Farewell Leena

Before returning to the USA, 2021 Global Scholar Leena Hornlein exchanged banners with Immediate Past President Karen Blair. Leena, who has been hosted by the Club during the last year, presented the banner from her sponsor Club the Rotary Club of Gilbert, a town in Maricopa County Arizona.  Although having to study from her Gilbert home for most of the year, she was a regular attendee at Club zoom meetings and the Club is very grateful for her input in preparations for this year’s online TABU Programme. We wish her well in her future career.

It is a great honour for me to be again taking on the role of President for the Rotary year 2021/22.

Being a Club based in Belfast city centre enables us to connect with the local Community, through service with YouthAction, Mitchell House and the Tree of Remembrance and we also support key efforts to end Homelessness. Worldwide we support the fight to ‘End Polio Now’ and help some of the world’s poorest people work their own way out of poverty with dignity by investment in small business via the Lendwithcare scheme in many countries including Ecuador, Malawi and Cambodia.

We recognise the tremendous amount of service already given by members but are looking forward to encouraging new members to join. Any prospective member is most welcome at any of our Monday meetings.

This year’s Rotary theme is Serve to Change Lives
and we hope that you will help us to expand our service.

Ken Nixon, President 2021/22
