The weather was ideal for this year's Club BBQ and Handover.
Lots of Club members had joined forces to put up the Marquee in Norman and Sue's garden. It provided some welcoming shade for the diners. Neale and his helpers organised some excellent BBQ food. Everyone commented on the excellent choice of meat which was sourced from the new High street Butcher, Christian Alba, by our own James Brown. Our thanks also go to Squires Bakery for the rolls.
A surprise announcement from
Ron silenced everyone as he read out a citation leading to Graeme Sleeman
receiving the honour of a Paul Harris Fellowship. Ron explained to the club's
members that the award was given for Graeme's charity work both as a member of
Round table and for his community work as a magistrate. Ron also praised
Graeme's commitment to Hungerford Rotary club not only as treasurer but also
arranging a number of events over the years including The Santa Fun Run and the
Bruce Barge trips. President Fiona presented the award to Graeme.
dining commenced the Presidential handover took place. Outgoing President Fiona
presented Hungerford Rotary Club's new President Norman with his chain of
office and in turn Norman presented President Elect Mike with his chain.
An excellent evening was enjoyed by all.
Thanks to Isobel for the picture of the Rotary Statesmen.
