District Governor John Sayer

As part of their duties Rotary District Governors are expected to visit every Club in their area during their year in office. Tonight we had the honour of being the first Club in the District to receive the official visit of District Governor John Sayer.

John, who has been involved in the Rotary movement for over 20 years, is looking forward to a year in office which comes at a time when our own charity The Rotary Foundation celebrates its 100th anniversary. Over those 100 years our Foundation has channelled more than one billion dollars to help transform lives around the world.

In 1985 Rotary’s Polio Plus campaign was launched with the aim of eradicating polio from the face of the earth and in this centenary year of the Rotary Foundation there is the very real possibility that this may be the year that we see the world’s last case of polio. John – and the ever present End Polio Now teddy – will be promoting the work of the Rotary Foundation throughout his year in office.
