Enjoying Singapore

June 2024

Hello everyone,
One of the main highlights of this past month would have to be the International Convention in Singapore which was attended by 76 of our West Australian Rotarians and their partners. Our District had the highest number of attendees from our Zone (Australia, New Zealand, Pacific Islands).
Whilst there, we enjoyed getting together for dinner at an up-market Hawker Centre and everyone clearly enjoyed the local food. It was a special delight to be given home-made mooncakes by Sheila Cheng. Sheila and her husband Lau are members of the Rotary Club of Freshwater Bay here in WA, and reside in Singapore, initiating and supporting projects both there and elsewhere.
The Convention itself was another great international Rotary event, with about 14,000 people from approximately 110 different nations. It was lovely to see people greeting each other after not having seen each other for some time. The next International Convention is in Calgary, Canada, in June 2025 and I highly recommend you check it out. These events are testament to the internationality of Rotary and celebrate the huge impact we make in the lives of others all over the globe.
Since the last DG newsletter I have visited clubs in Albany, Mount Barker and Geraldton as well as clubs in the metropolitan area. As my time as District Governor comes to an end, I will miss the club visits, where I have seen firsthand the incredible number of projects that bring delight and fulfilment to the Rotarians who are engaged with them, as well as the enormous impact they make in their local communities and further afield.
This past year, our District has been managed by a very talented group of people who make up the District Leadership Team and with whom I feel honoured to have served as we worked together to support all our Rotarians and clubs. Their time is as precious as yours and mine and they have given much of their time and expertise for the benefit of all of us.
I want to express my special thanks and appreciation to a very special person, my husband Geoff, who has been on this journey with me and whose support has carried me through all the way.
I look forward to seeing you at the District Appreciation Sundowner on 29th June, we have kept the price low ($40 pp) but space is limited so please book in soon, the link is elsewhere in this newsletter. This event will be our District Changeover where I will hand the ‘reins’ to District Governor Elect Patricia Schraven, a committed and passionate Rotarian whom I know is also keen to work with you to see Rotary Western Australia reach its potential.
This will be my last DG newsletter and I wish to extend my heartfelt thanks to you all for giving me the honour of being your District Governor, it has been the experience of a lifetime. Memories have been made that will never be forgotten and I look forward to meeting you all again somewhere, sometime. Thank you for all your support, it has been so very highly appreciated.
Rotary Western Australia’s future is very bright. This was our first year as one District and the main thing I have learned is that we certainly do have the ability to grow and flourish. My plea is for us all to engage, have a go at something new and continue to enjoy our own ‘Adventures in Service’!
Yours in Rotary service

Treemission is a Rotary tree planting program that has goals of informing Rotarians about what is happening in the environment, what they can do about it and deliver tree planting activities.
2024 Treemission tree planting event
This is the project and location:
Exciting times ahead in 2024 for treemission as we move to support restoration work on the Wungong River near Armadale. The State government has provided significant funding to ensure the Wungong River becomes a healthy river corridor for local wildlife, and for us to enjoy into the future.

Treemission has linked again with SERCUL this time to rehabilitate the river course. Matt Barbour, with SERCUL, will lead us for two days in July (20th and 21st) to plant a target of 3,000 plants per day (at least).
Each day starts at 0900hrs with a briefing, then morning tea at 1000hrs and a sausage sizzle at 1230.

Matt will provide planting equipment and plants (but I suggest you bring your favourite gloves and trowel), and Treemission and our Rotarians will cater for morning tea and a sausage sizzle.

You will need to bring personal items such as sunscreen, hats, boots, water and any other items you might think you will need including a chair? There are toilets located nearby at the shopping centre.
Register HERE to volunteer
Approximate location of planting is shown on the map below.
