The Oban Times - - News -

Mem­bers, staff, friends and for­mer col­leagues got to­gether at Glen­cruit­ten Golf Club to cel­e­brate 25 years since the of­fi­cial open­ing of Lorne Re­source Cen­tre. Coun­cil­lors Elaine Robert­son and De­pute Provost Roddy McCuish were guests at the event, at which Mrs Robert­son gave a speech about the be­gin­nings of the re­source cen­tre, in­clud­ing how it was funded and built. Over the years, the re­source cen­tre has un­der­taken a huge num­ber of ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing sail­ing, act­ing, film­ing, drama, danc­ing, car­riage driv­ing, out­ings and awards.

Chris­tine, Janette and Mairi have been with the cen­tre since the days of the pre­vi­ous site and re­mem­ber the move to the Lorne Re­source Cen­tre well. Mrs Robert­son was the oc­cu­pa­tional ther­a­pist and so­cial worker and has since be­come a coun­cil­lor. She was one of the cam­paign­ers who helped get the new cen­tre built.
