Lockdown in the UK may have temporarily paused the Rotary Club of Nottingham’s meetings in person, but that doesn’t mean that our commitments to each other and the community we serve have stopped.
Our online weekly Zoom meetings have proved to be incredible popular with members and visitors alike, with up to 35 people joining in at any one time! Indeed, the Rotary Club of Nottingham connected the world at the beginning of May with their weekly meeting joined by participants from the Rotary Club of Philadelphia (including their Club President and a Past District Governor); Rotaractors from Bulgaria and Jamaica; and regular members hailing from Finland, Hungary and France.
The Club has been focussing on learning more about our fellow Rotarians, including new and older members providing an insight into how they became members of Rotary, their careers and family history. That has prompted plenty of questions and engagement.
We also held a successful online AGM with 25 members in attendance. We agreed to continue to honour all widowers as Honorary Members, received updates on those members unable to join us for health reasons and agreed to continue to meet online on a weekly basis.
Our future speakers have been announced as:
8 June – Club Assembly, we will be joined by AG Martyn as we review our 2020/21 Club Programme
6 July – Geof Bosworth, an opportunity to hear from our incoming President
13 July – Adrian Hatch, Workaid
Please do let us know if you are interested in joining us for our weekly Rotary meeting on Monday night at 6pm, everyone welcome!
