However, in Perth Rotary the situation is exactly the opposite. Of course we have our ZOOM IN meetings but this is just the easiest to be seen.

From one side we have the current flow of activities that take place and on the other side we have the planning of the next year’s strategy and action plan that are thoroughly discussed among the new Board.

Easter Message

Seeing the point of Easter is like seeing the point of a joke.

Vale | Felix Pinczuk

Vale Felix Pinczuk. 

(Husband of Judith Pinczuk)

Members of Perth Rotary between 1981 and 1999 would remember Felix, who was Director of Finance at the Water Corporation until 1966. Felix attended Perth Rotary as ‘make-ups’ for Holdfast Bay in South Australia to the end of June. (Holdfast Bay had a perfect membership attendance for the 1980/81 year and Felix promised to ensure that they would not lose this through him.)  In July 1981 he became a member of the Rotary Club of Perth.  Averse to admitting to failing eyesight Felix retired from Rotary in 1991.

Invitation to ‘Walk Alongside’ 
Reflections Mesothelioma Support Network began over 6 years ago when our founder, Barry Knowles, along with a few fellow sufferers, formed a community of people who understood, only too well, this terminal, asbestos-related cancer. Appreciating the value of a shared journey – a safe place where people could connect, share and ‘walk alongside’ one another – they met monthly in homes and offered one-on-one support as needed. The group has developed over the years providing care and support to many sufferers and their loved ones.
