Club visit from the District Governor

District Governor Martin's visit
The Rustenburg Rotary Club members had the privilege to become acquainted and spend some time with District Governor Martin, District Governor Ann Christina Forsyth-Thompson and PGPR Mark Doyle during their recent club visit.  
The first stop was Rusoord Old Age Home where our esteemed visitors got showed around the newly renovated dining room which was done by Rustenburg Rotary Club and friends. Also on the premises is a current club project in process, a Wall of Remembrance and garden.  Money raised from the plaques purchased will be going to the old age home.

 Next stop was at Topologo Hospice in Phokeng where Bishop Kevin and General Manager Steve were in discussion with DG Martin and DGPR Mark about a ROTARY FAMILY HEALTH DAY.  More will be revealed soon, stay “tuned in”.

Wildforlife, Rustenburg’s only animal rehabilitation centre was next on the list. Although the sun was very hot (38 degrees) and it was almost lunch time the party of Rotarians were eager to learn more from Dr. Schouwstra and Adri, the resident falconer, about the running of the shelter and the history of the animals. The newly completed irrigation system witch was done by Rustenburg Rotary and 3 engineering students, were showed off to the guest. The next step is a gardening project which will benefit the animals as well as the workers.

The last visit was to the club’s pride and joy, Bessies Care Centre. The club is in the process of renovating the bathrooms with the sponsorship of Elikulu Granite Works.  Although all Rotarians are regularly exposed to disabled children one could see that our visitors were a bit teary-eyed when they got introduced to some of the little fellows.

The visit was rounded off with a evening function with the Kloof Rotary Club. It was a pleasure spending time with our leaders and hope to see them soon.
