Clubs across the District key up for Christmas
Before I write anything else today, I want to say thank you to you all for all the work you put in to raise money for the Philippines. What a fantastic effort. Once again Rotary has stepped up to the mark to help the people so badly affected by this awful disaster. You have helped both with the immediate needs and also given money to the District fund to help provide something substantial in the near future. We are looking for a suitable project and will keep you fully informed as to what this will be when a decision has been made. You make me proud and humble at the same time. Being your DG is such a privilege.
This is probably the busiest time of year for most of us, as we plan and prepare for the festive season, look forward to seeing our families and friends and celebrating with parties and plenty of food and wine, but because you are Rotarians you will find the time to run your seasonal events, turn out for collections, help with food banks, make up Christmas parcels, man car parks. You will have heard me say this before but I will say it again.
So thank you everyone for everything you do.
We are amazing, Rotary is amazing, think about what you do in your club and multiply that by more than 34,000 clubs word wide – without Rotary this world would be a much poorer place.
I wish you all a very merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
