Children Day Out 2016_s3

Childrens day out 2016

On Saturday 14 May the club took out 29 children from SOS Chilrens Home Thornton to the Rotary Blue Train park in Moullie Point.

The Childrens Day Out Project is an annual favorite and is always very exciting and full of good moments. The children thoroughly enjoyed the train rides and zip line.

Induction of two New Members

A highlight of any Club President’s tenure is the induction of new members into the club and RI.

On 10th March 2016 the club proudly inducted Jean and Sanmari Crous.

Jean and Sanmari had been visiting the club for several meetings, and had already become very involved in club activities, meetings and social events. They had moved to the Southern Suburbs a year ago, and had been looking for a meaningful way to enjoy their leisure hours in the community. Fortunately for all parties they discovered Wynberg Rotary Club.

The rest, as they say, is history!
