A chance meeting between a member of the Rotary Club of King’s Lynn collecting in Lynn town centre and Bulgarian Rotarian Sotir Sotirov, led to him attending a club meeting.
Sotir, from the Rotary Club of Provadia, Bulgaria, is visiting his daughter in Lynn. Sotir naturally recognised the Rotary emblem and asked his son-in-law, Tihomir Todorov, to introduce him to Sam O’Callaghan, who promptly invited both men to a Rotary meeting, which appropriately happened to be the club’s Christmas dinner. After being welcomed by vice-president Michael Pellizzaro, Sotir, speaking through Tihomir, brought greetings from his club and spoke of his pleasure at being able to attend Rotary here. President Keith Boyce, is pictured presenting Sotir with a club banner, with Tihomir, left.
