
 
 

Rotary Margaret River were 'hands on' as the Rotary Club of Pinjarra organised a working weekend to support farmers in the area affected by the recent fires. Working on a 340 acre property where nearly every piece of fencing was destroyed beyond repair a group of 9 volunteers cleared over 5km of damaged fences stacking wire for removal and leaving the fence lines cleared ready for replacement work to begin.

Rotary is.....
In an increasingly complex world, Rotary maintains a simple philosophy – make friends in your own community and throughout the world.
 
Rotary is fun – a lot of fun. Every Rotary club and district arranges activities and events that provide a welcome distraction to a hectic business life.
 
Through Rotary, service to local and overseas communities is well organised and rewarding. If you like helping others, here is your chance to do something worthwhile and make a real difference
