President Sylvia's Pipe Line

Two Bank Holidays during May resulted in our club meeting only once during the month. Activity has been quiet for the club during the month, although, on a personal level, it has been a very busy month, having friends and family visiting.  My President’s Night on the 4th May 2018 was a very enjoyable evening. Appreciation and thanks to Charles Large (Food & Beverages Manager) at Dartmouth Golf & Country Club, and his staff for the excellent meal and service, also to John Conner & Tricia Moore for the very enjoyable entertainment. It was my great pleasure to welcome Sir Jonathan Todd as guest speaker.  Despite one of the guests feeling unwell a few minutes after Sir Jonathan began his talk, resulting in an ambulance being called, Sir Jonathan continued his talk in an adjoining room.  Many thanks to Sir Jonathan Todd, also Steve Kerr, President of Kingsbridge Estuary Rotary Club, for his prompt attention to the casualty, using his first aid and Heart Start knowledge to the casualty, who, I am very pleased to say, recovered well enough to return home following a thorough check by the ambulance staff. Appreciation and thanks to them together with the concern and attention from Charles Large and his team.

Now we look forward to a new month when we resume our twice monthly meetings. Our first meeting on June 11th will be Club Assembly. I am sure you will all, like me, look forward to our Guest Speaker, Laura Cowie, visiting on the 25th June and will talk about a major problem these days, Cyber Crime.

A new Rotary year is almost upon us. It would be appreciated if members have any suggestions or ideas of how we can continue to achieve our motto “Service above Self”, they will bring their thoughts forward.

I hope you have all enjoyed the lovely warm weather we have had, especially, unusually for us, over a Bank Holiday !  My best wishes to you all for a good summer and Bon voyage, safe journeys, if you are travelling on holiday.    I have been struggling with no computer since early May. However did we manage prior to the computer age? Hopefully, my new computer will be installed early in June.
