Hi people meet Harry, Rotakids Pres. for D 1120’s second Rotakids Club…. and he’s got a lot to say!

ashford - President Ian with RKP Harry

This District’s second Rotakids Club is in St. Mary’s C of E Primary School, Ashford.   By the way, that’s Harry in the picture in the blue sweater.  He approached RC Ashford with the proposal to start a new ‘after-school’ group in the name of Rotary, and so they did!

The Rotarian on the right is RC Ashford club President Ian Alexander, and on the 20th. October at a ‘special’ school assembly 12 members were inducted to form the new club, in his, and AG Don Soppit’s presence, and with a congratulatory letter from DG Martin.  I assume the lady on the right is the Headmistress, but, sadly, I` don’t have her name.

All the children made the Rotakids pledge which is:

“As a Rotakid I endeavour  to be fair to all,                                                                     to serve my  community,    and to show respect for others.”

The club has a mentor – RC Ashford’s Martin Carter, who is highly impressed with their enthusiasm.  The club’s agenda will run just like a normal Rotary club.  He says they want to – “Help children feel better, plus Help people, and have fun!”

Harry added -” I feel great being President of Rotakids, I like to help poor people feel better and have fun.  Maybe one day we will be on TV!”  Now there’s someone who knows where he is going, Harry, I feel sure you will.  The rest of us – Watch out, Harry and his club of 12 are in vertical take-off mode, and they are on their way!
