PRESIDENT’S REPORT 2ND APRIL 2019
Posted By Mark Buckingham
Our Pride of Workmanship night held on the 2nd April at DCC saw three happy recipients receive their awards. This year they were all women, young and full of enthusiasm. It was good to see they brought their family and friends to share the presentations.
The quality of hard working people in our community is often overlooked. It is good that Dural Rotary can give credit where credit is due.
Ray Williams joined us and gave a good reply to the nominees. He is excited about being a grandfather for the first time.
A big Rotary thank you to our Rotary members who helped set up the room with Rotary signs, it was a good back drop for the photos taken of the awardees family and friends.
Stay tuned for the upcoming dates of our meetings. The next one is a combined meeting at Spring Fields on Monday 15th April, with the guest speaker Ricardo Bosi. Give Ivan your intention to attend or not. Very important.
Mark has some interesting guest speakers coming up. Pay attention if the dates change to suite guest speaker commitments.
It’s time to start planning our change over night. Put forward any ideas you would like to include on the night.
See you on 15th April at Spring Fields.
President 2018 – 2019
