This year the annual Rotary Christmas Dinner was held at the East Herts Golf Club. However, the day before this area had had its snowfall of the winter and, although the roads were now clear, the outside temperature was already below freezing as we travelled to the event. The journey getting there was therefore rather problematic with patches of freezing fog. It was a relief to arrive unscathed at our dinner venue and over fifty Rotarians and guests managed to brave the weather and relax and chat in the rather chilly lounge area. Eventually we were called in to dinner where we were seated eight to a table and served with a delicious three-course meal with a menu that we had individually selected in advance. We had as special guests past president Steve Higginbotham and his wife Sue who have recently moved to the Leeds area. Steve was to have presented a substantial cheque from the Club to a representative of Hertfordshire Mind which was the nominated charity during his term of office. Sadly, the person representing the charity was unable to come at the last minute so we were unable to hand it over in person. Although the event was to have had some local singers entertain us after dinner, the weather had forced them to cancel. At the last minute both president Peter and vice-president Phillip had conjured up a quiz as an alternative entertainment. We all spent an enjoyable thirty minutes or so puzzling over a range of fiendish questions which fortunately, we could discuss and decide upon the answer as a table. By the time we all left the freezing fog had largely gone, thank goodness. To see the complete photo album of the Christmas dinner Click Here
