JORDANS AND DISTRICT ROTARY CLUB
Our principal home shown above is Beaconsfield Golf Club (see Map below for details) but also meet at Green Acres , Potkiln Lane HP9 2XB, please check meeting place shown in the Programme
We welcome our incoming President for the year 2017/18, Jenny Owen, who as you will realise is a lady, not something that took place in Rotary all that many years ago. She has proved a creative and active member of our Rotary Club and will ensure that it is a year during which the members will enjoy themselves at the same time as helping others.
Rotary is a worldwide organisation with 1.2 million members, in 34,000 clubs in over 200 countries. Our motto" Service above Self" reflects our aim to make a real and positive difference to the lives of people in need. We help (for example)
Locally donating to local charities, organising social events for the elderly, giving practise interviews to school leavers, running Stroke Awareness events, helping at the Beaconsfield Festival of Lights, sponsoring young people on adventure courses. Nationally by supporting chosen charities, giving to flood relief and other disasters. Internationally by sending shelterboxes to disaster areas,supporting Rotary,s Polio immunisation programme, collecting spectacles for Vision Aid,pioneering schemes like the supply of vital salt to remote villages in Nepal, donating to micro-credit projects in Africa. Often these projects are twinned with a Rotary Club in the local area, to ensure that the aid is delivered directly. Each local club like ours, though part of an international service organisation, is autonomous with it's own President and managing committee.
We meet on the 2nd and 4th Monday evenings at 7.30pm and on the 3rd at 5.30pm in venue shown in the weekly programme guide and if you want to find out more about what we do, you are welcome to join us. Our meetings are relaxed. friendly and informal. On most weeks we have a speaker on a topic of general interest, but an important part of every meeting is socialising with fellow members. We also have social visits to theatres etc., and regular events to which partners are invited. We are non-sectarian, non-political annon-ceremonial. In 2011 w were awarded a certificate as the best small Rotary Club in the South of England.
