Presidents Message: Mark & Mary Norval Return As Guest Speakers


Some of you may remember Mark and Mary Norval from their presentation to us about mental health concerns in his remote community.

Both Mark and Mark are recognised experts in Kimberley Art & Culture.



If you missed this great meeting, take a look at the recording below.

Ian Yarker OAM


Rotary brings people together who would not normally meet, to do things for others including many they may never meet. To voluntarily serve is to enrich everyone involved. Rotary membership does this.Ian attributes this honour to all the people he has met and voluntarily worked with on so many projects in so many parts of the world. They have shared, they have joined in and they have respected the call to volunteer. But he says his greatest support and inspiration comes from his wife Heather (OAM). Without the support, drive and attitude of Heather a lot of the achievements may not have had the same outcome. We are a team
supporting each other, complimenting each other's dreams, visions, desires and challenges.

Our Clubs Knitting Project: A Message From One Of Our Knitters

We recently received this lovely message from Dorothy. Dorothy and friends reside in a retirement village and contribute to our e-clubs knitting project. 

“A couple of weeks ago I put on our "in house TV" in the village asking for 8 ply  yarns and had a great response.  People are wonderful and even a 90 year old man came to my door and gave money so I could go buy wool. I showed him the things I was putting in the box to post to you, I explained that I could use this money for postage, if he agreed and then he gave me another $50 saying he felt so impressed to help. This is real love for people and I believe how the love of God can work.”
