Videos of the Evening
 
David & Gabrielle showed the YouTube video "Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal - Rotary Conference 2018" the speech in which Princess Anne, an honorary member of Rotary, paid tribute to Rotary members for the work they do in communities across the globe including the End Polio campaign and the Rotary Action Group Rotarians Easing Problems of Dementia with Memory Cafes. Rotary is also an approved activity provider of the Duke of Edinburgh award.
 
David and Gabrielle also shared the hilariously inspiring address "9 Life Lessons" by Tim Minchin at the University of Western Australia graduation ceremony in 2017.
 
Huge thanks to David and Gabrielle for all your efforts to provide the club with fantastic speeches to watch each week!
