Three of our members went along to Wednesfield Rotary’s Presidential Handover Dinner to join in the evening thanking 2017-18 President Clive as he handed over to incoming 2018-19 President Helen. With good food and company it was a great evening, and a pleasure to see our friends as we welcomed in the new Rotary year.
We’ve a few connections with both the outgoing and incoming Presidents of Wednesfield Rotary, so it was good that three of our members were able to go along and represent the club at this event. Outgoing President Clive was one of our club’s mentors when we were forming, and is a long standing friend. Previously of the Walsall Club Clive moved a few years ago, and this was his first term as President of Wednesfield.
He handed over the reins of office to Helen, one of the members of the team that visited Romania on an international district project some years ago, whose numbers included our Treasurer, also a Helen.
The evening went well, helped along by some great food, with roast lamb and apple pie to round off. No complaints from any of our number on that score! We wish incoming President Helen well in the next 12 months, and hope our clubs’ paths will cross again during that time.
