Greetings to all!
You asked, we have listened and are delivering
At the recent Club Assembly and strategy session held on 30th September we as a club identified challenges as well as opportunities to invigorate the club, our projects and meetings.
Members asked for more information from the board – this happened at the Friday meeting on 18/11/22 with Rotarians sharing about the club projects – current and proposed.
Members provided feedback about needing to address the days, times and regularity of meetings – the Club Survey will be sent out shortly – please watch out for it in your email inbox and respond.
Decisions and recommendations will be made by the board based on the survey results.
Polio Plus Dinner with Crawley Rotary Club
Members and friends of Perth Rotary Club in collaboration with Crawley Rotary Club enjoyed fellowship and a wonderful meal at the UWA club on 27th of October to celebrate the input and impact of Rotary International in regards to eradicating polio around the world. More than $2000 was raised. Special thanks to donors.
A panel of speakers included Ineke Oliver, District Governor of District 9455, together with key people from the Post Polio Network of WA- Ross O’Neil (Como Rotary Club), Ian Holding and Jenni Jones.
Each of these amazing people, yes including DG Ineke Oliver, shared their story and journey through life as a survivor of polio. They shared candid stories of how having polio has affected their lives, and how they have not let polio slow them down. They also shared about how their long term health and wellbeing has been affected by having polio as children.
This was a moving experience for all concerned.
I offer my special thanks to Sam Hardie (President) and Leah Granucci (Past President) from Crawley Rotary Club for their dedication and support to organise and run the event – Bravo!
