Daniel Williams was recently admitted to Rotary International and membership of the Rotary Club of Sandbach by President Dave Lewis.
In proposing Daniel, Rtn Bal Unnithan said that Daniel had long been familiar with Rotary, having for many years been brought to Rotary events by his grandfather, the late Rtn Godfrey Williams, and his grandmother, Inner Wheel member Maureen.
Daniel thanked Rtn Unnithan for proposing him and President Dave Lewis for accepting him into the club. He said that he had recently celebrated his 26th birthday and wondered whether the best part of his life was perhaps now behind him. He said that he had decided, now a member of Rotary, that the best part lay ahead.
By chance, the speaker at the lunchtime meeting was Maureen Williams, an honorary member of the Rotary Club of Sandbach, who took the opportunity to present Daniel with a pair of his grandfathers Rotary cufflinks.
Daniel graduated in Physical Geography and Geology from the University of Plymouth four years ago. His intention was to seek a career in that field but since graduating has taken up the post of project manager at the family firm, Godfrey Williams and Son, Speciality Grocers, of Sandbach.
President Dave Lewis said that he was thrilled to be able to induct a member of the younger generation into the club and pointed out to Daniel that he had already made two significant achievements: by becoming probably the youngest member of the club during the last 70 years and, at a stroke, considerably reducing the average age of the club!
