A large group of Rotarians, family, friends and sponsors attended this year’s District Changeover at The International in Brighton on Sunday June 3rd. We were all there of course to see the ‘passing of the baton’ from District Governor Peter Frueh to incoming DG Bronwyn Stephens. 
As is traditional at these events, the District Governor makes some awards and this was no exception.
Past District Governor Dennis Shore was awarded a Rotary Foundation Citation for Meritorious Service in acknowledgement of his many years work for TRF. 
In addition, Past District Governor Ian Knight OAM was acknowledged as a PolioPlus Pioneer for his efforts in initiating and promoting Rotary’s efforts in eradicating Polio. This includes the outstanding fundraising he achieved during his year as District Governor and his continued efforts. 
Our friends Marjorie and Bernie Gerlinger were presented with their 3rd Outstanding Service Award for their work at District, and Kerry Kornhauser OAM was named as the latest Royce Abbey Champion of Change for her work on Women in Rotary and the End Trachoma 2020 program.
