I would like to pass on my congratulations to our four inductees on Wednesday, 1 November, 2017.  Each of them are equally fabulous additional assets to the Rotary Club of Berwick and really look forward to sharing our Club with them.
Our four new Members are: Chery Zuhlsdorff, Gary Castricum, David Cutler and Gaetano Fina.
With each new member our Club is strengthened by the skills and experience they bring with them. While we are here to "Make a Difference to the World", we are also here to have a bit of fun along the way. Now the fun begins! 
The new additions to our Club are the result of hard work and enthusiasm from our existing members, for which I would like to extend a huge thank you to.  Firstly, a quite recent Member, Di Scheepers, has proven to be a valuable asset to our Club.  Di encouraged her sister, Cheryl Zuhlsdorff, to attend our weekly Club meetings, which came to fruition resulting in Cheryl joining our Club.  Cheryl was instrumental in RCOB being able to continue our much loved Farmer’s Market, due to putting her hand up to be the one to organising the market enabling it to continue with new ideas and enthusiasm.
Gary Castricum decided that he now has time to join.  His father, Peter, was a very long standing Member of the Rotary Club of Berwick and, as a  result of that, Gary, (and his Mum Mia), had the intention of joining RCOB for a long time and now finds that he has time to commit to Rotary.
Viv and Jim Armstrong have a neighbour, David Cutler.  Viv and Jim have taken the time with David to talk to him about Rotary.  They created an interest for David to attend one of our weekly meetings, resulting in David enjoying what he was experiencing, came to several more meetings and decided to become a Member.
Darius Mikolaiewski was responsible for Gaetano Fina coming to one of our weekly meetings.  As a result of that, Gaetano, also enjoying what he was experiencing, decided to continue attending our meetings and, as a result, is now also a Member of our Club.
An enormously big thank you to Di Scheepers,  Peter and Mia Castricum, Viv and Jim Armstrong and Darius Mikolaiewski for their outstanding efforts for introducing these exciting new Members to the Rotary Club of Berwick.
