42 members and partners enjoyed a convivial fine dining evening at the Linen Lounge Restaurant at the Belfast Metropolitan College, Tuesday 04 November. The delicious 3 course meal so beautifully presented was prepared and served under supervision by teams of 8 and 4 students respectively and ranged from pigeon, butternut squash risotto and soup of the day to guinea fowl, lamb and cod all finished off with a delightful selection of desserts and complimentary petits fours with tea and coffee.
12 members and 2 guests (wives) attended the sessions of the District Governor Phillip Beggs' hugely successful District Conference at the Titanic Centre over Friday 26 - Saturday 27 September organised by the Comber Club. We were particularly pleased to also have Andrew Smith, Belfast Rotaract Club's President. (not shown in photo are PP Marnette, Secretary Alvin and PP David Boyd)
It was greatly enjoyed by over 60 members, family and friends and we were delighted to also welcome some Inner Wheel Club members including President Beryl Crawford. Although the weather did not encourage many onto the terrace it did not dampen the enjoyment of another of PP Brian Clements' fabulous BBQs - delicious lamb roasts and chicken accompanied by potatoes, roasted vegetables and salad topped off with mouth-watering BBQ'd bananas, dressed with marshmallows and liquor sauce. It was so delicious seconds were the order of the day!
President Ken concluded his year at his President's Day held 30 June at the Royal Belfast Golf Club. Always an exceptional event in the Club calendar, this year's proved to continue that tradition being greatly enjoyed by all. The Handover to President Ronnie McLean followed the dinner.

Before the handover 3 Paul Harris Fellowships were awarded.
