G ‘day Rotarians of District 9700
Well August went fast too fast and hard to keep up with everything that is going on right now.  September is full of promise as Susan and I move around our clubs.  September is designated as Basic Education and Literacy month.  A good time to see where we can improve the lives of those that only need a hand up to a better life.
I met a new “young” Rotarian of 6 months last week in Lockhart.  Bob Anderson who is just turning 80 years young and Bob looks 20 years younger.  So it is never too late to join our wonderful organisation.
The NSW Inspirational Women’s Awards were announced on Sunday 26th August and hearty congratulations go to Elizabeth Russ and Deidre Moulden winners in their category and to the other two finalists in their category, Ruth Browne and Rochelle Ashcroft.  To Lynnette Bullen our D9700 Coordinator, our sincere thanks for the hard work leading up to this event.
As time is moving so fast it is now time to start putting our plans into action for 2018-2019.  Especially the project for a Centennial Capsule to raise funds for Legacy Australia and the Polio Plus Bike Relay around D9700.  More information on how these two projects will be conducted coming soon.
Great news in that PRIVP Anne L. Matthews from South Carolina has been appointed to the Griffith 2019 Conference as President Barry Rassin’s Personal Representative.  To have Anne is an honour indeed for our District.
Yours in Rotary
DG John Glassford
