A safari outing with a bit of a difference!

A number of Rotarians and their partners enjoyed a “safari” outing last Saturday – quite appropriate given the weather, but no zebras or lions were spotted during the evening’s entertainment!

Each summer, for a number of years, our club members along with their partners have enjoyed taking part in our “safari suppers”. This year was no different. Regular readers will know that these suppers involve three courses – nibbles, a main course, and finally dessert – all hosted by different members in their homes.

The entire group first gathered at President Rosemary Doyle’s home – the last of Rosemary’s “duties” before handover to President Elect Maxine Blades. Luckily, an evening of fine weather meant everyone was able to spread out into Rosemary’s garden. Other hosts for the evening were Graham & Jenny Bough and Sidney & Evelyne Denham.

During the evening PP Robert Yonge handed out the prize for Sailor Ted to PP Alastair Scott. (If you want to know more about Ted and how he helps us fundraise, click here.)

Meanwhile Jim Gascoyne, our outgoing Club Treasurer, won the 100 Club draw – another of our Club’s fundraisers, overseen by Graham Bough.

The “agenda” for the evening was as follows: drinks and canapés at Rosemary’s home, departure of the main course hosts followed 15 minutes later by their guests, and then departure of the dessert course hosts followed by their guests. Rather sweetly, the agenda then notes that 11.55hrs (precisely) was “bedtime”!

Special thanks go to the hosts and to Jim Gascoyne for organizing the successful and fun event.
