On Tuesday, 23rd May, 2017 Brighton Beach Rotary, which was Chartered 22 years ago by Brighton and Brighton North, had its farewell dinner. The evening was a great success with their achievements over that period highlighted by a number of speakers including DG Neville John, PDG John King, PDG Iven Mackay, and President Linn Maskell. 120 people from a number of clubs, the majority or Charter members, and most Past Presidents were in attendance.
President Linn Maskell presented Past District Governor John King with an additional Sapphire to his Paul Harris Recognition, in appreciation of his support over many years.
Lino Giudice an Opera singer entertained the audience and rounded off the evening with the appropriate “Con te partiro” (Time to Say Goodbye) followed by “Auld Lang Syne”.
The majority of Brighton Beach’s 16 members will transfer to either Brighton or Brighton North along with most of their current projects, so the good work of this club will continue.
