Heirisson Happenings

Hi Folks, 

Last week.....
We had a delightful talk by Ros Marshall, the District 9455 Aboriginal Reference Group Chairperson. Ros showed the vast diversity of all the Aboriginal Nations across Australia before European white settlement and they still exist today. Ros speaks the Noongah language fluently and was able to give us the Noongah "Acknowledgment of Country" in that language. Ros also explained the difference between Acknowledgement and Welcome to Country and a great deal more. A great talk enjoyed by all, thank you Ros. 
From President Don:
While in Longreach, I had a fair bit of contact with the Longreach Rotary Club.  The Club has about 18 members and is active in the community – and they have three trailers!  Most of the members are still actively employed (90%) and we have a balance of men and women (60:40), old and young (median age approx. 55), and include an ethnic mix (15%).  The club has three core actions - providing drought assistance, social connectivity and building community resilience for a strong future.  These last two actions are important in a town of about 3,000 people that is a long way from major urban centres, and working hard to maintain services.  And, while we were there they ran a sausage sizzle at the weekly street markets!’
Also from District Gov Dee Buckland:
I would appreciate you joining me at this very valuable workshop on Aboriginal cultural awareness. 
The presenters, Tim Muirhead and Danny Ford, are inspired and knowledgeable leaders in their field and we will all learn a little bit more about our wonderful Australian History and how we as Rotarians can make the difference that matters.
Danny and Tim use an engaging, interactive, and conversational approach. They’ll explore, together with us ‘what does real ‘reconciliation’ look like, and why does it matter?’ . They will guide us through an overview of the experience and impact of dispossession on Aboriginal people, perspectives on current issues, and ways for thinking about how Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people and groups can work together.
There are limited places available so please register as soon as possible if you'd like to attend. Click here  to register.
I hope you will join me.  
Kindest regards
