Our Weekly Meetings/ PDG Ron Duxbury's reminiscences
PDG Ron gave a talk on Zoom to over 20 members of the club.
The speaker at the recent video conference meeting of Kendal Rotary Club was Past District Governor, Ron Duxbury, from Furness Rotary Club.
He regaled us with humorous tales of his time whilst working as a presenter on Radio Cumbria and about his experiences giving football commentaries on local matches and giving live interviews of players following the matches.
The players had to be reminded that it was all done live so they had to be reminded of this or the language could be choice!
