The club celebrated to approach of Christmas with a dinner on Monday 16th December at Mid Kent Gold Club. Members and their guests enjoyed a Christmas meal and heard from Rotarian Revd Tony Randall a Christmas message which included recollections of how Christmas was celebrated more modestly in his youth.
After the meal Rotarian Chris Keeble was presented with a Paul Harris fellowship by club president Andrew Moffat. The club makes these awards to those who give distinguished service to Rotary and their communities.
Chris had been an active club member since 2006 and much of that time had chaired the club’s international committee. He had personally promoted support for ShelterBox in local schools raising a large amount of money to send boxes to disaster areas.
