District Conference 2013, Dublin

DSCN2253President Ken led a party of 20 members and partners at the District Conference in Dublin 27-29 September at the historic Clontarf Castle Hotel. We were delighted Rotaractor Laura Garland joined us.

It was a great weekend of Conference business but most of all good fellowship.

A Floral Masterclass

Harrisons 003.2Several members and guests had a special visit to Harrisons Garden Centre, Greyabbey, Saturday 15 June. Following a delicious lunch in the restaurant with its panoramic views, albeit unfortunatedly slightly dulled by the inclement weather, they were treated to an excellent presentation by David Harrison of how to make up a beautiful hanging basket, imparting may tips along the way.

PP Gordon and Norma Milllington set him an unusual challenge of creating a flowering planter out of a strawberry tub – and they are now looking forward to months of colourful blooms.

The Club allocated £25,000 to this venture fitting out a trailer to FASA's specification and are delighted that it will be put to such a good use by FASA in their work against youth suicide, drug and solvent abuse.

The Lord Mayor and Dame Mary Peters, launching the project, heartily endorsed FASA's new venture and congratulated the Club. The full report can be read here
