Over the past couple of years the Rotary Club of North Perth has been providing support to a Perth Rotary Project called Path of Hope.
 
Path of Hope is an approach that mobilises the organisational capacity of Rotarians to support the Salvation Army, agencies and services that provide safety and empowerment to women and their children escaping Family and Domestic Violence.
 
The club initially did a fundraising event for Path of Hope called “Opera at Twilight” and have since also offered them sites at their annual Hyde Park Fair for them to use to promote what Path of Hope is all about.
Last year the club supported their annual Christmas Gift appeal purchasing Christmas gifts for the victims of Family Domestic Violence. Club members were approached to do it again this year. Without hesitation, the club decided to continue that support for this year's Christmas Gift appeal.
With the aid of a District grant, they had $1500 to spend. The photo above shows the three club members who took time out to purchase the gifts and then drop them at a collection point in Claremont. The Rotarians involved are Lorraine Elliott, Mason Burton and Bruno Fic.

Stirling Farmers Market Celebrates Ten Years
 
Recently the Rotary Club of Karrinyup celebrated ten fabulous years of the Stirling Farmers Market. As well as being a reliable source of income for all our many charity projects, this event has established our club as a visual presence in the local community in the City of Stirling. Market patrons continue to praise the wonderful friendly atmosphere, which prevails each Sunday morning at the market and club members on duty each week are responsible for perpetuating this.
 
The birthday celebration had a wonderful festive atmosphere with bunting on the stalls and lots of free entertainment for all, including pony rides for the children, face painting, eco fairies and of course cake for everyone!
 
Thanks go also to our wonderful stall holders but most especially to Market Manager Heather Leaney and her market team, who do so much behind the scenes, for organising a wonderful day.
 
We also recognise the years of hard work by inaugural Market Manager Peter Polain and his foresight in seeking to establish the market all those years ago.
 
Check out all the photos of this happy occasion on the link to Our Tenth Birthday album on the Stirling Farmers Market Facebook page. Happy Birthday to us!

Thank you to those who attended the launch of the 2021 ‘Give a Feed Campaign’.  It was an enjoyable event, and good to hear Andrew Wilkinson, Aaron Pitt and Wayne Smith speak with considerable passion about the need to support those people in our community who go hungry.  They need and deserve our support.
 
Please see above, the official Flyer for this year’s campaign.  As well as purchasing hampers yourselves ($30 ea), please consider purchasing them as Christmas presents, and circulating the Flyer to family and friends so they can contribute.  Those planning to donate can visit https://www.giveafeed.com.au/ and the process is very easy!
 
Last year, Give a Feed raised over $75,000 for over 3,000 hampers and, Don Burnside, President of RC of Heirisson is sure we can do better this year!

2022 District 9455 Conference Art Competition for Link Schools
 
Is your Rotary link school participating in the 2022 District 9455 Conference Art Competition?
The art competition is taking place NOW in Term 4. Schools have until the end of their school year to complete the artwork.
 
What format will the competition take?
The artwork will be in the form of an A2 poster. Students are invited to investigate a West Australia Aboriginal artist that they like and present an informative poster about the artist. Please have a look at the specifications in the Rotary District 9455 Art competition – schools’ letter that came attached to an email to club presidents back in August or see below.
 
Who is the competition for and who decides who will enter?
The poster competition is for art students in Years 7 to 10. Schools will decide how many students will participate and, if possible, build this into their program for Term 4 or it can be done as a private activity at home.
 
How much will it cost for your link school to enter the competition?
Cost to the Rotary Club = $100. If you have more than one link school the fee will be discounted.
Please look at the details provided in the Rotary District 9455 Art Competition – Letter to Rotary Clubs which was emailed to club presidents back in August or see below.
 
There are some great prizes on offer including art materials and the opportunity to participate in a masterclass with an established artist. Please get behind this reconciliation initiative.
