A real Champion!!

Ross & Therese   Thanks for allowing many of us the use of your garage, PLUS assisting with everything from beginning to end to ensure our efforts ran efficiently.

Thanks to all those who assisted with the Set-Up and also the Pack-Up – many hands made relatively light work of it, albeit in the dark, from 8.20pm

Finally a big thank you to Treasurer Derek who kept his eye on all transactions before, during and after the event from his overseas walking adventures in South Korea – Service Above Self!!

Whilst last night’s event was not a success financially, it showed us that a group of people who would likely never have met, other than through Rotary, worked dynamically together as a team with good humour, flexibility, creativity and a focused sense on fun and purpose.
