Tickets have been printed and are now being distributed to those organisations who have indicated their interest in selling tickets and thus benefiting by the full amount of tickets sold. Club members are asked to help by selling tickets as before with the full amount going into club funds less the cost of setting up the raffle. Costs will be the licence fee and ticket printing. Thanks go to Wayne and Max for taking on this job and members are asked to give them their support.

Certificate of Appreciation

District Merger The steering committee consisting of representatives from Districts 9500 and 9520 welcomes suggestions from members of clubs in both Districts intended to make the new District 9510 work better from 1 July 2020. Bear in mind that the merging of Districts will probably coincide with the merging of some existing clubs but there will likely still be some 90 clubs in the new District. That’s large in population and large in area too. Some suggestions have already been made to help manage District 9510 but more are very welcome. Please send to steeringcom@rotary9510.org
