President’s Message 11 Dec 17

Last week Pete Henry came along to present us with a certificate acknowledging the help of the Rotary Club of Heidelberg with the number plate program. He was also apologetic for the fact that certificates had not been provided for our contributions over the last few years. When it transpired that our guest speaker was…

As we often say our best speakers come from our own membership. Last week was no exception as one of our newest members Noel Sturgeon displayed fascinating skills with the brush as he showed us how to “Meditate via Asian Art’.

We have the name of another potential new member currently being circulated to all. Assuming this succeeds it means that we will have inducted three members in just over three months. A great start for the year, but we all need to do a lot more. Laurie Rose and I joined on the same day…

President’s Message 9 October 17

What a wonderful speaker we had last week! (With due respect to our Rotarian behind the badge of the week before). Jeremy Scott enthralled us all with his tale of riding his pushbike from London to his home in New Zealand. We even ran over time as we listened and saw beautiful photos displayed on…

President’s Message 2 October 17

As we often repeat, the best speakers often come from our own midst and last week was no exception as one of our newest members Noel Sturgeon gave his “Rotarian Behind the Badge” address. Not only did we learn a lot about the man and his story, but he also entertained us with anecdotes and…
