Last Club Assembly on 9/2
We had a great turn up last meeting with 26 Rotarians attending and 15 proxies given. Assembly Chair PP Filipe took over the Chair after the regular meeting was adjourned at 9.30pm. Pres. Sam and officers gave the half yearly report on Foundation, Membership, Services and club finances.
There were lots of discussions on the issue of whether we should change to 3 regular meetings a week. We would decide at the next Club Assembly when more data would have to be collected on whether the change would increase membership
A big congratulation to PN Elvo who was elected President Nominee 2018/19 with 32 votes for him.
