Message from the Club President

A very successful primary school quiz was held on 2 May, when 8 schools attended along with a goodly number of supporters (see photographs below). Thanks to Yvonne and her helpers.  The quiz was won by Crown School Inverness who, along with the runners up, went through to the District final in Aberdeen where the winner was Newport.

It is amazing how fast time passes. It will soon be the end of my Presidential year during which I was proud to welcome new members.

The Club is in good heart with members enjoying fun and fellowship every week.

It has been a year of reorientation and change. The Club does not have the large amount of income that it formerly had with the Nairnshire Challenge. The Club now has to relate intended donations to its ability to raise funds. A new approach to our financial management has been put in place. Budgets for the financial year have been drawn up and have been given by council for activities, especially those concerned with the provision of financial assistance.

In many cases - especially those where requests have been made for substantial sums - funds may need to be raised specifically to meet those requests. A process of assessment has been defined so that responsible Team Leaders can present the case for approval by Council.  For a large project, the fund raising may entail a number of years.

The District’s magazine Rotary First, shows the many and varied activities of clubs in our District. I hope it gives us some ideas and inspiration. Our own Club needs a major objective, be it a project for a local cause or an international one. Suggestions are most welcome.

The AGM will take place on Tuesday 4 June when a key proposal will be put to the club for a change to meeting arrangements. A full attendance by members is requested.

Although our club has not received much publicity recently, the many varied good works continue. These include, care of the rose bed, driving the community bus, assistance to other clubs and events and let us not forget our Christmas activities which bring cheer to many, particularly the residents  in the Care Homes.

Thanks to all in the Club
