The retired journalist, 72, from Garsfontein, has been a member of the club for more than six years, having joined after retirement in 2011.
“The first thing that came to my mind was to join a rotary club. So I went on the internet and chose the Sunrise club,” she said.
At the time, she never thought she would become its president: “I rather hoped I wouldn’t actually. I was happy to join and be part of the team. But over the six years I thoroughly enjoyed every moment with rotary.”
Gough said she made new friends and had an opportunity to make a difference in communities, which was important to her.
