It was a warm welcome for Julian Mazzone at last Tuesday’s meeting. Julian, a former club member, spoke on the merits of his own product, Australian Personal Alarm Systems (APAS). Unlike some other personal alarms for the elderly/disabled the APAS is monitored 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, so there is no chance that a distress call will go unheeded. If for some reason back to base contact fails then an ambulance is automatically dispatched. For those that qualify for government rebates the annual fee for monitoring is as little as $28. For more information see attached PDF. Julian can also offer advice with your own home and business security and alarms. Kayaking on the Port River Pods of Port River dolphins as companions, a weber kettle lunch and beautiful Autumn weather all added up to a perfect day for our club’s MaGilligan Island Experience hosted by the Magill Scouts. Thank you Lindsay for working with Jim Bond to make this event such a memorable day. Athelstone Kindergym – Please see Thank you attached.

Last week’s stand-out performance came from our soccer expert John Capoccia with a perfect 9. Another 12 people were sitting on 8 out of 8 but came unstuck in the last game of the Round. Tipsters to watch this week appear to be “Billy” (Morialta) and “Tony O” (Brownhill Creek) who have scored 6-7-8 over the 1st three rounds. I note, however, that much more attention is required for the Friday night margin. Last week, most people tipped Carlton to win the opening game but the closest tipper was over 5 goals off the mark. This week’s $10 prize, therefore, will go to the tipster who just selects the winner and closest margin on Friday night (St Kilda v Fremantle). After that game, you can relax for the rest of the round. GOOD LUCK. Editor’s Note: Here we go again Lindsay, rewarding mediocrity.

The weekly luncheon of the Rotary Club was held at the Grosvenor on Friday. The chairman of the day was Mr H M Whitham, who introduced the speaker, Brigadier-General S Price Weir. General Weir said so much had been written and said regarding the landing at Gallipoli on April 25 1915, that he did not intend to discuss the question as to whether the landing was a glorious failure or not. The fact remained that the landing was effected, and that it kept thousands of Turks busy there for eight months, who would no doubt have been active on the Western Front in France, had they not been needed on Gallipoli. He described the landing and read an order which was issued by General Sir William Birdwood to the Third Brigade on the eve of the attack. He pointed out that had the troops landed at the points as fixed by General Birdwood, they would have met with many more casualties than they suffered, because the Turks, who had evidently received some indication as to where the troops were to land, had placed out in the sea about 50 yards from the beach, strong fences of 'barbed wire, which would have been almost impossible to negotiate, and the natural remit would have been that the troops would have been mown down by the Turkish machine guns. The troops did not land at these points on account of their boats being carried by a strong tide about a mile north of the intended landing. General Weir concluded by paying a high tribute to General Sinclair MacLagan, who commanded the 3rd Brigade at the landing, and the bravery of the troops under him. 1929 'ROTARY CLUB.', The Advertiser (Adelaide, SA : 1889 - 1931), 27 April, p. 18, viewed 13 April, 2012, http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article73753447

Anzac biscuits are an Aussie classic, so celebrate our National Day of Remembrance with these tasty homemade treats.

Anzac Biscuits • • • • • • • •

1 1/4 cups plain flour, sifted 1 cup rolled oats 1/2 cup caster sugar 3/4 cup desiccated coconut 2 tablespoons golden syrup or treacle 150g unsalted butter, chopped 1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda 1 ½ tbs water

Chewy Anzac Biscuits • • • • • • • •

1 cup (150g) plain flour 1 cup (90g) rolled oats 1 cup (85g) desiccated coconut 3/4 cup (155g) brown sugar 125g butter 2 tbs golden syrup 1 tsp bicarb of soda 2 tbs water

Method Method Preheat oven to 170°C. Place the flour, oats, sugar and coconut in a large bowl and stir to combine. In a small saucepan place the golden syrup and butter and stir over low heat until the butter has fully melted. Mix the bicarb soda with 1 1/2 tablespoons water and add to the golden syrup mixture. It will bubble whilst you are stirring together so remove from the heat. Pour into the dry ingredients and mix together until fully combined. Roll tablespoonfuls of mixture into balls and place on baking trays lined with non stick baking paper, pressing down on the tops to flatten slightly. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown.

High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying by every Rotarian of their occupation as an opportunity to serve society. The application of the ideal service by every Rotarian to their personal, business and community life. The advancement of international understanding, goodwill and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional people united in the ideal of service.
