Last Friday, we all woke to the news of the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.   As we've seen, in the last week and in the coming days, there will be many memories
recalled and achievements noted.  In my mind, she was the epitome of dignity
and grace, and her life of service above self was unique.  She will be sorely missed.   A sad day for not only all the Commonwealth but the world, our condolences
to her family and to all of us.
In sympathy,
Ineke Oliver

4 Way Test Speaking Contest
State Final  
What a night to remember. We were blown away by the Four Year 10 Students who competed in the State Final for the 4 Way Test Speaking Contest on Thursday.
It was a tremendous effort by all students who so confidently and passionately addressed some major topics being faced in society. Well done and congratulations to Zoey, Aberly, Isabella and Nibesh.
Isabella from Mercedes College was awarded first place with the support of Rotary of Perth, and Nibesh from Perth Modern School, was awarded runner-up, supported by Rotary of Subiaco.
What a privilege it is to be part of such a special event that not only supports the development of young people but also provides an environment for them to learn and apply the 4 Way Test to real world situations. Our future is in good hands with these young leaders!
Lastly, we want to thank all the participating Clubs: Perth RotaryCannington Rotary, Rotary Club of Kenwick and Rotary Club of Subiaco.
Rotary Club of Northbridge is delighted to be working with Zonta Northern Suburbs Club in this assembly of birthing kits to be sent to communities in developing countries to enable better hygiene during childbirth, thus reducing the risk of disease and fatalities.

The District Membership Committee is looking for enthusiastic members who are interested in coming together to help start new clubs in our district!
The team will work with the an experience member of the Membership Committee, who has helped to start multiple Rotary clubs, to assess geographic areas, demographics or causes which may not currently be represented in Rotary. The goal is to help that community start a new club, without impacting an existing nearby club. 
Rotary is such an amazing opportunity, so you will be helping more people experience Rotary, who may not have found their club yet or who may not be able to access a club.
The commitment is about 1 hour per month. 
Please email Samantha Fewster, Membership and Club Development Director, to express your interest in being part of this team (samantha.fewster@rotaryeq.org).
