On assuming the role of President for the year 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2019, at our meeting held on Thursday, 28th June, our incoming President, Liz Butler commented as follows.
The logo for the coming Rotary year is ‘Be the Inspiration’ Well, with the support, hard work and friendship of all Rotarians I’m sure we can be inspired to continue to serve our local community and those farther afield.
We shall continue to include in our programme those projects and events which support both good causes in the local area and internationally.
The main local charity we shall be supporting is Remap. Remap is a national charity which provides specialised technical aids for disabled people where such aids cannot be met by other means. I visited the local branch based in Scarborough and met the two lead volunteers, both former engineers, who have given 40 years of voluntary service to creating special aids for handicapped people in the Scarborough area. The main International charity will be The Jairos Jiri Association based in Harare, Zimbabwe, and we will continue to help the ‘Smiles to Tanzania’ Charity.
Lastly, but by no means least, we will continue to hold our Club’s traditional social events. These will include speakers at our third Thursday in the month meetings, our Charter Night in December for which an organiser is needed, the Club Celebration Night, and the President’s at Home event.
I think we can all look forward to a very active, enjoyable year together,"
