Linlithgow and District 41 Club celebrated the grand old age of 50 years by holding a Charter Dinner at Linlithgow Golf Club to mark the occasion. The dinner, hosted by club chairman Gordon Smith, was added to by the presence of visitors from Bo’ness, Bathgate and Falkirk 41
Clubs as well as the national president, Phil Ellis. Linlithgow Round Table, from whom 41 Club derives most of its membership was also well represented. The speakers, ex-Provost Jim Carlin, retired businessman Mike Wheatley and ex-Scotland footballer Donald Ford excelled in their speeches and the evening was further enhanced by the dulcet tones of the Linlithgow Rugby Club Choir. The quality of the purvey provided by the golf club’s own caterer was much appreciated and “A thoroughly enjoyable and memorable evening” was the overwhelming consensus of the occasion.
