SPEECH 29TH JUNE 2015
Good evening one and all, and what a pleasure it is to be in this seat once again doing Rotary’s work.
first task is to thank our retiring president
George Rivas for taking the helm in our hour of need, and leading
us through the maze of activities we undertook last
year. Mild weather at Christmas gave us a warm and cosy feeling
whilst we drove our reindeer through the misty hills, and our youth
activity flourished with George’s encouragement in shoe boxes,
Christmas Story, Technology Tournament, leaving but one major challenge
to find a way of getting Young Chefs out of the Misbourne School!
for all you have done George in keeping us together as a team fit for
us toast your health as we ease you into your retirement chair.
couldn’t have done it without you!
we look forward to the year ahead, we take note of the tasks our Global
RI President Ravi Ravindran’s tasks has set us, including the
Presidential Citation. Not surprisingly we are asked to increase
membership by one, and to engage a female member into our club. This
year we are asked to submit the aims of the club to Rotary Club Central,
which, if done, will provide ‘Head Office’ with both our aims and
our achievements as the goes bye.
year’s annual conference for District 1260 is to be Torquay on 20-22nd
must mention my plans to create a Satellite club with in our area, and
work has already begun to establish some interest within the Prestwood
community. This isn’t going to be a quick fix, but should restore the
strength of Rotary within our community.
to a great year ahead!
Gavin Plews, president Rotary club of Great Missenden and District.
