Club Services and Visitors

Club Services, the heart of the club…

Every Rotary club depends on an efficient and well run functions and services section to organise and run weekly meetings, occasional  outside functions, trips and visits, all catering and co-ordination of the speaker programme. Harriet Puser is in charge with a committee and liaises on an almost daily basis with Club President, Alison Rice and acting Club President Joelle Searle whilst Keith is away in the UK.

Rotary Club of Hout Bay
has always celebrated its reputation for its warmth and friendly atmosphere.   Over the years, our club services avenue of service has built up a fine reputation for hospitality.

Rotarian visitors from other Rotary clubs both international and domestic can use the Rotary  “Where Clubs Meet” handbook for contact details to notify Harriet beforehand of their attendance.  A pleasant simple, one course meal is available currently at a reasonable cost which we ask visiting Rotarians to pay upon their arrival.

Club Services reminds all existing members to contact us c/o Carolyn Herrick our attendance officer, if they are unable to attend meetings.  At the board’s discretion they may be charged for the meal they missed for having been “silent”. Failure to advise Harriet of your non-arrival will cause the club to reach into its own funds to cover your unadvised absence. It is at the discretion of the Committee whether they ask you to reimburse the club with the funds spent on the provision of a meal for you.

Refreshments are available in the Atlantic Boat Club (ABC Club) main lounge, a floor below the club meeting room where Rotarians foregather for their weekly meetings, 6.30pm for a 7.00pm start, Tuesdays.     Drinks are available at the bar at reasonable club prices, for which we thank our hosts.

All visitors, Rotarians or not, are always welcome. Fellowship is the name of the game
