New Rotary Year – New President
The Rotary Year starts on 1st July and that’s the date when new Club Presidents take office.
Faversham Rotary Club’s President for the new year will be Dave Darby, taking over from Michael Hoey, who has lead the Club during a particularly challenging year.
Michael has the unique distinction of not holding a single face-to-face meeting with club members during his year as President, but that hasn’t stopped the Club from making a positive difference in Faversham.
Michael says, "I am proud of what the club has achieved in the past year. We supported local charities and helped local schools and St Vincent de Paul get support to families in difficulties. Our on-line Christmas stories also attracted thousands of views at a time when spirits were low. Dave is taking over a vibrant club and will make it an even more vibrant club in the year to come."
Incoming President Dave says, “It’s a great honour to be asked to be President for the forthcoming year. Faversham Rotary have for over 70 years been supporting local causes. During the pandemic, under Michael’s excellent leadership it has been no different, including providing Marshalls for the vaccine roll-out.”
Dave adds “I would encourage anybody who is likeminded in wanting to make a difference to check out our website
