Common Rotary wisdom suggests that once a club closes, that's it, with the benefits of a Rotary presence deprived from that community forever. Not so!
Maybe it's time for a rethink.  In 1997, the Rotary Club of Clermont (Qld) closed and handed back their charter.  This year Rotary returned to Clermont after a 25-year absence and chartered a new club with 25 members on 14 June 2022.
In this heartwarming story of Rotary revival, Terry Daley shares the simple formula that created a modern Rotary Clermont.  Could it work here in Western Australia?

Welcome to the last Squad Summit for the 2022 Rotary Elizabeth Quay year!
Since it's Spring, we will be hosting a spring cleaning themed summit with a global motivational speaker Cam Calkoen. Cam was born in 1984 with Cerebral Palsy was told that his biggest challenges in life would be the way he walks and talks. Despite these challenges he became an athletic gold medalist in the 100 and 200 meters, Tedx Speaker and won the 2020 Speaker of The Year in New Zealand. He will share his insights into overcoming challenges discovering priorities and living an awesome life. 
We also have the great fortune to welcome one of our newest members Zafar Yasin. Zafar will share his experience as one of the first military commando responders in the 1993 Battle of Mogadishu (dramatised in Black Hawk Down).  
Our summits are always jam packed with celebration, insight and generosity.

Bouncing Back with Kim Hughes
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.
