Fellowship 2014 - 2015

Planned Fellowship Events.

Rotary Year commencing July 2014 President, Rodney Dransfield Wilson.

Members:- Russell Williams, Paul Venner, Peter Smith, Richard Turner,  Peter Horton, Stuart Coates,  David Baxter.

The objective of our committee is to organise a varied programme of events on a regular basis throughout the Rotary year. Fellowship is the glue that bonds us together, enhancing team development and generating the enthusiasm to help others through service.


Tuesday 29th July 2014. Although a fifth Tuesday we are to have a regular meeting day at lunchtime, but with no speaker, simply an opportunity, particularly for newer members, to get to know each other better. We have opted for a different less formal venue, perhaps in casual attire over a pub lunch. Subject to agreement and to meet our objectives we will consider an overrun of say 30 minutes.

Saturday 16th August. Late Saturday AFTERNOON stroll or Treasure Hunt at the village of Wath, followed by a BBQ hosted by David Williams at his home. [Date to confirm]{P.S}

Tuesday 30th September. Themed Evening Dinner marking the Centenary of the outbreak of WW1. To include exhibition of period artefacts, Costumed Guests, Military Medals, Death Plaques, Roll Call of Fallen Family of Rotary Members, and perhaps a later planting of Poppies. Dripping Sandwiches.{D.O.B., S.C} 

      Tuesday 16th December. Annual Christmas Dinner, to include invitation to Rotary Widows at a venue in or close to the centre of Ripon. Possible Venues and top class caterers are being considered and will be decided upon shortly.{R.W.}


The programme for the second half of the Rotary Year will be formulated later, but we will consider suggestions submitted by members of the club and may include, a visit similar to the one to Countdown the Theatre/ or Ripon Cathedral from the HEIGHTS/ Quiz night/ Concert / Weekend away say in the Lakes/Abroad Amsterdam/ Bruges

The entire committee will look to help in activities organised by other committees in the club, and the Yorkshire Day Dinner to be hosted by Presidents Rodney and Isobel, on Friday 1st August 2014.
