DISTRICT GOVERNOR NEWS:







A WORD FROM District Governor George Weston



After travelling around our District 9700 for the last couple of months on my DG Visit’s (Kooringal next week and Wagga Wagga Rotaract next year) I must acknowledge how rewarding and enjoyable it has been. I loved meeting everyone and Carol and I were made to feel so very welcome. The things I learnt about the Clubs and Rotary was eye opening to say the least and no matter the size of the Rotary Club, so many ideas big and small - all helping Rotary -  ‘Making a Difference’.


Thank you all so much especially the Presidents, Partners and Boards and I wish you all the very best for your ongoing year.


I would like also to take this opportunity to thank my AG’s who accompanied me on my Visits and also their lovely partners who kept Carol company while the Board Meeting was in progress.


We had the District AGM at Young Golf Club on Sunday 15th October 2017 and again I would like to thank all who could attend. We had a lively debate on matters ranging from types of Membership of Clubs, Club Structure as well as how Foundation works to name a few. It gave me an insight on how we can support and improve the knowledge on Rotary projects to our members and the wider community.


Now that my DG visits are almost completed I would like to let you know that I am available to help with any projects that your Club has and would love to see you all again by visiting your Club or community projects.


Remember -  Rotary Making a Difference


George Weston

DG D9700 2017-2018
