Tonight the Club welcomed District Governor Gary Hopkinson and Rae to the Rotary Club of Bishopdale Burnside. We were one of the many visits that Gary has made or still to make throughout our district 9970.

Gary hails from the Rotary Club of Greymouth and was first exposed to Rotary when he attended one of the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) programme in the 1970's.

He later visited Sweden as part of a Rotary Group Study Exchange (GSE).

Initially involved in Scouting on the West Coast, Gary joined Rotary 12 years ago.

Both Gary and Rae were warmly welcomed to the Club by President David Conroy.
