Linking Tiaong, Philippines

In a first for our club on 23 August 2004 we signed a sister club agreement with the Rotary Club of Tiaong in Quezon Province, Philippines District 3820.  It was a fitting gesture for our Rotary Centennial Year and followed a Friendship Exchange visit when one of our members, PP Reg Emmett and his wife, Annette, were part of a Friendship Exchange team visiting District 3820 last May.

PP Noguera (Nogi) Felino visited Hobart for a special meeting at which the agreement was signed in the present of our District Governor  Muriel Heron.
