Pres­i­dent Bill hands over the chain of of­fice ... to him­self

Rutherglen Reformer - - Dance 2016 -

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.”
