Ro­tary Round-up

Midweek Visiter - - Rotary Round-up -

THE Ro­tary Club of Formby re­cently held its 51st Char­ter Night.

This event is held an­nu­ally to mark the Club’s Char­ter be­ing granted.

This year the Club has been in ex­is­tence for 51 years.

The Club’s Pres­i­dent, Alan Gib­son and his wife, Viv, wel­comed their guests. Once again the Club at­tended a din­ner at West Lancs Golf Club which was ex­cel­lent.

The Dis­trict Gover­nor, Steve Martin with his wife Maria, was in at­ten­dance and he gave a short speech to the guests. Once the speeches were done and dusted guests were treated to an en­ter­tain­ment from Ian Clark.

He is a lo­cal racon­teur, song­writer and mu­si­cian.

He kept his au­di­ence amused with funny sto­ries and some of the songs he has writ­ten.

It was a very en­joy­able evening and the Club’s thanks go to the staff at West Lancs Golf Club for their ex­cel­lent ser­vice.

New Ro­tary Clubs are spring­ing up all over the area.

The lat­est one is in West Kirby and their First Char­ter is be­ing cel­e­brated in a very dif­fer­ent way.

The way the Club runs is dic­tated by its mem­bers whilst still be­ing within the Ro­tary ethos.

Dis­trict Gover­nor Steve Martin and his wife will be at­tend­ing this Char­ter Night.

All Ro­tar­i­ans and the com­mu­nity are pleased to have a pres­ence again in this area.

Ro­tary is so em­bed­ded in its com­mu­nity and help and work­ing to­gether is needed now more than ever.

It is just an or­gan­i­sa­tion of peo­ple who want to help and give some­thing back to the lo­cal com­mu­nity and around the world whilst hav­ing fun and meet­ing new peo­ple.
