Rotary session draws to a close
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.
