Changeover 2018-19

Club members enjoyed a wonderful Changeover Dinner last  Sunday at Hillarys Yacht Club.  We were fortunate that nearly all members could attend and we accepted with regret apologies from only Harry Nesbitt & Betty, Barrie Heald & Cath and Chris Ford & Julie.

We acknowledged a number of special guests, including

Immediate Past President Laurie was thanked and farewelled with an hilarious and insightful roast from Master Roaster Geoff Ross- a "Smartypants" quiz!  Needless to say, Laurie got all (I think) of the semi-serious questions right, and none of the comical ones!

It was then my pleasure to introduce our Team leaders  to guide us on our 2018-19 journey "Be the Inspiration":

Mr Tony Parker, President
Mr Byron Williamson, President Elect
PP Mr Barrie Heald, Secretary
PP Mr Michael Lee, Treasurer
Ms Vicky Rowe, Director Club Service
PP Ms Jane O'Leary, Director Fund Raising and Bulletin Editor
PP Mr John Boxall, Director Community Service and Rotary Foundation
PP Mr Harry Nesbitt, International
Imm PP Dr Laurie Glossop,

Our Plan for 2018-19:

Together, we will:

  • Share the benefits of Rotary with 5 new members- networking & service.
  • Meet the expectations of membership of our members.
  • Maintain a good meeting and Speaker program and regular social Events
  • Follow through on Visioning and Strategic Plan .
  • Maintain partnerships with our projects (Balga SHS, Perth Motorplex, EarlyAct at Rosalie PS, Shenton College).
  • Continue working with other Rotary Clubs in our Zone.
  • Continue to support local programs like RYPEN, NYSF, YO!FEST, Dismantle, FASD, Aboriginal Working Group etc.
  • Support RI objectives- End Polio,  Rotary Foundation, Australian Rotary Health
  • Raise more funds than last year, particularly  through our Motorplex collections and our High Tea for Humanity
  • Attempt to meet criteria for Presidential Citation
  • Help Byron with his succession plan.
  • Be the Inspiration!

Young minds matter... Australian Rotary Health would love you to join us at his year’s Mental Illness Forum and networking cocktail party to thank our Rotary Clubs and donors for their support, and allow researchers and clinicians to network and discover more about ARH research grants.

Every year 1 in 5 Australians suffer a mental illness, with suicide being the biggest killer of young Australians. Through research, we hope to change these figures.

Our key note speaker Associate Professor David Lawrence (Principal research fellow in the Graduate School of Education, UWA) says mental disorders are among the most common and disabling health conditions affecting children and adolescence today.

“Young Minds Matter" surveyed over 6,000 families with children aged 4-17 years around Australia. We examine how mental disorders impact children’s development and learning, and what types of help children need, and receive,” Associate Professor David Lawrence said.

You can help continue the conversation about mental health by attending the Lift the Lid on Mental Illness: Young Minds Matter forum. Those who attended last year found the event inspiring, and we hope that you will encourage other Rotary members to attend, with you, this year. Those who could not attend last year missed a great event, and we hope that you will attend this year.
