What's New

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.

October 11th was World Mental Health Day. The club raised funds by wearing hats at this weeks Rotary meeting and distributing collection boxes around town last week to raise awareness and funds for Australian Rotary Health Hat Day. Businesses were asked to don hats for the day. Over $300 was raised. Since 1985 Australian Rotary Health has allocated more than $33 million to health initiatives and scholarships.
