Our District Chairman - Deirdre Griffin


Friends,

 

A few words from your new District Chairman – well, perhaps not so new!

 

As some of you may remember, I am an Ayrshire lass.  From school, I went to Glasgow University, emerging with an MA in Geography and Archaeology, and a PG certificate in Archaeology.  A “gap year~” working in the University library convince me that finding information was equally interesting as finding artefacts, and so I embarked on a career in Librarianship, ending as Library Manager at University Campus Suffolk (now University of Suffolk).

 

Tom and I married in 1975, and this event has ultimately led me to being so deeply involved in Inner Wheel and the wider Rotary family.  In 2011-12 when I was District Chairman before, we did the “double act” of District Chairman and District Governor.  That was a busy year.  This time his big Rotary role comes next year.

 

I am looking forward to visiting our clubs again – you are the powerhouse of our organisation.  It’s what you do that brings hope and joy to so many, and makes lives that little bit better.

 

I hope you will support my chosen charity, Teenage Cancer Trust based at Addenbrookes Hospital.  It transforms cancer care for young people in the whole of the Eastern region.

 

I am looking forward to visiting you all, as I said, and hope to see you at the District Rally on 31 October 2019 at Fynn Valley Golf Club, just north of Ipswich.  Details have already been circulated.  See you there!

 

Deirdre
