Ro­tary ses­sion draws to a close

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Kenny Smith

Cam­bus­lang Ro­tary Club marked the end of their 2014/15 ses­sion when mem­bers and their guests met for the club’s an­nual han­dover din­ner.

Amongst the guests were Clark Scarff and Sheila McCrae who had come all the way from the Ro­tary Club of Ger­ald­ton Gree­nough of Western Aus­tralia – def­i­nitely the fur­thest trav­elled visi­tors of the year!

Af­ter the meal Pres­i­dent Robert Dickie per­formed his fi­nal of­fi­cial duty of the ses­sion by in­tro­duc­ing next ses­sion’s in­com­ing pres­i­dent Bill Crom­bie and for­mally hand­ing him the pres­i­den­tial chain of of­fice.

Bill in his turn con­grat­u­lated Robert on lead­ing the club in what had been a very suc­cess­ful year with over £8000 be­ing raised for good causes through var­i­ous events such as the Sports­man’s Din­ner, Burns Supper and other so­cial func­tions.

Bill then spoke about some of his own aims and plans for the next Ro­tary year. One of the early high­lights will be the Aonach Ea­gach Chal­lenge (a dou­ble Munro and ridge scram­ble) which Bill is un­der­tak­ing in Au­gust to raise money for the club’s char­i­ties fund.

Other events in the di­ary are the Burns Supper in Jan­uary and a week­end away to Dunkeld in May. Bill closed the meet­ing by wish­ing his au­di­ence an en­joy­able sum­mer break and invit­ing ev­ery­one to join in the tra­di­tional Ro­tary toast.

Reg­u­lar club meet­ings will re­sume on Wed­nes­day, Au­gust 19, at the King’s Park Ho­tel but any­one wish­ing more in­for­ma­tion about the work of the Ro­tary both in Cam­bus­lang and the wider world can con­tact the club through their web­site.
