Meeting 29th September 2014

On Monday 29th September the Church Wilne Rotary Club members welcomed Steve Street into the Club as a new member. Michael Massie in his introduction said that Steve was very much an entrepreneur and felt he had lots of ideas to benefit the membership of the club.

Vice President Tony Beenham than went through the formal induction and welcome, which included some of the ideals of Rotary and opportunities to serve within the Community.

Steve, who lives in Dale Abbey, thanked the members for the opportunity to become a Rotarian. His previous business experiences included being a chef, working in the steel industry, shop fitting and now in the decorating business.

Then followed a talk by club member Geoff Brown who had earlier set the members a challenge to guess what the 24 curious objects were with many being in use over 100 years ago. These included a dairy maid yoke, butter pat, milking claw, butter churn and a thatcher's needle. The winner of the competition was John Astell who received a mystery prize from Geoff.

Michael Massie gave the Club's vote of thanks and said that many of the items were still in use today!
