While the Rotary Club of Bishopdale Burnside recently celebrated 50 years, it also celebrated 50 years in Rotary for Founding Member Robin Mundy. We took the time out to ask Robin a few questions.

Why did you join Rotary?

My father was a Rotarian at Belfast Rotary so I had an understanding of how Rotary operates. We were living and vegetable farming in Harewood 50 years ago when I was invited to join a new club opening in Bishopdale.

You have been in Rotary 50 years – what has kept you there?

Meeting people once a week from all walks of life . The opportunity to give something back to the community.

What were some of your highlights over those 50 years?

A personal achievement was attending 100% for 25 years.
