BigQuiz organisers are given due recognition

Changeover Lunch - 2006

Our new President Alma Dender was piped in by her father John MacMurchie in true Scottish style.

The formal proceedings started early with an opening message from our District Governor Ian Murray. Ian encouraged members, reminding them of the marvelous work which Rotary has undertaken over the years. Over $1.2 billion in funds have been raised by the Rotary Foundation for charitable works. The polio plus program has made a significant impact on many developing countries.

The Sunday Roast by Laurie Glossop accused the past president Geoff Ross of being a member of ASIO with all the travel he has been undertaking throughout the year. Only to find out that Geoff actually had been a member of there!

A presentation was given to Jane Guillaumier for her marvellous work on the BigQuiz, and Laurie Dender got the silver wand and gold star award for his work on the club's web site.

Geoff Ross presents his message of thanks

Laurie Glossop fined just about everybody

Our 100% attendance awards were numerous, and Geoff acknowledged the much hard work of so many of our club members. Kellie and Robyn with YQuyet, and John Boxall and the International committee with their work in East Timor and Cambodia.

Alma Dender as our incoming President gave a very moving and inspirational speech to the members with her vision for the upcoming year. To increase membership, and to consolidate and improve the work of the club.

Kirsty Shade presented the club with a cheque for over $6,100 as 20% of the proceeds from the BigQuiz, part of which will be sent to the Rotary Cord Blood Bank project.

The photographs for the luncheon were kindly provided by Ron VanderWal who also led the speech to Australia... or was it toasters?

The food was delicious with a view over a white capped winter sea, conversation enjoyable and atmosphere fun...
