John Wiseman

President 1991 - 92

                   At the beginning of my year in office I encouraged all our members to follow the Rotary ideal of “service above self”, and to enjoy Rotary. Whether this was followed with the enthusiasm I had hoped, I’m not sure, but I know that I had the wholehearted support during my year of each and every member.

                  I note that during my year the Ladies Christmas Dinner was for the first time held in the evening, and of course, as you all know, the “Wiseman Initiative” was born, which has been called upon several times during the intervening years. I also began the Great Yarmouth Schools Young Musician of the Year competition, which ran for several years. It was during my year that we, as a Club, had the great pleasure in hosting our Japanese exchange student Michiko Yamada.

                  Unfortunately in August of my year I had a problem with a detached retina which needed an operation, but fortunately I only had to miss one meeting.

                  In October 1991 we went to the District Conference in Bournemouth, which I believe was the last visit by this Club to an away venue for this conference.

              I, with several other members, visited the Nene Valley Rotary Club for an excellent weekend of fellowship in January 1992, primarily to attend their Charter Night.

                  In May 1992, I, with several members, went to Winschoten for a weekend to be with our then “twinned” Club.

                  I had a wonderful year being your President for the year 1991/92, and was privileged to be allowed that honour. My heartfelt thanks got to every member for making my year so memorable.

              Don’t forget, “ENJOY ROTARY”.
