Ian McTurk made a presentation yesterday, January 10th 2018, to the Ready 2 Network group.
Subject: Opportunity to work in the community.
Ian went through the numerous community activities that a modern Rotary club get involved in covering a number of Youth Projects, Santa’s Sleigh and Walk 4 your Charity. He pointed out that to finance these projects costs at least £5000 p.a. ; hence the need for the fundraising we do.
There are many reasons that people want to “put something back into the community” and Ian quoted Mohandas Gandhi for a particularly good reason
“the best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others”
It was an excellent presentation and the group are seriously considering become corporate members this year.
The presentation was also attended by Sandy Morrison and Bill Honeywell from Clitheroe Rotary club who both spoke briefly about the highly positive role of Rotary in the world.
It was an inspirational meeting all round.
