This year’s changeover on Sunday, 1st July was held at Eastern Golf Club in the Yarra Valley, continuing our theme of a relaxed lunch at a different venue.
We were pleased to welcome our new District Governor, Russell Gurney and his wife Shelly together with our outgoing Assistant Governor, Michelle Oscar and our incoming Assistant Governor, Christina Chia along with family and friends.
After presenting his report on our Club’s achievements during his year in office (refer to our Annual Report for details), President Paul Cassidy presented three Paul Harris Fellows in recognition of individual contributions; a PHF for Michele Post and a Sapphire PHF for Jim Sly for their “over and above” contribution to our Club, and a Sapphire PHF to Carolynn McManus for her contributions to the Rotary Foundation over the last 10 years.
Outgoing President Paul Cassidy then inducted Annette Haworth as the 51st President of the Rotary Club of Boronia. Annette briefly outlined her plans and vision for the year ahead, which was greeted with a show of support by everyone present.
