New Ideas from our District

New Ideas from our District

Friday, 13. September 2019 - 16:15

District Governor Arturo Alagón Valderas visited our Club on September 12th 2019 (with ever-helpful ADG Alain Pierard) and brought us up to date on recent initiatives in District.
With Martina Spann's help in translating, he presented the 'toolbox'  - quick access to key personnel - and in English if required.  
Amongst many other other points:

  • 'People of Action' is a service  priority, and we need to be visible in the Community. We can order special T Shirts to wear - by the 10th October.
  • The environment is also a priority - we were ahead of District there!  See our Plastic Action Day on YouTube
  • The District Guide and Membership cards are to be replaced by a new app
  • All three Spanish Districts have arranged a deal with a website for Christmas presents that will generate 3% of the value of purchases for Rotary Clubs

In turn, President Mark Shurey presented our service projects from last year ( and the video from the Plastics Action Day, as well as future plans.
He received praise for the work of the club, and a unique (well, one of 80) gift from the DG - a hand-crafted plaque with the current year's Rotary theme. Such plaques were traditionally hung in the entrance doorway, so we will find it a good home in our sede.
