ANNS PRESIDENT’S REPORT YEAR ENDED JUNE 2019

This completes my two years as President of Kloof Rotary Anns. A position I have enjoyed with wonderful support from the whole Anns team. The time has now come for me to hand over the reigns to a new president whom I know will receive the same help and guidance which I received.

We have once again had a very busy and fruitful year. A lot of work – a lot of fellowship.

  • Our main charity this year has been Philakade Care Centre to whom we have donated R15 500. Paid for 100 pillows and sourced 100 quilts. We have continued to support Argus School at a cost of R5 000. Other donations made amounted to R51 500. We have also supported Rotary Foundation.

  • Our hampers are a large project and this year we handed out 110. Anns have held successful jumble sales during the year. Money from which is earmarked for our Christmas hampers.

  • We once again held a successful Open Gardens. Always well received but sponsorship not always as good as we would like. However, because of the weather we had a great turnout and made R53 500.

  • We have held the very popular Friendship Club mornings for the older folk in our area with very good speakers being sourced and Anns providing wonderful teas each month. Gifts being given when someone has a birthday. Many of the guest speakers have received small monetary gifts for the charities which they represented.

  • Three Anns go to Gillitts Primary School every week to work in the library and hear learners reading

  •  Anns have knitted bed socks; we have baked and delivered shortbread to many retirement homes at Christmas. We have collected and distributed second hand underwear and made beanies and scarves for the old Gogo’s and men in the Valley of 1000 Hills area.

  • Organised talks on puberty and sexual awareness at several schools and handed out Subz Reusable Sanitary Pads.

  • We have assisted the Rotarians in catering, flower arranging, manning information desk at Comrades Marathon, and manning a water point for Amashova Cycle Race. Assisted in various tasks at Festival in the Hills. Catering, flowers and assistance at Musical Pops. Some Anns hosted Friendship Exchange visitors.

  • We have been invited by Rotarians and joined them in social events like Family Evening and Braais at Iphithi.

  • Our monthly sugar spoon teas continue and are a popular way of getting to know one another better.  We have not grown in membership and were sorry to loose Sue Troughton when she moved out of the area.


This is a short summary of what a great band of ladies we are!.

Thank you again for your support and I beg the adoption of this report.

 

Wendy Scorgie

President 2018/19
