Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Crewkerne promoted their youth projects with local schools, at their recent coffee morning/membership recruitment session at Costas in Falkland Square. The club’s President Peter Lawrence is keen to encourage more involvement with teachers and students at schools in Crewkerne and in the surrounding area.
In addition to supporting local and national Rotary competitions such as the Technology Tournament, Young Chef, Young Photographer, Young Musician and Youth Speaks, which are all annual events run for the youth of the town through strong links with Wadham School, the club is keen to increase its membership. A spokesperson for the Rotary Club of Crewkerne said: “Perhaps the best reason for becoming a Rotarian is the opportunity to provide community service in both local and international service. The chance to do something worthwhile for someone else is richly rewarding and provides a self-fulfillment that returns as satisfaction to ones own life.”
The Rotary Club of Crewkerne celebrated its Diamond Jubilee in 2013 and is now in its 64th year, since the charter was granted in 1953. Club members are inviting others to join them and find out more about the club’s youth projects, fund-raising initiatives in support of local charities and good causes and their involvement with global projects within the International organisation of Rotary.
