As well as members of the Club (including three of their four joint presidents, Jane, Ann and Paul) one prosective new member and two other guests, myself and Gail, were also present. (Joint President Gill was cruising the Norwegian Fjords) We sat down round Jill's dining table for an informal but lovely meal of chicken caserole, followed by two delicious home made cakes (Thanks to Rtn Denise Eardley for these) Unfortunately Jill was not able to stay for the meeting, having been called away to an emergency meeting of St. John's Ambulance, in which she is deeply involved.
After a few club announcements, including reporting the award of the District "Best Project" award for their involvement with local schools and the DARE project at The District Handover. I added my congratulations on this achievement.
I then gave my talk (you will have to come to a meeting to find out the details.) which was followed by numerous questions about Rotary and the attendance of Gail and myself at the Rotary Assembly in January.
This club whilst small in numbers very much makes up for it in commitment and action. They have a very full year of projects planned. I wish them all the best for the forthcoming year.
