President's Message

 George and I, together with Past President Peter McCloskey and Pat, attended the 70th birthday celebrations of the Rotary Club of Gosford.  There were over 90 guests and we all had a wonderful evening enjoying good food and fellowship. Congratulations to Gosford Rotary for a memorable 70 years of service through Rotary.

Don't forget own Christmas Party  is only three weeks away on 16th December.  If you are going and haven't let me know yet there is another opportunity in this week's attendance notice form.  I do need to let the restaurant know numbers soon.

This week we have our Annual General Meeting.  Nominations can still be accepted for positions.  If you haven't given any thought to nominating why not give it a try.  It can be very rewarding.

Christmas Tree sales start next Saturday.  Past President Torin will be getting out the roster soon.

It was very nice to read the kind words that our Primary Citizenship Awards guest, Yasmin Cately, wrote in the Wyong Regional Chronicle this week.   You can see her article further in this Newsletter.

 Until next time

Yours in Rotary

Last Week
