President 1997 - 98

               1997/8 was an interesting and rewarding year. The club continued with its normal calendar of lunchtime meetings and enjoyed a number of traditional social events, particularly the Christmas Ladiesí dinner, Presidentís Ladies night, Charter night and the Joint Council dinner.

 

One objective for the year was to develop closer links with the other local clubs so it particularly satisfying to see so much support for the first joint project with the Great Yarmouth and Gorleston clubs, the Christmas Carol Concert at Christchurch.

 

                On a wider front we were delighted to welcome a number of guests during the year including District Governor Ken Charles, Tony Wright MP, as well as Rotarians from other clubs as far afield as Australia. In October we welcomed a Group Study Exchange Scheme party from Peru.

 

                 Our charity fundraising continued with a number of established events, particularly International Serviceís Race Night in July, Community Serviceís Greyhound Night in November and Foundationís Quiz Night in March, all of which were well supported.

 

                 Charity projects included a presentation to the Bure Clinic at the James Paget Hospital, and we undertook, for the first time, a matching grant project, working with the Rotary Club of Delhi South to provide their district with a mobile library.
