Last Thursday at the Rotary Club of Calne, Asst Governor Peter Wragg formally inducted the Club’s first five new Associate Members – Kate Tompkins, Ellie Farago, Gillian Farago and David and Rebecca Leaning. All five live in the local community and are involved in local businesses and voluntary work.
President David Dillamore (pictured centre) said ”in the past Rotary had strict rules on attendance, which were difficult for potential members to adhere”. Now potential members can join as Associates and fit their membership to suit their lifestyle. This initiative means that clubs like the Rotary Club of Calne can fulfil their challenges in the local community.
For people who would like to be involved in their local community and International Events, this is for them.
Readers notes: We have attached our Associate application form – which has been approved by District – please feel free to use it. We just could not recruit Full Members, but hope to have some 10 Associates in this Club year. After 12 months, we hope that some some of the Associates will become full members of the Club. We did get Associate Member lapel pins from AW Matthews to give them
