Rotary Club of Malling
Humanity in Motion
Well August has been and we are now into September. Our first meeting of the month was supposed to be a talk on the new pension laws. Unfortunately the speaker had a bad fall and was unable to attend so we had a chat amongst ourselves. I glad to report that the speaker is now back to work and has offered to come to talk to us at a later date.
The following Saturday we had our Race night at Ryash Village Hall. Although the numbers were not great, those who came had a good time and we raised over six hundred and fifty pounds for our local charity pot. May I thank Tony and Doreen particularly for their contribution to the evening, as without them we would have struggled.
The next Club social event was the visit to Church Farm Offham to see the Lettuce farm. The whether for this was not great, as the rains had been falling heavily the previous few days so the ground was very wet. This did not stop Rotarians of Malling Rotary Club who enjoyed a very interesting guided tour of both the machinery sheds and the crop fields. The latter we toured in workers mini buses to avoid the trudge though the mud. We had then returned for a buffet meal at Spadeworks.
Our task group meeting on the 18th was attended by Mick Spingett our ADG for this year where we discussed Club Committees and agreed who would lead which committees etc.
Thanks to Larry's efforts, we have recently been given the front window display area at West Malling Library to promote the club. This is for a six week period and Tony and I have pieced together an initial display showing what Rotary with Malling Rotary is about and we would like to encourage any ideas members have to endorse this campaign. I would like to think we can interest local people with this display and have suggested we have an open evening in October on a club night to promote new membership.
Looking forward we have the Clay Shoot organised by Mike on 13th September 2015.

Finally can I remind all that the Murder Mystery night is rapidly approaching
(3rd October 2015) and would ask you all to spread the word to your friends and acquaintances so we have a good turn out.
