At the Imperial Hotel in Central London on Tuesday 16th May 2017, a large number of Rotarians from London Rotary Clubs assembled to celebrate the presentation of the Charter to the new Rotary Club of Mayfair, UK.
DG Helen (pictured above) congratulated all the members of the District Team that had supported the embryo club over several years, and presented the Founder President of the Club, Christoph von Luttitz with the Charter Certificate. Each of the members of the new Club was presented with a “Founder Member” Rotary pin.
Membership Chairman PDG David Palmer played an important part in the proceedings and it was the work of his team that kept the provisional Rotarians on track. Also thanked was the President Elect of the new Club, Andrey Kirikhin, who had done so much to build a sound structure for continuity and growth in the Club.
As is often the way these days, several members of the Club were away on business on the evening – even as far away as Australia. But by coincidence the London Rotarians were joined by a Past District Governor John Campbell from Adelaide, South Australia who was visiting London and presented the new club with the Rotary Club of Adelaide Light’s club banner – one of the first to be presented to the new Club.
We all wish the Rotary Club of Mayfair, UK well in its Rotary career.
