* Angus, a Representative from West Perth Rotary, gave us a very informative
talk about their club. They have an international committee that looks over
international exchanges and have been involved in projects that range from
supporting volunteers in East Timor and providing them with funding to
running educational programs in Africa to deal with the issue of sex
slavery. They work with Clarkson Snr Highschool in supporting student
exchange and science forums. They also support the Great Bike Ride and will
provide food for the event in November.
He mentioned that they needed volunteers to usher at the Regal Theatre
around November for their Storm of the Stage and Magic Show events. They
were also keen to have a representative from Rotoract each week attend their
meeting at the Twarri Lodge in Nedlands. Meetings are on Thursdays 7.30 -
8.30 am and includes breakfast. Lauren will be putting together a roster so
we can take turns representing UWA Rotoract at their weekly meetings.
*Next Meeting - Tuesday the 30th August at the May Tannock Room 1pm
