Rotary International’s 111th Birthday

To celebrate Rotary’s 111tRotary's Birthday Cakeh birthday on March 23 our club invited those volunteers who had readily given their time selling raffle tickets to a party. Special Event coordinator Rotarian Alan introduced President Jim who thanked the volunteers without whom there would have been┬áno raffle. He explained the role of Rotary through it’s founders eyes and surmised what characteristics Paul Harris would have had as a modern Rotarian. Most senior person present this morning, Past District Governor John Downing, was asked to cut the cake and everyone sang Happy Birthday to Rotary.
