Inglewood Rotary Visit

Our first official visit was this evening to the Rotary Club of Inglewood.  It was a special visit as Inglewood was also the first place my Garcia family arrived in Taranaki - in 1902 when my grandfather came here from Thames.
Rotary in Inglewood is very visible with a centennial project electronic sign on the main road and Rotary House decorated with the Rotary logo and available for community use.  We were impressed with the range of projects Inglewood Rotary is involved in both locally and overseas - from printing a local telephone directory to a classic car show and many more.  We sensed a really strong community spirit and sense of friendship which made our evening very enjoyable.
It was a real pleasure to present a Paul Harris Fellow Award pin and certificate to their Secretary Lux Fonseka when he was recognised by the Club this evening for his dedicated service over many years.  Congratulations Lux and Inglewood Rotary for your service to the community.
