The toast for Rotary International & Rotary International
in Great Britain
and Ireland was proposed by President Elect Mike.At the beginning
of his speech he referred to his lounge suit and not a dinner jacket,and was due to the fact that he had had a wisdom
extracted earlier in the day.Mike talk about
the work that Rotary was doing throughout
the world to eradicate polio and how we respond to disasters with Shelter boxes
thereby helping people in times of need.
The response was
given District Governor Margaret Taylor (Skegness Club).Margaret congratulated
the club for serving the community for 85 years and presented an award to mark
this to President Gordon.She had carried out some research, on the internet, for the name
Gordon.This was amongst other things, a masculine name,a name for bicycles , gin, a Scottish clan and
there was the Gordon riots.Whereas

club abroad as he done on many occasions .It was a light hearted speech
