The DG who was accompanied on the visit by the district secretary, Rotarian Segun Adewakun and some other district leaders carried out the induction proper of the six new members who were present out of the total number of eight new members that were actually certified by the club.
DG Ogunbadejo, while decorating the new members with the Rotary pin told them that the pin reflects that they are truthful, honest and service oriented. “Whenever you wear the pin, let your actions reflect what the pin says”, the DG told the new members.
The Governor, during the club assembly, commended the club for its recent donation to Agnus Dei Orphanage Home in Okota area of the Lagos state, stating that the club has done well in the area of service in less than one year of existence as a Rotary club. “You have done well in the past seven months. I want to encourage you to do more”, the DG added.
He also advised the club to leverage its forthcoming one year anniversary in March as a fund-raising event which will help the club to generate funds for service projects and other humanitarian services.
“I want to thank all of you for starting well but it’s not he who starts well that matters but he who ends well”, DG Ogunbadejo further stated, encouraging the club members not to relent in their efforts but rather, double their efforts.
