President Tom Stobie, hosted a magnificent Burns Night celebration for the Rotary Club of Taunton. Members, family, friends and the Inner Wheel came together at the Taunton Racecourse to enjoy a traditional evening of haggis, ‘neeps and tatties’ alongside a bagpipe serenade and entertaining speeches, all dedicated to the legendary ‘Rabbie’ Burns.
Such vibrant evenings are a regular feature of our very sociable Club and we are pleased to announce that our President elect, Peter renshaw has decided that a repeat of this highly successful evening will be held in January 2022.
Not only does the Club organise many fundraising activities to provide service to local charities and hold competitions and events for young people and the community, we also take time out to enjoy ourselves and our fellowship. This Burns Night was a fabulous example of our 'coming together' for fun and friendship.
The Club also keeps up-to-date with local and national activities through a programme of speakers. Members are from a range of professional backgrounds and enjoy a range of ‘vocational’ visits to other organisations and in doing so they take time out to enjoy each other’s company.
