THE Rotary Club of Bombala held its changeover luncheon on Saturday, July 5.

Thirty-nine Rotarians, partners and friends of Rotary gathered for a lovely lunch to celebrate the changing of the guard from president Jim Longden to president Grantley Ingram. 

District Governor, Maureen Manning, outlined the history of Rotary and the effect the organisation has had over the past years in the Bombala district,  Australia and the world. 

Outgoing president Jim awarded special club awards: The Dick Haebich Cap was presented to past president Rob Letts, the Hammer to past president Glen Warren and the Paul Harris Fellow to past president Fiona Crawford.

They reported on the numerous activities which had been organised by the club in the previous 12 months. 

The club undertook a number of activities to raise funds, support youth and the district and distributed about $10,000 locally, nationally and internationally.

Grantley Ingram was inducted as the president for 2014/15 and introduced his board: Jim Longden, Jak Cuttle, Chris Cuttle, Lesley Smith, Dick Cross, Glen Warren, Ngaire McCrindle and Pam Wood-Davies.
