Rotary Club is not Round Table

Rotary club not Round Table

I read with interest your article ‘Rotary recruitment drive as nights draw in’ (September 21), which then goes on to talk about Round Table’s recruitment drive.

I should point out that Rotary International and Round Table are two quite separate organisations and, whereas we have similar aims ‘to give something back to the community’, we do so in different ways.

Whereas the Seaford Rotary Clubs are always looking for new members, we do not normally run recruitment drives – we prefer to recruit new members by invitation.

A number of ‘Round Tablers’ go on to become Rotarians, and we know that Round Table is a first class organisation. We wish them well in their recruitment drive.
