On Monday night our club presented a PHF Sapphire pin to PP Patrick McLaughlin via video and with the help of the members of our centennial twin club Hout Bay. President John Routley form Hout Bay organised the presentation and from all accounts it went down very well. Here in Patrick’s words are his feelings on receiving this award form Coolamon:
“In my 31 years of Rotary, and probably in my life as a whole, no such a
great thing happened to me in Rotary. I shall treasure that surprise until
the going down of the sun.
This must have cost your club a bloody fortune. I am embarrassed. We, the
team in Hout Bay, Butch, Allan, Don, everybody, just did “our thing” but I
thank you from my heart. This award came at a good time in my life and I
feel so proud.”
Here is the video that we “sent” to Hout Bay.
