Working together to help the wider community

rotary logoFrom four friends meeting around a table in Chicago in 1905 to discuss how they could work together to help the wider community, Rotary International has now grown to encompass 34,282 clubs with more than 1.2 million members across 200 countries.

The organisation crossed the Atlantic in 1914 and 10 years later the Rotary Club of Newark held its first meeting in the Town Hall, with 22 founder members charged an entry fee of one guinea.

Paula Hurst, a committee member of the Newark club, will be joining June, Tina and Sue this Saturday to talk about its work and the current campaign to encourage more local women to become Rotarians. Yes, the Girls Around Town thought it was strictly men only too – but since women were admitted in the 1980s, they now make up 15 per cent of membership internationally.

With the usual helping of great music and some interesting snippets from the news thrown in for good measure,there’ll be plenty of reasons to tune in to 107.8FM or listen online from 10am to 1pm on Saturday…
