|Last Weeks Speaker - Paul Zappa|
Last week we had the pleasure of hearing Paul who is closely involved in the "Be the Hero" program. Be the Hero! is a violence prevention program designed for use in groups of young men. Be the Hero! was developed and trialed by the Victorian Women's Trust and found to be effective with mainstream groups of boys in years 9 and 10.
|Wheelchairs for Cambodia|
by John Roberts
Vocational team member John Roberts, with Wayne
Slattery of the 'Wheelchairs for Cambodia' program were at the handover
at DIK in Sunshine.
Wayne has arranged for the chairs to go to Cambodia
via Qantas. They will be allocated to disabled children who have lost
legs through land mine explosions.
These kids are presently only mobile because they can drag themselves along the ground on their hands or arms.
"This will absolutely change the live of 5 children
in Cambodia. They will now be mobile enough to attend school and
develop real independence" Wayne said after the handover.
He sincerely thanked the Rotary Club of Albert Park
for their efforts and hoped that more assistance might eventuate when
he has another "free" freight arrangement in place.
|June is Rotary Fellowship Month|
JUNE - ROTARY FELLOWSHIP MONTH
Share a common interest in worthwhile recreational activities (sports, hobbies, etc.);
Further vocational development through acquaintance with others of the same profession;
Make new friends around the world;
Explore new opportunities for service; and
Have fun and enhance their experience in Rotary.
What are the benefits for Rotarians in
joining the Rotary Fellowships? Fellowship provide opportunities for
Rotarians to make lasting friendships outside their own Club, District
or country. Fellowships contribute to the advancement of world
understanding and peace. Also, Fellowships serve as an incentive for
attracting new members to Rotary and retaining our existing members.
Indeed, Rotary Fellowship, together with the Rotarian Action Groups,
serve as an effective tool in promoting membership development and should be actively promoted in our Districts.
Members of the Scuba Diving Rotary Fellowship show their club banner underwater.
Interested Rotarians can join a Rotary Fellowship by clicking
or even start a prospective Rotary
Fellowship if their recreational or vocational interest is not in the
list of approved Rotary Fellowships.
