Drake Trailer – Paul Harris Certificate – Presentation 15th Sept 2018

Venue: Drake Trailers Australia - 60th Anniversary Celebration located at 19 Formation Street, Wacol

PP George Deen and PP Ray Deen have enjoyed over 50 years of business relationship with Drake Trailers and Ray suggested the RC of Archerfield should formally recognise the ongoing contribution and financial support provided by Drake Trailers.

On Saturday PP Ray addressed the crowd of supporters explaining the long association and support provided – then presented Sam Drake with a framed Certificate of Appreciation on behalf of the Rotary Club of Archerfield.

President Lester then presented a Paul Harris Certificate and medallion to John Drake who received the Award on behalf of Drake Trailers. Lester informed the crowd, attending the celebrations, of the contribution made by Drake Trailers to the Rotary Foundation of Rotary International in support of End Polio Now and explained how the Foundation also helps in allaying suffering, improving living conditions, and providing educational opportunities for young people somewhere in the world. On behalf of Rotary Lester offered John Drake his congratulations and sincere appreciation for his commitment to our common goals of world understanding and peace.

John Drake then proceeded to cut a huge chocolate cake to the applause of all attending. PP Terry who was also in attendance appeared to be enjoying his huge slice of the cake. I would like to thank PP Ray for recommending the presentation and coordination on the day. It helped showcase the good work achieved by Rotary.
