President’s Night 2015

Presidents night 2015-2016We enjoyed a lovely meal at The Swan in Milton Keynes village to celebrate the end of President Jan Flawn’s year. Afterwards we moved to the garden where Alison thanked Jan for her work as President.

Jan thanked all at the club for their support, particularly with the trim trail for Great Brickhill. Alex received Rotarian of the Year for his work with the club accounts.

Alison was inducted as President for the Rotary year 2015-2016 and formally presented Sue with her President Elect ribbon. A lovely evening.

Another two new members

Almost the last meeting of the Rotary year and yet the club managed to induct two new members. On the left we have Liz Daly who was a member of Milton Keynes Rural Rotaract back in the day. Welcome to the club Liz, we know you will fit right in. On the right, is Kevin who for the last two years has very kondly driven our Santa Float round the streets of Bletchley and Newport Pagnell. Jan our President Elect is his sister and has used her influence to persude him to give the club some of this precious time and skills. Welcome Kevin, we are already indebted to you and look forward to finding out what else you are good at so we and our good causes can benefit even more than we do now.

Rotarian of the Year 2012

Rotarian of the Year Lesley

I think Lesley was the most surprised person in the room when it was announced at Presidents night that she had been voted by the members as the Rotarian of the Year.


Lesley said...

"Thank you very much for voting me "Rotarian of the Year". I have enjoyed this past year very much because it was shared with you all. Thank you for your friendship and support. 

As in many Oscar speeches the winner goes to the podium and is speechless as the award was very unexpected (just think I could have had 5 pages of thankyous). I think I was not far off the same shade of my dress! If I was at the Oscar podium I would have liked to include a member of the club to share it with me. Sarah. I think she has worked tirelessly and with tremendous energy and I would love to have her stand next to me. 

I look forward to next year with Nigel at the helm and I hope to carry on the excellent work all Rotarians achieve."

Well done Lesley.
