A highly successful Charity Golf Day was held at the Belvoir Park Golf Club Tuesday 22 May. A good day was enjoyed by all in glorious sunshine on a beautifully manicured course - though some seem to prefer the more natural areas! In the sun drenched Clubhouse golf and ballot prizes were presented by President Rosemary.
President Rosemary welcomed all especially Guest Speaker Dame Esther Rantzen, The Silver Line CEO Sophie Andrews OBE and District Governor Roland Bailie to the special Fundraising Lunch which was attended by over 140.
In a highly entertaining and frequently anecdotal address Dame Esther detailed how The Silver Line began, its importance and how it operates.
The Club enjoyed another evening at the Club Christmas Dinner Meeting held for the first time at Malone Golf Club. 73 Club members and guests had a splendid evening of food, entertainment and fellowship.
20 members and partners had a most enjoyable evening Thursday 23 November at the latest Grub Club event in The Scullery, Belfast Metropolitan College. We were particularly delighted to be able to welcome visiting Rotarian Pierre-Yves Samson, from the Rotary Club of Paris Quai d'Orsay (2nd left). Plenty of fellowship and an excellent meal was enjoyed by all. Thanks again to Chef Lecturer Jacqui Quinn (far right) and the BTEC Hospitality Students.
29 people were involved with the ShelterBox Appeal outside Belfast City Hall 06 November either erecting or dismantling the tent, or collecting, or all three, at least once during the day which raised over £700. President Rosemary thanks all for the sterling effort and notes that it is wonderful to see so many Rotarians involved.
The day raised Rotary's profile in the city and comments of passers-by were interested, inquisitive and dismissive but the Rotary Club of Belfast was shown to be what it is, a caring and enthusiastic international organisation.
