Rotary Club of Shrewsbury

Live the Dream .... Southport 2016 Some 250 people from 25 Clubs attended this year’s District 1210 Conference led by Governor John Sayer. The format of the weekend was familiar and included a Friday night fancy dress Dance, Saturday Rotary and Charity speakers and DJ Dinner Dance in the evening with Sunday morning speakers - the spirits rose with Miranda Krestovnikoff on the wild side and we closed on a real high with Inspirational speaker Geoff Mackey who was at his irreverent sparkling best. I like meeting many old - even literally old friends from our District, hearing the R.I. German speaker reminding us of the wider dimension of Rotary and I even remembered the principals of modern gyration a.k.a. dancing! On a sunny, brisk, Saturday lunchtime we even walked out to sea along the pier - a mile and a half there and back.....so bracing!! Overall I feel the format of Conference needs a ‘kick in the pants’ (or am I becoming a grumpy old man??) but that Rotary, being a Fellowship organisation, each Club should try to support the occasion - obviously 30 Clubs did not agree with me!
