The Ro­tary Club of Joon­dalup’s youngest pres­i­dent high­lights up­com­ing events and com­mu­nity projects.

YOUTH ex­change, a beach clean-up and home­less­ness is­sues will be some of the fo­cal points for the Ro­tary Club of Joon­dalup this month. Pres­i­dent El­iza Bour­gault du Coudray (23) said the group of “com­mu­nity-minded in­di­vid­u­als” met reg­u­larly at Joon­dalup Re­sort in Con­nolly and lived by the mantra of “ser­vice above self”.

The Con­nolly res­i­dent is the club’s youngest pres­i­dent to date and her goal is to lift its pro­file in the com­mu­nity. “The club is cur­rently seek­ing new mem­bers and there are a va­ri­ety of ways to sup­port and be in­volved with the club – ei­ther by be­com­ing a mem­ber, host­ing an ex­change stu­dent or vol­un­teer­ing for a project,” she said.

The club will hear from past and present Ro­tary Youth Ex­change stu­dents at its Oc­to­ber 8 meet­ing at Joon­dalup Re­sort.

On Oc­to­ber 22, it will host guest speaker Katie Liew, from The Un­der­ground Col­lec­tive, for a talk about home­less­ness at the re­sort, with both meet­ings open from

6pm for a 6.30pm start. The club is also plan­ning a beach clean-up at Mul­laloo Beach on Oc­to­ber 14 be­tween

8.30am and noon.
