Rotary governor ‘very impressed’ with Knysna
Tthe newly appointed district governor of Rotary in the Western Cape, Lynette Stassen, recently visited Knysna.
While in town she was taken to visit the Knysna Education Trust model preschool, which has been one of the Rotary Club of Knysna’s major projects over the past couple of years. Here she met some of the teachers and interacted with a few of the children and overall was very pleased with the whole set up.
She was then taken on a tour of the areas most affected by the fires to see first-hand what the local people have experienced. Rotary Knysna has been very active in not only collecting and distributing food, clothing and other goods, but also in the distribution of a large amount of financial assistance that has been offered to victims of the fires.
Overall, the district governor was very impressed with the work being done by the local Rotary club, especially considering that a large number of their members are older – but not less energetic – than most other clubs. –
