World Wide Zoom

Several of our members regularly join the Kelso Rotary Club in their "Kelso Conversations"


November 5th 2020

Some of us joined with the Kelso Club to their "Conversations Evening". We had a marvellous opportunity to listen to a talk by the President of Rotary International, Holger Knaack, talking from his home in Germany. He also made the point that we had to keep up with the times and that Covid-19 had made us all look at other ways of working. We need active Rotarians who are prepared for change. We need to lower our age profile and this might mean creating new clubs and different ways of working. We need to embrace social media and Facebook was perhaps the best medium to use. Using social media was a good way of finding new members. 

This is a big advantage of our zoom meetings, we can listen to anyone from all over the world and, indeed, the Kelso Conversations have an audience from 5 continents.
