Message from our President

I have been reflecting on what DG Alma spoke to us about at last weeks meeting and I think she made some great points. I would like to suggest that at the next breakfast that is a club forum we have a further discussion about this topic.
Of course the market is critical to us being able to fund projects as we do however I am very keen to discover exactly how our current club activities match up with peoples initial aspirations on becoming a Rotarian.

Kenyan Rotary clubs sow seeds and reflect on fruits of their labor
Taken from the RI website here.
In 2007, Agnes Kiraithe was invited to speak at the Rotary Club of Muthaiga, in Nairobi. At the time, Kiraithe was the chief administrator of what is now the Kenya Children’s Home, and she had come to talk about the organization, which takes in orphaned children from around the city. After her presentation, she looked around the club.

Rotary District 9810 Training Assembly May 2021
The District Training Assembly is an annual event aimed at informing club office bearers of the latest developments in Rotary in order to better prepare for their role. It’s not just for new office bearers. It’s an opportunity for the more experienced Rotarians to share their experience in a mutually supportive learning environment, aimed at strengthening all our clubs. It’s also a great opportunity for newer Rotarians to network and learn more about the “bigger picture” of Rotary and what happens beyond their club.
On behalf of District Governor Elect Dr Daryl Moran, PDG Tony Monley OAM, D9810 Learning & Development Chair, invites all members of our District to register for one or more sessions in this year’s District Training Assembly.
