The latest two inductees are Bronwyn Taylor and Karlien Kruger. Both were inducted at the meeting last week.
There's a good chance that the growth will continue, as there are a number of potential candidates waiting in the wings.

In this vein, Bronwyn Taylor was introduced by Helene Bramwell, who also joined fairly recently.
Bronwyn, who was involved in the advertising industry, has helped Helene with the Donate-a-Loo project, which they hope to operate on a larger scale through Rotary.

We're of course delighted to have two such stalwarts as members.

At one stage the split was 60-40 and the average age 55, but we cannot change the fact that we're all getting older. A good representation of younger members keeps us on our toes.
|Members of the Rotaract club shared breakfast with the New Dawners|
One of their members, Alfred Kalunga gave feedback on his training with Meriting and it sounds as if everything went well.
Three of the Rotaracters will be attending Discon in Middelburg in June for the Rotaract conference on the Sunday.

At the meeting last week President Linda Vink announced that New Dawn is definitely in line for a RI Presidential Citation, probably in the gold class (there is also a platinum class). Carol Stier has arranged for money tins that can be rubbed under people's noses to add to the clubs' annual contribution to the End Polio Now campaign and at the same time tick an important box to achieve the citation.
On most other criteria we pass with flying colours,
It's worth it for members to read through the requirements for the citation on My Rotary, as these and other campaigns are all designed to help clubs to be and remain vibrant.

At the convention we will be able to share a stand with other members of the German-Southern Africa group and will use the opportunity to explain our projects to visitors in the main exhibition hall. After all, both Jankees and Linda are good salespeople and both are fluent in German.
Carol Stier will be running the meetings and Graham Donet will be taking attendance, the breakfast money and writing the blog while we're away.
Members are urged to keep the momentum in the club going, even if it is a time of year that many people go away.
The Rotary year ends on 30th June and Judy has arranged for her induction to be on Saturday, 20th July. As announced, it'll be at the Vulture restaurant in the Magaliesberg. Please diarise the date and bring family and friends along. The formalities, Judy promises, will be kept to a minimum.
