Meetings at Derby and Belper 18th February

Lunchtime saw me attend the weekly meeting of the Rotary Club of Derby, in company with a group of the Past District Governors and the District Governor Elect, Peter Moralee.    After enjoying a lovely meal at the Derbyshire Cricket Ground Pavilion and a talk by John England the PDG Group retired to another room to listen to DGE Peter tell us about his visit to San Diego and his ideas for 2013-14.   

The theme for that year is "Engage Rotary - Change Lives" and Peter explained that as well as changing the lives of others, by fully engaging with Rotary activities we can change, for the better, the lives of Rotarians.    PDG Gordon gave the vote of thanks to Peter.

In the evening I had the opportunity to again visit my own Club, Belper and Duffield, where we had a Presentation Evening, where cheques were presented to various organisations and several representatives spoke about their work.  Unfortunately President Graham was unable to be present as he had a prior engagement, but most fortunately President Elect Hilary stood in for him and did an absolutely excellent job.  The evening was really enjoyable and it was nice not to have a speaking part, just sit back and relax - just like old times.
