President:ƒ‚‚ Steve Wassellƒ‚‚ - 2016/2017

ƒ‚‚steve wassell




Having served as Chairman of the International Committee for the past two years and Community Services before that, it will come as a refreshing challenge to step into the President’s role.

I aim to continue to promote the health, growth and well-being of the club and its members with a comprehensive list of events, organised by the various committees, for both fund-raising and fellowship, and to encourage and foster a positive, pro-active approach to Rotary endeavours.

The President’s Charity during the course of my year will be MacMillan Support Fund, for which I will organise several events, including a charity cycle ride to and from Ypres in Belgium. This will also serve to commemorate the centenary of the Great War.

One of my aims is to continue to promote the club’s strong links with our contact clubs in northern France and Germany and to that end I shall invite the members of Hazebrouck-Merville club once again to accompany us on the road to Ypres. Also I shall welcome the Rotary club of Cham to join us in Whitstable for a comprehensive list of Fellowship events.

I will continue to search for ways to increase the membership of the club through networking amongst friends and colleagues and I would exhort each member to do likewise. Most members join Rotary through word-of-mouth, so let’s keep inviting our acquaintances to our meetings.

Finally, I would like to draw attention to the Rotary motto: ‘Service Before Self’; the more we can help others in greater need than ourselves, the more we are strengthening the resolve to be good Rotarians.

Let us have a fruitful, productive and worthwhile year in Rotary.

Yours in Rotary,

Steve Wassell
