President’s Message 27 July 2020

Greetings Members and Friends

On Wednesday we had the District Governor, David Clark visit us, along with Berowra Rotary Club members. The meeting was MC’d by the Assistant to the DG, David Rivett from the Rotary Club of Gosford North. We were happy to host this event and thank all who attended this interesting evening. Thanks must go to PP Bobby Holder for ensuring the evening went smoothly via Zoom.

We have an interesting line up of speakers to come along to our meetings, and this week we will also have some guests coming along from our new marketing and promotions team. Please make them feel welcome. Whilst tomorrow night will not be the night to ask them questions (they are only a newly formed committee and our guests!) I will ask that any questions you might have for them be directed my way for now. We will ask the committee to give us an updated report in due course.  

Please remember to submit interesting news you may have heard regarding Rotary to Simon to put into our monthly bulletin. Thank you to those directors who have submitted their report already. I urge those others to submit this week to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

One month into the new Rotary year has already passed, and it has gone by very quickly. Happy birthday to all those born in July, I hope you have a safe and happy year ahead. Notices of birthdays and anniversaries will appear on our calendar, and our welfare officer, Sadia will be sending out birthday cards as birthdays come about.

I was able to contact Bev H and she confirmed that she can only have one visitor per day to Mt Wilga. For those who wish to visit, please contact the hospital to make an appointment to visit. For those who cannot get to see her, I am sure she would appreciate a text message to let her know we are thinking of her. We also hope for a speedy recovery for Anita B, who is now recovering from her surgery. Hopefully her recovery will ensure a pain free future from here on in. 

A few reminders: Subs are now overdue, please pay as soon as possible. Directors – please submit your news to Simon. Otherwise, to all members, have a happy week and stay safe. Stay tuned for our exciting speaker at our meeting and remember that despite all that is happening in the world around us, Rotary Opens Opportunities.
