The September Best club Project award of £50 goes to Cowbridge for their Production of a Wartime memories book. President Steve Pearce said "VE day and VJ day resulted in a lot of conversations about the war and Rotarians experiences. These conversations triggered a decision to capture the experiences of Rotarians and their relatives in an illustrated booklet called 'Wartime Memories of Cowbridge Rotarians and their families'. Fifteen Rotarians or members of their family made contributions to the book. The book has been made available to local schools, dementia and elderly persons groups as well as the local History Society and Town archive and has been well received."
DG Alison has chosen as her best Club project for August the work done by Bridgend Rotary Club with the Rotary Club of Beruit Cosmopolitan who have distributed food and medical supplies.
Congratulations to Bridgend Rotary who will receive the £50 for their charity account.
