Club Cluster 3 DG Visit Event : PORTRAIT of a thrillseeker Part 3 on the District Governor rollercoaster : Club Cluster 3 DG Visit Event

16 Sep

 DG Rotary Message and  a Peace keynote

Today you are all part of a historical initiative in this District. A club cluster DG Visit Event in D9920.

Truly Change and Continuity in motion as we clamber on the DG rollercoaster to unleash our potential –  indeed- you can say to GO FOR GOLD in this Olympic year

I want to thank all of you for making this happen and special thanks to AG Ian and Presidents ( in no particular order..there is no favouritism) of the Rotary Clubs of Half Moon Bay, Pohutukawa Coast, Somerville Howick and Waiheke..Pres Marian Heywood,Mark Anderson, Philip Wilson,Greg Ogg  and AG Ian please stand and  take a bow. “I CANT DO IT ALONE. THANK YOU ALL FOR GETTING BEHIND ME.” Let me say at this point that this CHANGE in tradition does not preclude me coming to your clubs separately for special events or by invitation. In fact this is the opportunity that Sharon and I are hoping for, so we can return to meet and get our message and updates  to our Rotarians in an informal and personal basis.

I must especially recognise the PARTNERS – thank you for giving up another Sunday lunch for Rotary.

I would like to acknowledge our special guest Kevin Clements who is here all the way up from Dunedin in support of this initiative and can truly say I am delighted to be his warm-up act – especially as his interests so closely align with our year’s theme.

    Always so “magnifique”. I never miss a word.
    PEACE THROUGH SERVICE is the only actions we have to remember during our life.
