Congratulations to our award winners:
100% attendance John Ritchie and Vicki van den Bergen
Paul Harris Fellows Lyn Beckwith, Vicki V,  John Henderson and Shalini Penny.
Horses Arse award expertly presented by Sergeant Gayle to her bestie Lyn “the Covid spreader to new prospective members” Beckwith. 
It was also an honor to have PDG Daryl award Gus his PHF, and Ken to Daryl his PDG pin. 
Shalini we again thank you for your wonderful year and the incredible achievements presented in the Annual Report. Well done Kristine Ash for your efforts with compiling the excellent Annual Report. Wow is all I can say about what our Club achieved during the year!
Well done to Kristine Ash for the video of our Club’s year in pictures, my boy Nicholas and Colin Brown’s beautiful performance of Imagine; my Dad’s wonderful MC performance; Ken’s presentation of his appreciation of our Club’s involvement and support of his DG year, and of course the Spangles … twice!
Whilst members come and go for a variety of reasons, we are all custodians of our Club with the simple objective of enriching peoples’ lives, from those of our own members mainly through care and laughter, to the wider and global community mainly through compassion, manpower and fundraising.  It is an honour that I stand with you as a Rotarian, and I can’t wait to share this year with you all.
