Northern Region Annual Dinner Dance

Rounding off a busy week,  I attended the Northern Region annual dinner dance in the Ramada Hotel,  Shaws Bridge, Belfast.

Gerry Cawley,  chair of the Northern Region,  presided and about 250 people attended.

An unusual innovation,  which proved to be extremely popular,  was two blackjack tables and a roulette table!   Every guest was given "pretend" 100 pound vouchers,  to cash in as chips.  At one stage,  the tables were certainly busier than the dance floor!

A collection was made to raise funds for the emergency shelter box programme of Rotary International,  which has provided over 70,000 such boxes to the people of Haiti.
