Dear President Mike,
Thank you very much for having Marilyn and I on Wednesday 10th November, at your Club dinner meeting and for having an early pre- discussion with me .  We thoroughly enjoyed the visit and it was good to catch up and have a chat with your members. Please pass on our appreciation. You have a great Club, with vibrant members, and we were made to feel very much at home and amongst many friends. Thank you also for the lovely flowers, very kind of you and much appreciated.

Keep up the good work and thank you and your Club for all the significant things that you do for Rotary.

You have enormous support from AG Alan who will be a marvellous friend to you and the RC of Albert Park. He has a wealth of Rotary experience and is there to help.
