Wehad participants in RYPEN and RYLA this year and Hannah and Emma our two JCLA students attendedHandicamp as buddies. Aidan has also worked tirelessly to keep contact with our Interact Club, which was notan easy task as the co-ordinator from Ursula Frayne left the school at the end of the school year and it took a fullsemester for a replacement to be appointed. On top of this Aidan took on the role of mentor to Hannah, throughJCLA. Thank you Aidan, you did a wonderful job.Ros McLernon – Vocational.Ros started off the year with the intention of raising funds so she chose to produce and sell Christmas Hampers.Ros and her team were very successful in both the number of hampers sold and in sourcing the goods to makeup the hampers as much as possible from donations, thereby increasing the profits that were made.

ROTARY CLUB OF ASCOT VOLUME 43 - BULLETIN 39 DISTRICT 9465 19TH JUNE 2012 PAGE 4www.ascotrotary.org.au HOME OF THE DISTRICT GOVERNOR PRESIDENTS REPORT CONT....... This year we continued with mentoring through the John Curtin Leadership Academy. We had Aidan Wood mentoring Hannah Jackson, Ronnie Malthouse mentoring Emma McCormack and our latest Max Morrell mentoring James Gosling. Congratulations to all on a job well done. Whilst neither Hannah nor Emma have become members it is pleasing to note that Emma has joined South Perth Rotaract Club and I think we should continue our involvement with the academy and look forward to our next student. One other momentous occasion this year would have been to celebrate our 2nd 50 year Rotarian – Duggan Anderson as we did for Norm Bell last year. Unfortunately we have had to put our celebrations on hold until Duggan is well enough. We wish you a speedy recovery Duggan and look forward to celebrating with you in the not too distant future. I’m pleased to report that our business card project continues to grow both at home and overseas and we are now receiving repeat orders from happy Rotarians and clubs, A huge thanks must go to Kimberley who runs the business end of the project and Hugh who is the go between with Rotary International Licensing. A sterling job by both of you and also to Julia for ‘keeping the books’. The profits from this project are allocated towards our US$100 per member commitment to Foundation for our annual giving. We have continued our clubs aim to have 100% club members become Centurions through personal giving and it was very pleasing to see how close we came. The $2 per week personal contribution towards this program continued this year and thank you to all who dug a little deeper to make up your personal difference between what was collected and the US$100 requirement to make the full donation to this worthwhile program. Another aim for my year was to update our basic web page, which had been created to facilitate our on-line business card project. I elicited the help of Kimberley Holding and Deepti Roopun and together they have done a marvellous job. I believe we just need to include lots of photos on our projects page before going live. Kim and Dee can then update the web page as required with new and proposed projects, In addition to the Web Page, we created a Facebook page which is maintained by Kimberley and me as administrators. We have used this successfully to advertise events throughout the year as well as our current water Wells Project in Timor L’este. Kimberley has been sharing our weekly newsletter on the Facebook Page so Ascot Rotary is now modernised! Finally I would like to thank the club members for giving me the opportunity to lead such a great club and also for providing the support when I needed it. Thank you Janet Holding President 2011-2012
