New Rotary year begins again in July and I have been elected to be our club’s next president for the 2020-2021 season. From my point of view this is coming rather quick…..
Almost to the date I have been a Rotarian for 35 years now and I believe I have a vast experience and strong understanding of the Rotary. This year our DG is Ilkka Nikmo from Mänttä. I am certain that together we can make this coming new rotary year a successful and fun for all members concerned.
This last spring has been very unusual to all of us in many ways that we couldn’t have imagined before. Who would have thought that when we left our last club meeting on 11th March that our next normal weekly meeting would be in August 2020!
We will follow the government’s guide lines during this epidemic and possibly we will hold more virtual Teams meetings if necessary. Our goal is of course to return to normality regarding club meeting.
Our weekly program can be viewed online already, club’s weekly program. Club’s sergeant at arms Asta Mattila will keep us up-to-date with current information.
Our Rotary year will begin with annual coffee meeting (IC) at Market square on 1st July 2020 at 08.00 am. First meeting after summer break will be held at 12th August at Cafe Laurell when Hannele, as past president and myself as new president will do the change over. Looking forward to seeing you all there, welcome!
Before all this I would like to take the opportunity and wish you all a wonderful summer!
Best regards Jouko Lehtonen
