Rotary club is seeking new members

Bray Rotary Club is looking for new members and the club will hold an information meeting on Tuesday, November 5.

The meeting will start at 6.15 p.m. and run for one hour.

There will be speakers talking briefly about Rotary's water projects in Africa, the polio education campaign, a joint venture with Sight Savers, and many local Bray campaigns such as the giving tree, bikes for Africa, Shelter Box and youth leadership projects.

All are welcome, but asked to call Una on 086 8091117, so that catering is adequately provided for.

Organisers say that club membership involves new friendships, helping others less fortunate, and being part of a global network of 1.2 million neighbours, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers.

William Cross has officially taken up the reins as District Governor for Rotary Ireland and pledged to increase membership in Ireland from 2,000 to 2,500 by 2022 - an ambitious 25 per cent.

Speaking at the annual District Conference for Rotary, attended by over 300 Rotarians from across Ireland, he also pledged to increase the number of clubs from 72 to 95 across-Ireland. With hopes to include a younger demographic, raise the profile of the 114-year-old organisation, and support those in need both globally and locally through an ethos of 'Service above Self'.
