SADDLEWORTH ROTARY CLUB CELEBRATES ITS CHARTER NIGHT IN STYLE

Saddleworth Rotary Club held their annual Charter Night at The White Hart on Wednesday 22nd February. This traditional and impressive Rotarian event, which is celebrated in Rotary Clubs the world over was very well attended by members, officers and guests from other clubs. It is to commemorate the founding of each individual Rotary Club - of which there are very many, globally. We were particularly fortunate at this year's event to have as our speaker, Eve Conway. Eve is the President of Rotary International in Britain and Ireland and is a well-known and respected figure on the national Rotary stage. After a delicious three course meal, the Club heard speeches from various members celebrating the work and traditions of Rotary here in Saddleworth, locally, nationally and world wide. This most convivial evening culminated in a passionate speech from Eve, focussing on the hugely successful Rotary campaign to eradicate polio the world over."
