It’s that time of the year when Leicester Novus Rotary Club members — in common with their 1.2 million brothers and sisters across the world — assemble to make plans for the Rotary year which starts on July 1.
President -Elect Kartar Singh Bring urged his fellow members to make a difference by serving to change lives. He said he wanted members to concentrate on fellowship and service while increasingly reaching out to the communities the club serves.
He outlined his ambitions in relation to the programme of meetings planned, how the club communicates with non-members, the social events so necessary to maintaining and building on fellowship and membership, by serving the people at home and abroad, and concentrating on young people.
Richard Power, a member of the Rotary Club of Leicester, was attending his first club assembly as Assistant Governor, representing David Morris, incoming Governor leading all the Rotarians in the 95 clubs across eastern central England. Richard congratulated Kartar, a hospitals chaplain, on a “great, clear presentation.”
Richard said that he hoped all three Rotary Clubs in Leicester would increasingly work together to promote Rotary and to serve society. A comprehensive discussion of Rotary’s aims and ambitions followed.
With the meeting handed back to current president Sarita Shah, it was agreed to donate cash from this year to Leicester Charity Link, Leicester Childrens Holiday Home, End Polio Now and Helipads for Hospitals.
