Out & About with DG Dale

Hello Rotarians in D9800,

I am so impressed by your strength in these uncertain times as you navigate yet another lockdown.  I have greatly appreciated the opportunity to connect with many of you through my recent club visits.

This month has thrown us yet more challenges with lockdown number 6 following so closely on from the previous two lockdowns. I am so proud of the Rotarians in our District who have risen to this challenge and kept their Clubs going, flexibly adapting meetings sometimes at very short notice.
