After a special three course meal several members spoke about Manfred's involvement and exploits in the club over the years, with a number of photographs being shown that highlighted these exploits. I was then asked to speak about Manfred which I was delighted to do. I then presented Manfred with a framed certificate thanking him for his 49 years of service in the District and an RIBI certificate of 45 years service.
The evening was rounded off when President Elect Denis Jones presented Manfred with a Paul Harris Sapphire pin in recognition of the service he has given to mankind.
