FIRST FEMALE PRESIDENTFOR RICHMOND ROTARY


Richmond Rotary Club has elected its first ever female President, Emma Fulton.

Emma takes over the Presidency from Warnock Kerr, whose year of office coincided largely with the Covid 19 pandemic.

On leaving office Warnock Kerr thanked all members for making a frustrating year very enjoyable and said:


Although we were unable to hold normal meetings, the feeling of fellowship came through the Zoom medium, loud and clear.

Of course, it has been frustrating to have to cancel our traditional events, like the Art Exhibition, the Technical Tournament and the Best Kept Village contest but they will all return during this coming year with your help and commitment. 

In the year of Richmond’s 950 celebrations our Club was reminded of the special status of our original Richmond through our contacts with other Richmonds around the world such as Richmond California, Richmond Virginia and Richmond Surrey.

I wish Emma Fulton every success and happiness as she takes over the Presidency of our special welcoming Club.’


Taking up her new role Emma Fulton emphasised her desire to increase membership of the Club:

‘Rotary Clubs like Richmond do an amazing job for their local communities as well as giving members a great deal of fun and friendship.

Membership is open to anyone aged 18 and over and we welcome people of all abilities who would like to volunteer their help for both local and international good causes.’

Emma Fulton joined Richmond Rotary Club in 2017 as she wanted to give something back to the community. 

She and her family have been settled in the area for over 20 years after initially arriving as a military posting.

Her two children attended local schools and as teenagers are now thinking about colleges.
