D1050 Rotarians celebrate end of an era

As the separate identity of our district draws to a close, a celebration event has been held at Cranage Hall near Holmes Chapel.
Although attended by only 54 members and partners, those present, who included our current District Governor Alastair and six past DGs, enjoyed a magical evening of fellowship over a 3 course meal followed by entertainment, but with a minimum of formality and speeches.
PDG Chris Boyes read his specially composed monologue based on each of the annual themes linking them to our own 28 DGs for their respective years. Well done Chris! Banners of each of the themes adorned the room thanks to PDG Keith Paver.
Magician Pete Turner provided the magical element, moving among the tables during the meal for some close up magic, followed by a lecture comprising half a dozen demonstrations. Several brave volunteers assisted Pete in showing how our logical thinking processes can be predicted/manipulated, mostly much to our own surprise.
Several couples stayed at Cranage overnight, enabling the celebration to carry on into the early hours of the following morning.
On 1 July, 7 clubs from D1050 will transfer to D1180, 1 club to D1220 and the remainder will create a new D1285, together with the current clubs of D1280. All are wished well for the future.
