Our new Club website is launched!
Just type rotarygungahlin.com into your browser and a click will take you there. It’s a new look and somewhat more interactive when it’s fully up and running. A note has been pasted on the previous website that it not being updated any longer.
A former member, Geoff Windsor, currently in India, has done all the backroom work to bring us to this point (and has likely saved us 1000s of $) and now our job is to use it to show ourselves off to the (cyber) world. A good site will attract ‘hits’ from new visitors and will encourage them to revisit to find out more – about Gungahlin Rotary and about Rotary in general.
On Monday night, 20th October, we will have a Club Assembly/Board meeting, to be held in the dining room of the Soccer Club.
