My gratitude goes to
- the RCN board of 2014-15.
- President Kamal for leading from the front.
- Rtn. Faith for being accessible and making the fund timely availability of the funds.
- Rtns. Nelson Mburu and Irina Wandera for the leadership on the Sunshine rally and SCAW 2015.
- Rtns. Joshi and Salim for their service and commitment to the Rural Blindness eradication project.
This list is not limited to the above named Rotarians. I have depended on the experience of the individuals in the list to move our programs forward in the current Rotary year.
An appeal will be made to individuals, particularly new Rotarians, to join and get the true experience of service above self.
Yours in Service,
Gideon Akwabi, Club Service Director 2015-16
