The Presidential change of guard Tuesday 6th July 2021
All smiles!
A relief to reach the end of David Abbey's successful presidential
COVID filled year.
And what a year!!  Innumerable ZOOM meetings but we managed
distribution of hand sanitisers to nurses & police, clothing for Caroline Chisholm Society and Youth Projects - After Dark programme ,
computers for disabled children in Peru, computer aid for basic
education and literacy of street children and student scholarship - 
Bahay Tuluyan Philipines, food for orphanage and supply pulse 
oximeters to Yangong General Hospital in Myanmar, follow up on 
cleft lip surgery project in Sri Lanka, celebration of 100 years of
Rotary with our 100 beehive project, support of the Strathmore
Mens Shed and  fund raising for Bush Fire victims, monster raffles, 
Moonee Valley Art Show, BBQ's, various District 9800 grants and
gracious donations from the public.
One of the President David's pleasurable duties was to induct our
newest member into the Rotary Club of Essendon.
It's almost time to hand over the reigns of the Club.
Serious discussion with our latest Paul Harris awardee (sapphire)
Maria, for her outstanding service to Rotary over many years.
President David Abbey's final act was inducting our new President
for 2021 - 2022  Sunil Perera, before becoming a feather duster.
President Sunil Perera in his mantle of office, addressing the Club,
full of aspirations for the year to come.
Watch this space for the Club's upcoming humanitarian projects
both domestic and international.
