This is always a special evening, and this was no exception with Brigantes celebrating 39 years of Rotary Membership. Some 60 rotary members, wives and friends were present, which included our District Governor Nigel Arthurs, six presidents from neighbouring clubs - Brigantes, President Ruth Townrow opened our evening, followed by David Hoskins providing ‘Grace’ with three musical verses written, echoed the occasion.
Our Charter was read out followed by several toasts! President Ruth left no one present with any doubts of what we had achieved the past year. There were compliments by Nigel Arthurs and Ruth about our major commitment, which seemed never ending. Following an excellent dinner, we were entertained by Howard Brent (Singer) who inferred he had looked at our age group and perhaps songs from the 50s/60s were quite appropriate!! Howard’s enthusiasm created a singalong and on one short occasion dancing by President Ruth and Peter Wearmouth. All thanks go out to everyone who made this a special night, particularly our ladies.
