June marks an important time for all of us as we recognize Alzheimer's and the significant impact it has on individuals, families, and communities.
At the Alzheimer's / Dementia Rotary Action Group (ADRAG), we are dedicated to raising awareness, providing support, and fostering hope for those affected by these challenging conditions.
Our mission at ADRAG is not just to bring attention to Alzheimer's but to mobilize action and resources that can lead to meaningful change. This month, we call upon you to join us in our efforts by supporting the initiatives and programs that ADRAG champions.
One way to support ADRAG is by encouraging others to become members. For a minimum annual donation of $25, individuals can join ADRAG and help us in our mission to assist those living with Alzheimer's and dementia. Membership not only supports our initiatives but also connects members with a network of individuals committed to making a difference.
Additionally, members can take an active role by organizing fundraising activities. By filling out the ADRAG fundraising request form, we provide the tools and resources needed to run various fundraising events on behalf of ADRAG. Creativity and dedication can make a significant impact in raising funds and awareness.
Another powerful way to make a difference is by participating in a Community Benefit Business Network (CBBN). The concept of the CBBN echoes the very principles upon which Rotary was founded. When Paul Harris established Rotary in 1905, his vision was to create a network of professionals who could exchange ideas and form meaningful, lasting friendships while making a positive impact on their communities. The Community Benefit Business Networks we are developing today are a modern extension of this vision, fostering collaboration between businesses and Rotary to drive community support and development.
CBBNs are innovative business networks being established by Rotary Districts nationwide. These networks involve local businesses that commit to contributing a portion of the proceeds from their products and services to causes supported by Rotarians, such as ADRAG. By doing so, they create a sustainable flow of funds that can significantly bolster our efforts to combat Alzheimer's and dementia.
We are excited to announce that ADRAG is actively seeking to collaborate with Districts to set up CBBNs in their areas. Through our partnership with Our Mayberry, the platform driving these networks, we aim to create robust, community-focused initiatives that leverage local business contributions to support our cause.
Warm regards,
Bill Shillito
Chairman, ADRAG

Through Karrinyup Rotary, opportunity has knocked for Rotary around WA to be involved in a maternal and newborn child mental health project.  We invite Rotarians with relevant vocational skills and child health/health promotion experience (or simply committed to Rotary service in this area), and especially clubs in localities where existing Mother-Baby Nurture groups exist, to participate.
We are working to expedite this project and DGR arrangements before 30 June this year. If you are interested, and for more information, please contact us very soon.

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.

Approximate location of planting is shown on the map below.
