Handover Meeting

The first week in July sees the changing of the guard in Rotary Clubs all around the world as new Presidents and their Councils takeover the running of their Clubs

Tonight saw Immediate Past President John Francis hand over the chain of office to our new President local jeweller Ian Rigby.

New Rotary International President Sakuji Tanaka of Japan has chosen ‘Peace through Service’ as the Rotary theme for 2012 – 2013.  By helping others to meet the basic needs of health care, sanitation, food, and education President Tanaka believes that through our work as Rotarians we help to build the foundation for a more peaceful world. President Ian will look over the coming year to enhance the Club’s presence in our  local community in support of President Tanaka’s theme.

Ian was pleased to welcome visitors from many of our neighbouring Clubs and over the course of the next week Club members will attend Handover meetings at Clubs throughout the region to celebrate the start of new Rotary year with them.
