A Message from Rotary Recognition and Service Awards:-
Congratulations! Your club has earned the Rotary Citation, the most significant award a Rotary club can achieve, for 2020-21. During a year that was challenging for many Rotarians around the world, your club demonstrated a commitment to achieve its goals, which ultimately helps strengthen Rotary and shape our future.
The Certificate below acknowledges the generous donations from the Rotary Club of Silves to the End Polio Now Program for the Rotary Year 2020/21. This donation will be matched 2:1 by The Gates Foundation.
It highlights that Rotary will continue to support this program whilst also, supporting the struggle against Covid among the poorest of the poorest countries and regions.
At our first meeting this year, we had the opportunity to present Maria with her Rotary pin. She has been working with us for at least a year and previously has supported our fundraising events. Officially a member in January we were unable to present her pin due to the Covid 19 restrictions. We were so happy to see her receive her pin and celebrate with her.
Handover Lunch 3 July: Rotarians, friends and guests enjoyed a lovely meal and a happy time reviewing the past year with their outgoing president Alan Winn and welcoming the new President Bart Von Linden at the Bellavita Restaurant in Galé. Alan thanked all members for their hard work over the past year providing the three F’s, Fellowship, Fun and Fundraising. The money raised this year had without doubt “Changed Lives”. The Incoming Governor for 2016/17 Abilio Lopes offered both Alan and the club congratulations on a successful year. The Members of Silves Rotary were also joined by past, incoming and new presidents from other Rotary Clubs across the Algarve, who added their congratulations. Last but not least João Antunes presented RC Silves with a certificate, one of only three awarded in the Algarve for “ Fazer O Rotary Brilhar”, “Making Rotary Brilliant” which was signed by the District Governor and the RI President Gary Huang.
RC Silves would like to thank all those Friends of Rotary who supported our events and helped us to achieve our goals. We could not have done it without you. We will endeavour to provide you with more fun next year with our new President Bart Van Lindon and Vice President Sheena Rawcliffe.
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.
