The head of Rotary for Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Nauru and part of Australia will attend the Rotary Club of Lae’s Annual Fundraising Black Tie Ball in late July. District Governor Elect Carolyn Krueger made the announcement to Club officials recently. The District Governor has already visited Papua New Guinea in April to meet with Rotary Clubs to train Rotary leaders and discuss their club plans for community service.
“Papua New Guinea is very much on my agenda this coming year. In terms of highlighting to Australian-based clubs the kind of community projects they can help Papua New Guineans with or in promoting Rotary to PNG-based companies that are looking for a meaningful and effective way to undertake their community service obligations, I want to promote Rotary as the means to do so.”
“Rotary is a collection of business and professional leaders united worldwide who conduct humanitarian projects, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and work toward world understanding and peace. The local Rotary Club is a really practical way for professional people to act for a better community where they live. Because it is made up of professional people, it has the added bonus of assisting people to develop their business networks and leadership skills. I want to commend it to company executives and their professional staff.”
Lae Club President Steve McNeilly said the Annual Black Tie Ball has become the best social event in Lae. “Entertainment is by the now internationally lauded Tambuna Track Studio Band of Madang. The ball is very popular with the ladies because they get a chance to dress up in their very best and have a fabulous evening”.
The Rotary Club of Lae will be hosting its annual fundraising Black Tie Ball at the Lae International Hotel on Saturday, the 23rd of July, 2011. All proceeds from the Club’s Annual Black Tie Ball will go towards various Rotary service projects both at club level and on a broader scale.
