President Bill hands over the chain of office ... to himself
Cambuslang Rotary Club are gearing up for their new session after a highly successful 2015/16.
The club held their annual handover dinner over the summer.
But in a break with tradition, president Bill Crombie was handing the reigns over to himself, with him staying on for a second term.
Members took advantage of the evening to reflect on another successful year for the club.
They had organised a number of musical and social evenings including the annual Burns Supper in January and also had a weekend away to Dunkeld in May.
In the local community, club members continue to maintain the planters at Cambuslang station and also provide short breaks for carers through their partnership with the Lanarkshire Carers Centre.
This year the club sponsored two local young people; musical student Anna Heywood who was set to attend a summer opera school in Bari, Italy and Kieran O’Boyle who will be going to Nepal on a VSO placement.
In total the club was able to distribute over £5000 to a wide variety of local and international charities and other good causes.
Meetings will resume on Wednesday, August 24, in the King’s Park Hotel for the new session.
A spokesperson said:“Lots of activities are already planned for the new session with more musical nights and the annual Burns Supper on Saturday, January 21, 2017.
“Anyone who is interested in joining Rotary or wanting to know about the work we do can contact the club via our website.”
