50 not out

John achieves 50 years of Rotary service


Fifty not out is a great score, particularly in cricket please tell the England team, but fifty years in Kirkby Rotary is fantastic and to commemorate this milestone  Rotarian John Chambers receives his long service citation fom club president Rotarian Eric Ashby.

John, a former head teacher at schools in Kirkby and Sutton, joined the club in 1971, he has held many offices within the club and was president in the late1980's.

During his membership he has been involved in numerous club activities and often he played Santa Clause at Christmas events when the real one was busy elsewhere.  Some of the many changes that have happened during his membership are Rotary's eradictaion programme of Polio worldwide, the introduction of women members into Rotary and many projects both in the community and worldwide.

Keep on batting John.
