First Impressions Matter!

Swanage Rotary has been able to attract a significant number of new members to the club in the current Rotary year, so we thought we’d ask one of them, Chris LeFevre, what attracted him to the club.

“I joined Rotary in 2008 as a member of the Abingdon Vesper Club in Oxfordshire. One of the great advantages of being a Rotarian is being able to visit Rotary clubs around the world. Wherever you happen to be you can go along to the meeting of the local club and you find an instant network of new friends and contacts. It is also an excellent way of getting to know a particular town or area. I took advantage of this opportunity when visiting Swanage and when we decided to move to Purbeck I had no hesitation in requesting a transfer of my membership to the Rotary Club of Swanage and Purbeck. The process is very straightforward and I was made most welcome from the very start.

My former Club prided itself on punching above its weight with a number of major projects. Swanage and Purbeck seems even more active with an incredible number of events running through the year making Rotary a real part of everyday life in Swanage. I have also been impressed by the innovative Business Partners programme run by the Club and the strong commitment to the welfare of all members. I’m looking forward to getting actively involved and, I hope, making a positive contribution to this awesome Club!”

It’s great to hear that we seem to be doing the right things in attracting membership to Swanage Rotary and we look forward to Chris and our other new members playing an active part in the activities and events that the club runs.

Thanks Chris!
