It’s best to include at least your Suburb, even the Street Name is safe, just don’t give your street number until you have a buyer who wants to come to you. Buyers will choose your product over someone else’s if you live closer

Show you care by joining with the Rotary Clubs of Attadale and Fremantle, in their annual Give a Damn Give a Can food drive. This project involves the collection of cans of food suitable for use by organisations distributing food to people in need. Donate a few full cans or packets of non perishable food to assist those in need in our community and the Centres that help them by providing meals and food parcels.
Rotary will be dropping recyclable plastic bags into letterbox’s in the Fremantle and Attadal areas very soon, please fill with items of non-perishable food next to your letter box and volunteers from Rotary will collect it on Sunday morning 27th May. If you are unable to leave items out for us or we somehow miss your contribution, please call 046 7609 993 to alert us to collect your donation.
Facebook has over 850 million users, 31% of these “check in” more than once a day. Twitter has over 500 million registered users, 36% of Twitter users tweet at least once per day.2/3 of those online use social media. With these sort of numbers Social Media is something that cannot be ignored.
Social Media / Facebook are places where people can go to leave you a message, browse through your photo collections, or even chat with you while you are online. It can be a great way to keep in contact with friends and family, and even find long lost friends that you haven’t spoken to in years. It’s also a great place to meet new friends and to interact and communicate with the community and others.
Fremantle Rotary has taken it’s first steps in becoming part of this. We have established a Facebook and twitter presence and are finalising strategies and guidlines for using these.
The Rotary Club of Fremantle Trot Night is to be held on Friday 1st June at Gloucester Park. We are seeking race sponsors for 10 races.
The major sponsorship ($1,000) has naming rights for the major race and is entitled to a full page race book advertisement. In addition they present the main trophy and are entitled to 4 guests in the committee room. Other race sponsors ($500) have naming race rights and a third of a page race book advertisement. There are also 2 half page race book advertisements available for $250 each.
We are also seeking horse sponsors at $50 each. If a sponsored horse wins, the sponsor receives $100. As in previous years, our members are asked to go out and find as many sponsors as they can. It is an important fundraising event for our club raising about $10,000 for our community charities.
We encourage members and others to be there on the night for a meal and a lot of fun. Please bring as many friends as possible, we will have entry passes for them. More details on that side of things to come.We are indebted to Gloucester Park Harness racing for allowing us this fundraising opportunity. Our thanks to them will be to encourage as many people through the gate as possible.
As you are all aware the Information night is coming up on the 18th April. (details to be advised)This is a most important event for our club as we endeavour to keep the club invigorated and thriving with new members. Of course on the night most of you will be aware of the need to showcase the club to its best and we will be asking all our Rotarians to make the visitors really welcome.
The committee has been working hard to get some invitees with some success. This week the ads will start going in the paper and the banner will reappear (no it wasn’t stolen just strategically withdrawn for a couple of weeks) and I hope to get an article in the press.
All of this needs you (our members) to make an extra effort to tell people about our club and its wonderful work, point out our web site www.fremantlerotary.org,
share the Facebook Page http://www.facebook.com/FremantleRotary and wear your badge with pride. Let Max know if you have anyone you want to invite to the night.
Our theme for the night will be:
