Thursday 9th Nov we hosted a large group of 18 Rotarians & guests for a BBQ dinner at the Lions Clubhouse at Kingston. Most of our visitors were from the Rotary Club of Alfredton, Victoria, but the group also comprised other Australian clubs and included Past District Governors & Club Presidents.
All in attendance enjoyed an excellent BBQ dinner catered by Jasmine with Peter, Lynlee, Andrew and Ian cooking sausages, rissoles, and chicken kebabs on the BBQ’s.
Following our desert of apple & rhubarb crumble, those present were enthralled by our Guest Speaker Mary-Lou Corcoran. Mary-Lou recently arrived on Island to take up the position of General Manger, Wave Hospitality Norfolk Island. She recounted her very impressive life journey to the present day where she is looking forward to enjoying work and community here on Norfolk Island. Her background in hospitality is extensive, but her resume includes other professional undertakings including a 4-year term as Mayor of Victor Harbour in South Australia. A very enjoyable evening with many favourable comments from our visitors.
