CHANGEOVER DINNER HELD AT TREETOPS AVOCA

The Rotary Club of Kincumber installed Lillias Bovell as the 2018-2019 President at its changeover dinner on 2 July. Lillias, who returned from the Rotary International Convention in Toronto Canada on 1 July said she was keen to include community involvement in Club activities during her year as President and promote environmental initiatives.

Lillias thanked the outgoing President, Christine Owen and her Board for their leadership during the previous year. The event was also attended by District Governor, Peter Ward (The Entrance) and representatives from the Kincumber Neighbourhood Centre. Entertainment was provided by two Youth in Performing Arts students.

This year’s Rotary International theme “Be the Inspiration” is exciting Lillias says. “It challenges us all to promote the service ideals which are the foundation of Rotary projects Locally, Nationally and worldwide”.

ROTARY FOUNDATION FUNDRAISER

A fund raiser was held for The Rotary Foundation where members came in International costume. Thanks to rotarian Jan Brown for a great effort.

The back deck of the Kincumber Hotel was brought to life and themed with international flags, artefacts and colourful tablecloths, along with a display of raffle prizes and photos all to complement the costumed guests and members. Truly multicultural! The FUN’d night, brainchild of MC Jan Brown, was a real success. Countries represented included India, Cambodia, Vietnam, Myanmar, France, Mexico, USA, Argentina, Sri Lanka, Australia and Fiji. International holiday tales were enjoyed along with video clips of international Rotary projects. The night concluded with dancing and lots of laughter. KIncumber Rotary Club raised $500 for the Rotary Foundation.

PRIDE OF WORKMANSHIP AWARDS  –  Treetop Restaurant, Avoca Beach Resort

The Club’s Annual Pride of Workmanship Awards was held at the Treetops Restaurant. The venue is perfect for the presentation of these awards. Rotarians, awardees and guests took advantage of an extended period prior to the “call to order” for socialising and enjoying the varied and plentiful canapes on offer.
It must be noted the table arrangement allowed each of the Pride of Workmanship nominees to sit with their work colleagues, family and supporters as well as Rotarians. There wasn’t a head table as such which underpinned the relaxed, inclusive and dignified tone of the evening.

As MC, Rotary Club of Kincumber Vocational Services Chairman, PP Ernie Altman welcomed all in attendance and gave a brief explanation of the awards and drew attention to the broad vocational spectrum of the recipients.  President Christine welcomed each of the recipients in turn as well as their guests, District 9685 Vocational Services Chair, PP Bobby Redman and our sponsors, Bendigo Bank, Kincumber Branch represented by Martin Cressey and Michelle Clague.

PP Bobby Redman gave a short explanation of the Pride of Workmanship Award which was first presented by the Rotary Club of Pennant Hills (D9685) over 30 years ago and is now world-wide. She congratulated the recipients and wished everyone a lovely evening. MC Ernie reiterated the POW epigraph mentioned by Bobby, Do it once, do it right, build a better nation.

The following is a brief summary of the details in printed program. The Awards were presented by
President Christine and captured by photographer Peter Rea.
