First Gathering of our Club

Wed 1st February 2012

The First Club Meeting

The first Thirteen members for the Rotary Club of Swindon Phoenix

The first gathering of our new club was held on Wednesday 1st February 2012. It was held at the Jury's Inn Hotel located in the centre of Swindon. It was a Black Tie affair, not our normal weekly meeting dress code, but this really was a special night to celebrate. The two Club Banner boards were supplied by courtesy of Rotarian Andrew Gleed. Don't they look fab?
