President's Message

Hi All,

Apologies due to work commitments, I am unable to submit a Presidents Message this week.

I look forward to catching up with the Board at 5.30pm on the 15th February at Hali Board Room. Debbie and I are working hard to secure some good guest speakers, but unfortunately it is very hard to get a commitment at the start of a New Year, we will keep trying.

Reminder we have the Annual District Conference on the 11th March and for our 2017-18 Board Members President Elect PETS training on the 1st April and District Assembly for all Board Members on the 23rd April. 

NOTE: Cabaret at the Hali, planned for 12th February has been cancelled. Jenny will advise of new dates. 

Look forward to catching up on Wednesday. 

Kind Regards


Yours in Rotary
