President Glenda’s Notes 5 July 2016
Tuesday, 05 Jul 2016
Thank you for welcoming me to the Presidency. I appreciate the trust that you
First I would like to acknowledge Past President Les Baxter and Barbara. Our
Barbara, on behalf our members I would like you to accept these flowers
I would like to also thank my husband Geoff who without him I would not be
I would also like to thank Dennis Tulk for all his work helping to get our Change-
We now turn to the Rotary year.
Our new District Governor Gerard Blizzard and Fiona are also looking forward to a wonderful Rotary year and it has been wonderful getting to know them.
My plan for the Rotary year is to engage all our members. We are a special club and part of this is due the many senior members who are full of great ideas and offer great support. Use them wisely. It will be great to focus on club projects that involve us working within the community whilst enhancing public image and awareness.
I am also planning a program that will educate and re educate members about Rotary. This is about discovering what Rotary is about and what each committee does. It will involve a short presentation once a month where Paul Billett will talk to us about our responsibilities and involvement and the sense of fellowship that participating actively with Rotary brings everybody. If Paul is not available a Board member will talk about their projects to give an insight into their committee's role.
Fiji was a successful project for the Club. We will once again look into an International Project.
Fundraising will also involve the club as a whole.
I would now like to introduce you to the incoming Board and I ask them to stand up.
Secretary- Krista Preece
Thank you and welcome to a new Rotary Year.
