Rotary Club of Northbridge memberas celebrating Hat Day for Australian Rotary Health. The club sent ARH a cheque for $147.70, funds raised on the day.

On Sunday 9th October 2022 Wanneroo Rotary Club along with the Rotary Clubs of Mindarie, Belmont and Kalamunda joined forces for two massive sausages sizzles to celebrate the opening of the new Airport Rail Line in Perth. The idea was originally floated by one of Wanneroo’s members who has been working on the project for 8 years. 
 
The logistics of the day were enormous.  7000 sausages and buns, 2 pallets of water, 1 pallet of assorted soft drinks, 200 kilos of sliced onions, a refrigerated truck to carry it all, two portable cool rooms to keep everything cool, 6 barbecues and approximately 60 Rotarians to make it all happen on the day. 
 
There were two sites, High Wycombe and Redcliffe.  All goods were paid for by the Airport Link Project and the donation will be split among the four clubs. 
 
There will also be a donation made to the Wanneroo Christmas Day Lunch that both Mindarie and Wanneroo are organising. 
 
This was a great collaboration between the clubs and a financial benefit to all. 
 
WELL DONE everyone.

Rotary Clubs as Safe Spaces
(Stacie Mei Laccohee-Duffield)

Is your Rotary/Rotaract club really inclusive? Does that include the LGBTIQA+ community?   
Join in on 18 October to find out more about making your Rotary club a safe space for the LGBTQA+ community.  
Stacie Mei Laccohee-Duffield is a member of the Rotary club of Ellenbrook. Stacie Mei is a Project Manager with North Metropolitan Health Services in the Youth Mental Health Team, and is a Senior Project Officer, Deputy Chair of the Board at Gender Recognition in Ageing (GRAI) and a board member for the Rotary LGBT+ Fellowship.  
Stacie Mei is passionate about her community and helping young people not live the journey she has had. With 58.2% of LGBTQA+ young people aged 14 to 21 having seriously considered attempting suicide in the past 12 months in Australia, Stacie Mei envisions Rotary as part of the solution.

Perhaps you have been considering adding an Acknowledgement of Country to your meeting procedures but you are not sure how to proceed or perhaps not all members are supportive of the idea. Perhaps your club wants to do a project with an Aboriginal Community but needs some resources to help with the process. Perhaps members would like to be better informed about the Uluru Statement from the Heart, the Voice to parliament, a future Makarrata (truth telling) or a Treaty with Aboriginal people. No matter at which point your club is along the cultural awareness spectrum, Ros Marshall, Chair of the Rotary D9455 Aboriginal Reference Group (ARG) is available to talk to you.
 
If you would like to find out more about the ARG before planning to invite Ros to speak to the club, have a look at our excellent website at www.rotaryarg.org.au. The website contains a wealth of information about past successful Rotary projects from across the state. It also provides a manual for respectful engagement with the Aboriginal community and huge range of other resources to raise cultural awareness.
 
Why not invite Ros to be a guest speaker at your club? Presentations are tailormade to suit your club’s specific requirements.
 
PH: Ros Marshall on 0413221253 or email: rosslyn.marshall@gmail.com to book.
