When you are called apon to give the thanksgiving, you need to give a short approximately 1 – 2 minute “Thanksgiving” before dinner. (check the time allocated to you on the agenda).
It is not necessary to go and stand in the front of the room, you may stand where you have been seated if you so wish.
This can be based on anything of importance that is happening around us, something that we can all relate to, and to give thanks for, including the meal that has been prepared for us.
Note: We are a very mixed club, comming from all Creeds, Cultures and Religions. Therefore it is up to the person who is presenting the Thanksgiving whether they wish to actually pray or not. It is important that we respect eachothers points of view.
