PRESIDENT'S COLUMN

 

Greetings all, 
 
Our District Governor, Christine Owen accompanied by our AG Jenny May visited our Club last Monday.  I am grateful to those members who attended - sorry we missed a number of you due to work and travel commitments.    Christine spoke glowingly about the efforts Crows Nest was making towards various projects and outlined initiatives District wise.  She spoke about cyber security within Clubs, a project to collect old mobile phones, the walk  against domestic violence and told us that District 9685 currently has 66 Clubs and 1660 Rotarians. Swapna gleefully announced that our Facebook currently has 1245 followers and 782 Likes.  A mighty effort thanks Swapna.  We welcomed Louise Stablina to the meeting as our 'saucy BBQ buddy', she is great fun and a potential member.  Bill and Lydia are currently in Japan, Mark is off to Europe and Kate is off to Switzerland.  Is anyone left???   See you at the Crows Nest Hotel next Monday ! 
 
Cheers 
 
President Tom
