Activity

Our club meets on Mondays, at 18.30 at Palace Hotel.

At most meetings, we will have an interesting talk given by a distinguished speaker, except in the instance of business meetings that we have a few times a year. Please check the schedule for future events below and come back soon for amendments that tend to appear weekly.

 

All Rotarians are naturally welcome to all our club meetings. As the traditional meal is part of our club meetings, previous notification to the club secretary about your visit (and dietary requirements, if any) is recommended for practical purposes. However, this is in no way a requirement, just feel free to show up at the beginning of the next meeting and be very welcome. The hotel will do the best to serve your selection from the restaurant menu.
