Honouring 80 Years and counting… of service by Tully Rotary

Craig and Elle-May Teitzel receiving the Paul Harris Fellowship Award

Last Saturday night saw the celebration of eighty years of history and service for the Tully Rotary Club. Three new members, and two new corporate members were welcomed into the Tully Rotary Club. The proprietors of local business, Teitzel’s Supa IGA, Craig and Elle-May, were awarded a Paul Harris Fellowship, which is one of Rotary’s highest awards, for their contributions to the local community.

Those invited to attend a dinner hosted at Hotel Tully warmly shared in the journey of the Tully Rotary, how well it has performed, and how much benefit it has provided to the Tully community. 

The Tully Rotary’s President’s collar now bears the names of past presidents over the 80 years, together with that of its current President, Malcolm Bright, who proudly wore the collar for the last time before it is retired to be framed, as this is the last year of district 9550. District 9560 will be launched this year in July. 

The New District 9560 is the second biggest district in the world and covers the region from Thursday Island to Bundaberg and out to Tennant Creek and up to Dilli. Governor-Elect, Martti Kannken, acknowledged that although it would be hard to travel the length and breadth of his district, he would make sure that he did.
