The 82nd Charter celebration of the Rotary Club of Sutton in Ashfield too place at the Hostess Restaurant, at Sookholme on 2nd October. With one hundred Rotariansd and guests present it was a very enjoyable evening. The quality and quantity of food served was excellent, with several options for ech course on the menu to choose from. Service was efficient and generally the venue did extremely well.
President Danny Patterson was in the chair and his main guest for the event was Tim Robinson a former Nottinghamshire and England cricketer, who recounted a number of amusing stories of his time in the game.
Prior to his talk and during the familiar roll call of clubs, all the members of the Rotary Club of Kirkby in Ashfield gave a rendition of "Danny Boy" with new words penned for the occasion. Apparently singing the greetings of the club is a long standing tradition at this charter - and it was highly entertaining.
The whole evening was relaxed and very enjoyable and as they say, "a good time was had by all".
My driver this evening was Rotarian David Collard and many thanks to him for accompanying me.
