Ken's memories on the year:

  • Theme for the year: Charity Fundraising should benefit the community where we live and work and where we can give our Rotary Club some meaning

 

  • CHARTER NIGHT April 24th, 1992. Seventh Charter Anniversary Dinner -held at the Regency Rooms, Ilkeston. This was the first Charter night to be held on a Friday night. (I had a number of guests from as far afield as Birmingham). Also, Friday night is a more suitable night for celebration. I invited the Rev. Brian Barrowdale to propose a toast to the Rotary Club instead of asking one of the members* also a well known raconteur Reg Keirle to entertain us for the last hour. At the last minute Brian Barrowdale developed influencer so I invited Brian Head-Rapson to amuse us with his Rugby days. A total of 186 Rotarians and guests had a very enjoyable night which finished after midnight.

 

  • LADIES EVENING Friday November 1st, 1991. Held at the Regency rooms with 144 Rotarians and guests with dancing till after midnight with the "Constellation"

 

  • FUND RAISING. The French evening raised over 900. Christmas float over 1000 and the Race Night over 800 (for Rotary's Vision to Fight Blindness). The Christmas float money helped to pay for a coach load of disadvantaged children to be taken to the Nottingham Pantomime and to entertain 140 old pensioners to an afternoon tea dance.

 

  • DISTRICT CONFERENCE. Nine Rotarians and wives attended.

  • VISITING SPEAKERS A graphologist and body language expert who could tell your preferences and degree of satisfaction from your handwriting.

* Nowadays the District Governor follows on the Response to the toast "Rotary International" with "The toast to Church Wilne Rotary club".
