President’s Message – April 2015

Winter is now gone and the Spring warm up is under way. This can only mean that The Spring Gala of The Rotary Club of Port Perry is very close. The Gala committee has everything in hand and the last details are being taken care of. On the 12th we and our guests will meet at Royal Ashburn Golf Club for a fun evening of Dinner and Bidding both silently and, in a live and lively way, for special items.

On April 15th our speaker will be Bobby Drew from the Township of Scugog Council and Durham Regional Council to bring us up to date on the new Councils and the items they are dealing with.

Larry Wright, the new District 7070 Student Exchange Chair will speak to us about this important program on April 22nd. I’m sure that he will fill us in on our next exchange student from Argentina who will be joining us early in the upcoming 2015/2016 Rotary year.

According to my notes, on April 29th, Tracy McGarry will speak to us about Scugog Community Care and the fine work they do.

In the meantime, lets enjoy our Spring Gala and help to raise funds for the many projects and ongoing work we do for and in our community.

~President Bob Brownson
