Central Heads Up – March 17

Just in case you don’t make it to the end of this article. This is very important. We would like to advise you that our Friday meeting starts at 17:30hrs not 18:00hrs. Please lets respect this time so that we may be able to finish all our programs on time.

So, now back to business, why are we so excited and asking everyone to be on time this Friday. In our previous meeting, we had nominations for new office bearers for the year 2015 – 2016 and this Friday, we will have elections to choose the new board. Nominees for the office of the president are Penelope Mandeya, Derrick Chiutsi and Michael M Chiwere. We therefore recommend that all club members attend this meeting and also encourage you to bring your friends, workmates or classmates.

The Rotary year is quickly approaching it’s end, or should we say the new Rotary year is fast approaching. Whichever way to see it, one thing is certain, induction dinners are upon us and so is the District Conference. This year’s District Conference will be held in Livingstone Zambia from the 29th of April to the 3rd of May. For Rotaractors, the conference fees are $50.00 only, which includes all your meals.

Transport has been negotiated with Intercape and that would be $60.00, including the return ticket. However, this Intercape offer is valid up to the end of this month. Accommodation offers are still unclear, however, Zambezi CABS Lodges in Victoria Falls is offering self catering rooms at $92.00 for the 4 nights. Preference is being given to Rotaractors up to the 23rd of this month. Otherwise, Rotarians will be given the rooms if we do not take them up. For those who will be staying in Victoria Falls, there will be a shuttle service (not free) to the conference venue in Livingstone.

Meanwhile, club services has also been working on our club wear so that when we go for DISCON, we go in style. New club t-shirts are now available for only $10.00. You can place your order via the Whatsapp group or directly to the club services chair on Friday. Remember to also pay up your club subscriptions so that you will be eligible to vote during the elections.

 

Remember not to miss this Friday’s meeting, looking forward to seeing you all there!
