Posted by: Miles Lemon - Thu, 02/11/2017 - 10:13am

Faversham Rotary Club is 70 years old this year and to mark the anniversary there was a dinner at the Golf Club for 70 guests, including District Governor Carol Vizzard, club Presidents from Sittingbourne Milton and Herne Bay Rotary Clubs, together with past and present Rotarians and their partners. Christine Manser, President of Faversham Inner Wheel Club, also attended, as did many other friends.
A delicious three course meal was followed by a talk from club members. John Griffin had delved into the club archive to find out what was going on in the club in its early months and Michael Hoey talked about the popular films and music of the time.
Club President Ruth Carlisle spoke about some of the club's past, present and future activities - supporting individuals and groups, both locally and abroad. She concluded by saying that when Rotarians act together they can and do make a difference.
