David Guy - Induction

Tue, Jul 26th 2011 at 12:00 am -

New Rotarian David Guy is welcomed into membership by District Governor Lynn Mitchell and President Iain Norman

After numerous visit to the Club, David Guy was proposed as a member by Rotarian Eddie Doody.

Members were delighted to welcome David into the fellowship of Rotary International at a brief ceremony during the Club Meeting on Tuesday 26th July 2011 when President Iain Norman read the Object of Rotary and explained the responsibilities and advantages of membership.

District Governor Lynn Mitchell congratulated David upon becoming a member and presented him with his badge.

Lynn then addressed the Club for the first time since taking office and explained the latest international, national and District initiatives and, in particular, the drive to eradicate polio from the world and her personal themes of caring for children and musical activities.

Members then listened in awe to an excellent presentation by "S-J" about the wonderful voluntary work being carried out by "Community Pastors" in Broadstairs, Margate and Ramsgate. To quote their website www.communitypastors.org.uk :

"Community Pastors is a partnership project across Thanet
Churches.  It is a bringing together of Christian volunteers from across many
denominations to serve a common purpose - to put the Church back into the heart
of our communities by listening to, engaging with and genuinely caring for
people's wellbeing on the streets late on weekend nights.  Our aim is to
signpost anyone in need to a place of support and safety and for those most
vulnerable, provide safe passage home.  Call us Angels or Aunties and Uncles on
the streets... we're there to listen, to bring a calmness to a situation, offer
assistance to anyone on their own - and to hand out the occasional pair of flip
flops, if they're needed!"
