Visit to Etwall and Hilton 18th September

I managed to spend some time on my allotment this morning  - planted some garlic - before preparing to visit the Rotary Club of Etwall and Hilton in the evening.

Etwall and Hilton were successful in recruiting about a dozen new members in the last Rotary year, many of them being quite young.   During the evening President Ron Buxton told me that he intended to use this year as a time for consolidation and making sure that their recently recruited members are fully consolidated into the club - whilst still having some potential new members in the wings waiting to join.

With about 20 members at the meeting the atmosphere was convivial and joyfull.  After a very tasty meal I addressed the club about this year's theme of "Peace Through Service" and presented the president with an origami crane as a sign of hope for peace and a letter from the International President Sakuji Tanaka.

I look forward to visiting the club again later in the year.
