Joint-president David Dolman presided at the monthly business meeting of the Rotary Club of Chesterfield held at the Olde House, Newbold, on Friday 9 October 2015. He welcomed regular guest Frank Clifford, past-president of the Rotary Club of Bolsover.
Details of the club’s 93rd Charter Anniversary Luncheon, which is to be held at Ringwood Hall Hotel on Sunday 1 November 2015, were circulated.
Past-president Bryan White gave members a verbal report on the conference and reported that as usual it was a friendly affair and socially had been another success. He gave a flavour of the main messages from some of the key speakers. This had included District Inner Wheel Chairman, Diana Sardesai, who suggested that Rotary and Inner Wheel clubs should consider working together more. The 45th Rotary District Conference will be held at The Spa, Scarborough, on 30 Sept- 2 Oct 2016.
Past-president Geoff Mitchell reported that the community service committee was looking to appoint a new main organiser for future Classic Car & Bike Shows. A smooth handover was being planned to take place during 2016 from inspirational past-president Stuart Bradley who was now standing down from the main role after many years of service.
The closing toast was proposed by joint-president David Dolman.
