In February as the lockdown exit arrangements were announced, Rotarians of Hagley wondered how long it would be before our weekly Monday evening meetings could reconvene. It looks like it will be the end of July 2021. in the meantime we will continue with our Zoom meetings
From the savings Rotarians had been accumulating from the absence from the Lyttelton Arms contributions to the Black Country foodbanks have been well received and it is a privilege during these times to be able and willing to contribute to these much needed causes.
The month of February is when Rotarians are charged to consider Peace and Conflict Prevention/Resolution. Millions of people all over the world are currently displaced by armed conflict or persecution. 90% of casualties in armed conflicts are civilians, half of whom are children. Through service projects and Rotary programs, the Rotary family is committed to pursuing projects that address the structural causes of conflict, including poverty, inequality, ethnic tension, lack of access to education, and unequal distribution of resources.
Wherever possible and when the opportunity presents itself, the Rotarians of Hagley promote peace and support peace initiative as part of ourcommitment to better times ahead that is what makes our weekly Zooms such happy occasions. So if readers would like to have fun with a purpose, consider joining our club who will be meeting at 7.00pm for 7.30pm on Monday evenings by visiting our website (click our logo)
