1.  D9705 CONFERENCE 2024

Having now attended 20 DISCONS since I became a member of CRC I can testify to the benefits of attending our annual DISCON.  It looks like with regionalisation that the 2024 DISCON could be the last.  Attendance to our DISCONS has been dropping for some time now even with the merging of D9700 and D9710 with over 2,000 members, the DISCONS have not been supported.

So do yourselves a favour and register for the 2024 DISCON in Mittagong.


We heard from Tracy Ochieng this week and Tracy is going well.

Tracy is looking to get a scholarship to study in Europe or the USA for her masters degree.  Tracy is not looking for help form our club and will move onwards with Kenyan Rotary clubs.  Tracy’s future is looking wonderful and we are very proud of her success to date.


January is Vocational Service Month
