Craig Jones came up with the original idea after approaching David Seymour, Member for Epsom, ACT Party, at a fair one year.

Craig asked David if as ACT Party Leader he would consider delivering his annual State of the Nation speech at a Rotary Charity Dinner event – as a Guest Speaker. David agreed and the rest is history.

This year’s event took place on 23rd Feb at the Sorrento in The Park, One Tree Hill. There were 109 guests and was a great start and with more publicity has potential to grow.

A great night was had by all and was topped off with a successful Auction then followed by an informative Q&A session.

Craig wanted to extend his thanks to Barry “a most able MC for the night”, Gary for handling the admin and “putting up with countless calls from me”. Bruce on accounts, Tony for coming up with our graphics, Paul for erecting the banners and Club Members Craig badgered into coming along with mates to fill tables.

David has committed to the next two years and the club is already looking forward to a bigger and brighter occasion next year.
