Does Rotary as we know it today have a future?  Will we be here in 20 years?  What should we look like?  Are you wanting to make an investment for the future?
By answering YES, member volunteers from Rotary District 9455 put up their hands to look at ways to support the on-going viability of Rotary through our Forum for the Future workshops.
Rotary Fellowships consist of members who share a common interest in recreational activities, sports, hobbies, or professions. These groups help expand skills, foster vocational development, and enhance the Rotary experience by exploring interests while developing connections around the world.
Recently the partnership between Edith Cowan University (ECU) and Rotary District 9455 to ‘Eradicate Melanoma Deaths’ through the Rotary for Melanoma Research (R4MR) project was formalised with the signing of an MOU. Deputy Vice Chancellor Professor Steve Chapman and now Past District Governor Lindsay Dry signed the agreement in May, which commits each party to work together to assist in taking the great work undertaken by ECU Researcher Prof Mel Ziman (Rotarian) and her team to the community. 
New Chapter for Foodvan
This week marked the end of an era as RC Karrinyup handed over the Foodvan to RC Balajura-Malaga to facilitate their fundraising for charity work.  The van has given great service over the years but with the administration of the Stirling Farmers Market now taking up a major part of our human resources, it is time to transfer its use and benefits to another club.  Rotarians working together for humanity!
 For several years, the Northbridge Rotary Club has worked with the Rotary Club of Kelowna-Ogopogo in British Columbia, Canada (District 5060), to facilitate the Rotary Adventures in Tourism student exchange between Australia and Canada to foster international fellowship and to promote tourism studies.
The Northbridge Rotary Club presently pays all operating costs for the operation of a ‘Breakfast Club’ at Forrestfield Primary School, a State school in Perth’s south-eastern foothills, as part of a project designed and instigated in 2011 by Bev and John Lowe of Manna Inc. This initiative is designed to assist the children of disadvantaged families by ensuring that no child at the School has to go without breakfast on each school day.
Some time ago the Rotary Club of Karrinyup was approached to assist the Mooro County Tour Group to provide seating at Lake Gwelup Reserve for members of their cultural tour groups.
Mooro Country Tours are a not-for-profit organisation run in association with Wadjak Northside Aboriginal Resource Centre Balga, who provide walking tours - cultural experiences with local Aboriginal elders.  Participants are able to learn about local Aboriginal people and their contribution to the City of Stirling.
The Microscopes in School project was the concept of the Chief Scientist of WA, Prof. Lyn Beazley.  As she was concerned at the huge shortfall of young people going on to study science at a higher level, she said that unless a love of science was developed in students at an early age this trend would be difficult to reverse.
In December 2016, the Rotary Club of Scarborough’s New Generations committee provided $2,000 to the Trailblazer Foundation, Cambodia.  Trailblazer provides significant grassroots support to Cambodian communities through health, food security, education and economic development programs. 
The completed Earbus is the realization of a dream for Professor Harvey Coates AO, Clinical Patron, Earbus Foundation of WA, who three years ago envisaged a mobile 'go anywhere' clinic capable of travelling to remote areas of the northwest of Western Australia. Thanks to the passionate 'fund, design and build' campaign of the RC Karrinyup, this dream has now become a reality. 
The genesis of the Zambia Water Project was in 2012 under the leadership of Colin Rose, who was the Rotary Club of Karrinyup’s International Director at the time.
The committee first identified a long term goal to support a school with boarding facilities for orphaned and vulnerable children in Ndola, Zambia.  It soon became apparent that before much progress could be made, a reliable source of fresh water must be sourced.  What also became clear was that this would take some considerable time.
