President Madeleine East and Jim Duckworth cutting the 61st birthday cake.
The cake baked by Jim was delicious!
At the clubs last dinner meeting it celebrated its 61st birthday. The evening was full of fun and humour with guests, partners and special guest Past District Governor Craig Horrocks present. The social committee had done a great job of giving the room a real festive atmosphere and the evening was full of fun and humour with many “lucky number” prizes being distributed amongst the throng. In addition the big “Have a Go” jackpot raffle was drawn with Ian Fox taking out first prize and Fred Holland winning second prize.
The night was also marked by the presentation of RI President Holger Knaack’s long service awards for 2020/21 (somewhat belated due to Covid) to 13 recipients including a crystal globe to Jim Duckworth for over 50 years of service to Rotary.
Prior to the start of the cub’s birthday social Craig Horrocks made a presentation to a Club Assembly on Rotary’s Regionalization Pilot project being undertaken in Oceania and the UK. Club members voted in favour of proceeding with the Pilot and President Madeleine will carry that vote forward to the next stage. This will be an exciting time to see how the different approach will help take Rotary into the future..
