The Key – 17th February 2014

This Monday

On Monday 17th February we will hold our meeting in the restaurant section of the Soccer Club. Erin Westley, our recent participant in the NYSF will be reporting on her experience.

I believe that I was the first applicant to be sponsored by the Rotary Club of Gungahlin to participate in this program. I would like to thank all the members of the club for providing me with the financial support I needed in order to have this amazing opportunity. – Erin Westley Please note: the Soccer Club has new catering arrangements, with a new menu.

Last Monday

Last Monday night, we had a productive Club Assembly and concurrent Board meeting. A lot of business was done and we still finished on time.

More Congratulations!
