This afternoon, Debbie and I attended the D9630 Changeover luncheon at Picnic Point, in Toowoomba. The event was attended by more than 100 Rotarians and “Friends of Rotary”. The guests heard addresses from DG Jitendra, DGE Ros Kelly and several others, all kept to a disciplined timetable by the MC, PDG Elwyn Hodges.
Outgoing District Governor, Jitendra Prasad, gave a spirited and emotional closing address which earned him a standing ovation from the guests.
Past District Governor, Nick Curry was presenting President Nim a 3rd Sapphire for her PHF, an award she will probably never wear, because at the same time he presented both Jitendra and Nim diamond pins for reaching the level of Major Donors to the Rotary Foundation.
Our Past President, Stephen Ganko was on hand to receive his 2019 -2020 Assistant Governors badge. Congratulations Stephen, on you selection for another year.
I aopolgise for the picture quality. It was a difficult venue with a lot of backlight.
