New President and PHF Recipient presents his first Report 28.06.21
Hi all,
It was a wonderful night of fellowship at last night’s changeover dinner. An all-round feeling of goodwill prevailed which was capably engendered and promoted by our Master of Ceremonies Darren Wallace along with the willing participation by members, partners and guests. This augurs well for the start of a new Rotary year and it is something that I would like to see continue unabated within the mix of a productive and fun year.
Well done to Phil McIntosh on the receipt of a Sapphire Pin. His vision for, and dedicated commitment to The Gears and Beers festival has resulted in positive recognition and benefit for the Wollundry Rotary Club and the community of Wagga.
Peter Mackinnon has also worked tirelessly over many years in effecting exceptional operations and logistical outcomes for both major festivals. This year he has also stood up to take on the complex role of Club Secretary. Well done to him.
The 100% attendees list did not appear in the program booklet last night, so I will print it here as there are some quite outstanding achievements within the numbers.
Geoff Breust 100% 21-22               aggregate 100%
David Golland 100%21-22             aggregate 100%
Phil McIntosh 100% 21-22             aggregate 100%
Richard Baguley 100% 21-22        aggregate 200%
Phil Burgess 100% 21-22                aggregate 200%
Wal Paton 100% 21-22                   aggregate 200%
David Pyke 100% 21-22                  aggregate 300%
James Ross 100% 21-22                  aggregate 1900%
James Hamilton 100% 21-22        aggregate 2100%
Neil Pinto 100% 21-22                    aggregate 2100%
David Benn 100% 21-22                 aggregate 3600%
David Byfield 100% 21-22              aggregate 4200%
There are some high figures there. Well done to all.
Recognition must also go to the outgoing Board for its steady steerage of the ship over the past twelve months. Mark Hillis, Tim Hutchings, James Ross and David Pyke have stood down. Thank you for your efforts, particularly to David Pyke who took on the Treasurer’s role again after the retirement of Ken Taylor at about the half way point.
Congratulations to IPP Richard for having the courage to stand up for the role of President 21-22. You carried out your duties to the best of your ability, and that is all that could have been asked of you.
I thank you all for your endorsement as President for 2022 – 2023 and look forward to working closely with you over the coming year. Thank you to those have stood up for Board positions 2022 -2023. We do not have an onerous task because we all belong to an efficient and successful Club, that is charged with experience, knowledge, skills and enthusiasm.
Incoming President Phil
Outgoing Presidents report
Last night was a very successful changeover dinner. Darren Wallace was an excellent MC for the night with his funny bugle heralding the events of the night. Graham Burmeister gave the invocation and revealed his health issues; members please support him in a difficult time. There were some apologies for the night but a good turnout for the event. The spouses all looked lovely on the night. EIaine Almond and PDG John Glassford and his wife Susan were welcome guests of the night. I had a chance to speak to the Rotoract President  Matthew Crouch and they have moved the club away from the university, but still recruit there. I hope our club can keep in touch and support them.
The old board was thanked and the new board welcomed. I wish to thank all the board members for the help advice and support over the year. I think by the end I managed to get it right! I handed on the presidency to Phil Burgess who I am sure will do an excellent job in that role. It was my pleasure to surprise him with a Paul Harris fellowship from the club; well done to the club for this. Phil McItosh was also given a Paul Harris sapphire pin on the night for all his great work for the club.
The hundred percenters of attendance were noted including David Benn 36 years and David Byfield an incredible 42 years of meeting attendance, a great effort by all.
Peter McKinnon was rewarded for his work and contribution to the club and presented with the Rotarian of the Year. 
I look back on the year with its trials and tribulations especially as we emerged from the restrictions of the pandemic. Meeting at Romanos seems to me going well. We occasionally end up downstairs which is not great but they treat us well. We lost a few members, and sadly they were some of our younger ones. Welcome to our newest members; I hope you will enjoy your time in our club for it's fellowship and joining in with the activities we do so well.
I am very grateful for Paul Murray helping me rejoin the club, after a 22 year gap while I was working in Junee Prison.  I look forward to another year in our great club.
Outgoing Secretary's  Report 28.06.22
Hi all,
Thank you to all Club members for supporting me during my two year tenure as Club Secretary. During this time I have learned about the workings of the Club and Rotary in general. I have come to know all members by way of interaction, observation and listening over time. This knowledge will be invaluable to me for my new role as President. 
Peter Mackinnon will be taking over next month, and look forward to working with him for the coming year.
New rosters are being formulated for Club duties, I have entered those that I have received so far. It may take a week or two to get them all smoothed out.
I will sign off by once again thanking you all, for the opportunity to serve as your Secretary and look forward to working with you all in my new role as President.
