Next Weeks Speaker - Erica Myers-Davis
by Loretta Michaelsen

Under One Flag: How indigenous and ethnic peoples of the Commonwealth and British Empire helped Great Britain win World War II. Author: Erica Myers-Davis "I think this is one of the most important books on World War II for the classroom as it shows what an amazing contribution that people of colour have made." Lance Corporal Johnson Beharry VC Under One Flag tells the stories of the unsung heroes and heroines of World War II from across the world. With personal forewords from Prince Harry and Lance Corporal Johnson Beharry VC, the first serving recipient of the Victoria Cross since 1969, it emphasises the vital contribution made by those from the Commonwealth and British Empire who volunteered during World War II  and more......

German Ambassadorial Scholar, Clemens Witt received a warm welcome from the other inbound scholars when he arrived in July. To celebrate his 30th birthday a few days after arrival he was taken out for  dinner in Lygon St Carlton by a gorgeous contingent of our inbound scholars here permanently.

Clemens is a man steeped in Rotary having been in Rotaract for 10 years, held the office of District Governor (Rotaract) in Germany and has attended 5 International Conventions. Now there's a challenge for RD9800 Rotarians to match!

Clemens has been assigned to RC Albert Park where his host counsellors, Henry & Loretta Michaelsen, share some close associations – Henry & Clemens mothers came from the same town in Germany.

Last Weeks Speaker Michael Dee

Last week we had the pleasure of Michael Dee from "Harvesting Funds Management" speak and give a detailed presentation at our meeting.

Michael spoke about China and the USA the volatility in trade and the many things that influence the market. What is at risk, how does it affect the countries.

We would like to thank Michael very much for attending our meeting and presenting a most interesting topic.




Donation to Oxfam

How Good are Members from The Rotary Club of Albert Park.

Last week Albert Park Rotarian Kevin Mooney requested that members assist with a donation towards an event his son was doing with Oxfam.

His large hat was passed around with members contributing spare change from their pockets.  At the end of the evening Kevin was asked how much did he collect.

His reply was -

That's a bit of a tall order to ask me how much is in the hat.  It's so full of money, I'll need a weekend to count it!!! 


Kevin sends many thanks to all for this. His  son and his Oxfam Walk colleagues are delighted.  The funds will go in as a donation from RCAP.  As advised they have created a record by raising all of the pledges before the walk.

Value raised was $146.85 with Kevin topping it up to $150.00.


Below is the link if you want any details of the team.  Our donation will be posted on the site over the next few days.



Guess who is in the Photo
