The club Annual Ball took place on 30th January 2016 in the Ballroom of the Grand Hotel in Sopot.
As usual it was a great success enjoyed by our members, their partners and friends, our sponsors and our guests from our partner club, Hannover Balhof and members from other Tri-city clubs.

I am very pleased to announce that our candidate for the one year scholarship under the programme for the year 2016 -2017, Miss Maria Jozwicka, has been awarded a scholarship to attend Georgia Gwinnette College in Lawrenceville, Georgia. Our congratulations to her on her success.
Today the opening ceremony of our project for the Homeless and disadvantaged took place. The pictures show Sopot Mayor Jacek Karnowski declaring the project open together with various local dignitaries and Members of our Club who were able to attend.
The Project which provided all the furniture and equipment for the Home has been funded by our Club and our Partner Club, Hannover Balhof, together with a Matching Grant from Rotary International.
We wish all of its new residents a better future.
It was with great sadness that this morning that I learned that Ryszard has passed away. It was Ryszard who approached me to help him in setting up an English speaking Rotary Club in Sopot after his term as District Governor finished. Our Club is one of his legacies. Our thoughts go out to his family and his huge number of friends at this very sad time. May he rest in Peace.
