The setting up of the Rotary Book Sale is always a massive effort by a lot of people.  The books have to be taken to a unit in the Industrial area for sorting, pricing and displaying and then on to the Cromwell Bowling Club, who hire us their facility for the Rotary Book Sale event.  This means a lot of work for a few people.  Always on hand is R & R Hi-ab, whose staff are unfailingly cheerful and clever with manoeuvring their machinery when they bring the container full of books to the Bowling Club. 
So, on Thursday evening, members of the Cromwell Rotary Club invited Ray & Stacey Moran along with one of their staff, Scott, to enjoy a drink with them, and have a sneak preview of the books which were ready for the sale on Friday. 
We knew that Ray wouldn’t like a lot of fuss.  President Pam Broadhead and Nick Wood, the incoming Rotary District Governor for 2021-22 had great pleasure in presenting Ray with the highest award from Rotary, a Paul Harris Fellowship to thank him for his generosity and work in the Community.  Congratulations to Ray and his team.
The Rotary Book Exchange container at Freeway, which was kindly donated by Ray Casey of R & R Hi-ab, is again open.
