I must comment on our Vocational Visit this week, in writing, and again thank Paul and his staff for the breakfast, informative talks by his staff from various disciplines and the tour of the hospital. I think it was one of our best visits done since I have been a member. To cap it off we were able to induct Paul officially into our club, with some of his staff present, at his work site. This worked well.
I also presented Stephen Swan with his Directors badge as Stephen agreed to be the Director of Rotary Foundation for the remainder of the year. Both of these tasks make the job of President that much easier to cope with during the year and to see the great roll up of members for this visit, I thank you.
It was good to see Ian Fargher return, even if he didn’t get a lift to the meeting, as was arranged, but he came on his own and attended none the less. I hope to see Ian’s return and to that end Stephen and myself contracted with Ian to attend at least 4 meetings out of the next 6. I hope for 6 out of 6 with then a continuance to come to our meetings.
I attended Bunnings along with Carol Jeffs and will fully report on that at our next meeting.
Up and coming events are :
That we have a Board Meeting on Tuesday 12 September and
I have a President’s Meeting on Thursday 14 September.
Just a reminder that we have a Philippines meeting on Friday 22 September and
we have our District Governor on Friday 29 September coming to our meeting.
Once again thank you to all those members who attended our vocational visit and I hope to see those numbers repeated again and again on upcoming Fridays
