Meeting Notes from the 27th of October
We had 13 members in attendance and welcomed guest speakers Richard Ladny and David Motta.  We also welcomed Sarah from Rotaract and Matthew who is President of Swan Districts club.
President Kaye
  • Our club had 2 tables at Saturday’s Rotaract Quiz Night.  One came 3rd and one came 3rd last!  It was a great night – one of the best Quiz Nights we have attended.
  • Our Christmas function will be at Tania’s home on 19 December.  It will be catered.
  • There will be a Rotary/Rotaract BBQ at Kaye’s on 28 November.
  • Leon, Ric and Kaye met with City of Kalamunda representatives re the Stirk Park playground which looks really good.  We will endeavour to have a Councillor come and explain more about the project.  They can’t come on a Tuesday.  Kaye will organise a suitable night.
Guest Speakers
Dan welcomed our guest speakers – both are Rotarians.
Richard told us that homelessness is an epidemic – in Midland, homelessness has grown by 740% in 3 years.
In WA, 9 000 people are homeless each night.  30% are Indigenous.
One solution is My Home.  These are small, self-contained homes – 30 m2.
The major cost of a home is the land, and if this cost is taken out, the house is much more affordable.  To this end, the State Government leases land at a peppercorn rent, a good example of government and the private sector working together.  A simple design is used and the house is assembled on site but can be moved when the Government wants the land back.  Fremantle and Victoria Park will have the first houses.
Our job as Rotarians is to turn a house into a home by fitting it out.  This includes furniture, appliances and a welcoming parcel.  Clubs can determine how much they want to spend.  $600 will pay for a kitchen pack for a home.  $10 000 will fit out a kitchen.  It may be an idea to collaborate with other clubs.
This is a wonderful project, and the talk generated great questions.
Dan thanked our guests on our behalf.
Our Movie night is Sunday 22 November.  All money raised goes to polio.
Sarah is Rotaract’s Community Services Director.  They are ready, willing and able to help us with our projects, including helping at the Markets.
Matthew is President of Swan Districts Club and is visiting other clubs to get new ideas.
Martin spoke on the anti-Ice campaign where ex addicts talk in schools to year 11 and 12 students.  Ice is one of the worst drugs and very few get off it.
A very busy and very good meeting.
President Elect
Members will remember that Kaye took on this year’s Presidency at short notice.  However, we don’t have a President Elect for the 21/22 Rotary year.  We need members to put some thought into this as we need this position filled before the end of the year.
