We meet most weeks for lunch or an evening meal often with a guest speaker, sometimes to discuss aspects of club business and always to socialise.
The Club's Weekly Meeting is where most Rotarians get together for the Fellowship which is a keystone of Rotary.
Some meetings are purely for fellowship (usually at lunchtime), some have a guest speaker (usually in the evening) and a very few are for the business of the Club
Typically a meeting at lunch time lasts for an hour and an evening one is a little more.
Although we have e-mail, web and social media presence, the face to face meetings contribute to the Club's team spirit (and not everyone reads e-mails!)
There is no absolute rule for attendance but every member is expected to make maximum effort to attend as many meetings as possible. The Rotary motto of Service Above Self applies here.
Our meetings follow this pattern
First Thursday each month - an evening meeting (5:45 for 6:15) usually with a speaker. Finished by 20:00
Second Thursday - lunchtime meeting - 12:30 for 13:00 finishing promptly at 14:00
Third Thursday - evening meeting
Fourth Thursday - lunchtime
Fifth Thursday - an informal meeting (not at Garvock House)
