THE Rotary Club of Windsor had its 59th annual president changeover dinner recently with an attendance of more than 80 guests.

Club members, family, visiting Rotarians and special guests attended to witness outgoing president Laurie Rose hand over the chains of office to incoming president John Gollan at Windsor RSL club.

Mr Rose said he was ‘‘pleased with the fundraising efforts this year’’ and highlighted the success of record fundraising activities for the year, totalling $75,738.

Treasurer John Bradley congratulated members on the funds disbursed to international and continuing projects in the community, and members’ commitment, at the June 27 dinner.

Community service director, Mike Norton, thanked all the members for their dedication throughout the year in the annual report.

‘‘I would like to thank all members for their commitment with 15 fundraising events, plus supporting their skills and equipment to other charitable organisations, clocking up over 800 hours of removing graffiti,’’ Mr Norton said.

Vocational service director, Terry Munsey, also added in the report the inaugural Bryson Anderson Award which was initiated by Windsor Rotary and the local Police Command to recognise the outstanding service and tragic passing of Detective Inspector Bryson Anderson.
