Today’s Program – Business Meeting

Rotary Last Week, September 8th

It was a great meeting, with the English GSE team, who’s “callings” ranged from: Andrew Guest, Horticlturist; (Coventry Rotary); Julia Pearson, Police Inspector (Birmingham Coventry); Ransit Gill Blythe, Architect; Adam Smith, Reporter; John Pibworth, Sports (cricket), history teacher & teacher.  It was a most inspiring meeting, and greeting this most talented group, listening to their individual programs and sharing stories with them was priceless. Hopefully sometime, we may meet them again. (Next time I’m in London I’ll look them up.) After the meeting they were shown some of the sights and attractions that make this area great!
