07/06/2021 - Message from our President Elect, William Stokes


Dear fellow Rotarian,
I am writing to you in a mood of great optimism ,as we get ever closer to the Presidents handover on the 30th June 2021 ,in what will effectively be the start of a new Ascot Club Rotary Year.
This has been an extremely difficult year for our President Jo Clare ,who has had to cope with the disruption and fall out from the continuous and prolonged coronavirus pandemic and all the problems that this incurred in the administration of our Clubs activities, throughout the year . Jo, ::WE SEND YOU OUR SINCERE THANKS FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK “.

As we move forward together , I cannot over emphasise the importance of a good “Team Spirit “ with everyone playing their part in all social and charitable activities . I well realise that we all have other commitments in our busy lives , however, the Rotary Pledge must be our guiding light and with good planning, I would like to feel that we can look forward to interesting and exciting times as all the Council members and committee chairs come together ,to work ,on a constructive and positive programme to raise funds for our many charities.

Changes to my email of the 19th November 2020
