Team Presidents led by Trish Smith
Theme for the Year: WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER
Because of COVID It has been a very difficult time for all service clubs, including our own. Although we have been back to normal meetings for most of this past year there are still some members who have felt it unwise to meet, have been ill with the virus, or have had to isolate and so missed meetings.
Despite all the problems we had a wonderful year under the leadership of President Jackie Prince with lots of fun and good times as well as the many projects undertaken and to top it all we have inducted several new members.
This means that we have a lot to live up to this coming year which will be a very different year to the traditional sort of year that we usually look forward to.
Because of unforeseen circumstances our incoming president could not take up her role as president, and, as it was close to the start of our new year we had to come up with a plan quickly.
I feel that the plan that we have put in place will make this year a different, exciting and more inclusive year. Although I have agreed to be the president, I will not be running the show on my own. The whole executive committee have planned the year with different members stepping up to organise events and Host meetings. All the routine jobs that usually fall to the president have been shared out amongst us and I believe this will let members, who have never stood for office before, see just how much support they will get if they feel that they could do so in future and how rewarding it can be.
So here’s to a wonderful 2022-2023 and remember: WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER
