A Note From The President
Last Tuesday it was a pleasure to welcome our Past District Governor Shia Smart and her husband Duncan. As it was a partners and guests night we also welcomed Lianne Liao, Yvonne McKenzie, Terry Edwards and Marianne Mooney. It was great to say hello to our friends at long last – and Natalie’s as usual accommodated us very well in the larger space to give us room to socially distance and obey our Covid19 rules.
I mentioned that I had been in contact with the RC Commonwealth Quezon City who Zoomed with us recently – to give them our best wishes following the recent typhoons and terrible flooding in Manila and other parts of the Philippines.
I reminded members that we will be holding a board meeting on 1st December and reports should be in to Secretary David along with any issues members wish to raise for discussion.
Our Foundation Chair Kevin Hall had the pleasant task of presenting our latest club Centurion Stephen Ennor with his Certificate and Badge.
Chair Gavin introduced PDG Shia who had several awards for our club – firstly a District Citation which was presented to PP Gavin Birch and P VP David George for completing the required number of goals in Rotary Club Central.
Shia also presented the club, through our Foundation Chair Kevin Hall, with a Certificate of Appreciation for our financial contribution to The Rotary Foundation for End Polio Now.
Shia then went on to give a summary of how the District has coped with covid 19 restrictions and it was encouraging to hear that so many clubs have used their imaginations to find different ways to fundraise.
It was a pleasure to see Shia and her ever smiling face at our meeting and we are grateful to her for giving up her time.
Yet another award was made to cap off the evening – (see below) President Judy read out a letter from DG Alma.
It was an award winning night and for our small club we pack a mighty punch and should be proud of our efforts.
