We are delighted to welcome two Margaret residents as new members of the club.
Sally Hayes led the induction of Gary and Michelle Miller into the club at the meeting on Monday night. We hope that they will both enjoy many years of fun and fellowship as club members.
We welcome Karen Tearney into the club. Karen has been associated with the club for several months through a contract she has for public relations and media. We welcomed Karen and the club is fortunate to attract such a high calibre member.
Whatever your reason, joining Rotary can help you achieve these goals, and so much more. See why these men and women are members of their local Rotary club. Watch this short video and learn more.
There will be a photo presentation of the 2013 trip with a couple of last years Alternative Leavers attending who'll be able to let you know how much they got out of their Timor experience and answer any questions.

The Wine Quiz
Each week a Margaret River winery donates two bottles of one of their classic wines.
One bottle forms the informal ‘blind tasting’ quiz whilst members are arriving at the start of the meeting. The quiz winner will win the second bottle of wine.
Monday nights wine was a 2012 Shiraz from 3 Oceans
Thanks to 3 Oceans Marketing Manager Gwen Goodrich for making their wine available.
I think the soft, fruit driven style of Shiraz of Margaret River and our neighbouring regions will continue to grow in popularity as the vines mature and people look for a softer more elegant style. Although this wine clearly needs a bit more time to soften and integrate, it is bursting full of flavour with that long finish, full mouth-feel and soft tannin that I love. I didn’t choose this wine for any reason other than I enjoyed it…but making the quiz harder for most of us is the fact that much of the fruit for this wine came from the Frankland River region…home to some wonderful Shiraz. At $26, this is a good buy. Knowing that the wine will improve over the next few years, I would score it at 92 points.
