Club members formally welcomed Sue and Andre Winstanley to Silves Rotary Club at our evening meeting on the 28 August at the O’Barradas Restaurant near Silves. They received their pins from the President Alan Winn to the delight of their fellow Rotarians. Sue and Andre have been Rotarians before and we are looking forward to working with them to fulfil the 3 F’s, Fun, Fellowship and Fundraising.
We are pleased to confirm that Frits Lubbers will be our Incoming President for 2015/16. Frits will be supporting Alan this year in preparation for his presidency. Alan and Frits will be working with committee chairs to put together the fundraising and fellowship programme for this year.
During the visit of the students and teachers to Wildern School to attend their Oscars Ceremony, President Alan Winn, the Club Secretary, Isabel Flores, new member Dr Carlos Silva, Silves Sul School principal, attended the Hedge End Breakfast Rotary Club along with the two other teachers from the Silves Sul School. We were all made very welcome and we were asked to give a presentation about the multimedia project between the two schools. Brian Eyley from the Hedge End Rotary Club provided accommodation for two of the visiting teachers during their 5 day stay in the UK. We would like to thank Brian for making their stay so enjoyable. Thanks also to Hedge End for their welcome and especially Past President Rosemary Hall and her husband Peter for their generous personal donation to the exchange fund.
