Whilst the basis of Rotary is “Service above Self” that certainly doesn’t mean members don’t have a lot of fun through talks, visits, exchanges and other fellowship activities.
Inevitably 2020 / 21 was severely affected by the Covid-19 situation but most members kept in regular touch either by phone, through zoom meetings or as a result of those activities we’ were able to run despite (or in some cases because of) the pandemic.
After losing some members the club has now ‘bounced back’ and is now happily growing in size.That’s because fun is factored in! Some events are of themselves joyous and uplifting – like the children’s singing concerts. Helping communities can also provide it’s own ‘dopamine reward’ – but we leave nothing to chance: our social events and weekly meetings – may retain a veneer of formality – but are predominantly FUN
