Rotarian behind the Badge - Nicholas Butler

Wednesday, 06 Sep 2017

~Considering the short notice for this talk and being up to the wee hours of the morning in preparation (so we were told), we learnt a lot about this Rotarian.
We found out that his first car was a VW beetle somewhat modified and it was lucky to do 60mph downhill with a wind behind.
The first Butler landed in 1822 and was a lawyer and this occupation carried forward for another six generations with Nic’s father being the last in this profession.
He told us about his exploits in sailing, viticulture, winemaking, fishing and aquaculture.
He finally told us his latest venture is to find the source of the Tasmanian Nile.
These presentations by Rotarians always give us an insight into the life of our members and are always well received.
Thanks for a great talk Nic, which from the banter around the tables, it was obvious everyone at the meeting really enjoyed.
