Anne Egan D.G. 2015-2016 - Youth Month

“Welcome to all Rotarians and the family of Rotary and welcome also to visitors to our District 9640 .
A belated welcome to May which is Youth Month in the world of Rotary International. We have had a wonderful month already, particularly honouring our youth at District 9640 Conference in Murwillumbah on the weekend of 6, 7 & 8 May 2016.
We thank the RYLA youth for their involvement in the Conference as well as the other young speakers. 
The future of our organisation and indeed our country depends upon the quality and nature of our youth.  When I meet and talk with the generation of the “under thirties” I am filled with inspiration as to our future.  They have at heart core values of service.  They do things differently to the way that we do.  They will benefit from our mentoring and guidance if proffered. 
We need to form relationships with the youth in our community and encourage them to become part of our wonderful organisation.
Recently at the District 9640 Conference, District Governor (DG) Anne Egan alongside Rotary International Nominee Ian Riseley (whom is well known to Brian and Nancy) awarded a special, perpetual, inaugural award to Brian and Nancy Knowles.
Named in their honour for significant and substantial service to Rotary International on a local and international level, such as is required for unique district recognition, to acknowledge Brian and Nancy’s achievements over the past 55 years in Rotary.
Congratulations to you both!

The Pacific Islands Rotary District Conference opened at Jupiter’s Broadbeach on Saturday 16th April with 170 Rotarians from District 9920.   District Governor (DG) Anne was an invitee.
The Conference opening speaker was 12 year old Mac Millar from Brisbane seen here with DG Anne. Mac loves to play football and has made it his mission to collect footballs and send them to refugee kids in Jordon, Syria, Afghanistan, Somalia, Nauru and around the world to build good will and peace.
So far he has collected over 10,000 footballs and sent them abroad to conflict zones with the help of Rotary Clubs and Australian United Nations (UN) peace keeping forces. He made an inspiring presentation to the conference.

Past District Governor Graham Jones couldn't wipe the smile off his face recently as he watched the 50th Rotarian from our District graduate from the Rotary Leadership Institute. Since starting two years ago, the program has gone from strength to strength and given the participants the opportunity to learn more about Rotary International and gain new skills to enhance their contribution to their Clubs. 
Congratulations to all the graduates!
