What is happening this Tuesday
This Tuesday we have 2 guest speakers:  Nicole and Yvonne from NY Events they are going to talk about why they started they events company and what they have achieved. 
Rotary Meeting 18 August, 2020
We had 16 members in attendance.  President Kaye opened the meeting at 6.45 pm, and we were treated to a lovely chicken meal.
As per Martin’s email he is collecting for people in need.  This includes food as well as (clean) clothing such as underwear and socks.
Martin is also organising a walk/ride to raise money for anti Ice work.  Ice is devastating and very hard to get off.  Looking at having a group going into schools with ex-addicts talking to students.
Liam recently spoke to Kalamunda Senior High School students.  The school is looking for local Vocational speakers, preferably women, to speak to their students, speaking for 20/30 minutes and then taking questions.
There will be a BBQ with Rotaract at Kaye’s place on 28 November.
The raffle prize of $24.50 was won by Ric.
Our Walk
  • Kaye reminded us that we all need to be supporting the Club’s forthcoming walk.  We also need to look at how we are going to advertise it.
  • We are looking at a membership drive at Xanthorea which we can advertise on our walk.
  • We are also looking at a membership drive in January – Kaye would appreciate ideas on the best way to go about this.  Some great suggestions came from the floor – maybe an Australia Day BBQ, maybe a brunch, possibly an Australia Day breakfast at Stirk Park – link with the City.
There was some discussion on the importance of committees – generally agreed that they are necessary to do much of the club work, and they are also important to keep members involved.
Community Projects
The main points from the discussion on Community Projects:
  • Community projects should be sustainable.  This should be mentioned in the application form.
  • There should be an acquittal form – we have one drafted.
  • The Bush Tucker project was approved by the members present.
  • We need to be mindful of the 80% local, 20% international ration for the expenditure of club funds.
  • At this stage there will be no calls for Community Grants given the reduced income due to COVID.  This will be reviewed in January.
Past President’s Thought
This was a great meeting – thank you President Kaye for running it the way you did.  The seating arrangements encourage positive discussion and we all were able to have our say.  
Did you know...
Do U Know the 2020 Rotary theme ? 
RI President Holger Knaack’s theme for 2020-21, “Rotary Opens Opportunities”, asks Rotarians to create opportunities that strengthen their leadership, help put service ideas into action, and improve the lives of those in need.
Update from ex RYE student Katrine
Dear Rotary Club of Kalamunda, 
It's been almost 2 years since I last wrote to the club, so I figured it would be nice to reach out to you again. First of all, I hope you are all doing well despite the uncertain conditions we all live under at the moment. I was glad to hear that WA has become a corona-free state! 
I am almost 19 years old now and doing well at home in Denmark. Next week I will enter my last year of high school at the international United World College in Maastricht, The Netherlands! I remember there was a Dutchie in the Rotary club - perhaps they know Maastricht? 
I feel that the school I go to is very much an extension of the values I learnt from Rotary; kindness, curiosity and giving back to your community. I often think about how the Rotary Youth Exchange programme led me in every way to where I am today and how thankful I will always be for that. That one year changed everything about my perspective! Although my English accent has sadly become quite Americanised, I still catch myself using phrases such as: "Chuck it in the bin", "No worries" and "Good on ya", so there's still a slight tint of Aussie in me.
I am finishing my final exams in May and am planning to take a gap year and return to Western Australia if everything is back to normal then. Hopefully I can come back and join a Rotary meeting again. I still try my best to keep in contact with my Australian host families, friends and exchange student friends, and have been so lucky to be able to meet up with around 10 of the 16 exchange students from my year of Rotary Exchange. 
I hope the previous years of Kalamunda exchange students have enjoyed being in your club as much as I did - you truly are a great one with a fantastic Aussie and Rotarian spirit!
I am sending you some photos from my school and a catch-up with friends from exchange in Australia. 
The warmest regards and best wishes for you all,
Katrine Fugl
