Rotary Club Zooming into History

Celebrating its Centenary Year in 2021

The Rotary Club of The City of Wolverhampton zoomed into the history books on Tuesday July7th when two new lady members were welcomed into the club via Zoom. Forty seven members and guests were present on-screen as the welcome to the two ladies was accompanied by the introduction of the new President for 1920/21 former City Treasurer Brian Bailey.

Katie Guest, development manager at the Royal Air Force Museum, Cosford and Sally Woods, a community fundraiser at Compton Care are the first duo in the country, and probably the world, to have received a virtual welcome into Rotary International. Katie and Sally bring the total of women in the City Club to eight. A remarkable achievement when only twelve months ago there were no lady members.

The prestigious City Club will be celebrating its centenary in 2021with high profile events planned to celebrate the work that Rotary has undertaken, wherever it has been needed.. Sterling work was undertaken during World War 2, help has always been forthcoming at times of national and international disaster and today the City Club continues to be at the forefront of voluntary community service helped by funding from its massive Dragon Boats and Best Foot Forward events and the familiar Tree of Remembrance in The Wulfrun Centre at Christmas.

The Rotary Club of The City of Wolverhampton has recently spearheaded ‘Let‘s Talk Rotary and You‘. A campaign aimed at encouraging membership from men and women of all ages, where they can enjoy the true friendship engendered by giving something back to their community. The club Membership and Development lead is Jeremy Hobbs (07929 323606) and he would be delighted to hear from anyone who would like more information about becoming  a part of this ambitious club.
