Foundation Link Evening

Don’t forget Link Evening with the cut-off date for bookings being 28 February.

We have 2 very high quality speakers with a different slant on Foundation. Firstly, Rob Avery-Phipps is unique in being our very first (but perhaps not last) outgoing scholar to China. He added to the academic year with many exploits before and after so don’t miss his story. As if that were not enough we have, for the very first time ever a worldwide Alumni Award receiver in Harminder Dua. He will tell us of how Rotary added to his life and the work he has gone on to do since.

Contact your club Foundation chair or secretary for booking form, or if you still have problems please contact Mick White District Foundation Chair directly.

Thankyou for attending conference

As District Governor 2013/2014 I would like to thank all delegates who attended this District’s 42nd Annual Conference. From the feed-back we have had from you it seems it was a great success with the quality of the speakers, the clean comedian John Evans, wonderful entertainment from the violinist Kate Chruscicka, the fantastic stage show “That’ll Be The Day”, and of course our special guest at the lunch on Saturday the Rt Hon Michael Portillo.

We did promise you it would be sunny in Scarborough for Conference and although it was not as hot as two years ago at least it was dry and considering the awful storms we have had since, we were very lucky with the weather.

We reintroduced the Saturday afternoon breakout sessions including a Chocolatier for our partners, and tried something new such as finishing on Sunday with that outstanding entertainer Richard Digance.

I mentioned a couple of items in the Conference Registration Form many months ago that I would like to share with you again. First of all, as Rotarians you work hard for others throughout the year; you deserve a relaxing break. From the feedback you benefitted from being revitalised and inspired. I am sure that this Conference’s content will continue to inspire you over the next year. Secondly, this year’s Conference theme was “Together WE WILL Achieve”. I firmly believe working together we can, nay will, achieve so much more. Continue and expand the tremendous work you already do both in your local communities and also overseas. Rotary needs us all to build the future foundations of our wonderful organisation, let’s do it together!

Thank you once again for the support you gave me at Conference, the BUZZ and energy from you, the Audience, enabled all those performers ‘on stage’ to raise their game, making a good Conference great!

Peter M.

Next year’s Conference will be held in Llandudno on 3rd – 5th October 2014
