At our annual Changeover, Nelson West thanked outgoing Pres. Nigel Sutton for guiding through another successful year.
We helped at several events (Home & Garden Show, Eco-fest, 100th anniversary of ANZAC landings, etc), raised funds for local and international causes (eg Shelterbox). helped build the Nelson Cycleway, hosted Rotary Youth Exchange students, welcomed Shelley and Liz as new members, organised and managed another Boulder Bank walk, and conducted another successful charity auction for the Rotary Foundation. And lots more.
Pres. Nigel was a quiet, steady hand through it all, and Nelson West members responded by pitching in and helping out when called upon.
The year was capped off when Nigel received, on behalf of Nelson West, the district environment award for our Boulder Bank Challenge and the district trophy for top giving per member to the Rotary Foundation.
Thank you, Nigel and Christine, for a great year.
