Every Thanet Rotary Club was represented when Ramsgate Club installed Henry Golding as its President for the new Rotary Year, taking over from Pat Hersant.
The out-going president said it has been a very successful year for the club. Its Christmas collections had raised over £4,000 for the charity funds and hundreds of toys distributed through Social Services.
Mr Golding said he had joined the club six years ago and was very proud to become president. He planned to repeat the successful events of the past year, including an old folks tea and ride in the local countryside, the quiz held in conjunction with the Inner Wheel Club as well as the golf and putting competitions.
The club would present the third £1,000 donation to You Can, the youth cancer organisation.
He said the club would, for a trial period, meet on the first, third and fifth Tuesday of each month, instead of weekly meetings. It was hoped this would help in the club’s efforts to attract new members
The meeting also witnessed the induction of Julie Miller as President Elect, to take office for 1920/21
