This was our club's 59th Changeover meeting which saw President Adrian Bell induct our new President Jim Fraser.
This highlight meeting was held at Beecroft Bowling Club. We were honoured to have newly installed District Governor Kalma McLellan join us. She told us that, although only officially in the job for 2 days, this was her second club visit. She very graciously responded to the toast to Rotary International.
It was a great evening of fellowship, fun and, of course, the formalities including outgoing President Adrian giving a detailed summary of his year in office - this was his second time as president and one which came a year earlier than expected. He then proceeded with the induction of President Jim. Jim, having introduced his board of directors, gave a short address in which he spoke about the opportunities he sees for Rotary and our club to help those in poverty and distress. He illustrated this by referring to people and places he and his wife, Esther, had met and visited during their recent visit to Vietnam and Cambodia.
