Our district's second satellite club, the Satellite Club of Southport-Griffith University, was chartered on 10 November before a packed house of around 70 Rotarians and friends.
After a year's planning and work by a dedicated team, Past District Governor (PDG) Sandra Doumany presented new Club Secretary Simon Jeans with the Charter document and inducted the 14 charter members. Satellite Club President Paul Fitzmaurice was inducted about two weeks ago and the Club has several more members set to join.
The Club will hold monthly e-meetings and regular breakfast meetings at an on-campus cafe. Our district has one other satellite club, the Rotary Club of Glen Innes' Satellite Club, and negotiations recently began for the formation of a third satellite club.
It was a terrific launch of a stellar new club!
