On a glorious Good Friday morning our club First Vice President, Sean Egan, took part with his sons in the 'Easter 10 2019' run, organised by Maidenhead Athletic Club.
The race started at 09.30 am from Maidenhead Office Park in Westacott Way, and was the 66th annual 'Easter 10' run to be organised by the athletics club.
Hope you did well Sean!
The club held a social evening on Tuesday 2nd April at Anong Thai, the Thai restaurant in Cookham High Street. 28 people managed to squeeze in to the restaurant to enjoy a very convivial evening and a delicious Thai meal.
Thanks to Ian Thomas for organising this annual event.
The annual Rotary District 1090 Conference was held this year in Portsmouth from Friday 8th to Sunday 10th March. Above are a few photos of some of the conference sessions, and the club's delegates relaxing at Portsmouth Guildhall after the opening session.
Caitlin Dermody, one of the Rotary Scholars who spoke so eloquently at the club's January evening meeting, was also attending the conference along with the other Rotary Scholars.
The annual club Wine Quiz was held at Maidenhead Rugby Club on Friday 22nd February. It was a very convivial evening, with 8 wines to taste from around the world, while trying to guess the answers to the quiz. Not surprisingly, the questions seemed to get more and more difficult as the wine tasting progressed...
A 'Heads and Tails' competition was held and the lucky winner was Neerja Maudgil.
Many thanks to the Fund Raising Committee for organising such an enjoyable and sociable event, which raised over £750 for the club's charity funds. Thanks also go to Rosario and Gordon from the Italian Continental Stores who provided the wines and delicious platters of anti pasta, and organised the quiz.

Message from Anne Matkin (Club President):
I went to Sir Nicholas Winton's garden today and took some photos of the crocus planted for the Rotary Purple for Polio campaign. They are doing well in this lovely spring-like weather.
