A new Paul Harris Fellow

On Wednesday April 30 the three Southern Highlands Rotary clubs gathered at Annesley in Bowral for an Italian evening. Nicola Lindsay from the Olive Leaf Cafe catered for the evening with wonderful bowls of a creamy pasta followed by Tiramisu. There was much laughter and great spirit as the Rotarians socialised and shared stories over dinner.
DG Maureen Manning and AG Tony Glenn joined the celebrations and we had a fun ‘Jan Edwards Roast’ before presenting Jan with a Paul Harris Fellow Award in recognition of the community work she does throughout the Highlands as well as her two consecutive years as President of the Rotary Club of Berrima District.
It was recognition well deserved and DG Maureen Manning was there to do the ‘pinning’.Jan Jan2
