District Celebrations
District Changeover
Did you know that members of our club are arranging the District Changeover as our current District 9820 merges with our neighbouring District 9810 to form a new District 9815?
Geoff and Di Double are creating a great event to celebrate this groundbreaking occasion. It will be a watershed moment for us to meet a whole new bunch of Rotarians that most of us have never met in a relaxed environment and to celebrate the beginning of a brand new District. Our good friend and past Assistant Governor, Colin Byron will be sworn in as the new District Governor.
The event is not far from home and promises a good night out.
There is a booking fee of $4.83 per ticket, making the total cost $89.83 just so you know.
I have already booked, and I am looking forward to seeing how our newest Rotary District will impact our community.

See you there.
