Presidents Report 14/5/2014.

Welcome to my report.

Last week’s meeting, what a night it turned out to be, full of surprises.

Partner’s night, fun night and roll change night.

A few Thank You’s.

To you all for coming along and making it such a good night.

To Helen for coming up with the idea and baking your famous fruit cake for the raffles.

To Kathy and Marline for running the meeting and making it so entertaining. Kath created another great trivia and word puzzle and great sergeant session Marl’s.

To David for attending the attendance desk, great job. I knew you were a great choice to do this job.

To Graeme for running the raffles, Great job.

To Beryl for your beautiful flower arrangement. It was spectacular.

To Alex for your carpet piece for raffles.

To Vicki and Gerald for fruit baskets for raffles.

To Leslie for the chocolate parcels for raffles.

All in All another great job by team Rotary Nambour 76.

Great to see Ron and Jill come along.

We had a wonderful guest speaker Leslie with Part 2 of your life in Japan. What a great insight into life in another country and how you lived there. Thank you again for sharing your story with us. Can’t wait to hear the next chapter.

I was very surprised, overwhelmed and honored to be named a Paul Harris Fellow. I just couldn’t believe it. It was extra special to have Ross and Bill do the presentation, they're like the god fathers of Rotary in our club. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Kath for all her support, couldn’t do this job without her. Thank you to our board members and you all for making our club such a friendly club. It’s like a big family. It’s a team effort and a great team we make.
