March 7th at 7:00PM at The Mount Pleasant Hotel, Great Malvern
For more than 110 years, Rotary members have been addressing challenges around the world.
Grassroots at the core, Rotary links 1.2 million members to form an organization of international scope. It started with the vision of one man — Paul Harris. The Chicago attorney formed the Rotary Club of Chicago on 23 February 1905, so professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas, form meaningful, lifelong friendships, and give back to their communities.
Rotary’s name came from the group’s early practice of rotating meetings among the offices of its members.
Rotary is made up of three parts: our clubs, Rotary International, and The Rotary Foundation. Together, we work to make lasting change in our communities and around the world.
Impact starts with our members — people like you who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change — across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.
At club meetings in communities across the globe, our people of action come together to strengthen their connections to friends and neighbors and their commitment to improving lives.
Who can join?
We’re looking for people who wish to help local regional and international communities/charities when help is needed and at times of crisis.
Why Colwall Rotary Club?
Our club has undergone much self-driven change in the last few years as we transform ourselves from the (always false) image of “men in grey suits eating together”, to a club fit for people in their 30s, 40s and 50s in the Malvern District, who wish to give something back to their community and the world, whilst experiencing friendship and getting to know and understand people from other cultures.
To meet this challenge, we are seeking to invite into membership of Rotary, women (and men) who feel this opportunity will add to their lives.
The evening agenda
This meeting is intended to help you understand more about Rotary International today and the role women are playing in it. To lead the evening your hosts are;
From Colwall Rotary Club
Simon Thompson (President 2017-18 ) and
Chris Mill (President 2018-19)
and from Rotary District 1100, Hilary al Rasheed (Assistant Governor)
The format is relaxed, and the plan is to assemble at 7:30 and each of us will outline some aspect of Rotary and answer questions about what it means to be a Rotary Member, and why we think Colwall Rotary Club could be the right choice for you, if you did wish to join Rotary.
Please can you RSVP to [email protected]
if you plan to attend, so we do not wait for people who are not actually coming along.
