President 1998 - 99

               When asked to recall events which occurred during my Presidential year it is extremely difficult to pick out individual ones as so much happened to make the year enjoyable.


                From the Club’s point of view, I can recall induction of this year’s President, Monty Spandler, and also of making one of our founder members, Keith Horne, an Honorary Member of the Club.


                Haven Rotary Club has always been extremely grateful to Brian Potter for the assistance he has given in raising funds for charity. During my year in office, Brian and his staff at Potters Leisure Centre put on a show, which raised £5,173.26 for the Rotary Kosovo Appeal. A cheque for this sum was subsequently presented at the Club Assembly to Rotarian Brian Baxter, the Assistant District Governor East at that time, who accepted the cheque on behalf of the Rotary Charity Appeal.


                The Club in the past has strong ties with Youth Exchange and in 1990 Michiko Yamada from Japan was hosted on a year’s exchange with the Club. Rotarian Bill Cooke and his wife hosted Michiko for a few months, as did Alan Spinks and George Ermini, during her stay and kept in touch with her. Rotarian Bill and his wife subsequently attended Michiko’s wedding in Yokohama as representatives of the Haven Club.
