Ro­tar­i­ans awarded for their ded­i­ca­tion

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

Two Ruther­glen Ro­tar­i­ans were recog­nised for their ser­vice to the or­gan­i­sa­tion and the com­mu­nity at the most re­cent meet­ing of the club.

Brian Cole-Hamil­ton, past sec­re­tary and pres­i­dent of Ruther­glen Ro­tary Club, was pre­sented with an hon­orary mem­ber­ship at the club in recog­ni­tion of his long ser­vice with the or­gan­i­sa­tion.

A com­mu­nity award was also handed over to Bill Wil­son for his sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tions to the lo­cal com­mu­nity in the min­istry and in his work with the Abbey­field care or­gan­i­sa­tion.

Af­ter the awards were handed out, those at the meet­ing were well en­ter­tained by an ex­cel­lent and il­lus­tri­ous speaker in East Kil­bride Ro­tary Club’s pres­i­dent Ian Macpher­son.

He shared some funny and amaz­ing tales of meet­ing the great and the good around the world, from US politi­cians, such as Newt Gin­grich - born a Macpher­son, to fa­mous golfers like Colin Mont­gomerie, all through an in­ter­est in neck­ties.
