The Rotary Club of Margaret River
 
What's New

In 2016-17, Rotary Foundation turns 100. That’s a century of Rotary members changing lives and improving communities all over the world. And that’s definitely something worth celebrating.

Through Foundation, Rotary members have supported thousands of projects to provide clean water, fight disease, promote peace, provide basic education, and grow local economies. We’ve also been a leader in the fight to eradicate polio worldwide.

 
 
 
Ongoing maintenance in Rotary Park this week. Cleaning and repainting the concrete tables and benches in addition to starting the repaint of Kate. Further painting this coming Tuesday morning (14th February). Sorry kids Kate might be closed off for a couple of hours whilst the paint dries.

Alternative Leavers Week is a project in partnership with villages in Timor Leste; a team of school leavers visits East Timor to meet the people, learn about life and work on community development activities. This project aims to provide support for the Timorese people and an understanding of life in a neighbouring country like Timor for the Margaret River students.

New member Sylvia Chandler  was warmly welcomed into membership of the Rotary Club of Margaret River this week. The 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 Sylvia.

This Saturday (Nov 5th) members of the club will be loading up 100 chairs and desks from the school and transporting them to Kent Street, Perth as part of the Friends of the Timor Container Project run by the Rotary Club of Hillarys. The desks and chairs along with other donations such as computers and teaching equipment will be packed into sea containers for shipment to East Timor.

The Harvey Bike Riders visited Margaret River last Friday afternoon on their fund raising journey for Childrens Leukaemia & Cancer Foundation.  For this now annual event the club always provides afternoon tea when the riders arrive in town. The Hon Barry House MLC also presented the riders with a cheque for $1,000 on behalf of the Club.  The riders had cycled from Mandurah and were continuing onto Augusta in this big fund raising effort.  9 cyclists were taking part this time, and both the cyclist and support crew were well catered for.

Update August '16
The latest palning meeting attracted 31 attendees and there are now 18 new names on the register following this second meeting.
Membership fees have been set at $30 until the shed opens with 28 signed up. Currently estimating 18 months until the Shed opening.

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
