|The Salmon Man Ron Aratema|
Wine, salmon, coffee and chocolate all went together well at the successful evening. It was a particular attraction that the products on offer were of high quality from innovative businesses the Fine Wine Delivery Company, The Salmon Man and Jack’s Coffee. The evening also included fascinating presentations describing the start-up of these relatively new businesses, their journeys to date, and how striving for excellence in their products and service have contributed to their success.
This but one example of the innovation clubs are introducing to make their club meetings more enjoyable for members and partners and also as a way of interacting with the community. This particular meeting had some members from other clubs but also several people interested in finding more about Rotary and how Rotary might fit their desire to be active in their local area. Although St Johns Rotary is a breakfast club, their first meeting of each month is a dinner event and has proved extremely popular with member's partners.
