President's Message

It was a great pleasure to welcome guests Helen Hellyer and Robyn Deane to our meeting.  I certainly hope to see you both at many more.

Last week's meeting was a very full one Firstly we had a special general meeting to elect our President for the next Rotary year and I would like to congratulate Mitch Cowan on his election.  Mitch will be filling the President's chair for the second time and I know that we are going to be in for a very exciting and successful 2016/17 Rotary year.

The second part of our meeting was a celebration of Rotary's 111th birthday. We did this with a birthday cake and I asked the member at the meeting that has been with the club the longest, Ken Smith, to cut the cake.  Ken also took the floor for the third part of the meeting and provided us with an interesting and informative history of our club.

This week I have another engagement I must attend so our newly appointed President Elect will be chairing the meeting.  This is fortunate as our guest speaker is Jan Richens from Central Coast Local Health.  I say fortunate because Mitch is the organiser of our race day and Jane represents Wyong Hospital which will be the major recipient of the funds raised on that day.

I know that you will enjoy this week's meeting and I look forward to being with you again next week.

Yours in Rotary

Jenny Abourizk
