Just as club have a Distinguished Club Program to recognise the achievements of clubs in serving their members, Districts also have a District Recognition Program.
We have an excellent group of leaders in our district and I’m pleased to say that all 5 of our divisions have achieved Select Distinguished Division or better.
In particular, we celebrate the achievement of Neil Coleman, Division B Director. All seven of his areas have achieved Distinguished or better.
Congratulations also to our other Division Directors on their achievements:
Richard Blackman, Division J Director, President’s Distinguished Division
Barry Greenan, Division L Director, President’s Distinguished Division
Doug New, Division H Director, Select Distinguished Division
Samir Malak, acting Division K Director, Select Distinguished Division
The following areas have achieved something very special. Excellence means doing more than the minimum required for recognition and the following Area Directors have certainly done that, because 100% of their clubs have achieved Distinguished or better:
Julia Kettlewell, Area 52
Dawn Rowlatt, Area 32
Laura McHarrie, Area 42
Peter Varholak, Area 58
Nick Bailey, Area 21, plus one new club
Dudley Flynn, Area 47, plus one new club which is also distinguished!
David Salamons, Area 45, plus two new clubs
