Wilf's Message


I hope this coming year will see the club grow as much as last year. I would like to thank Joan for her commitment to Preston South during her year as president, she will be a hard act to follow.

We still have the rotary stone to be put in place and I am sure it will get done. We will soon have our annual golf day at PGC. This can't be done without the help of the club. Wrap up is coming up fast and again this needs the clubs support as it can't be carried out without it. It also won't be too long before it is time to get the santa slay out. 

Our club carries out a lot of projects and we support a lot of charities. All of the above can't be done without your help. 

I would like to thank you in advance for your help and support in the forthcoming Rotary year.

Yours in Rotary Wilf Bailey
