Here is the programme for what will undoubtedly be the event of the year!
Dress code is formal and/or something with a Scottish twist (make of that what you choose).
There’s a lot to pack into the evening and there are 64 of us, so could I ask members to ask their guests to arrive in plenty time to enjoy the multi-media presentation of 30 years of Colwall Rotary, and consult the table plan, before moving into the dining room at 7.30?
Treasurer Paul will come round and collect outstanding guest ticket money and it would be helpful if one member on each table took responsibility for collecting it for their table.
