Colin Mitchell, member and past President of the Club, gave an online tour of the Club website, showing members the extraordinary range of items on the Club’s website. He randomly clicked on various sections commenting on interesting events going back to the early years of our millennium, many of which had unexpected outcomes. For example, a report of a recent garden party at a member’s house caught the attention of the grandson of a prior owner of that house, who then got in touch through the website offering to meet and have a chat about ‘old times”. Photos of balls organised by the Club brought back memories of Rotary Foundation students. One photographed dancing with (now past president) Frank Quinault became the President of a Rotary Club in Oklahoma. Events and Meeting details are open to the public, but the members area is secure to only members of the Club. Within the members area are all the club housekeeping details. ‘There’s a story,’ Colin said, ‘behind everything that’s on the website’. He showed a photo of Billy Anderson, arm in arm with some Foundation Students; another of an American Foundation Masters student who had been playing shinty in the afternoon and was later at the Rotary Ball in 2010 shaking hands with people without realising that his hand was broken! Colin suggested that members snuggle down on a cold winter’s night and browse the web pages, ‘it will cheer you up!’ The whole Rotary world, nationally as well as internationally, is available at a click of the mouse! Colin also paid tribute to those members who are, and have been, responsible for maintaining the website, keeping it updated. He reiterated that the public is free to access much of the website for general information, but personal details are available only to members able to log on with a password.
