The Rotary Club of King's Lynn celebrated their 90th anniversary with a special ceremony at Town Hall.
The Rotary district governor, Derek Rothwell, presented the club with a unique and much coveted citation certificate from the president of Rotary International, John Germ, who is based in Illinois in the United States.
The ceremony on February 25 was attended by mayor David Whitby, president of Rotary International for Great Britain and Ireland Eve Conway and visiting presidents from local clubs and over 100 Rotarians and guests.
