Not the most exciting day in my Rotary calendar - somewhat mundane even.
In the morning I had a meeting with RTn Michael Longdon about the Rotary / Inner Wheel Thanksgiving Service schedluled for 2.30pm on 16th June at All Saints Church, Ripley. Just planning the order of service and content etc.
6pm saw me at the Novotel, Long Eaton with the other members of the District Leadership Development and Training Team, making final arrangements for the District Assembly being held at The Clifton Campus of Nottingham Trent University on Saturday, 20th April. Again somewhat mundane but necessary.
Straight after this meeting there followed the District Council meeting. One item of note from this meeting was the election of Rtn Roger Summers, Rotary Club of Amber Valley as the ict Governor for 2015 - 2016. Congratulations to him.
Two very informative presentations were given after the main business part of the meeting. One was by John Pearce of the RC of Sutton in AShfield regarding a community project they instigated in the town which is reaping substantial rewards. The second was by Rtn. Keith Jones, RC of Hope Valley regarding Rotary Friendship Exchanges. He was trying to let the District know that these are a valuable part of Rotary and are aopen to all Rotarians to take part.
