Toasting Rotary Clubs

Toasting Rotary clubs from around the world!


At our regular meetings we toast the members of a Rotary club in another part of the world. The toast reminds us of the international nature of Rotary and that clubs like ours are active and doing good on every continent.


“From all of us here to all of you there. From beautiful Guernsey, a Rotarian Cheer!”

Hello Simon, Thank you so much for your email and what an inspiring idea. We do have associations with other clubs around the World and their members have joined our regular weekly meetings on the odd occasion – especially now that we can only Zoom in to the meeting. It does have some silver linings. I will be informing the club at our meeting next Tuesday that I have received this email from you and will be raising the suggestion that we follow suit.  Any idea that reminds us of our history and International connections is a good one in my mind. Thanks again and kind regards, John Stephenson PHF, Secretary.

Hi Rod, What a coincidence. Last night at our Rotary Club of Kloof meeting, we raised a glass and drank a toast to your club. I told our members about your contact with SA and having visited our club, and a bit about your club and also how well SA Virologist Nicola Brink has done. I believe she has received an award recently. So thanks for the toast. Stay well. Warm regards, Reg Courtney, President.

Many thanks for your recent email informing us that your Club had given a toast to our Club at your meeting on 6 January. We were delighted to be able to announce this at our meeting on 13 January and we duly reciprocated! We discovered from our membership that a number of them had flown out to Guernsey to visit you and that one of our founder (I think) members had moved to the island, establishing a connection between our two Clubs. Personally, I have very fond memories of Guernsey which I have visited on a number of occasions. First, as a boy scout, my group regularly had our summer camp at a farm at Pleinmont. The story there was that the farmer had been evacuated to our home town (Accrington) during the Second World War and was kind enough to offer us the privilege of camping on his land as a ‘thank you’. We had some truly memorable holidays walking the coast paths and playing in the gun towers in the dark. So much was I enchanted by Guernsey that I subsequently went with a group of sixth form friends and then, after I married, with my wife. Guernsey holds a very special place in my memory and I hope I shall have the opportunity to visit the island again. So, as this year’s President of Bristol Breakfast, I am especially glad to be able to send best wishes to you and your club. John Whittaker, President, Bristol Breakfast Rotary Club

 

 

I was the pilot that flew a group of us to your club many years ago. The member who moved to Guernsey was Norman Dewey. I heard that he had been quite poorly and he must be elderly if he’s still alive. Also I know Nick Brown who is/was a member. Regards, Julian Telling.

How wonderful that our fellow Rotarians in Guernsey thought of us and raised a glass! We returned the gesture with much friendship today and were delighted to do so. This is a great idea and we are going to adopt it so thank you most sincerely. Yours in Rotary, warm wishes Norma Johnston, President Weston Rotary on behalf of all members of the club.
