with thanks to Brian Negus
President Keith welcomed District Governor Russell Gurney and Assistant Governor Lyndon and many guests to our mini change-over from Keith Anderson to Bruce Evans.
It was also an extra special night as we inducted Edwin Micallef as a new member of our club, with his wife Wendy joining in the celebration. Edwin was a member of the Rotary Club of Mornington for 25 years, and also the District 9820 Insurance Representative in recent years.
Brian Negus announced that Echo3 with member Felix Wong has transferred to Corporate membership. Echo3 will redevelop and host the Club website as part of the Memorandum of Understanding the Club has negotiated with Echo3. Felix will continue his management of the website.
Brian also introduced Carol Nakhoul to the Club, who along with husband Sarkis are proposed Corporate members with their business Delta Home Solutions.
District Governor Russell spoke about the Multi-District conference that has just been held and the features which made it a success. In particular, the Rotary International President’s Special Representative Stephanie Urchick was very impressive, a great speaker and related to a broad range of Rotarians, and especially young people at the conference and during extra visits that Russell arranged.
Lastly, Keith Anderson passed the Presidential mantel to Bruce Evans, who gave an inspirational address drawing on his many years in Rotary, but importantly looking forward to our next four months and beyond.
