At our end of year celebrations at Marianne and Peter's home, we recognised three of our members as Rotary Heroes - Peter Deacon for bravely wading through bureaucratic red tape to get our Rotary Exercise Trail underway, Rod Stewart for his championship of Rotary Foundation and his work assessing District grants applications and Alan Joyce "The Man With the Van" for the hours of work he and his van do behind the scenes. We welcomed in the new theme "Rotary Connects the World" but kept the same old president Karen Pecar (that's me) - pictured with secretary superstar Marianne Deacon.
