The Power of the Internet

rotaryWe use of the web to tell the world what we are doing and the world watches us as this post shows.

We have a Rotarian from Indianapolis who keeps in contact with us and comes to see us when he is in the UK. This is what Rotary is all about!

We recently had our P4P concerts (purple for polio) in St Marys’ Church in Banbury and raised £2000-00 towards our target for the year from this club. We hope to raise upward of £7,000-00 for this cause before the year end for the polio eradication programme.

To get back to our friend Don Henley, he not only watches our website but also becomes involved in some of our activities so THANK YOU DON for your input and as a visit from you is now on the cards for this year we will buy you lunch and a good pint of bitter, together with bit of banter and a lot of fellowship.

Greetings from our club to all your members in Indianapolis East Rotary Club, but don’t invite our lot for a free meal as they will eat the restaurant out of food!

See you in June/July.

Mary Wins District Finals

Mary wins Rotary District 1090 Young musician Finals.

Mary Eckert, runner-up in the Banbury Young Musician senior singing section went one better in the District Finals last Saturday, winning the competition and securing a place in the forthcoming regional finals to be held at the end of March.
The Tudor Hall student impressed the judges with her virtuosity by singing “Vedrai Carino” by Mozart, “Somewhere” from Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story (the piece she sang at one of this month’s Purple4Polio Concerts at St Mary’s Church Banbury) and “Per La Gloria D’Adorarvi” by Giovanni Bononcini.
