Change-over Night 2019
Last Monday the Club held its change-over event. The Canterbury Centre (after a recent name change from the BASScare Centre) was transformed into a venue that had the look and feel of Africia. We were joined by guests from our cluster Clubs, the incoming District Governor Grant Hocking and his wife Melissa, members, partners and friends of the Club.
We had the traditional handover from current President Steve Wylie to the incoming President Lili-Ann Kriegler, presentation of Paul Harris fellow awards to Val Cunniffe, Karin Simpson and John Braine and, in recognition of her tremendous works  with the BusyFeet program, the award of Club Person of the year to Jenni Nankervis. 
Throughout the evening we were able to enjoy great fellowship, very sumptuous food by a our caterers Foodalicious Catering, and some very lively entertainment from our drummers. It was a terrific event  - many thanks especially to Lili-Ann, Helen and Pat,  Karin and Rob, Nora  and Bill and all of the team involved in organising the event, setting up the room and also putting it back to its original state at the end  of the night.
Next Speaker 1 July - Emmanuel (Emma) Sserwanga
Our speaker on 1 July is Emmanuel (Emma) Sserwanga, aka Coopy Bly  – together with his Australian wife Anne-Marie Reddan who are the founders of Yimba Uganda.
Emma was born in Uganda and met Anne-Marie when she visited Uganda. Together they set-up Yimba Uganda which operates a number of programs to assist the community and youth in Uganda.
Canterbury RC Zone 8 Video Competition Winner
A few weeks ago the Club, through the effort of Janet Hay, entered a video taken at the Multi-District Conference in February in a competition to promote the activities of rotary.  Today, the following advice was received from Gina Crowden:
I’m delighted to advise that your entry has won first prize in the Zone 8 Public Image People of Action Video competition for 2018-19.
Congratulations on your excellent video.   You obviously had a lot of fun putting it together and the “For a Meal” project you featured is certainly a great example of Rotarians in Action carrying out a very worthwhile project assisting those in need.
Past RI Director Noel Trevaskis has agreed that the three finalists in the competition will be featured at the New Zealand Australia Conference to be held in Christchurch in September.  We will also use social media to promote the finalists in the competition and will forward your entry to Rotary International who may showcase it through My Rotary and their various social media sites.
I encourage you to use the video as a means of promoting the excellent work that you do in the community.
Thank you once again for entering the competition, and congratulations on taking out first place.
Well done to Janet and to those who assisted her to prepare the video.
