Mem­bers of Cam­bus­lang Ro­tary Club joined with the ladies of In­ner Wheel on Wed­nes­day, April 13 for an en­ter­tain­ing evening.

The guest speaker was Alasdair Seale a for­mer district gov­er­nor from District 1020 ( East of Scot­land) who spoke about his re­cent visit to a Ro­tary project in ru­ral Tan­za­nia.

The project had been set up to build sim­ple but ef­fec­tive wa­ter tanks to col­lect rain wa­ter and pro­vide clean and dis­ease free wa­ter for the lo­cal hospi­tal.

Alasdair’s pre­sen­ta­tion and slides showed how this had been achieved.

Like many such projects it had de­vel­oped far be­yond its orig­i­nal in­ten­tion and in the past few years the Ro­tar­i­ans had also helped ren­o­vate the hospi­tal build­ings, pro­vided new wash­able mat­tresses for all the wards and had also taken out a vast ar­ray of med­i­cal equip­ment and mo­bil­ity aids.

Alasdair spoke pas­sion­ately about his sub­ject and ev­ery­one agreed it was a won­der­ful ex­am­ple of the work over­seas done by Ro­tary In­ter­na­tional.

The au­di­ence then had the plea­sure of lis­ten­ing to lo­cal singing star Anna Hey­wood who is be­ing spon­sored by the Ro­tary Club to en­able her to at­tend a very pres­ti­gious Opera Sum­mer School in Bari, Italy.

First year univer­sity stu­dent Anna sang a se­lec­tion of three pieces which in­cluded an aria from Cosi fan tutte and the clas­sic Can’t help lovin’ dat Man.

A spokesper­son for the Ro­tary club said: “It is fair to say that the au­di­ence were blown away by the qual­ity of her voice and her per­for­mance.

“It was a won­der­ful end to a great evening.”

If any­one would like an­other chance to hear Anna sing she is hold­ing an evening of mu­sic con­cert in Ren­field St Stephens Church on Fri­day, May 6, at 7.30pm.

Tick­ets cost £ 5 and the pro­ceeds will help fund her trip to Italy this sum­mer.
