On my way out of the Nelson hotel to the Abel Tasman trail I stumbled across the Rotary Club of Whakatu (Nelson, South Island, New Zealand) in progress! A quick intro to club president Steve Kelso could not be missed! Their topic of the day was Emergency Preparedness and I was asked to stay as my experience with Essex County EMS and hurricane readiness was of interest! Always a pleasure to meet new folks and Rotary is an instant relationship! A great group of folks.... wish I could have stayed for the meeting!
On October 2nd, Tappahannock Rotary Club welcomed two new members, General Carl Strock (sponsored by Bill Meredith) and Jay Brimmer (sponsored by John Lewis), and one returning member, Monty Gladding (sponsored by John Gregory).
