Visits to Rotary Club of Jerez de la Frontera

On the 16th of December 2014, eight members of RC Gibraltar drove to Jerez by the kind invitation of President Carolina of RC Jerez. We attended their lunch meeting (3pm-5pm) at the beautiful Hotel Jerez and gave a presentation from our web site showing our activities.

During our 2 hour visit we were welcomed as honoured guests and with all the photo sessions felt like visiting movie stars! Such a warm reception and the meeting of new friends made for a very enjoyable afternoon. We hope to see all our new friends at RC Jerez again soon.
