Welcome, it is with great sadness I report the passing of Past President Graham Coventry.
Graham was president of our club 2014 /2015 and a member for many years.
I spoke to Judith on Saturday to offer the club’s condolences to her and the family and any assistance they may need. The funeral service will be small, for family and close friends at Sunnyvale on Saturday 20th August. Judith will let Sam Cozens know the details if you wish to attend as I will be away.
Condolences were also sent to Past District Governor, Jeff Neale and family, on the passing of his father Reg, a Charter Member of Rotary Club of Campbelltown.
Good to hear from travelling Rotarians Jim Cundy and Sam Cozens, who take their computers with them on holidays. Don’t forget the movie night coming up on Tuesday 29th of August at the Cameo.
That’s about it for this week see you Tuesday night, Gordon.
Editors Note.
Graham was a past member of Tumut, Casterton, Murray Bridge, Kununurra and Renmark. A mark of the man was that he served as President for most of these Clubs. Vale Graham.
