Club assists with refurbishing school in Cochin, India
From the inspiration of our previous ambassadorial scholar Reva Datar, the Rotary
Club of Edmonton with local and US clubs has provided funds for the refurbishment
and fitting out of a 300 year-old school in Cochin, India. Reva requested funds for
this project from Rotary and the club was very pleased to be able to support her
in this wonderful project.
Teddy Bear’s Picnic
A last minute request arrived from Nightingale Hospice Trust arrived asking if
would we would organise the egg and spoon, and sack, races for their Teddy Bears
Picnic, at Capel Manor. Sean, Chandu, and Pat duly arrived, and assisted by a Robin
Hood character, we proceeded to have a great day. Children were grouped by age, parents
urge to join in, and fathers made to run backwards, just to keep things even. Grandmothers
were impressed to note the eggs we use are real. Nightingale HospiceTrust put on
an excellent event, and we remain delighted to assist.
Enterprise Enfield Business Awards 2014
For the second year, our Club has been invited to organise the raffle at this event,
held by Enterprise Enfield Business Awards, at the Royal Chase Hotel.
Chandu, Tina, and Pat, assisted by our scholar Jesus, and (adopted) scholar Rachel,
were there to greet the guests, and wave raffle tickets. Also to take them round
the tables during the evening. For part of the evening we were assisted by Raksha
Patel, who was inducted into Southgate Rotary Club only a week previously.
Again this year we were raising funds for Kids Out, which went down very well with
when we were given the opportunity to say a little about thisfrom the stage, after
and before the raffle was drawn.
Alan was Club President 1977-78. Twenty years later found him back as President for
the second time, when he inducted his son, the current President John intothe club.
His outstanding service was recognised in1998 when he became a Paul Harris Fellow.Although Alan and his second wife Gladys moved to Norfolk, he still managed to get
along to meetings on a reasonablyregular basis.Eventually the long journey became
too much.The club decided to make him an honorary member in 2008 and he joined us
The last couple of years became very difficult and Alan finally succumbed to his
illness in August.He will be remembered with affection and our thoughts are with
Gladys, John, Claireand all the family at this sad time.
