  2. 2. NEW HORIZONS Club Constitution Update We are required by Rotary International to update our Club Constitution after every Council on Legislation, which is the body which meets every three years to examine changes to Rotary’s standard Constitution. PDG Colin Thorniley has supplied the necessary information and paperwork to all clubs for this to happen. All clubs are required by the Department of Commerce to have these amendments approved by each club’s active members and lodged with the Department, though we have no choice about updating this document. Schedule One is required by RI and Schedule Two is simply listen during the course of the Other directors and members will required by the WA Associations meeting. still be given an opportunity to Incorporations Act. present reports at each meeting. The proposal is to share amongst In mid October Secretary Di will each “avenue of service” (Club Interact send to all members a ‘Notice of a Service, International Service / the Special General Meeting’ and Rotary Foundation, Community Director Marcos is looking at a date subsequent steps will follow to Service, Vocational Service and New after the school holidays to hold an comply with this requirement.

  3. 3. HORIZONS Paint Your Pinky On Wednesday 22nd September, President Simone & Marcos Carot Collins (along with their children Ariana and Eva, and Marcos’s sister Marcela Carot), Rob Rohrlach, Bronwen Tyson, Elizabeth Bain, and Ken and Di Collins attended the Claremont Primary School's “Paint Your Pinky” day. A wonderful poster was designed by Claremont Primary student Millie and senior students painted pinkies with purple nail polish as they collected a total of $198 from students for PolioPlus. Principal Joe Dellaposta was totally supportive of the exercise as it was not only an excellent PR exercise for Rotary, but also alerted the children to the importance of immunisation. GSE Team Leader Selected Unfortunately Rob Rohrlach was not selected as the Team Leader for the Group Study Exchange Team travelling to Germany in May of 2011. There was a very strong field of six applicants, and feedback received was that it was a very difficult decision.
