Thailand was the theme of March Rotary Club’s International Night
REPRESENTATIVES from the Royal Thai Embassy in London were guests of honour at March Rotary Club’s International Night on Monday, with the room brightly decorated with the flags of Thailand and the United Kingdom.
This year’s International Rotary Conference is being held in Bangkok, so it was fitting that Thailand was the theme of the evening. Guests of honour were Dr. Ekniti Nitithanprapas and his wife Roykaew.
Many pennants from visitors around the world were displayed at the Conservative Club venue, and another was handed over by Murrey and Judith Purvis from New Zealand, who were visiting from South Island.
President John Orbell welcomed everyone attending, including guests from overseas, Rotarians from other clubs, members of Lions clubs, members and friends, Introduced by George White, Dr Nitithanprapas paid tribute to the help and assistance in the form of shelter boxes sent by Rotary Clubs, including March, when the devastating Tsunami hit the Country.
He then gave an audio visual presentation on the historical, social, political, and economic affairs of Thailand, from the 19th Century to the present day. Members were surprised to hear that Triumph Motorcycles have three factories in Thailand. More than 800,000 visitors from the UK visit Thailand each year.
