Making a difference... you can too
If you give people the opportunity they can achieve outstanding things. 
 
It's this simple philosophy that inspires a lot of the work Applecross Rotary does, locally and further afield. 
 
Our members come from all walks of life - we're engineers, lawyers, marketeers, scientists, educators, farmers and retailers, the list goes on - and we range in age from our early 20s through to mid 80s. The commonality we share is an interest in using our time, skills and energy to improve the lives of others . And we like to have fun while we do it!
 
Our projects are equally varied. From our much-loved Rotary Jacaranda Festival, the Pride of Workmanship Awards, a local Art Show and Sale, numerous youth initiatives as well as supporting indigenous, mental health and women's refuge projects and delivering major health and water based projects that will save lives.... we're an ambitious club with the power to get things done. 
 
GET IN TOUCH
Applecross Rotary meets weekly but we've embraced a more flexible approach to membership. 
 
We meet on Tuesday mornings at 7am for a 7.30am start, at the Dome Café, Deep Water Point, Mt Pleasant. and via ZOOM  for our members and guests who cannot make the meetings in person. 
 
If you would like to join us send an email to secretary@applecrossrotary.org
 
 We love to welcome visitors so feel free to get in touch and arrange to come along to one of our meetings or regular social events to try us on for size. If you're interested in finding our more about becoming a member please drop us a line.

Half Year Review
Club News
Since the Container Deposit Scheme (CDS) was introduced on the 1st October 27.8 million containers have been collected.  Every container collected through Containers for Change is recycled!  Before Containers for Change, only 3 in 10 containers were recycled, meaning the other 7 are either being littered or sent to landfill. 
 
Our partnership with Greenbatch not only takes the containers for refund but also continues to collect and process the non CDS type 1 and type 2 plastic containers.  The Greenbatch Foundation have been doing this for over 3 years through support of passionate volunteers wanting to reduce plastic pollution.  By using Greenbatch as a Container Refund operator they receive an additional 6 cents per container from the Containers for Change program that will support their great work in continuing to ENGAGE, EDUCATE and EMPOWER Western Australians to give plastic a new life and keep plastic pollution out of our oceans.

Our trailer, that was purchased with our successful application for Federal Funding through the Volunteer Grant program, now has signage promoting Rotary and our club.  Thanks to Kate Zappa for the design and Brent Caithness (Complete Film Solutions)  for his support in producing the signs.

Applecross Rotary is a proud supporter of Foodbank and the Jacaranda Festival gives us an excellent opportunity to 'Run a Food Drive' to help raise awareness of hunger and collect food for people in need.
 
Through our promotion of the Jacaranda Festival we will be encouraging people to bring along their food donations to our stall number 138.
