Ro­tary scales back sale

Campbeltown Courier - - FRONT PAGE -

AN AGE­ING mem­ber­ship has been cited as one rea­son for the Ro­tary Club of Camp­bel­town can­celling its next sale of the cen­tury.

A Ro­tary spokesper­son said: ‘Be­cause of ill­ness and be­reave­ment among mem­bers, and also be­cause of an age­ing mem­ber­ship, the last sale at the end of Septem­ber this year proved dif­fi­cult.

‘It could not have taken place without the very gen­er­ous help re­ceived from non-Ro­tar­ian friends’

The spokesper­son added: ‘We have 43 mem­bers in the club. With two in their 90s, sev­eral in their 80s and sev­eral more in their 70s.

‘The youngest is Stephen McS­por­ran, a lawyer at C D Mac­tag­garts.

‘The trou­ble is dif­fi­culty in at­tend­ing lunch-time meet­ings.

‘We have tried monthly evening meet­ings, but older mem­bers don’t like driv­ing in the dark.’
