INTERNATIONAL TOASTS

As a reminder that we are part of an international organization, we toast a Rotary Club located in another country. We choose the Club based on a historical event that occurred there on the date of our meeting. Sometimes the selection could be significant, and sometimes it could be lighter.


Our first toast was to the Rotary Club of Plymouth, England. Why? Because on Sept. 6, 1620, the Mayflower sailed from Plymouth, England. After the meeting, an email of explanation and a Certificate commemorating the toast were sent to the president of that Club.

 

Shown below are the email and a photo of the Certificate.

 

In order to remind our members that Rotary is an international organization, the Port St. Lucie Rotary Club has a new practice at its Tuesday afternoon luncheon meetings of toasting a Rotary Club in another country. We try to choose a location where something noteworthy occurred in history on the date of our meeting. In this connection, we discovered that the Mayflower set sail (after 2 previous attempts) from Plymouth, England on September 6, 1620.

 

Accordingly, on September 6, 2016, we raised our glasses to wish your Club success in your Rotary endeavors. If any of your members are ever in the United States and are near Port St. Lucie, Florida, they have a standing invitation to visit our Club.
