CHANGEOVER DINNER HELD ON 26.06.17 AT AVOCA TREETOPS RESTAURANT
The dinner was a great night filled with many speeches and Powerpoint presentations. The toast to Rotary International was given by AG David Rivett and Filippa Jeppsson Wall our exchange student from Sweden gave a wonderful farewell PP presentation. It was great to see the three host families present including our club exchange student Abbey McGill. Sandy Hunt-Sharman was surprised to be awarded a Paul Harris fellowship but much deserved for her tireless contribution to our club. President John was presented by PDG and Australian Rotary Health Director, Graeme Davies with a Rotary Health friendship pin. President John Heuston talked about the year in review before the induction of our new President Christine Owen. Christine showed a video from the new incoming RI President, Ian H.S. Riseley who is a member of the Rotary Club of Sandringham, Victoria. Christine talked about the new theme of ‘Making a Difference’ and how the Rotary club of Kincumber can make a difference in the new Rotary Year of 2017-18.
The African High Tea was a huge success with lots of colourful guests coming through the door including Sue Lane who got a prize for being one of the best dressed. President John did a great job serving cups of teas as did the rest of the Kincumber Rotary fellows. Lots of prizes from the raffle and silent auction were There were stalls outside where you could purchase purses and bags made from Africa & Sustainable Cambodia, Fijian inspired fabric bags and lots more.
