This has been the week of changeovers in that I have now attended Corrimal’s, on the 13th June, Illawarra Sunrise’s on 24 June and last Saturday the District Changeover so that I have had sufficient changeovers for the year. All changeovers were pleasant and friendly and all were run to time or close to it. Corrimal’s new President is Kay Mireylees and our new District Governor is Sue Haywood. I was surprised with the number of Rotarians who head District positions as they were presented to the Changeover. I counted 13 positions covering Australian Honours Advisory Council Liaison Member through to the two Webmasters.
On Friday we returned to our normal Friday Meeting at which there were 8 members and one Guest (Rhys). The meeting was carried out at one table with the lectern being discarded to make it more cosy. The new framework of meetings was discussed with emphasis on where we would have our first social meeting. I offered some venues where Christmas in July was being held but after much discussion, the night has been changed for this month only to support St Mary’s Interact Club’s Murder Mystery Night. So all members are encouraged to purchase tickets and to attend that night.
I also take pleasure in announcing the offer of our member Norm Miller to take on the position of President Elect. I took this information to our regular club meeting Friday 29 June to have the offer endorsed by club members and it was. So this club now has a President Elect but still has to fill the position of Secretary of the club very quickly. Members please consider coming forward to nominate yourself for this position.
Have a safe week and I look forward to joining with you all on Friday.
