History made at Merthyr Tydfil Rotary Club

The Rotary club of Merthyr Tydfil - a club which plays a very active part in the local community - has just introduced three new members.
All of its members are special but never in its 87-year history as it had a female member.
There are many female members in Rotary both nationally and internationally but this is the first in Merthyr Tydfil.
Tracey Burke, the centre manager of Cancer Aid Merthyr Tydfil, Huw Williams, a lecturer and historian, and Hywel Samuel, an administrator, were formally introduced as Rotarians at a short ceremony at the club's meeting in October.
The introduction was carried out by District Governor Chris Williams, who oversees some 67 clubs in District 1150 covering Wales.
Chris was impressed by the many ways that the club was involved in the local community and living up to the Rotary motto " Service before Self "
He also thanked the club for its contribution to international relief such as its efforts to eradicate polio in the world.
He was pleased to introduce the first woman member and hoped it would be the first of many in the future.
Neil Morris, the Vice President of the Rotary Club of Merthyr Tydfil, thanked Disrict Governor Chris for his attendance and carrying out the historic introduction ceremony of new members.
