Llandudno Rotary Charter Night

More news from our ever active Llandudno Rotarians, who appear to have had a good evening celebrating their 92nd Birthday.  We are sure that you will join with us in congratulating Brenda Fogg for her tireless work with Hope Restored https://hoperestored.co.uk/


It was also great to read that Rotarian Chris Drew was awarded a Paul Harris Fellowship.  Paul Harris Fellowship Award is a very highly thought of award designed to recognise either a Rotarian or non-Rotarian who, in its opinion, is worthy of this award.  Well done Chris – your hard work on keeping us up to date with the events and work of Llandudno Rotary is much appreciated


Here is what Llandudno Rotary have said about their Charter Night.


“Round up the usual suspects”


The famous 1942 quote from Casablanca could well have applied to Llandudno Rotary recently


Their 92nd Birthday Bash (sometimes referred to in more gentile circles as a Charter Night) at Conwy Golf Club on Friday 29th March certainly proved to be a magnet for all “the usual suspects” who would never, ever miss an excuse to  party


That said, about 20 of the total of 49 guests were attending for the first time, but no doubt not for the last. Regulars and ‘newbies’ alike enjoyed all of the highlights of the evening, namely


  • 3 course dinner


  • Presentation of a Community Service Award to Brenda Fogg for her work with Hope Restored charity for the homeless


  • Presentation of a Paul Harris Fellowship to Rotarian Chris Drew for services to Rotary


  • A toast for the work of the Club from Cllr. David Hawkins, Mayor of Llandudno


  • Entertainment from the 50-strong  “Sing with us” Tenovus choir


Not a bad night out for a 92-year old! Our thanks to all who made it possible, especially to Rotarian Alan Guinn who organised the whole event with his usual seemingly effortless aplomb (how does he do that?)
