President Megan presents John Christie with his Paul Harris Fellowship.
President Megan's tribute: "John Christie, on behalf of the Rotary Club of Newcastle Sunrise, I am honoured to present you with this Paul Harris pin, certificate. The symbolism in this recognition is to say Thank You for making a difference in this community and in the Kyampisi community in Uganda. We believe your life exemplifies the humanitarian and educational objectives of the Rotary Foundation. By accepting this pin you will join a family of well over 950,000 PH Fellows worldwide. We thank you for demonstrating, in both your life and your vocation, a commitment to helping persons in need here and around the world."

Friday 26 June 2015: The Customs House Hotel in Newcastle was the venue for 34 members, visitors and friends to enjoy a splendid Changeover Dinner. Newly installed President, Chris Page shares some thoughts "thank you to all who attended for making it so memorable. It was nice to have friends and guests attending, including former club members, some of whom I have know since joining RCNS in 1998." Chris added "the club has many strengths and I have seen so many situations where Rotary can be a source of unexpected enjoyment, let us think about how we can share this sense with others. I want to place a focus on membership as well as examining the best way to source a major fundraiser".
