As the Presidential chain is handed from the outgoing to the incoming President, members have an opportunity to reflect on the past year and look forward to the next.
President Margaret Francey – who had made history when she had become the Club’s first female President- thanked members for their support over the past 12 months. She welcomed Patrick as the new President but hoped that the chain would be passed to many more women in the future.
Members took the opportunity to thank Margaret for her service and wished Patrick well for his Presidential Year.
During the meeting PP Stanley Smith congratulated Bob Jellie on his win of the monthly draw, and President Patrick presented Luigi Rossetti with a prize for the Guess the Money in the Box competition!
