This year The Rotary Club of Tywyn (the club) celebrated the granting of the club charter by holding a dinner at which the achievements of the club during the previous year can be remembered and celebrated.
The club president Anthony Pearson organized a dinner at the Tynycornel Hotel in Tal-y-Llyn on Thursday 30th March, where 55 Rotarians and guests enjoyed an excellent meal in beautiful surroundings on the shore of Tal-y-Llyn lake at the foot of Cader Idris.
During dinner, President Anthony welcomed members and guests, and thanked everyone who had helped the club achieve another very successful year of fellowship and service to the community.
The district governor Molly Youd was then invited to give her address in which she highlighted the importance to local and international charities of the work of the club and especially for organizing “Race The Train’ where runners try to beat the steam train on the Tal-y Llyn Railway from Tywyn to Abergynolwyn and back.
Race The Train is one of the most important events in the annual calendar of the local area that brings in an estimated £2 million in revenue to the local economy. For the outstanding success of the race and on behalf of Rotary International, district 1180, Governor Molly Youd presented president Anthony and two founder members of the club with the Wallasey Cup. An award given to Rotary clubs in the district for outstanding achievement.
After dinner the guests were treated to an excellent after dinner address by Peter Slack who gave an entertaining and highly amusing talk on ‘Farming in the Peak District’
