Thank you to the many who have led our six districts,  our clubs and our many projects for a wonderful job done over the last Rotary year. Welcome to those beginning or continuing in  leadership positions for the year ahead.
Thanks also to Rotary International President 2017-2018 Ian Riseley and Juliet for their leadership.  As Ian said recently: "You may have heard it said that the world is run by those who show up. Rotarians don’t just show up. They show up, and get to work. Many of you know that I love the great country of New Zealand. There’s a Maori proverb from that country that I’d like to share with you, that asks: What is the most important thing in the world? The answer is: He tangata, he tangata, he tangata. It is the people, it is the people, it is the people. In Rotary, it is the people who are making a difference. Thank you for all that you do."
Our success is up to us.
