history of our club to become President for a second time.
Roger Ireland, is the New President of the Rotary Club of Barnstaple and took over from Brian Kettle at the lunchtime meeting on Thursday 26th June.
Roger held the presidency once before in 1995/96 and after Presidents C.W. Bran- ham (1928/29 & 1940/41) and E.J. Taylor (1941/42/43) he becomes only the 3rd
person to have been president twice. As can be seen, the 2 previous occasions were both during WW2. Lets hope Roger will keep the peace!
