70 years of
Tenterden Rotary Club
At a meeting attended by 54 members and guests the Rotary
Club of Tenterden celebrated 70 years of service to the community. The club was
chartered in 1947 and a meeting was held on Tuesday 7th December in
Tenterden town hall at the same venue and time as that original meeting.
President Chris Milne outlined some of the history of the club and said that
since its inception it has raised about three quarters of a million pounds for
charities in addition to organising events and sponsoring youth activities.
One founder member of the club, Robert Cruttenden, a
former Mayor of Tenterden is no longer alive but his portrait in the corner of
the room seemed to be smiling in approval.
