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!
