Devizes Rotary celebrates 60 years

Many happy returns to Devizes Rotary, who are celebrating the 60th anniversary of it’s charter which was granted on August 31st, 1959.

To mark this special occasion, the following ex presidents joined current members in a lovely celebratory meal last week:

  • Ralph Flower MBE
  • George Day
  • John Bishop
  • Richard Bush
  • Bill Carter

  • Robert Akerman

 

A wonderful time was had by all, so here’s to the next 60 years!

 

60’s Themed Evening

There will also be a special 60’s themed evening held on 16th November to continue the celebrations. There will be food, music and drink, all reminiscent of the 1960’s, and 60’s dress will be optional!

Tickets are £30 a head, and include a welcome drink, a 3 course hot buffet with cheese and coffee, live music and other entertainment.

Fund Raising for the Imagine Rotary Holiday

Continuing the success we’ve had in providing the hot food for the Imagine Cruising team over the past 3 years, last Saturday we did the same again at a party hosted at Craig and Vicki Collingwood’s house. The theme of the meal this year was Tex Mex, and we were delighted that their two sons, George & particularly Edward, were there to lend a helping hand setting up the equipment and preparing the food. Thanks a lot fellas!

The money raised at the event will be put towards a week’s holiday next year for a deserving family at the Rotary bungalow in New Milton. In recognition of this, we’ll be naming it the Imagine Rotary Holiday. Thanks again to all the crew at Imagine Cruising for helping to make this happen.
