OUR MEETINGS AND SOCIAL EVENTS
WE are not a secret society. To dispel the myth - we are not a group of men - our club is composed of almost an equal number of men and women. We welcome guests to our club - all you have to do is drop us an email or telephone our secretary.details
President Gill Poole recently outlined her plans for the new Rotary year 2017/18.
The club is attempting to revitalise and modernise its approach whilst retaining the central core features of Rotary.
Our club committee structure has been changed to try and ensure a wider involvement of members.
Publicity and media interaction has been given to a small group who will support other committees in their work. The club is also committed to Rotary Club Central as a means of setting itself targets and to monitor our achievements.
She affirmed Rotary can only flourish when there is friendship and fun. When tasks are shared more work gets done!
She hoped we would continue to build on our achievement in becoming a Dementia Friendly club. It is also hoped our aspirations to develop corporate and associate membership status can be achieved within the year.
In terms of our connection with the community, Gill hopes we can continue to work in partnership with like-minded organisations; our work with Mirfield Round Table and Mirfield Town Partnership being two notable features.
Gill has long been a driving force for RYLA and hopes to help young people by sponsoring candidates for the Youth Leadership programme and also supporting a young person to join the Youth Sail programme.
Gill commended the international work done by members and affirmed our continued commitment to raise funds to eradicate Polio. The Shoebox Appeal which provides so much joy to those who receive these little gifts is also to continue.
