President Kaye outlined effects of cancelled Heritage Walk. Bush tucker plants sold made $300 profit. Unsold plants were returned to Domus Nurseries at no cost. Soft drinks will be sold at Market. 2 Raffles will take place in Nov and December. Its hoped that $2000 will be made form the proceeds of the above. Fairy House Wishing Well will showcase at Visitors Centre for 2 weeks, promoting Rotary and making some money.
Market Director Sheryl outlined Covid Plan to be implemented for the October Market, following a meeting with the City of Kalamunda. Exit and Entry Signs to Market to be displayed, Market classified as Low to Medium risk. There will be 10 fewer stalls approx and crowd limit to be 2000 at any time. All Stallholders will have sanitisers and Rotarians will clean surfaces in Hall toilets at regular intervals.
Jonathan    Hat Day highlighting Australian Rotary health Mental Issues. Rotarians and Stallholders encouraged to wear funny hats. Rotaracters will be running a Raffle and Rotarians will be shaking a tin at each entrance to Markets.
Aboriginal University Scholarship. Lucy was sponsored by the Club a few years ago $2500. Club needs to agree to continue with another. This Scholarship is a Rotary Health Project ,well monitored, student produces frequent reports and this flows into the Communities. The Club will vote on this in future meeting.
Morning Tea at Zanthorrea Nursery Saturday 17th October.  has been cancelled - due to unavailability of venue. In lieu we will have a social catch up at the Kalamunda Tap House at Haynes Street, Kalamunda/
Mens  Shed Open Day. Saturday Nov 14th  10.00am -4.00pm.  Community groups are invited to set up a stall to display their Community involvement. Club to prepare a Rotary info stall.
PDG Paul Gianatti has revised the Club Bylaws and ensured that they are in alignment with Rotary International and also our Club Constitution. The draft Bylaws will be distributed to all members to review in the next 2 weeks, and we will be voting on the acceptance of the same at a club meeting TBC

Past Rotarian Greg facilitated the discussion. Aim is to identify 5-10 Projects which could be divided into Short Medium or Long Term. Areas of interest could be: Social, Health and Fitness, Aged Care and could be ours alone or shared with another Club.
  1. Martin suggested Aboriginal Youth, Homeless, Walk Against Ice
  2. Food Bank. Organise large event to collect goods in carparks in central areas eg by Woolies , Aldi and Coles and then organise trailers to take to the Food Bank. Also, organise for groups to help at the depot itself.
  3. Aboriginal Health. Assist Aboriginal Communities in personal hygiene education through provision of washing machines maybe in central points like schools to ensure clothes are washed regularly. Can also provide refurbishes machines. Aboriginal Child Literacy Programme in Primary Schools. Working with teachers to set targets, use role models eg footy stars to visit and assist. Instagram already has similar programmes on their site so Rotary can tap into this.
  4. Monet Garden at Stirk Park. Could be a long term project linked with the Park’s redevelopment eg children’s playground.
  5. Caravan Safety Course. Organise a Day to promote road safety, maintenance etc and providing a Rotary sticker after completion.
  6. Vegetable Garden in Primary Schools. Work with P&C to develop the garden and invite chef to cook a meal using the produce. Concern here is staffing as it depends on enthusiastic teacher. If staff changes no guarantee that project will continue. Could be more useful to meet with Primary Heads and discuss their needs.
  7. Connecting Youth with Residents in Aged Care Homes.  Organise visits and letter writing from local pupils. This has proved very rewarding both for pupils and residents where it is practised.
  8. Organise Walk/Bike/Fitness Trail eg in Jorgensen Park
Guidelines for Rotary Projects. Should focus on Humanitarian Aid and not already in place by other organisations.
Next level is to look at Pros and Cons of suggested Projects, develop a business plan. Project feasibility could be assessed by using our Community Grant Application Form and collating Short term Projects.

Rotary Youth Exchange - September Report
Hello all,
Hope everything is well with you.
Here's my report for September.
The weathers definitely in Autumn now as its windy and cold and we've been having a lot of rain too. Its a very abrupt change to the week before which was very sunny and warm.

Finally got my Visa sorted out. It was a little ironic that in the same week, I got a call about how the Rotary is trying to send us home. This year hasn't been what is expected and I have learnt so much but also its been very tough.  I feel ready to come home now. And its more beneficial for everything else too; in case we go into lockdown again and its hard to fly, time for me to move to Perth for University, time to readjust to normal life and Australian society.

I have been attending a language school to do a German course. I completed A1,1 and A1,2, early on in the year and skipped over A2,1 and A2,2 courses to complete B1,1 this last month. I passed the final exam :)
I love doing the language courses as I am engaged, learning, meeting other foreigners and it goes until around lunch time daily.
I am going to normal school again and I miss the language school a lot.

I have been meeting up with my Brazilian exchange friend very often. We went out to Korean barbecue this weekend which was very delicious. 
Hope you have a wonderful October.
