The meal at the Novotel was of a very good quality and the standard of service was also very good today. Many of the Rotarians and guests present took advantage of the 10% Rotary discount in the bar.
The speaker for the event today was Rotarian Peter King from the Rotary Club of Kew Gardens. Peter is the RIBI Vice President Elect and will become RIBI President in 2014-15. This was the first time that I had heard Peter make a speech and I have to say that I was quite impressed. He talked about the challenges facing Rotary in these islands and of the changes that needed to be made. He did this without preaching and with a sense of humour. His talk seemed to go down very well with the audience.
District Governor Nominee, Steve Lawes, who will be DG during the same year as Peter is RIBI President gave the vote of thanks.
