Ro­tar­i­ans cel­e­brate 67th an­nual char­ter din­ner

The Oban Times - - News -

OBAN Rotary Club held its 67th an­nual char­ter din­ner last Friday at the Royal Ho­tel, the char­ter hav­ing been granted on Novem­ber 25, 1949.

As in­di­cated in our pho­to­graph, the event was well at­tended with all con­cerned of the view that it was a very en­joy­able evening.

The in­ten­tion was to have a High­land hos­pi­tal­ity night and the top ta­ble was piped in by young Emma Hill from the Oban High School Pipe Band who was later sup­ported by Morag MacNeill, who sang two well known Gaelic songs to much ap­plause.

The prin­ci­pal guest, Roddy McCuish, area chair­man, de­liv­ered a very hu­mor­ous and en­ter­tain­ing speech. Roddy was also gen­er­ous in his praise of Oban Rotary’s char­i­ta­ble con­tri­bu­tions and called for a closer re­la­tion­ship be­tween Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil and Oban Rotary. A raf­fle was also held and £260 was raised for Chil­dren in Need. The event was ex­cel­lently chaired by club pres­i­dent Gra­ham Fraser.

Ro­tar­i­ans and their guests en­joy the din­ner in the Royal Ho­tel.
