Celebrations had to be delayed last year for obvious reasons so the opportunity was also used to welcome the dawn of a new century.
Guests on Saturday night included The Mayor and Mayoress Harrogate Coun and Mrs Trevor Chapman , the Past President of Rotary GB&I Tom Griffin, the Rotary District Governor Stephen Ellis.
One very special guest speaker was Peter Wright, The Yorkshire Vet, who gave members a fascinating insight into his life and work in the Dales and the making of such a popular programme.
The fact that he had been taught at school in Thirsk by Ann Percival, our President-Elect, added to the occasion.
The event was also an opportunity to present a Paul Harris Fellowship to last year’s club president Alistair Ratcliffe with a second one due to be presented to Past President Eric Mitchell who unfortunately was not able to attend on the night.
A very special evening was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
