Beautiful sunshine ensured a day to remember at Overnewton Castle on Sunday when we celebrated the year of President Ted Cunningham and saw the changeover of Presidency to President Elect Cameron Horder for Rotary year 2013/14. District Governor Dennis Shore his wife Lynda joined us, together with family and friends of President Ted and President Elect Cameron. It was a great thrill to have Charter Member, Life Member & PP Angus Abbey & Dorothy, Life Member PP Norm Dench & Joy and Life Member PP Joe Bray & Elsie with us. Between them Angus, Norm & Joe have a combined 142 years of membership of the Rotary Club of Keilor.
Proceedings were chaired by Sergeant Glenda Bryson who did an excellent job and kept all present entertained with “stories of the year” leading up to announcement of the winner of the annual “Jackass Award”. Interestingly, most stories reported on featured the driving and parking of cars most demonstrating tragic failure. President Ted provided an overview of his year of President, distributed a comprehensive report and thanked his Board, his family and Carmel and the members of the Club for the support he had received and the outstanding achievements of the Club in 2012/13
Two well deserved Paul Harris Sapphire Awards were presented to PP Kevin Nolan and PP Norm Draper for the great work they continue to do for the Keilor Rotary Club. Kevin Nolan and Norm Draper, pictured with District Governor Dennis Shore and IPP President Ted Cunninghan
