Rotary Christmas Celebration
Fifty Rotarians, families and friends had a wonderful night at Rotary. The power returned just at Ross set up the generators. We strted by recognizing the outstanding efforts of two of our Rotarians. John Monteath was recognised with a Paul Harris Award and Bob Flowers with a sapphire pin added to his Paul Harris award.

The presentation of Paul Harris Fellow recognition is The Rotary Foundation’s way of expressing its appreciation for a substantial contribution to its humanitarian and educational programs. It is named for our founder, Paul Harris, a Chicago lawyer who started Rotary International with three business associates in 1905.

Recipients are designated to receive this recognition as a special expression of appreciation from the Rotary Club of Alexandra.

A world of peace and goodwill comes closer to reality today as they become a Paul Harris Fellows. It is because of gifts like these made in their honour that The Rotary Foundation is able to carry out an array of programs that achieve beneficial changes in our world: improved living conditions, increased food production, better education, wider availability of treatment and rehabilitation for sick and disabled, new channels for the flow of international understanding and brighter hopes for peace.
A contribution to The Rotary Foundation is an investment in the ideal of goodwill, peace and understanding. That is an ideal held high by Rotarians the world over, and one that they clearly shares. Working with such individuals of goodwill, we believe the ideal will become a reality.

Special thanks to Joan and the other ladies from the golf club for their outstanding catering.

Again the singers led us in a wondering selection of carols joined by our popular barman Neil Robinson.
