Double Rotary celebrations at Hope Valley

The evening of Wednesday 7th December was another memorable occasion for Hope Valley Rotarians, as Angela Wardle and Lesley Kraushaar were formally ‘inducted’ as members of the Rotary Club of Hope Valley. Angela and Lesley have attended many meetings at our Club as well as assisting members in a number of our Rotary Club’s charity fund raising events.

Rtn Chris Kraushaar makes a short speech and introduces Lesley Kraushaar to those assembled for Lesley’s formal induction as a Rotarian.


Rtn and joint RCHV ‘Rotarian of the Year’ Karina Guarino formally introduces Angela Wardle.


President Elect Rtn Dr Allen Hutchinson explains that the basis of Rotary is fellowship, friendship and concern for others, and welcomes Angie and Lesley into R otary; a world–wide organisation and the largest fellowship of men and women in the world.


Our President presents Lesley with her Rotary pin and District 1220 Directory.


The official part of the ceremony is completed and Ian extends a warm welcome to our two ‘new Rotarians’ Lesley and Angela.
