My first Post as President. 001

Hi all,

This is my first post as President. Firstly, I must thank you all for your encouragement.  I am very proud to be part of this club and to be working with such fine people. It is a pleasure to be part of such a club in it’s formation years. To be a member of a club with members who have been such experienced Rotarians with other clubs in D9700 , who then  took the major step to become Charter Members of this E-Club is an absolute pleasure and their advise and encouragement is valuable to me. I have admired these members for many years, it is a privilege to work alongside you all.

I am a new Rotarian with many years as a partner of a Rotarian and I am still amazed that I now can be part of the District working alongside such dynamic people. To all our  members who a relatively new to the club, although you have many years experience in International Projects, it is  a pleasure to have met you and hear your stories, I know together we are going to have such an informative year and we will work hard to complete the next steps to ensure the growth of our club.

My major goal is to grow the club and ensure that we can work as a cohesive team with our projects,  and hopefully include some ideas to help you feel proud of your club to  give you confidence to engage with others in “your little corner of the world”, and hopefully have them join us.

The major ideal of this club is to continue to do community and international service, however, make the meeting schedule and club demands easier and less time consuming for members.  Our club is achieving this ideal and yet we have achieved so much in our service.

We need  to search out others in the community who would like to be Rotarians who don’t know about the our E- club and who would be suited to the less demands of the  club and encourage them to be a part of this new club format. We, the members,  fully understand, that time is precious and  I am a firm believer in the saying,” If you want something done, ask a busy person”.

I am aware that our members are all busy with  their own projects, work and family and yet together we achieve so much with relative ease. I believe this club format is perfect for today’s lifestyle.

Meeting fortnightly is easy and our club is not demanding,  and yet we are able to achieve successful outcomes, along with having such fun and our fellowship is so enjoyable.

For those who a reading this message and are interested or  curious about E-club’s, don’t hesitate to contact me, either by email or phone, I will be happy to answer you questions.

Everyone, members and non- members are welcome to join our meetings, the next one is on the 28th August, 7.30pm. If you would like to join us , contact me and I will send you the link.

Take care and stay well.

Marilyn
