We’re now well into the new Rotary year and that means the Club has a new President, one or two new members of the management team, and a bunch of new ideas for taking the Club forward into a (hopefully) largely post-pandemic world.
On 15th July, President Katy Harris handed over the Chain of Office to Sam Parkin for the 2021/22 year. Since taking over in July last year, Katy’s term has been challenging but successful. Club Members enjoy meeting face to face, normally over lunch, but the vast majority of 2020/21 meetings were virtual, via Zoom. We also had to cancel all of our traditional events & activities – Christmas street collections, Donkey Derby, Kids Out and the ever-popular Music in the Park.
Holding the Club together in the face of these setbacks wasn’t easy but was undoubtedly achieved and we have emerged in tact. Inevitably, we lost a few Members over the year but gained several new ones, which is a great outcome in the circumstances.
Until recently, Sam was the Chair of our Membership Committee. He has been influential in promoting new ideas & new directions for activities for the Club. Although we are currently one of the larger clubs in our area, many initiatives are aimed at growing & diversifying the Club’s membership whilst others are targeted at developing new ways to offer support and assistance to the community in and around Farnborough.
