The elegant Tasting Room hummed with happy voices and goodwill at a splendid dinner, catered for by Anita from OEMF Caterers and the Greater Kruger Hotel School & Training Centre, in honour of Wilana Manderson’s induction as President of the Rotary Club of Hoedspruit for 2021/22.
The annual President’s Award was handed to Alan Partington, Club Treasurer, for the incredibly tough task of keeping the Club’s finances in sterling order during the past, very unpredictable, Covid year.
Jozua van Wyk from Hoedspruit FM was presented with a Rotary Merit Award for his dedication to the Hoedspruit community.
Becky Harmon and Stella Horgan, of Zingela Ulwazi, were the guests of honour. Zingela Ulwazi is a non-profit organization collaborating with local communities and organisations to create projects focused on resilience, leadership, creativity and prosperity. During the past year, Rotary has collaborated with them to empower women in the rural community through permaculture vegetable gardening which enables them to, not only feed their families, but also earn an income from their remarkably successful small gardens.
Rotarians the world over will continue to “Serve to change Lives” in the coming year. If you would like to join or support Hoedspruit Rotary, in any way please contact President Wilana Manderson (083 275-8862).
