PDGs Reunions

Swedish Reunion

The annual reunion for the Swedish (and the Norwegian associate member...) "Burgundy Brigade" (Rotary District Governors 2010-11) took place on August 25-27, 2017 - this year hosted by Solveig & Claes Nilsson, District 2370. We stayed at Låsta, a great "farm hotel" (the owners have rebuilt the old barn) south-west of Stockholm. A packed program, including visiting Gripsholm Palace in the beautiful tiny city Mariefred (Pax Maria), visiting Taxinge Palace - with a.o. its modern farming, conference facilities (in the old stable), and famous cake restaurant... However - the most important, as always; having lots of fun, talking and eating & drinking with good friends. Next year the Danes hope to join them.

He answered questions from those attending on the impact of re-zoning, polio eradication and hinted at a theme tie and scarf with a vibrant flora design.

PDG Reunion in Ashland, Oregon

This was the first official fellowship reunion for the 2010-11 Governors (Burgundy Brigade/Generators) in zones 25 & 26. There were about twenty of us landing in Ashland for a weekend of fun, food, theater, frosty beverages, and site seeing. We had so much fun we are looking at gathering again next year on the beautiful island of Catalina, California.
