On Thursday representatives from the Rotary Club of Horsham East, Local State Member of Parliament, WIM Resources attended the senior graduation ceremony at the Holy Trinity Lutheran School to present year 10 participants with the Winners Shield for being the highest scoring school in the local round of the Science event.
 
As a result of the HTLC Year 10 students score in the Horsham event, they joined seven qualifying schools from throughout Western Australia, Alice Springs and Tasmania to take part in the Science and Engineering Challenge National Final, hosted in Bendigo.
Students were challenged with several science problems and used their critical thinking skills to help solve them. Unfortunately, they did not place on the day, but a great effort was put in staff and students to attend at short notice
.
The local organisations that support this science challenge congratulated the HTLC for having the highest score in the Wimmera event, and making the final and also all other schools both senior and junior for attending this event in Horsham to allow there students to be part of this Science and Engineering Challenge.  We are looking forward to the 2023 event.

Rotary International President-elect Jennifer Jones (who is also our first female president) has announced the 2022-23 theme Imagine Rotary.
“Imagine, a world that deserves our best, where we get up each day knowing that we can make a difference.”
The theme is a special one: the theme graphic was designed by an Australian Indigenous artist to link with the Melbourne Convention in 2023. Some of the symbolism includes:
 
> Circle connections to one another
> Dots around it - our people
> There are 7 Dots for Rotary's 7 areas of focus
> Circle + dots around it - a navigation star, our guiding light
> Green solid line - digging stick (used when doing hard work); for us it's People of Action, represents the tools for getting things done
> The colours purple, green & white - celebrate diversity, equity and inclusion
> Freedom to express ourselves differently but still with a special connection
> Purple is also the colour of Rotary's Polio campaign
> Green represents the Environment
> White stands for peace; it also represents Empowerment and > Newness and also the colours were utilised for the women's movement, highlighting the opportunity to grow our female membership.
 
On Wednesday the 23rd of June 2021, the Changeover Dinner for the Rotary Club of Horsham East was held at the Horsham Golf Club.  This year we were able to invite guests to the evening to thank President Zane for his leadership during the past 12 months.   The last year has been tough for all voluntary organisations across the world, and our club was fortunate that Zane took on these challenges, and even with these challenges the club had a highly successful year.    With Zane’s leadership, and the support of club members and friends of Rotary, the club adapted to new ways to have meetings, gatherings, and running fundraising opportunities.    We congratulate Zane for his year as president and thank him for his leadership during this COVID period.
 
Pam Clarke was installed as our President for 2021-22, and we wish her all the best for the coming 12 months.

At a joint meeting of the Rotary Clubs of Horsham, Horsham East,  Warracknabeal, Nhill, and Camberwell was held in Horsham to present a Paul Harris Fellow recognition to the Wimmera Cancer Centre. The Cancer Centre is part of the Wimmera Health Care Group. The recognition is named for the founder of Rotary, Paul Harris, a Chicago lawyer who started Rotary International with three business associates in 1905. 
PHF recognition carries with it no obligations or costs to its recipients. It is a simple expression of thanks and respect from Rotarians. For individuals it provides a badge, a medallion and a certificate signed by the Chair of the Rotary Foundation Trustees and the President of Rotary International. For organisations, those items are attractively mounted and framed for display at their premises.  
The reasons for the well-deserved recognition relates to the extraordinary community respect and gratitude for the Wimmera Cancer Centre that are clearly evident in the Wimmera Community and for the pivotal role that the centre played in the early establishment of our Rotary “ROMP” program.
