Our new President, Suzie Himely was enthusiastically inducted by retiring President Peter Trebble last night, and what a happy affair it was. Old faces, new faces and two more members Tom and Danny inducted into the Rotary Club of Claremont. Tom brings down the average age of members to around 61 but Danny fortunately reduced this to about 60,5. *This is Jo’s maths.
Danny arrived with her “not” boyfriend, a funky headed young man introduced as MydateScott, too cute for words. If I was younger she wouldn’t have a chance. There was much camaraderie between Claremont Rotarians and those from other clubs and our visitors. JJ received his well deserved Paul Harris and applauded by all, especially me who has abused his continuous generous offer of Shawn and the company truck to collect and deliver a myriad of donations to places as far as Rawsonville.
It really was a happy evening with Ian Robertson clicking away and catching some of us off guard, sideways with prominent noses and double chins, but they will remain anonymous. Print those at your peril Ian. I am truly proud to be a Rotarian and looking forward to a new year under the Presidency of Suzie.
Suzies motto for the year: “Lets do it now!”
