INDUCTION. Bryan Anderson, outgoing president of the Paarl Rotary Club, recently inducted Hester Visagie as the new president of the club. The ceremony was viewed by members on Zoom.
 
A year of  Zoom
 
To say that this past year has been a challenge is stating the obvious. This time last year we were all anticipating, or hoping, for a quick end to the pandemic and return to normal business, said outgoing president Bryan Anderson in his farewell speech.
 
OUTING. Members of Paarl Rotary and their partners enjoyed an outing to a local restaurant during the lull after the second wave of the Covid pandemic. The third wave then arrived and it was back to hard lockdown again.
EPIC. Many interesting guest speakers have visited the Paarl Rotary Club this year. Adventurer Riaan Manser (pictured here with his wife Vasti) recently gave an entertaining talk on his many epic travels. He has travelled around the continent of Africa on a bike, kayaked around Madagascar and Iceland, and rowed with Vasti from Morocco to New York and from California to Hawaii. His travels have landed him two Guinness Book records and have made him a sought-after speaker and writer.
WARM. Paarl Rotary has donated 100 blankets to Valcare’s Love your Valley winter blanket project. With Rotarian Deon Erasmus at the handover are Liesl Tolkin (left) and Ronlyn Zwaan of Valcare, who will distribute the blankets among needy local educare centres.
