|When you take on the role of a Rotary Club President, it is a tremendous opportunity to lead from the front.|
However, you never know what else will come to make that time just so extra special.
Last night however it was my privilege accompanied by Carol(who is our President in 2023-2024) to attend the Cowbridge (Gateway) Monday Club Dinner at the Bear Hotel Cowbridge.
I can only say what a tremendous host we had in Emily, who looked after us all evening.
The members of the Gateway Club are a very special group of people and both Carol and I were made to feel so welcome.
It was additionally , an honour to be able to present our cheque to their Chairman for the year.

A raffle run by Cowbridge Rotary Club over the weekend has raised hundreds of pounds for a voluntary courier charity that supports the NHS.
Stallholders at the Cowbridge Food and Drink Festival donated products ranging from chocolate brownies to gins, pickles, cheeses, and pasta, which allowed the club to create three hampers to win in the raffle.
Tickets cost £1.00 per strip and there were three winners in the raffle.
A total of £649.07 was raised which will be donated to Blood Bikes Wales, a courier service that supports the NHS with transferring blood supplies, documents, and other items between hospitals.
The charity was chosen by Malcolm Hallewell, president of the Cowbridge Rotary Club, who expressed his thanks to all who took part and the stallholders and traders for donating prizes. "What more could we have wished for? Great weather, great support, and a result that everyone who participated in our raffle at the Cowbridge Food and Drink Festival can be proud of," he said.
"Additionally, we must also thank the festival organisers for allowing us to carry out the raffle and trust we may be afforded the same opportunity next year."
Mr Hallewell continued: "Blood Bikes are so close to my heart for the work they do, and it's been a pleasure to support them this year as I personally know of the valuable work they voluntarily carry out."
Cowbridge Rotary Club is also looking to recruit new members and would be pleased to hear from anyone who could be interested to ensure their community work continues to move forward.

Cowbridge Rotary is based in the lovely market town of Cowbridge in the Vale of Glamorgan. Members, who are from Cowbridge and the surrounding area, and from all walks of life, support the local community by volunteering their time in a range of different activities to help others.
The club usually meets most Monday evenings at the Bear Hotel with a meal and sometimes with a speaker, to enjoy good company and to plan our activities of service and charitable work.
We donate about £15,000 each year to our charitable causes, money we raise each year through car boot sales, concerts and other fund raising events. We work closely with local schools, organising competitions to help young people develop their skills. We also provide support and entertainment for the elderly.
